Roni’s Pregnancy Week 23 – New Bras and The Boppy!

12 Comments 1796 views

Running late today! So busy but I have so much to tell you. See an old post below the video from my family blog.

Know any pregnant woman? The boppy really is awesome and it makes a great gift! Click here to see one similar to mine, Boppy Classic Nursing Pillow with Soft Slipcover

I Have the Prettiest Feet Ever! – June 28, 2005 (2 weeks after the birth of Little Guy)

For those of you who saw my feet you will completely understand this post. Well, I looked down today and notice the swelling was almost completely gone. I don’t have cankles anymore! I take this as a huge after pregnancy milestone.

I hit another milestone today. Bill returned to work and it was my first day home alone with Ryan. We had fun, although I’m not sure if he will remember any of it considering he sleeps about 18 hours a day. You would then think I wouldn’t be exhausted. Well you would be WRONG! When you have to wake to breast feed every two hours sleep just isn’t the same.

Ryan is doing really good at night and has already come close to sleeping 4 straight hours but, as I’m sure all the other parents out there know, sleep just isn’t the same anymore. I am constantly tired, with my eyes being very heavy. Of course there are times when I could be sleeping but I find myself just starring at him. I’m sure this will pass but in the mean time I’m going to enjoy it while he is this little.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    i LOVE my boppy and cannot live w/out it… nursing is so much easier, but i do recommend getting a cover for it… my little guy has a tendancy to pee while he’s nursing and if the diaper isn’t tight, it will leak… just a suggestion (target has both protectors and covers, though they may be cheaper on amazon)… :)

    and you totally don’t look pregnant! where is your belly?!?!? ;)

    Macarons? YUM! They are my absolute favorite, favorite, favorite cookies. (Can you tell I love them? ) I’ve only tried making them once and it was a super-simple recipe from my son’s Kid’s Cookbook. They didn’t rise (but still tasted so good.) Anyway, I plan to try again for the holidays. Also, the most recent Martha Stewart holiday cookie magazine has a 2 page spread with tons of variations.

    Here’s the links. The blog post is interesting b/c it says not to use powdered sugar w/ cornstarch. My kid’s recipe calls for superfine sugar (or caster sugar) which we made by simply putting sugar in the blender. This has worked well with other baked goods in the past.

    Well my youngest “baby” is 16 now and “Boppy’s” weren’t around then (that I knew of anyway) but what a great idea! I totally understood the lower back ache…You look GREAT! I always loved the big pregnancy “look” but not the swelling. HATED that. Enjoy!

    PS Oh and NURSING? Way to go!!! The best way…I know it’s not always possible for everyone but if people really knew how great it is for the mom AND baby, they’d reconsider bottle feeding. Well worth the effort, especially at the beginning when everything is new.

    You look and sound great. You are definitely looking pregnant now.

    I loved my Boppy with both of my kids. They also grew to be very attached to the pillows.

    You are so darn cute! I probably say that every week, but you are.

    I LOVED my Boppy when I was nursing. Never thought to use it to sit on. I have low back issues as well. The best thing to help out is a regular massage. I get one every 3 weeks and it helps tremendously w/ my low back issues!

    I’m so glad I still have my boppy because surprise…I’m pregnant again too. I’m about 8week, I go for an ultrasound to confirm due date tomorrow. This is seriously a surprise. Its my fourth pregnancy and I thought I was done. I was so done in fact that I just had a tummy tuck 7 months ago!!! I love your pregnancy updates especially now that I’m tagging along too.

    I know the pulling your talking about. Try doing this: Get on all fours and have your husband push has hard as he can with the base of his hand on the lowest part of your spine(Right above your arse). It will seriously help relieve some pressure.

    I love your videos. And you look awesome!!
