Lyla is six weeks old and I finally feel like I'm emerging from the postpartum fog. I expected birthing her to be hard but I was not prepared for the unique and unexpected trials of postpartum life. Of course, I'm so happy to have my sweet daughter but I'm not enjoying the challenges postpartum has… Continue reading Everything No One Told Me About Postpartum

I'm currently 38 weeks pregnant and 6 days. We are one day short of a week from my due date of October 17! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by after the beginning stages feeling like they lasted forever. Alas, we are all ready for Baby K (thanks in part to the generosity of my baby shower) and are so anxious to meet her and introduce her to everyone.
In lieu of being 37 weeks tomorrow and officially early term over preterm, I thought it was time to give one last pregnancy update. I was thinking about my third-trimester experiences compared to previous trimesters and I think this trimester just may be my favourite. Although at times I feel really uncomfortable, hot, tired and don't… Continue reading 3rd Trimester Update
One of the benefits to being pregnant is eating more! Although it can be easy to indulge choosing healthy foods will benefit you + baby long term.
Almost from the beginning of my pregnancy, I knew we were having a girl. I was 99% sure, even Michael had an inkling our baby was a girl. We even bought a pink snowsuit on clearance back in February because I was so certain. Now I cannot wait to see our babe in her soft, cuddly snowsuit this winter! ❤ I'm also excited to buy tons of bows! If you know of any good Etsy shops (that ship to Canada) please leave a comment! I just adore baby's in bows.
Before I found out I was expecting I could not wait to pregnant. I used to tell my husband that "I would be so happy if I was pregnant!" because I just knew that pregnancy would be amazing like everyone says and plus you get this cute bump to show off. I had no idea how much work it is to be pregnant!
I'm officially feeling pretty normal (finally!). Although I do still get sick some mornings since I have stopped taking Diclectin. However, other than getting sick once or twice a week I have been feeling really good. Exciting things about the second trimester: feeling the baby move! Last week (20 weeks) I was sitting in my… Continue reading Second Trimester Update (21W2D)
