This is my second week back at work, as I am a Grade 3 school teacher, so I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 week break! Early mornings are seeming to get harder as each one approaches, and I have to convince myself each and every morning to get out of bed and get ready. Except it

It’s so true when they tell you that pregnant women are like sponges sucking up every last drop of information! I have just finished my 14th week of pregnancy and am addicted to every mommy & pregnancy blog, medical article and magazine I can find that informs me of  something new and interesting with regards

The Heat!

We are currently going through a heat wave and it is brutal! I cannot seem to regulate my body temperature. I’m too hot and when I attempt to cool down by getting into the pool I get too cold. It is incredibly frustrating. At times I feel like the combination of my son and the

Getting big!

And I mean really big. Like having to pick up momentum to roll out of bed big. It’s an adjustment. Loving my bump and my little active monkey though. He’s recently taken a liking to a position right on top of my bladder. Feels like he’s using it as a trampoline. It’s quite a strange

Such a busy body!

This baby is so active. So much kicking and flipping. It’s quite impressive! I’ve been trying to get my husband to feel with no success but 2 days ago he felt a kick!! It was such a precious moment. It felt so good to share the pregnancy in this way. Until then, I felt like

Well hello belly!

I don’t even know how I’m going to cope with a bigger belly. Sitting down, bending over and putting on shoes has started to become a bit cumbersome. Sleeping comfortably is also a challenge. I currently have a little pillow fort on my side of the bed. I need to get one of those body/wrap

And the secret is out!

Feels so good to have broken the news! Babies just bring so much joy into the world. It’s funny but it still doesn’t feel real even after telling people. Hasn’t yet sunk in that we are having a baby. Don’t judge me, I’ll get there. I’m starting to show a little and it’s a bit

Almost There

11 weeks tomorrow and a step closer to the relief. No change since the last post but not going to dwell on that. I’m excited to see the end of the first trimester not only for the relief (please let there be relief) but also to allow myself to get excited. My husband and I
