Adjusting to TWO

I thought I would write a post about how life is now that I have two little ones. A lot of people told me that when you have your second child it’s not twice as hard but ten times as hard. I agree and disagree with this. A lot of it is as expected. I feel more comfortable with a baby this time around since I’ve done it before. I also enjoy the moments I have more because I know…

Pregnancy #2 Recap: Health, Fitness, and Weight

I thought I would do a quick post on how my health and fitness was overall during pregnancy #2 since I actually get this question a lot. I wasn’t as diligent with my workouts and health as I was with my first pregnancy because, well, I have a toddler. But, I was pretty close to being just as active especially considering I was chasing said toddler around all. the. time. I kept up with my running mostly. I was running…

Today I Didn’t Cry

I didn’t cry today. I didn’t shed one tear. Why is this significant? Because yesterday, I cried. Yesterday, I cried a lot. I cried when the baby kept waking up at night and my husband wasn’t there to help me because he’s gone for work. I cried when the baby then woke up at 4 am and fussed for about 4 hours straight. I cried when my toddler hit me and threw water at me. I cried when my toddler…

Mason’s Birth Story

My second labor was very different from my first. With my daughter, Adyson, my water broke naturally and she was born 3 1/2 weeks early (but perfectly healthy!). This time, Mason decided he liked it in my belly a lot more and stuck around for a bit longer. However, we did end up forcing him out since I was induced. Being induced was not something I wanted. Nothing against anyone else who chooses this but I just felt that I…

22 Week Update – Baby #2

(Picture from The Bump) I thought I would give a little update on how pregnancy is going so far. I am 22 weeks (and 3 days if we want to get technical) right now so well into the second trimester and over halfway there! Overall, I’m feeling pretty good except for some minor aches and pains from the growing belly. I feel like it really grew over the past week or so. Nutrition I am eating pretty well. I generally…

Morning Sickness Relief: My experience taking Diclegis

I’ve mentioned in some recent posts that my morning sickness was in full force during the first trimester of this pregnancy. Worse than it was with the first one. It was so bad that I had to call the doctor, wave the white flag, and ask for something to help me get through the day. (Photo via firsttimemommy.net) My doctor prescribed me Diclegis. I was hesitant to take anything honestly because I just hate the thought of putting any medication…
