(13 weeks until arrival) Baby weighs about 2lbs. About the size of a teddy bear. How’s that for unspecific? About 14.5inches long. My uterus is the size of a basketball! I would prefer food references, because it’s been a very long time since I’ve so much as seen a basketball therefore I’m not sure EXACTLY… Continue reading 27 Weeks Pregnant
Moving Day. After 8 months of construction, our house is ready to move into. I was aware that I was 26 weeks pregnant. I was being careful. Even so, I took a spill over our old metal bed frame while carrying some clothes. I started cramping a bit, but I tried not to panic. That… Continue reading A Fall & A Scare
Ooooh, so exhausting… I don’t think we’ve ever made such an Ikea trip. So. Much. Stuff. I was so tired by the end that I found a chair in the warehouse and just waited while dear Mike did all of the fetching, heaving, and huffing/puffing… I’m so excited to start putting the nursery together!

Kindly knock on everything around you that is made of wood for me) then hospitals would take every life-saving measure from this point on. Speaking of which, the internet is DEFINITELY concerned about preterm labour. Everywhere I… Continue reading 24 Weeks Pregnant
I eat healthy, or try to. I am aware of the importance of what I put into my body and my responsibility to properly nourish Baby while he grows inside of me. With that said, sometimes you just have to have an ice cream cone for lunch. At this time, it had to be Chocolate… Continue reading Pregnancy Perk: Ice Cream Lunch
Well, after all that excitement about the strength and development of Baby’s movement leading up to week 22, I had a distressing last weekend wherein Baby seemed to have disappeared. All reasonable explanations (baby turned around in a way that I couldn’t feel him, I was too busy to notice the movements, baby was having… Continue reading 23 Weeks Pregnant
