And Baby Makes 5

Well, we finally met our little princess this week. Our little girl arrived via c-section on Tuesday and has been rocking our world ever since!

We’ll be back to our regular programming around here soon but for now, we are enjoying some down time together as a family of 5.

We’re also needing to get some girl clothes. Stat!

Love!!

What to Pack in your Hospital Bag when Having a Baby

I find it slightly humourous, the amount of information you can find about what to pack for the hospital when you have a baby. In my 2 previous visits, I have seen everything from women who packed nothing because baby made a surprise early appearance to women who come with a full-sized suitcase jam-packed withContinue Reading

Time to Bid Adieu to this Pregnancy

The time is drawing near, the end is in site and this big ol’ belly of mine needs to evict its prisoner sooner, rather than later. I’ve lamented about restless leg syndrome, I’ve slept fewer hours over the past 4 months of being pregnant than I ever imagined possible and have busted the seems outContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Feeling the Panic

Here we are at Monday again. Thankfully, it’s a long weekend Monday so hubby is home. Saturday night, I couldn’t fall asleep until 6am (so I guess technically Sunday morning) and my boys are up not long after that. Oy!! This week, I’m in terrified mode. My kids are done daycare and are with meContinue Reading

37 weeks Pregnant and Exhausted

Just a quick pop-in to say…still here! I’m at the stage now where any amount of silence/non-communication results in the “maybe she’s having the baby” and I can assure by looking down at my non-existent feet, that is not the case. Baby 3.0 is still cooking away, though I will happily admit that I’m readyContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The Tuesday Edition with Pregnancy Update

Yesterday’s post wasn’t a Mayhem Monday as is the usual custom around here. A couple of reasons for that: 1. I was eager to share my For Two Fitness® review and get that promo code out there as soon as I could and 2. Knowing that my doctor’s appointment was scheduled for Monday morning, IContinue Reading

Following along this blog, you’ve seen that I’ve done my best to stay active and have enjoyed good success with running up to and including my 35 weeks of pregnancy. With restless leg syndrome kickingContinue Reading

So…about that Bed Rest thing…

This has been an interesting week to say the least. I’ve been struggling. A lot. In the past 5 days, 3 of them have been completely without sleep at night. My legs have been getting worse and as tired as I am and as worn out as I am, I just haven’t been able toContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: The Bad, The Ugly and some Great

I am so done, done, done, DONE being pregnant. D-O-N-E. Finished. Finito. La Fin. Gah!!! Ok, so I didn’t have the greatest week. Two days last week, I got zero (and I mean…zero) sleep. My legs were so bad that I had to constantly move around. It was awful and after several meltdowns, I declaredContinue Reading

My Initial Plan for After Baby is Born

Now that baby arrival is seemingly just around the corner, I have been finding myself thinking about what I’m going to do after baby comes. What kind of goals will I have? What’s reasonable given how intense our schedule is going to be for a few months? Fit Boy will start preschool right before theContinue Reading
