40 Week Pregnancy Update!

Well, my friends, I wasn’t sure I’d get to write this post, but here we are and I’m still pregnant! I’ll be 40 weeks tomorrow (Thanksgiving Day!), so technically I’m not quite 40 weeks, but close enough. ;) As you guys know, we have a C section scheduled for Friday because the baby is still breech, although of course she could decide to make her Continue Reading …

How to Have a Stress-Free Holiday Eating Experience

I share a variation of this post on how to have a stress-free holiday eating experience almost every year, but it’s worth re-sharing because I know it’s something that’s on some of your minds right now, what with Thanksgiving coming up and the December holiday party season after that.

Weekend Recap + Breech Update

Hi guys! Our weekend was really low key but nice – we tried to do stuff that will be hard for awhile with a baby (aka meals out, movie-watching (finally watched “Lion” via Netflix – it was really good), relaxing, etc.), plus lots of long dog walks to get fresh air. I have a ton of fitness-friendly maternity clothing for hot weather, but it got Continue Reading …
