In response to that post, I was asked to create a followup post on what to eat while breastfeeding. Like pregnancy, lactation requires increased calories… Continue reading What to Eat While Breastfeeding
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.

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.

I had no idea how much work it is to be pregnant!
As of today I am 12 weeks! I am so happy to be coming out of the first trimester. I've heard a lot of good things about second trimester so my hopes are somewhat high that I'll be feeling better and more energized. Today I wanted to take a moment and share how my first trimester has been.
