Pregnancy Journal: 24 Weeks Already?

It didn't really hit me how soon my baby will be here until the other day. 24 weeks isn't quite the home stretch yet, but I'm only a few weeks away from starting the third trimester. Last time that part of my pregnancy seemed to FLY BY. I was so busy with


The True Tales From the Nursery Blog Birth Story

I've shared before about why I started Tales From the Nursery and how I came up with the name, but up until now, I've left out the real driving force behind why I started it. It's nothing bad (how could starting this blog be bad?), but I want to share it with


Pregnancy Journal: 23 Weeks!

Rissa is too sweet and gives the “baby” hugs and kisses. It's hard to get a picture of her doing this with my bump but it's adorable. However she's not understanding that she can't be climbing my bump! Knees and elbows and too much pressure smooshing down hurts! I tried to hold


Pregnancy Journal: 22 Weeks!

Well, I survived BlogHer12 while pregnant! I heard from several people that they didn't know how I could do it, but hey…there were mamas even farther along than me there! It was a lot of walking and standing and lots of “no thank yous” to offers of wine, champagne and various snacks.


Why is Our Logo Blue?

If you haven't stopped by the blog for awhile, you may have missed the subtle hint about baby #2. Our normal logo looks like this: But after my 20 week ultrasound my husband changed it to this: That's right! We believe we are expecting a boy! I know I didn't officially announce


Pregnancy Journal: 21 weeks and a New Maternity Dress!

I really wish this Wisconsin weather would make up its mind! One day it's nice, next day there's a heat advisory, then rinse and repeat. I do not like the heat advisories while pregnant since I'm already running hotter than everyone around me! Add in a toddler who likes to snuggle and


Pregnancy Journal: Due Date Change & Ultrasound! (20wks)

I feel like my belly hasn't grown much but every picture update does make it look bigger, doesn't it? I'm so glad I got some new maternity clothes. I definitely can't fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans anymore! When is this baby due again? Based on my last period, my due date was


Checking Out Maternity Fashions at Small Concept

If there's one thing I learned about being pregnant … it's that there are fashionable maternity clothes out there. You just have to know where to find them! Ling gone are the days of frumpy and bulky maternity wear. We are pregnant and already feeling big as a whale. I am not


Pregnancy Journal: Halfway There! (20 weeks)

I can't believe I'm finally 20 weeks. With my first pregnancy, it felt like it took forever, but then the second half flew by. I have a feeling it'll be like that with this one as well. Now that I officially have gestational diabetes again, all those extra appointments to check on


More Gender Prediction Tests!

Last week I shared some old wives tales that focused more on things like cravings and appearance. Now I want to share a few other gender prediction test methods I've found in my search. I couldn't believe how many involved peeing on things! From what I understand, urine does not contain any
