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….

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…

The Marathon That Won’t Happen

I signed up to run the full marathon in Nashville quite awhile ago. I was all pumped up about it, had my training plan ready to go, and was focused. Then… life happened. (Also, a reason I haven’t posted as much!) I wanted to share my journey of returning to run a marathon after pregnancy, all about my training runs, and how I was doing. But the truth is, life just got crazy. We moved (which was a lot more…

What I’ve been cooking up lately: Baby food!

There are numerous things I looked forward to when I found out I was pregnant.  And with my beliefs on food, one of them was being able to make homemade baby food.  I hate that there are so many chemicals and crazy things in our food so I want to start my daughter’s life in a healthy way.  Knowing that I’m making the food means I know exactly what’s in there. I enjoy cooking sometimes but I wouldn’t call myself…

Check-In: Six Months Post Baby

Six months.  Our little girl is already 6 months old.  I can’t believe it.  It seems like it’s gone so fast but at the same time, so slow. If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I thought I would be at this point, it’s pretty laughable.  I would tell you that my baby would be completely sleeping through the night, I would be fitting back in my favorite pair of jeans, and would have being Super Mom…
