As the Bump Grows: Week 18

As the Bump Grows: Week 18

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 4

It’s the week I’ve been waiting for! I’m seriously counting down to Thursday and that’s pretty much all I’ve been thinking about since I made the appointment. I’ve also been fixated on baby/pregnancy items and home decor for some reason. Nesting instincts, maybe? And now for the belly shot: I don’t think my belly size has changed much in the last couple of weeks. I actually went shopping today though… Read more »

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Fatigue

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Fatigue

Pregnancy, Pregnancy Diary 4

Hello, again! So, in addition to all that nausea mess that I experienced most of my first trimester, I also dealt with crazy fatigue! I swear, I practically slept all day and night during those months, when I wasn’t working, of course! But yeah, trying to get through a typical day was pretty brutal. The nausea made me feel like crap, and I just didn’t have any energy. And usually… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 12

I am settling in to the 4th month now, it seems. I don’t know about you, but I feel like time is moving by so slowly. I kind of want to fast forward through all this and get to the good stuff, like when the baby comes, lol. But, I should also savor every day since it’s my last pregnancy. Ugh, I have so many conflicting thoughts and emotions going… Read more »

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Nausea

Pregnancy Symptoms This Time Around: Nausea

Pregnancy, Pregnancy Diary 1

So we all know nausea is one of the inevitable symptoms of pregnancy. Those hormones really know how to wreck your body. Well, with my past two pregnancies, I didn’t really have much of a problem with it. If memory serves me correctly, I felt queasy for about 2-3 weeks and things cleared up fine. And I think I only vomited a couple times with the first pregnancy. Baby #3,… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 4

Wow! Can’t believe I’m starting another pregnancy diary! If you missed the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, check it out. I’m starting this one a little earlier than I did with my previous one, but that’s mostly because I couldn’t wait to start chronicling this pregnancy, since it’ll be my last. And now for the belly shot: I know I look pretty big already and I’ll admit it’s 2/3 of my fat and… Read more »

Baby #3 is on the Way!

Baby #3 is on the Way!

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy, Pregnancy Diary 26

You read that one right! I’ve been holding this in for quite awhile now and have been DYING to shout it out to the world. We’re pregnant with Baby #3! Yay! Although we haven’t told the whole world yet, we’ve slowly told people we’ve seen as the months have progressed. I just figured I’d go ahead and announce it here on the blog now because I wanted to start doing… Read more »

Pregnancy Changes You…Or At Least, It Changed Me

Pregnancy Changes You…Or At Least, It Changed Me

On My Mind, Pregnancy 11

For those of you who don’t know, I’m a creature of habit. I like my daily routines and anything slightly outside the norm, although I do adapt, can cause me to feel uncomfortable and makes me long to get things back on track. I’m even more habitual when it comes to food, often eating the same thing for lunch or dinner for like a month and finding the dish tastes… Read more »

Blogoversary Celebration: The Best Of – Pregnancy & Baby

Blog Related, Pregnancy Diary 0

Ah, finally, the real and original reason I started this blog. After 5 years, things in our life were settling down and it was the perfect time to start trying to get pregnant. But of course, you don’t have babies on your own schedule, you work around Mother Nature’s schedule. It was a grueling and tedious year, but things worked out for us and I was pregnant! I really don’t… Read more »

The Bump Tales 14

Yep that’s right, it’s time once again for The Bump Tales, as I jump into Week 38! I can’t believe BG2 will be here in less than 2 weeks! I really want to meet her and my body really wants a break from being pregnant, haha, so I’m quite on edge, to say the least.
