Oh my we’re into the 30’s now, that means I’m into my last quarter of pregnancy! I’m not going to lie I’m pretty much ready to be done being pregnant now. I mean I really can’t complain, I haven’t had any major issues or problems, but I also am not one of those people who loves being pregnant either. I’m ready to have control of my body back and it would be really nice to not wake up in the middle of the night with brutal heartburn (I realize all the people who’ve had babies are probably laughing at me right now, I have no idea what I’m in for!)

As you can see my resolution to post consistently and grow my blog is going really well so far! I seem to have dropped down to only once a week or less of posting, I’ll try and be better I promise.
Lots happening pregnancy wise, I’ve definitely popped out now and have all the discomforts to go with it. Continue reading
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
We’ve been getting into the holiday spirit lately, doing lots of Christmas themed activities. We went to the Toronto Christmas Market last week which I actually just found out is one of the top rated Christmas markets in the world. We go every year and if you happen to ever be in Toronto in mid-November to December then I highly recommend you give it a go. Unfortunately I couldn’t have any mulled wine this year, but the hot chocolate was pretty good too. Continue reading
It feels like shit is starting to get real. It’s crazy to think that in the next couple of weeks if the baby were to be born she could potentially survive. Obviously I would like her to stay in there a while longer and I’m not trying to trivialize the experience of parents with pre-term babies. But, it does make it feel more real, like she’s a real squirmy baby in there rather than a little tadpole, alien thing. Continue reading
As you can see I’ve been keeping a pregnancy journal just for myself and I’m a little behind on my updates for the blog, I’m 22 + 5 as I write this post. 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!
We’re halfway there!
Baby Size: Artichoke + Mango. Don’t get me started on the whole baby size as a fruit thing… I’m twenty weeks now and apparently the baby is the size of a banana, but at thirty weeks it’ll somehow be the size of a zucchini, aren’t they the same size!?!? I know, I know, I should just let it go. Continue reading
I’m all about trying new things so this week I’m trying something a little different. I always see variations of these type of posts across all sorts of blogs and I thought I’d add my two cents about things that I’m loving right now. Let me know in the comments if you like to read this sort of thing.
Don’t get between a pregnant girl and her ice cream.
Baby Size: Orange + Pomegranate, sometimes I wonder about these size transitions and if they’re actually getting bigger. At 18 weeks the baby is now the size of an artichoke, is an artichoke really bigger than a pomegranate?
