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 …

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.

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 …

BBQ Pork Pizza with Spaghetti Squash Crust and Second Trimester Updates

Things have been going much, much better in the symptom, food and exercise department compared to how I felt throughout the first trimester. I’ve had a much healthier appetite and have been able to cook a lot more than I was in the beginning. I still have my indulgences but sticking to the Paleo or just a whole foods diet …

First Trimester Experiences: Food and Exercise

Food was an interesting category for me during the first three months of pregnancy. I had been eating extremely healthy prior to conception and during the first few weeks. As I said, around six weeks I got hit with wonderful pregnancy nausea. I looked at my salad for lunch one day and started gagging. I just has my first full salad since …

First Trimester Experiences: Symptoms

The first trimester has brought many ups and downs for us (mostly me). At about 5 ½ weeks pregnant I was still having some significant cramping and also some light spotting. My doctor ordered an immediate ultrasound to eliminate the possibilities of a tubal pregnancy or the embryo attaching anywhere else except the uterus. The results were fine and everything …
