Baby on the Run: Week 33

Baby on the Run: Week 33

Big week! Huge! As I am writing this, I am tired. Like just-finished-a-Ragnar-Relay tired. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s a combination of being 34 weeks pregnant, being in the middle of a Crohn’s disease flare, not having a full night’s sleep in several weeks, and generally going nonstop for a while now. […]

Baby on the Run: Week 32

Eight months! At one point last week, I Googled “How many months is 32 weeks pregnant?” because math is hard and numbers are weird, and the internet said “eight months.” That is crazy! I’m eight months pregnant?! Never in my life has time flown quite so quickly. Meanwhile, here are just a few reasons I […]

Baby on the Run: Week 31

Baby on the Run: Week 31

I can’t remember much from Week 31. Life is all a bit of a blur right now. So much to do, so little time! Best TV show ever. But a few baby-specific things that dominated my week… “Nesting!” That’s how I spent most of the week. I never really understood this concept, but it hit […]

Baby on the Run: Week 30

Baby on the Run: Week 30

Oh, Week 30. What happened, Week 30? Week 30 was a week. I was exhausted, emotional, overwhelmed — I was, to be honest, a complete mess. But amidst my madness, there were high points! I had an appointment with the midwife on Friday, and the craziest thing about the appointment, in my mind, is that it […]

My Pregnancy Favorites (So Far)

Pregnancy Favorites

The day I found out I was pregnant — February 15, 2018, to be exact — was as exciting and life-changing as it was overwhelming. Yes, my life was about to change in a massive way, but six months later, it’s still as exciting as it is overwhelming. I’m fortunate to have a really wonderful […]

Baby on the Run: Week 29

Baby on the Run: Week 29

Last week — my final week in my twenties! of pregnancy, that is — was exhausting. We’re still getting settled from the move (and will totally get furniture eventually…), plus I spent two long days at the BlogHer Creators Summit conference in the city and went to a wedding on Saturday. I’m feeling equal parts […]

Baby on the Run: Week 28

So much baby stuff this week! In addition to settling into our new apartment, there were a whole bunch of baby-related activities on the agenda. On Wednesday night, Brian and I went to a childbirth education class at our midwife’s office, led by our doula and another doula. It was like a really weird little […]

Baby on the Run: Week 27

Baby on the Run: Week 27

The last week of the second trimester! I barely know what day it is right now. Life has been so crazy lately, and we moved this week, so I don’t really know. But here’s how the last week of the second trimester shaped up. BABY IS THE SIZE OF… a head of cauliflower. I love […]

Baby on the Run: Week 26

Baby on the Run: Week 26

Before I was pregnant, I remember thinking it was crazy or weird that women always referenced their pregnancy progress in weeks. How did they always know exactly what week they were in? Wasn’t it hard to keep track? And why go in weeks when talking about months is so much easier? But, of course, now […]

Baby on the Run: Week 25

Baby on the Run: Week 25

Week 25 was amazing for two big reasons: the giraffe and the movement. First, the giraffe. The long story is here. And when that little rocking giraffe arrived at our apartment in Brian’s arms, I thought I was going to melt into a puddle of joy. No idea how I will handle the emotions of […]
