Yesterday I hit 18 weeks. For the first time 2 days ago, I felt the fluttering. With the first 2, it wasn’t until 22 weeks so it’s early for me! It’s so weird and I’m still in major denial that this is happening and have major anxiety that I will be able to handle 3 children and give them each their time.  I have a strong feeling that it is a boy, but last night I had a dream that a girl was born! We will be surprised – that is my favorite thing! Other than emotionally, physically I have been feeling fine. Some days depending on the position of the baby, I cramp up when I’m running, but otherwise everything is good and I can’t complain one bit. I’ve been able to eat pretty well and have not had too many aversions or major cravings so I’m lucky!  I was MAJORLY sore yesterday from the TRX class on Tuesday. I am still sore – everywhere. Every muscle in my body. Probably worse than the marathon soreness? I’m considering doing it once a week, it was a great workout!!

17 weeks:

I’m so excited to for the holiday season, I love it!! Share your favorite holiday recipe link – I love trying new recipes. Here are a couple that I want to try but I’m definitely looking for already modified tasty somewhat healthy recipes.

gingerbread cookies (vegan)

Italian Christmas cookies

Mickey Peppermint Cookies

Here is a nice start to the day with a Sugar cookie smoothie!
 Add spinach!  It’s not as pretty but you can’t taste it 🙂



  1. Natalie,
    I didn’t know you were expecting again. Oh, I’m so excited for you. You can totally handle three. At least I hope you can, b/c we want more kids, and that’s what I keep telling myself. 😉

    Merry Christmas!
