38 Weeks Pregnant

Home stretch over here! I can’t believe it really, this baby’s arrival is so soon! (could be a couple weeks but still so soon!) This week was a pretty good week overall. It really made a difference to be off work. Even though I had a really busy week with appointments and things to do… Continue reading 38 Weeks Pregnant

17 Weeks Pregnant

I’ve got a pomegranate in there! My app says Baby is about 13cm and 167 grams. She’s getting stronger bones and putting on a little fat in there too. Our umbilical cord is apparently really growing thicker and stronger now too. Pretty amazing. It’s all such a miracle! I’m beginning to love my baby bump. One… Continue reading 17 Weeks Pregnant

14 Weeks Pregnant

It seems like I just wrote the 13 week update which is actually a bit of a good feeling because I think those first 12 weeks felt like they were standing still. They went by so slow! Each week that goes by I feel a little more secure in thinking this babe is safe, happy and… Continue reading 14 Weeks Pregnant

Meal Prep August 1st 2016

I like to meal prep in the late afternoon on Sundays (or holiday Mondays 🙂 ) so that I make dinner at the same time. This saves me from having to cook and clean the kitchen more than necessary. The cleaning part is not my favourite and my hubby would say not my forte either… Continue reading Meal Prep August 1st 2016

Meal Prep April 24th 2016

This past week was emotional and pet centric. If you follow my facebook and IG you’ll know I had to put my sweet 18 year old kitty, Sasha, down. She had been declining for the past 6 months but Monday she took a turn and was in bad shape. The vet encouraged me to choose… Continue reading Meal Prep April 24th 2016

Meal Prep January 24th 2016

I bought a whack of sweet potatoes and yams this weekend. I couldn’t resist the beautiful variety of kinds at Whole Foods so I stocked up. Garnet, Jewel, White and Japanese  (also like Caribbean sweet potato) with the white flesh and red/purple skin. They are a little more starchy and firm than the orange sweet… Continue reading Meal Prep January 24th 2016

Tracking Your Cycle & Making Babies

Hello friends! I’d thought I’d give you a bit of an update on the Garcia Jr. status or at least the process I’m following to conceive Garcia Jr. I realize this is a private topic and in some cases sensitive topic and maybe one that most people wouldn’t write about and post for the world… Continue reading Tracking Your Cycle & Making Babies

Parasite Story – Part 4

Well I figured it was about time for another update on where I’m at with this parasite recovery. If you’ve been following my story you’ll know that it’s been a year since the diagnosis and that it took 10+ months to get those answers. That means I’ve been feeling pretty rough for almost 2 years. I’m… Continue reading Parasite Story – Part 4
