Good-bye Sleep, Hello Baby Feet

Today was a very long day. It's not easy to go to work and do all that is needed to be done on a Monday when super exhausted. I didn't sleep well at all last night. It's the worst night of sleep so far this pregnancy. I went to bed around 10:30pm


A Look At The Growing Belly Of The Second Trimester

Recently I've heard more comments about the size of my baby bump and have been catching more people staring at it too. This makes me happy to know I'm showing more and it's more obvious that I'm preggo and not just fat! When I got dressed on Saturday to go to a


Coping With Gestational Diabetes: The Beginning

I have got to stop procrastinating and write about this already. Heck, dealing with gestational diabetes (aka GD) is one of the reasons I wanted to blog about my pregnancy. It seems like there is a lot of misinformation and even NON-information out there, either that or a lot of pregnant women


Things I’m Fearful Of As A First Time Mom

It's normal to have worries and fears throughout pregnancy. Especially as a first time mom, there's a lot of unknowns out there. I do know that some of the things I'm fearful of or worry about are out of my control, some are in my control, and most things will work out


To All The Pregnant Ladies (Video)

I saw this mentioned over at yesterday and got a kick out of it. I'm impressed with her moves… she's 38 weeks pregnant in this video. I was like, damn, I could barely walk in heels pre-pregnancy, let alone dance like this!


More Nursery Decorating!

This morning I decided to tackle a little more decorating. Last weekend, Brian hung the wooden letters for babygirl's initials. Yesterday we went to Babies R Us to update some registry items (the stroller I originally selected was discontinued and we're not ready to buy one). I picked up a photo frame


Anatomy Ultrasound, Round 2

This morning we went in to finish the anatomy ultrasound. I asked babygirl nicely to cooperate with positioning while we were driving to the appointment. Thankfully, she listened. This time she was head down (I thought I felt an increase in pressure in my lower abdomen!) and not quite as scrunched up.


Nursery Progress!

The holiday weekend was quite productive. We did some good housecleaning (not just surface-get-rid-of-clutter-cleaning). With the help of some friends, the nursery is now painted! Brian also put together my glider, so it's starting to look like a nursery, which I find very exciting. Be warned, this post will be a bit


Baby Likes To Rock Out

I have discovered that our little girl likes to rock out. The first time I felt movement was during our 3ish hour ride home from my parents' house Memorial Day weekend. Of course, we were listening to lots of rock and metal music. I mean, that's just the norm for us. Those


Baby Forecast: Mostly Pink

We had an interesting time getting our ultrasound today. At first our child was being modest by covering her privates with her hands… but eventually those hands moved. The tech seemed pretty confident it was a girl, pointing out the dots and lines that form little girl parts. So we're pretty excited!
