Third Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison Part 4

Third Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison…My third baby is here, it’s a girl!  What a whirlwind it has been, she is already four weeks old and I am just now getting to the announcement on Instagram and this labour comparison post.  Life as a Mom of 3 under 4 is crazy, let me tell you.  Crazy, but delicious and wonderful.  I have not stopped holding and snuggling and kissing her this entire time…

Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan, Part 2

Postpartum Weight Loss Diet and Exercise Plan Part 2…My third baby is about to be born (anytime now!), and I’m already preparing to get my postpartum weight loss underway.  Am I totally crazy?  Perhaps, but I actually find the weight loss process to be really fun, challenging and inspiring.  As a new Mom, it’s important to do something for yourself, and I think getting fit and healthy and exercising and shedding the no-longer-necessary pregnancy weight is a great thing to do for yourself…

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison Part 3

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison…I am now well into my third trimester with my third baby, and it’s going really well!  I’ve passed all the tests (no gestational diabetes, no strep B, no blood pressure problems), my belly is growing right on track, and my energy levels are pretty good.  I’m still super tired, but that’s the only complaint I have and it could very well be due to the fact that I don’t really start my day until my other two babies are asleep.  I’m quite the night owl…

Addams Family Nursery

Addams Family Nursery…The Addams Family is an unusual theme for a baby nursery, but it’s perfect for our new little one! We are big lovers of Halloween, and I’m a particular fan of the Addams Family. I think I was Morticia for at least 3 Halloween’s in a row as a child, she’s my #momgoals and her and Gomez are my #couplegoals–they are so in love and romantic all the time…

Winter Mountain Lake Maternity Photo Shoot

Winter Mountain Lake Maternity Photo Shoot…We just got back from our Babymoon in the Rocky Mountains. We stayed at the luxurious Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, it was a fairy tale! We started our weekend getaway at the Comic Expo in Calgary, Alberta, saw the new Avengers movie in a super fancy theatre with reclining leather seats, then went to Lake Louise for maternity photos and massages. It was such a fun weekend…

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison Part 2

Third Pregnancy Bump Comparison…Second trimester with my third baby has proven to be more tiring than the other babies, but at least less tiring than the first trimester!  At 19 weeks I was even able to start exercising again, though running and even walking uphill on the treadmill were out due to some muscle cramping (felt like a side stitch but in the front).  I have been doing Pilates every day and absolutely love it, I think I am a Pilates addict!  I’m excited to be postpartum so that I can do all the floor moves laying on the back or tummy, it will be a fun change…

Simple Crochet Baby Blanket

Simple Crochet Baby Blanket……Pregnancy nesting is a real thing.  Like, for REAL!  I now have single digit weeks to go before Baby #3 arrives, and the amount of stuff I am trying to get done in preparation is a bit insane.  It’s not even the typical scrubbing of baseboards and building furniture (that stuff is already done), it’s craft projects like crocheting blankets and newborn hats and making art for the nursery…in other words, the important stuff…
