PREGNANCY UPDATE: Week 38 (13 days to go)

People! I’m 38 weeks +1 day pregnant! I’ve been growing a baby now for 267 days, I’m 8.8 months pregnant, in my 9th month of this pregnancy… and all I really want is for this baby to be laying in my arms right now! I’m over this whole pregnant belly thing, over answering all the random inappropriate questions at the grocery store with perfect strangers, I’m over it all! Trying to remind myself to enjoy it as this time will be the last time. Last time for feeling baby kicks from the inside, last time I will have this life-size growing belly, and the last time I find myself constantly […]

PREGNANCY: New Baby Must Have’s

  Depending on what kind of person you’re, this list could be short and sweet or it can be roll-out onto the floor long, for it’s somewhere in the middle. I like to be prepared and ready for all that could come by way, I’d rather be overly stocked on all thing newborn baby than get stuck without in a moment in need. How I justify it is if I don’t need it a friend will. So without further ado, here is what I consider New Baby Must Have Items: 1// You plan on going out with baby don’t you? This Window Shade by Munchkin has got to be in your vehicle at […]

FEATURE: Big Sister Bag

Whenever I think about Sofia first meeting her sister I get all sappy. These days especially, I can cry in a split-second when I think of the first times she sets eyes on her baby sister and all the emotions come flowing. It’s this very moment that had me think about just how important it is that it be documented, and not just from MY view.  I got the idea of a Big Sister Bag from another mama-blogger, Kelly from Gav + Ro, she put together the sweetest little backpack filled with fun items her son would be able to use (and snack on) at the hospital […]

PREGNANCY: Day in the Life of Gestational Diabetes

…I am beyond determined to manage my Gestational Diabetes with diet and exercise just as I did with my first pregnancy. I will do all I can to ensure insulin intervention is not needed, this is my word! This is how I entered into my appointments with my Gestational Diabetes Team after being diagnosed last month. As hard as it was to swallow the fact that I was again going to be struggling with this diagnosis, I was determined to ensure baby and me were going to be just fine. I did it before, I can do it again right? Well sorta’, if only pregnancy were the same, if […]

PREGNANCY UPDATE: Week 33 (49 days to go)

5 weeks has passed us and I think a Pregnancy Update is in order, wouldn’t you agree? We’ve had lots of changes in those 4 weeks including a 6lb weight loss, thankfully I am on a close watch with the Dietitians and Gestational Diabetes Doctors and they’ve reassured me baby is still growing at a normal pace and this was just because of the diet change. I am down to seeing them only once a week which is nice, makes it way easier when I am dragging poor Sofia along to the appointments, that and the fact that they’re at the Hospital. I always worry that Sofia will […]
