Pregnancy Yoga Newbie

I’m a newbie on so many levels! As a blogger, as a pregnant person, and now as a pregnancy yoga attendee. I’ve never done pregnancy yoga before (who am I kidding? I’ve never done yoga before full stop!) but I wanted to join a local class so that I could…

Pregnancy Diary Week 18

This week of pregnancy has been good. My headaches have pretty much gone away (typically, as I had an appointment with the doctor about them) and I’ve had more energy. It’s been back to school though and I worked three consecutive days after three weeks off, which resulted in a…
