{baby D} week fourteen

Just a friendly reminder that I'm posting my weekly recaps a week behind


I'm not sure if I will do the typical weekly recap, but right now I don't feel like doing it. So, I'll just talk a bit about the week before.
  • TIRED! I don't know if it was a growth spurt or that I finally felt like working out again, but man, I was dead tired by the end of the week. I napped on Friday night, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Not that I'm complaining at all though ;)
  • Workouts- many walks with Harley, one at home CrossFit workout, one run, one swim and actually went to a CrossFit class. 
  • a few headaches, but not as bad as earlier
  • Pink Blush Maternity was having a great sale on, so I ordered two tank tops, a long sleeved shirt and a maxi dress for a great price
  • speaking of clothing, it's hard to find stuff for my boobs! They've grown like crazy and I swear I feel like I have melons strapped to my chest.
  • trying to eat better as I gained a couple too many lbs in the first 12 weeks. Not working out and eating lots of carbs will do that to you :)

Looking forward

{Today} I'm looking forward to having my after dinner nap and then possibly taking Harley for a run later on. It's HOT here this week, so no walk or run right after work for us.

{This week} I'm looking forward to meeting up with Becky and Kaella (plus their little guys) on Saturday at the zoo. I've actually never been to the Calgary Zoo...strange hey? I'm also looking forward to the prenatal massage that Mr.D booked for me on Sunday. My lower back and hips have been killing me lately, so I can't wait!

{This month} Well, since July is almost over, I'll talk about August. I'm looking forward to my two weeks of holidays which we have nothing planned so far. I'm also looking forward to our nieces 2nd birthday party and our next ultrasound on the 26th!

{This year} I'm looking forward to going to San Fran with the girls in September, going home to Ontario in October and of course getting closer to meeting our baby! 

Tell me: what are you looking forward to?

Scenes from the weekend

{friday} the weather was crappy on Friday and when I got home, Mr.D was having a nap. I made myself some dinner and then took a two hour nap. We are party animals over here ;)

{saturday} Mr.D was up super early to go to Fernie biking with Justin, so it was just Harley and I for the day. Someone insisted on getting up at 7:30am, so I vacuumed and tidied up. I look over and Harley was sleeping, so I decided I better take a nap too! After our nap, I took Harley for a long walk and then headed to CrossIron Mills. The rest of the day was spent just hanging out and watching tv.


{sunday} when I got up, Mr.D had gone for a motor bike ride, so I headed to CrossFit with Erica. I hadn't been there in forever, so it was fun to go with Erica one last time before her baby arrives :) After CrossFit, I took Harley for another long walk and then took another nap. Napping should have been the theme of my weekend ;) I made these cookies and dang, they are good. I also picked up the Belly Laughs book yesterday at the mall...has anyone read it? It's a quick but hilarious read!

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Five on Friday



{one} happy Friday everyone! This week felt like it just dragged by....maybe it's because I am counting down until my holidays in August.

{two} I went to the YMCA last night to swim laps (decided to start since it's great exercise and good for baby), but oh man. I forgot how badly people have no idea how to swim laps properly. There was one guy who went up the left side then veered to the middle and all over the place. Or there was the guy who stopped 3/4 of the way through the lap with me following and just starting walking. Fun times.

{three} Mr.D had three friends here for the past two days, and oh boy, that's a lot of testosterone in our house. Please let our baby be a girl ;)

{four} it's a very gloomy day out this morning and I wish I was still at home in bed. Where is the magical lamp to rub so I could make a wish to go home?

{five} have a great weekend everyone!

{baby d}: weeks four to thirteen


  • had blood work done on May 7th and the doctor's office called the next day to ask me to come in
  • went into the office on May 13 and my doctor said there was a low amount of HCG in my blood (15 mIU/ml). He said that I could either be pregnant or could miscarry. He sent me for another blood test, which I did right after I left the office. Spend the whole day worrying and wondering if I am actually pregnant. Called Brian at work to let him know what was going on. I was also due to get my period this day, but it obviously never showed up!
  • my doctor called me on my way home from work and said "congratulations, you are pregnant!" My HCG levels went up to 400, which indicated that I am in fact pregnant (anywhere from 4-5 weeks). Made an appointment in the next few weeks to go back in to see him.
  • Brian had gone for a bike ride, so I had to wait until he got home. I had set up a onesie and the pregnancy test on the bed thinking he'd go upstairs to change. He asked me if my doctor called, so I had to lie and say no, not yet. He finally went upstairs and saw the onesie and test and we both were in a little bit of shock. He also came home with a Mcflurry because he had a feeling I was pregnant...love him! :)
  • I really didn't think I was pregnant, but two weekends before, I had fallen asleep at 9pm on the Friday night and then slept in late the next day and napped too. I also had the sorest boobs ever! I wasn't sure if those were signs or just PMS symptoms.
  • Feeling: tired, headaches, excited
  • a few headaches this week
  • some cramping 
  • starting to get tired! Had a nap after work on Tuesday 
  • hunger started to kick in at the end of the week. Couldn't stay full!
