17 weeks

October 2, 2015


How I’m Feeling: Well I’d like to say that my energy is coming back, which I think it is, but this week we’re tackling potty training and it’s been good, but hard and exhausting. Logan is also going through a sleep regression or something. He’s not going to bed til 9:30 [even though we start at 7:30 with our process] and he’s waking up at 6 each morning. I just don’t get it, but it’s making all of us super tired, cranky, and irritable. I also can’t even believe that we’re almost to the half way mark. It just seems so unreal. My nesting phase has shown up waaaaaay early and is making me literally tear apart our house in an effort to clean everything and organize it all. Yesterday I spent two hours decluttering the ridiculous amounts of toys that are taking over my house. Speaking of decluttering — anyone read The Art of Tidying Up? Helpful? I fell like I need to read it right now, with a big ole milkshake. I’m also feeling a little half and half with my body changing. Part of me is just loving every moment of being pregnant and not thinking about the 2nd cookie I just enhaled. The other part of me feels like I need to start watching things a little better and not go crazy with the pregnancy indulgences. Watching your body change is a weird thing, exciting but weird, and can make you think crazy thoughts.

How I’m Changing: The belly — oh the belly — it seems huge for 17 weeks! In looking back at my pregnancy with Logan and then with other people I know at my stage and it’s like DANG, I’m huge. And I really think this week I’m starting to feel some kicks. I wasn’t sure at first, but they’re becoming more consistent and “poppy”. Eeeekkkk. Super thirsty now too, especially right before bed. So, of course I drink a huge glass of water and then am up 10 times at night going pee.  Nausea has started creeping it’s way back in to mu life too, right around 4pm, and I hate it. My sinuses are also bugging the heck out of me. Sniffle here, sniffle there. I can’t breathe but at the same time my nose is running. Thinking it’s time to bust out the humidifier.


What I’m Eating/What I’m Not: Ok, so I have no idea where this one came from but, canned beets are my thing right now. I got home from the store yesterday and almost at half the can for lunch. Quesadillas!! Ketchup and BBQ sauce too are finding there way on to everything. Salads, hallelujah for salads. Oatmeal, protein pancakes, and yogurt are also showing back up and I’m so happy because I missed them. Not in to super sweet things still. But other than that not having any serious aversions.

Sleep: Heavenly
Most Exciting Moment: Kicks
Baby is the Size of a: Turnip

How I’m Feeling: This week I’m feeling like an overrun mama. One of the biggest things I’m noticing this week is my serious lack of staying calm. Obviously the hormones are raging right now. But I’m freaking out, like ballistically, over the tiniest things. Lucas was swatting a fly the other day with a fly […]

Slow Cooker [Healthy] Cashew Chicken

September 22, 2015

Sometimes my life gets waaaay too busy. With a toddler on the loose now, taking fancy pictures of my recipes, focusing on spending more time in the kitchen, and preparing new meals kind of falls by the wayside.
