I am 34 weeks pregnant as of yesterday! Crazy that in just a little bit over a month our little whip will be here. Nothing has changed much in the last few weeks as far as symptoms go. I’m maybe a little hungrier and a little bit more tired. I have some back pain, but usually running, foam rolling, or just moving around has helped with that. I’m doing what I can to prevent swelling, so tons of water and exercise with some rest too. Continue reading
As I am now 34 weeks pregnant, it’s insane to look back to the day I found out our family was about to grow. I remember going to my parents to do some laundry (our apartment doesn’t have a washer/dryer) and just feeling “off.” I had worked out that morning and thought I had just taken too much pre-workout, leaving me shaky and with an upset stomach. I was just nauseous. Also, since we had gotten home from our honeymoon, I hadn’t felt right in the gym. Just sluggish workouts and working on getting back to my regular diet. Continue reading
Last week, Sam decided it was time for him to try going gluten free OR dairy free, because both at once was just way too hard… Continue reading
Did this little number while my lunch cooked in the oven. Took about 35 minutes total at that “pregnancy pace.” I’ve been doing mostly body weight these last few weeks of pregnancy because it’s way easier to motivate myself to move the coffee table and workout than get my coat, shoes, keys, and drive to the gym (which is literally a two minute drive…).
Anyways, here ya go!
A few months ago, Sam and I decided we needed to go on one last trip before Elliot came, just the two of us. This is apparently a thing in the pregnancy community, known as a “baby moon.” Sam and I didn’t get a lot of time to travel together before becoming parents, so the opportunity was so exciting to me. We decided to keep it semi-local and head to Kansas City, just 3-4 hours from our home in St. Charles. Continue reading
Waking up this morning, my first thought as we begin a new month, was that I am now officially able to say “I am due next month.” Next month… I will be a mom. I mean, I’m technically a mom now. But at some point NEXT MONTH, I will be looking into the face of my brand new baby boy. Wow. Continue reading

Wednesdays are long. Just a long day, usually packed from the moment I wake up at 7am until 10pm. I wake, I run, get ready and go to work, date my husband, and then we go to church. This one was different. I had no clue what the Lord had in store, but I’m thankful for what my morning looked life. Continue reading
