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…

First Trimester Recap – Baby #2

I’ve always heard people say that all pregnancies are different. This is definitely true in my case! I am already 17 weeks and into the second trimester but wanted to share how the first trimester went in this second pregnancy. It was definitely different in many ways and honestly, a lot harder. I wrote a post about how I found out I was pregnant with this baby and how during the marathon I noticed I kept feeling short of breath….

In The Trenches

I’m always 8 steps behind (maybe 10, maybe even 20). I can’t keep up. My thought process the other day when a little like this: I have to get my clothes to the dry cleaners by tonight or they won’t be ready by Tuesday and then I won’t have anything to wear for work. But I need to pick up diapers for Ady. I will do all this on the way home. But I need to be home by 4:30…

When you run a marathon… and then find out you’re pregnant

I ran the Chicago Marathon (my 4th marathon) back in October. In my recap post I talked about how the race did not go as planned and I did so much worse than I thought I would. These things happen in any race and to any runner but there were a number of factors I identified that led to my poor performance. What I didn’t realize at the time was that one of those factors was that I was pregnant!…

Where Have I Been?!?

The short answer is: busy, pregnant, and figuring things out. Things have just gotten really busy in our house and I have been working on prioritizing things. This is actually one of my specialties (I’m pretty good at time management). You know how you have moments in life where you just feel like you are constantly behind? That’s where I was and I just needed some time off to catch up. I can’t say I’m fully caught up on everything…

Nashville Moment: Gentry’s Farm

The other weekend we went to Gentry’s Farm in Franklin with some of my family. It’s been a long time since I have been to any sort of farm or pumpkin patch. It was the first weekend it opened and it was a great thing for the kids to do. I really liked this place and it’s a great fall activity for the family. I like that you pay at the door (kids under 2 are free!) and then that’s…
