Pregnancy Update: Weeks 26 + 27

I’ve had a bit of a stressful week this week as I failed my one-hour gestational diabetes glucose screen and had to do the longer fasting test. I’m still waiting to get the results back from that second test and have been worrying a lot about what will happen if I fail this one as well. I know there’s no point being stressed out as there’s not really anything that I can do about it, but I’m still nervous. I’d really like to just know one way or the other. Continue reading

Pregnancy Update: Weeks 24 + 25

Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately, I’ve gotten busy with the holidays as I’m sure all of you have been.

I’m hoping to continue this journal as a baby book once the baby arrives, and yes I know my writing is illegible, my partner Greg tells me that all the time! I’m not super artistic, but I’m inspired by all the amazing bullet journal artists there are out there, do a search for bullet journal (or ‘bujo’) on Instagramm or Pinterest and you’ll see what I mean!

Eating While Pregnant – 2nd Trimester

Originally when I was first planning this post I was going to do a What I Ate Wednesday sort of post. Back when I was attempting to blog previously, in around 2014 or so, the WIAW thing seemed to be what everyone was doing, it seems to have faded in popularity. Anyway as I began planning the post, I was thinking about what I would eat the day of my post and instead of it being an accurate reflection of what I was actually eating it became my interpretation of what I thought I was supposed to be eating.
