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 […]


20 Weeks

Half way there! I can’t believe I’m 5 months. Shit is getting real! Eric and I keep saying that we wish time would slow down because there are so many things we want to do before the baby arrives. This is going to be one busy summer. One thing on our wish list is to […]


21 Weeks

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 […]


22 Weeks

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 […]


23 Weeks

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 […]


24 Weeks

[hi Sketchie!!] Hello, 6 months!! Can you tell I’ve been eating a lot of watermelon lately? hah. Six months feels like a huge milestone in my pregnancy. I feel very blessed and thankful for my baby & body. My absolute favourite experience is when I feel her kick; it honestly makes me happy so many […]


25 Weeks

It was fun to do a few pictures in the nursery this week to give you a glimpse of how it’s coming along! I hope to post a few more progress pictures in here over the next few months. It will be a nice keepsake to look back on. Eric finished painting three of the […]


26 Weeks

Only 1.5 weeks left of the second trimester. Where does the time go? How I’m feeling: Happy and content most of the time (sometimes I feel downright euphoric), with a tinge of pms-like moodiness that rears its ugly head every now and then, hah. Sleep has been a challenge lately. Baby girl likes to wake […]


27 Weeks

I had an ultrasound this week to check on my low lying placenta. Baby girl clocked in at 2.5 pounds. The 27 week average is 1.93 pounds so she’s gaining nicely. I was given a new due date of Sept 17th rather than the 22nd, but they stressed that it’s only an estimate at best. […]


28 Weeks

When I told one of my girlfriends that I was pregnant several months ago, I remember her saying, “pregnancy is an emotional journey”. At the time, I didn’t fully grasp the meaning behind it, but as the months unfold I now see how right she is. Each week, month, and trimester have brought new challenges […]
