Month: November 2015

Can you believe Thanksgiving is already over and December is tomorrow?! Holy Cow! Time is flying and standing still all at the same time… let me explain with a Baby Winchell update… Linking up today with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the weekly wrap! The Thursday before I was 34 weeks (my preggo weeks start on Sat) I was feeling a weird pain under my belly button and went to the doc to make sure everything was OK. Turns out the “pain” was completely normal and most likely due to the fact that I had abs before I got pregnant and they […]

Thanksgiving

For Two Fitness® Yoga Shorts!

Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day! I just wanted to drop a by quickly and share about a company I am thankful to be partnered with… I announced back in September that I was accepted to be a For Two Fitness® ambassador. It’s great to be apart of community of like minded people while being pregnant- that working out is A-Okay! They sent me their yoga shorts to review and I couldn’t wait to put them on. Now I admit that I haven’t done yoga in WAY too long, BUT with how comfortable they are… I’ve been wearing them around […]

I mentioned a while back how I’m keeping my protein up during pregnancy. I’ve cut back the carbs a bit- which is SO HARD being a pre-preggo crazy runner- and try to add in protein everywhere I can. We all know how much I love nut butters and I’ve always wanted to try the ones with added protein. I finally got my hands on some samples sent from Buff Bake and am IMPRESSED! I tried the Snickerdoodle almond spread first, as I’ve read good things about it. It was good, but out of the three, it came in third. Next […]

Buff Bake Samples

I was going through my phone the other day and came across some pictures I’ve been meaning to share… so pretty much this is a photo dump. Just go with it and enjoy Man, I really miss running here… every time I drive under I think about how great it will be pushing Baby W up and down the “bridge.” Since when did Target start passing out free popcorn to eat while shopping?! They must have known I was coming 😉 Swollen feet= compression socks. Add in some Nuun to make sure I’m fully hydrated and I’m good to go! I […]

Our trip to Australia started in Sydney. You can read about that HERE. Cairns was a beautiful city. It’s pretty touristy though, as many people stay there because its close to the Great Barrier Reef… which is why we went there 😉 Our first day there, we walked around and took in the small city, or should I say town. On the second day we took a snorkeling tour of the Great Barrier Reef. Sounds awesome right?!?! Unless you’re the pregnant girl who didn’t know she’d get horrible sea sickness and throw up the entire 5.5 hour trip. I barely […]

Snorkeling

Hey Hey! I feel like I start every post with an apology for not posting in a while… my bad. Things really aren’t THAT busy, but we’ve had a lot of random stuff to do that seems to take up so much time! Let’s get to it… Last week I started getting this pain right under my belly button that went down a few inches. It wasn’t a sharp pain, but felt more like a bruise if you even touched it, let alone pressed on it. On top of that it was hurting to pee. Not like a UTI kind […]

Oreo Cake  Ice Cream

So here we are, at the end of week 33. I think it’s about time for a recap on the past few weeks. Check out my previous preggo recaps:  weeks 1-7, weeks 8-12, weeks 13-16, weeks 17-20, weeks 21-24, and weeks 25-28. Weeks 29-30 were spent in Australia, which, no surprise here, I still owe you a recap on the Cairns and Melbourne parts of our trip. Weight Gain= I gained 17 lbs as of 28 weeks. Wk 29- 0, Wk 30- 1, Wk 31- 1, Wk 32- 1, Wk 33- 2. Total by 28 weeks: 22 lbs. Right on target for the 1lb a […]
