{baby d}: week twenty five

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


Another appearance by Harley and his ball :) Thanks Erica for letting me borrow this dress! 

Feeling: still have groin/round ligament pain which comes and goes. The worst is rolling over in bed or getting off the couch from sitting for a while. Otherwise, felt a bit tired last week, but I think that comes with growing a baby!

Workouts: Three runs (12kms total), lots of walks with Harley and a prental yoga class

  • lots of movement still! I still can't get over how weird it is to see my belly roll and move with her movements
  • I talked about this on Friday, but still trying to decide if I want to get maternity pictures done or just newborn ones or both
  • some days it blows my mind that I am going to be a mom/ we are going to be parents. I know there is a baby growing in my belly, but it's crazy to me some days

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Tuesday everyone! This weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada, so we had a long weekend. Loved every minute of it! 

{friday} Mr.D had gone biking after work, so I took Harley for a run and then we hung out at home.

{saturday} Mr.D was riding his motorcycle to Edmonton, so he left a bit before me to try and beat the rain. Harley and I headed out shortly after that to make the long boring driving to Edmonton. We got there in the early afternoon, and Mr.D and my FIL were working on the bikes, so I took Harley for a walk in the river valley. Later that night, we met up with one of Mr.D's friends for dinner and then stopped by another friend's house to say hi.

{sunday} in the morning, Mr.D and his dad had gone for long motorcyle ride, so I waited for them to get back before we took Harley for another walk in the river valley. It was a super windy, but sunny fall day. Later that afternoon, we headed over to my BIL & SIL's house for Thanksgiving dinner. They put on a fabulous meal and I think I am still full :)

{monday} Mr.D and Harley let me have a sleep in, which was fabulous. Harley and I headed out later that morning to head home. An uneventful drive home followed by a nap for both of us when we got home :)

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Five on Friday

{one} Happy Friday everyone! This started out super busy at work and then me not wanting to be there at all. Ever have one of those weeks? So glad it's Friday!

{two} Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! We are heading to spend time with Mr.D's family and of course stuff ourselves silly. So excited for stuffing. 

{three} the other night, we made this recipe for chicken avocado parm that Lindsey had on her blog. We have never actually made chicken parm and this recipe was a keeper! So good. I looked forward to lunch the next day :)

{four} I have been trying to debate if I want to get maternity pictures done. For the mama's out there, did you get them done? If you didn't, do you regret it now? I know that I want newborn pictures for sure, but just not sure I want to spend the money on both. Call me cheap :)

{five} have a great weekend everyone!

{baby d}: week twenty four

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

My outfit this week definitely didn't show off my belly very well. Oh well, it's all about what fits these days.

Feeling: overall, still no major complaints. I got home from San Fran on Monday and I was pretty tired for the rest of the week though. Those hills and being busy took it out of me!

Workouts: prenatal yoga class, two runs, two weight workouts, swimming and walks with Harley. A pretty good week of workouts!

Haha this is what happens when Harley comes outside while Mr.D takes my weekly pictures
  • had my 24 week check up at the maternity clinic. Baby girl's heart rate was in 140 this time. Belly was measuring right on track even though people have told me that I am still tiny. I did get a bit of a talk about my weight gain this time, but I blame it on all of the delicious food in San Fran ;) Definitely not the easiest thing to hear even when you are pregnant and supposed to be gaining weight.
  • she was a moving and shaking this week! Mr.D was finally able to feel a kick/punch/etc, which was really neat for him. I can see some of the movements from the outside, which is crazy.
  • One of Mr.D's coworkers made us this adorable blanket:

Scenes from the weekend

I was a bad blogger this weekend and took zero pictures! So let's pretend this post is full of wonderful and pretty pictures :)

{friday} After work, I took Harley for a short walk and then Mr.D and I headed out to grab some sushi for dinner. Pretty sure I was in bed before 10pm :)

{saturday} in the morning, Mr.D had gone biking with a friend so I took Harley for a run. Well, it's more run and walking these days, but still happy to be able to get out there. In the afternoon, we headed to Alison and Justin's to help celebrate Miss Delainey's first birthday. Alison put together a wonderful ice cream party! After the birthday party, we stopped at Canadian Tire to finally buy a floor lamp for our living room. Only four years of living here that we finally bought one ;)

{sunday} Mr.D went biking with Justin in the morning, so I headed to the Y to swim some laps. After swimming, I took Harley for a long walk as it was a beyond gorgeous day here. The rest of the day was spent napping, getting groceries and making dinner. 

A quiet, but perfect weekend :)

Tell me: what were you up to for the weekend?
