pregnancy

Breastfeeding is hard, especially as a new mother. Society makes breastfeeding out to be beautiful and natural, but that is not always the case!

While this is absolutely a food blog and not a baby and breastfeeding blog, I feel like I would be doing a huge disservice to women everywhere if I did not write this post.  I hope to use this platform to reach as many people as possible about this topic because I feel it is [...]

Our Sweet Baby Boy's Birth Story

This is a continuation of our sweet baby boy's birth story.  Start here if you missed Part 1. The period between 7:00 p.m. and midnight is when I truly began to experience what Pitocin-induced contractions are like.  They come fast, hard, and with little breaks in between.  At one point I was timing them as [...]

Our Sweet Baby Boy's Birth Story

This is the story of our sweet baby BOY's birth.  I have split it into two parts for the sake of not bombarding you with a lengthy post.  Jeremy and I have decided together to not share pictures with his face or share his name to protect his privacy.  From here on out, I'll be [...]

40 Week Pregnancy Update

All of my previous pregnancy update posts covered four-week time spans.  But now that things are getting down to the wire (hello, 40 weeks), I figured I had better pop back in for one last update. I'm not going to lie, I sort of hoped I wouldn't get to this post.  But here we are [...]

38 Week Pregnancy Update as we near the end of the third trimester!

As I sat down to write this update post, I got to thinking that this could legitimately be the last update post I write.  Crazy, right?  The 38 week mark hit last Thursday, so I am actually 38 weeks and four days today. It is so weird to think that baby could come TODAY, or [...]

These weeks of pregnancy are just a flyin' by!  How in the world we are already to the end of the third trimester sure beats me.  But I'll take it! My food aversions and cravings have changed quite a bit over the past 37ish weeks.  And as a result, my days of eats have been [...]

Our Gender Neutral Nursery Tour | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Our Gender Neutral Nursery Tour Happy Monday to you!  I am three days away from 37 weeks, or "early full term."  And now that it is really feeling like crunch time, I am so relieved that baby's nursery is all put together... or at least enough to share all of the deets with you! Since [...]

34 week pregnancy update

We are getting so close and yet it still feels like it is so far away!  I have to say that the planner in me does not love not knowing when baby will arrive.  But I guess that just adds to the fun of pregnancy <-- I'm being slightly facetious here.  Regardless, the countdown is on! This [...]

The Baby Shower | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Today officially marks 32 weeks into this pregnancy, and I feel like time is moving by slowly and quickly all at the same time.  We still have quite a few house projects to accomplish, and I need to finish decorating the nursery.  So I'm thinking we need at least another month before I will feel really [...]

30 Week Pregnancy Update | cleaneatingveggiegirl.com

Hello, 30 weeks!  We have reached the 30's and the third trimester, which makes everything feel even more real.  I have to say that it is weird to think about when baby will come.  I know realistically that a lot of people go past their due date, but I have seen so many first-time mothers lately who have [...]
