33 Weeks

This week was sooooo not the best week. Anyone with me? I’m eager to be moving on to a fresh week. Almost anything that could’ve gone wrong this week did, including a few issues with our kitchen reno. I know it will all work out in the end, but it’s hard not to get worn […]

[Thanks to Eric for this week’s iphone pic!] In just over a month I could be holding our sweet little girl in my arms for the first time. Time is flying! I find myself saying to Eric, “Can you believe there is a BABY in there…a real, live baby…who gets hiccups, sucks her thumb, and […]

Hello! How is your weekend going? As I write this post, I am one day short of 36 weeks and just 1 week shy of being full-term. Speed that up by almost a week if you go by my ultrasound due date (Sept 17th) rather than the LMP due date (Sept 22). Everyone keeps telling […]

36 Weeks

Hello and happy Friday of the long weekend! Nesting is happening, but in random spurts. Most of the time I’m just thinking about how annoying the clutter/mess is and then doing absolutely nothing about it. Don’t you wish it was the man who got the nesting urge? I sure do! When I feel inspired, I’m […]

My sweet baby, You are officially full term!! I can’t believe we are so close to meeting you. You’ve been growing for almost 3/4 of a year in my belly. Look how big you’ve gotten. It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that I’m walking around all day with a full size baby […]

Last Thursday, I woke up in the middle of the night with a very strong pain that wrapped around my entire lower back and front. I’ve read about real contractions feeling like a […]

I was procrastinating this week’s post because I thought there might be a slight chance I wouldn’t have to write it! But lo and behold, here we are just 1.5 days shy of 40 weeks. Baby girl is quite cozy in my belly, it seems! I guess it’s pretty common for first timers to think […]

Welcome Home Adriana

I’m bursting with joy to tell you that our baby girl, Adriana, arrived Sunday September 21st at 1:34pm, weighing 7 pounds and 20 inches in length. She decided to arrive 1 day before her due date – fooling her mama entirely because by that point I was convinced she was coming a week late. Not […]

Life with a Baby: Weeks 1+2

It probably sounds silly, but I already feel nostalgic for the passing days of this super sweet newborn stage. Everyone is warning me about how fast the newborn stage goes and I want to cry when I think about how quickly the days are flying by. There’s just something incredibly beautiful about a tiny human […]

Adriana’s Birth Story

The day I went into labour, I had a major burst of energy. I heard about this from so many women (including my own mom) during my pregnancy and sure enough, I got it too. Despite my bump that got in the way of just about everything, in my own mind there wasn’t anything I […]
