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…

My Fitness Routine During Pregnancy – Baby #2

My first pregnancy with my daughter was fairly comfortable (as far as pregnancies go), I had a good amount of energy for the most part, and I had a really great labor (5 1/2 hours total and she was here!). I truly think the reason for all this is because I exercised my entire pregnancy. So this time I plan to do the same – mostly. The first trimester is a just-do-whatever-you-can time for me. I did whatever I could…

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…

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…
