The First Trimester

I’m sitting down on a Friday night writing this first entry and I’m currently 18 weeks pregnant. Suddenly, the first trimester feels like ages ago. I meant to start writing earlier, but with everything that’s happened since January, well, here we are. I seriously can’t believe how quickly it’s flying by! I’m sure I won’t […]

Prenatal Workouts: Part 1

I always wanted to be one of those pregnant women who soared through the first trimester, completing the usual workout routine like it was no big deal. Well, that couldn’t have been further from my own experience! Once the nausea and fatigue hit between 6-14 weeks, I couldn’t even fathom working out. I did a […]

18 + 19 Weeks

18 weeks: 19 weeks: Nope, it’s not just the horizontal stripes, the belly has popped! Apparently, baby is around 6 inches now, or the size of a mango. This probably explains why I’ve been so hungry lately. The highlight of this week was finding out the sex at the anatomy scan. We’re currently sharing the […]

Nursery “Before” Pictures

After a struggle to come up with a color scheme for the nursery, we’ve finally narrowed it down to a couple options – and also decided on a layout too. This is major progress for us because Eric and I are both the most indecisive people on the planet! We have a lot of fun […]

Friday marked my last birthday before I’ll officially be a mom. Crazy stuff. I can only imagine how different our lives will be this time next year. I said to Eric that I just wish it was time already because I want to meet her so much. I keep picturing her in my arms and […]

Baby is now about 1 pound and almost 11 inches long. We’re getting there! This week I had a lunch meeting to attend and I tried on just about every shift dress in my closet to see if anything would work. This is what you call being in total denial…hah. You should have seen me […]

Eric felt the baby kick for the first time this week! It might be one of my all-time favourite moments that we’ve shared together. He was so genuinely excited and surprised. I’m so happy that he finally got to feel this crazy circus going down in my belly. Lately at night we stare at my […]
