How far along are you? 24 weeks.

Due date: June 22nd

Sleep: I am so happy that my sleep keeps improving week to week. I am so much more rested and less moody, which we are all pretty happy about. Crabby pregnant Bekah isn't the best version of me.

Movement: Still moving like crazy. Calvin has been sick for the past week and has been super cuddly, which baby has been too impressed with. He is constantly kicking Calvin as he is cuddled against me. The struggle between these two has begun ;)

Food cravings: Grilled cheese sandwiches. I don't remember my cravings changing from week to week with Calvin but this pregnancy baby keeps changing his mind.

Favourite moments: I've been having conversations with Calvin about him becoming a big brother and us having another baby soon. He's still relatively clueless about the whole situation, but now and again he'll show some excitement and point to my belly saying "baby".

Happy or moody? Happy happy! However my hormones are a little everywhere. The littlest thing will set me off crying.

Looking forward to: Alex and I just booked our baby moon in Montreal and I can not wait to get away for a weekend!



How far along are you? 23 weeks.

Due date: June 22nd

Sleep: Much, much better this week (thank you Melatonin). I only wake up once a night and it's maybe for a couple minutes, so I am finally getting some good nights sleep!

Movement: This boy has been moving like crazy this week. Everyday, multiple times a day, he's just rolling around and I love it.

Food cravings: Egg salad sandwiches and Life cereal

Favourite moments: We found out this past Friday that we are having another boy!! When Alex and I were newly married, I remember mentioning that I wouldn't be surprised if I would be a mom of all boys. Now we still plan on one having one more baby after this one, so time will tell whether we will have a girl or not. I just can't wait for Calvin to have a brother. We would have been happy either way, but I am so excited about bringing another boy into this family!

Happy or moody? Now that my sleep has improved, I have definitely become much more pleasant to be around. So happy for sure right now.

Looking forward to: I'm starting to nest, which is one my favourite phases of pregnancy. I want to get everything little organized and am so motivated to do it. We moved into this house last February and for the most part everything is done the way I want, except for the "unseen" spaces. All of our upstairs closets, main closet and storage room need a major organization and I am pumped to just get it done. It also helps that it's happening right when I tend to do my spring cleaning, so I'm ready to de-clutter!!



Well hello again. Been a while since I posted last, and a lot has happened since then. The biggest (and most noticeable) change is that I am pregnant! So I am back for my weekly bumpdates. I absolutely love looking back at my weekly posts from Calvin's pregnancy, so I knew I wanted to document my growth and changes with every pregnancy.

How far along are you? 22 weeks.

Due date: June 22nd

Weight gain: About a year ago I got rid of our scale for my well being, but I did weigh myself a couple weeks ago and it was only about 7 pounds, so fingers crossed I continue to gain slowly this time around. But overall I am not keeping track.

Sleep: Really rough. Last night was the first decent night's sleep I've had in months (thank you Melatonin). For most of this pregnancy, I've been waking up multiple times a night for no reason. And what makes it worse is how it affects my mood. Since I have a toddler to entertain and take care of this time around, my lack of sleep has taken quite the toll on my patience. Thank goodness Calvin is quick to forgive, because I've let my temper get the best of me recently.

Movement: Oh yes. I feel the first flutter on January 13th, Alex felt the first kick on the 31st, and the past week movements have become more regular and intense.

Food cravings: Caesar salad. Can't get enough of the stuff. My appetite hasn't been nearly as intense with this pregnancy, and I've been a lot better at not over eating, or eating until I'm sick.

Favourite moments: Calvin is still a bit clueless to everything that is going on, but now and again he will kiss my belly. It melts my heart every time.

Happy or moody? Moody. Definitely moody. But a lot of that has to do with the lack of sleep I've had over the past couple of months.

Looking forward to: Finding out the sex on Friday. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride trying to find out. Long story short, we had an ultrasound 2 weeks ago, but the clinic's policy is to not verbally tell the fetal sex. But they also didn't add it to the report, meaning we had to book another ultrasound at a different clinic. This momma was ticked, but luckily we are going to a clinic that is much more accommodating this time around.


Personal Style

Grey Tunic: Gamiss, Pants: Joe Fresh

Over the past few months I've noticed a shift in my wardrobe. I started re-evulating my style at the beginning of this year. I found that when I looked at my wardrobe I had a lot of pieces, but very few that I actually loved. I'm a huge sucker for sales, and had so many pieces that I bought on impulse instead of genuinely liking. So I did a purge and tried to be more minimal. I wanted my closet to reflect me. I wanted pieces that I could feel comfortable and beautiful in. 

As a women I find it is so easy for us to get caught up in trends and trying to dress like someone else (I was guilty of this for years!), instead of focusing on styles that feel like ourselves. 

So how would I sum my style?

Simple, relaxed, classic, neutral, Bekah.
