Week 1 results and Lillian 2 months
Sunday, January 03, 2010      2 comments

So week one is over. I did a really good job on eating. I did work in a salad everyday. That is huge for me because that means that I'm getting in veggies and I made the base of the salad with spinach. I didn't workout at all but I just wanted t... Read more
Back to weight loss
Monday, December 28, 2009      4 comments

So today is the day that I will start to focus on losing weight again. I know that I have to take it slow and because I'm breastfeeding, I'm going to up my calories to 2000 a day. I will adjust that number if I need too. I have already grocery s... Read more
1 month and some change
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      6 comments

This is just a quick update while Lillian is napping. Things have gotten a lot better. She eats every 3hrs in the day and 4 at night. Though I think that Lillian will sleep through the night but the pedi said that I still have to wake her ... Read more
Breastfeeding Update
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      3 comments

So I saw the lactation consultant today. Apparently, I'm doing everything right. Lillian is just so small that she still needs to learn the process. She latches on great and sucking away like crazy. She just isn't getting in enough milk. Looks l... Read more

Who would have thought. Everything went picture perfect, the pregnancy, labor and delivery, I should have known that there would have been a glitch somewhere. But why breastfeeding. So I took Lillian to the Pedi today and she has regained s... Read more

So Monday morning I had my bloody show and about 2-3hrs later had my first contraction. I called my doula instead of my dr because I didn't want to go to the hospital too soon. So I basically kept my doula informed every 3-4 hrs on what was goin... Read more

So I went back to the Drs the day after my 37 week appointment. I didn't know what was going on with me and since this is my first pregnancy I thought that I better play it safe. So at my 37 week the dr did an internal at this point I'm pretty s... Read more
37 Week Appointment
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      3 comments

All good news. WooHoo. At this point I'm 1cm dialated and 50% effaced and the baby is sitting really low. As we all know, this really doesn't mean much. I was just happy that something was going on down there :-) So far the weight gain is 41lbs.... Read more
36 Week Appointment
Tuesday, October 13, 2009      2 comments

All went excellent today. BP 120/70 and I actually lost 1/2lb. Hey, I still might complete this whole pregnancy with only gaining 40lbs. (We won't mention that I only wanted to gain 25lbs.) Little Lillian is still head down and growing 24hours a... Read more

Not too much to report. Weight, of course, is up. So I'm at a grand total of 40lbs. 6lbs over from where I wanted to me but at this point, I feel like my body has a mind of it's own. I've done all that I could have done to keep it under control.... Read more

32 week appointment and visit to L&D
Thursday, September 17, 2009      4 comments

Who would have thought a simple doctor's visit would have turned into a 5 hour stay in L&D. I told the nurse that I noticed decreased fetal movement BUT that I DO feel the baby move every day. Just not at the intensity as I did before. Everythin... Read more
What today would have been
Monday, September 07, 2009      2 comments

So today would have been my father's 79th birthday. He passed away in 1996. So much time has passed and so many of life's moments he was not here to see both the happy and sad. He did live long enough to see me graduate from college. But he wasn... Read more
