Biweekly Update: 28 Weeks

Time for another update. The third trimester is in full swing and I’m feeling much of the same. I did have some sharp lower abdominal pain on my right side 3 days in a row this week. I’m pretty sure it’s round ligament pain. It only lasted maybe 5-10 minutes each time but if it keeps coming back or lasts …

What I Ate Today

Time for another fabulous “What I Ate Today” post! Entering the third trimester and I’m still feeling good physically and able to eat pretty healthy the majority of the time. My willpower is slowly becoming what it once was before pregnancy which is nice. Breakfast was two fried eggs with hot sauce, avocado, strawberries and blueberries. Lucky I took the …

Biweekly Update: 26 Weeks…2/3 of the Way!

Whoa…according to most sources I am technically in my third trimester starting next week which means Thing 3 is 2/3 of the way cooked! I will probably say this every update, but I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like Joe and I have been keeping pretty busy with friends, spending time with each other and …

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

I’m way past due for a recipe post! Before starting the Paleo diet, I almost always ordered quesadillas at Mexican restaurants. Now my go-to is usually fajitas, a salad or tacos with gluten-free corn tortillas on occasion. I found these awesome non-GMO, sprouted corn tortillas at our grocery store and devoured them. Unfortunately I haven’t seen them again! I look …

Biweekly Update: 24 Weeks

I honestly cannot believe another two weeks has flown by! Less than 4 months now until we get to meet Thing 3 and I’ll admit I definitely have my random mental freak out moments and am getting pretty anxious now that I’m almost 2/3 of the way through. I’m excited to have my registry pretty much completed and can’t wait …

Biweekly Update: 22 Weeks

It has been a great two weeks! We found out we are having a sweet baby boy! And we also went to South Padre Island, Texas for our official Babymoon vacation. It was a great time and I’m glad we were able to have our little weekend away. The beginning of this last week I was having some intense back …

Sweet Potato Fries

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Joe introduced me to what we always called “fries with hamburger” when we first started dating. Basically it was a bag of frozen waffle fries cooked until crispy topped with cooked ground beef and shredded cheese, then broiled. It was delicious! I’ve mixed it up over the years and used the all-natural frozen sweet potato fries and added a few …

Biweekly Update: 20 Weeks

Another two weeks closer to meeting Thing 3! How far along: 20 weeks Total weight gain: ~7 lbs. Maternity clothes: Mostly wearing maternity shirts or larger shirts and the same skirt/pants every week that still fit. I did get a good pair of maternity jean capris that I like. Also finally bought some new comfy/workout shorts in larger sizes since I was down …

Bacon Hashbrowns

The Best Bacon Hashbrowns and 20 Weeks!

Joe found this awesome recipe in Esquire magazine. I really didn’t change up the recipe much so they get all the credit for this one. And I guess Joe gets some credit for persuading me to make it! I believe you could sub sweet potatoes for this to make it more Paleo-friendly, however I haven’t personally tried it. My guess …

Biweekly Update: 18 Weeks

Have two weeks already gone by? I feel like some days time is flying by too fast and others it seems to crawl. I think the waiting to find out if we are having a boy or girl will start to wear on me! We have our “big” ultrasound on May 6 where we could find out the gender, however …
