Pure Raw Juice: Acai Bowls & Pregnancy Cravings

Pure Raw Juice: Acai Bowls & Pregnancy Cravings
Pregnancy cravings, what a crazy experience. Am I right? I mean, not everything is stereotype, like pickles and ice cream or other weird combos like pulled pork on ice cream, or sardines + blueberries + crackers. No, I didn’t crave those things, but people do. I saw it on The Internet. It’s true. For me,...

Pregnancy Journal: 20 weeks pregnant with baby #2
How is it even possible that I’m in the middle of my 5th month of pregnancy already??? That’s right folks. I’ve made it to 20 weeks. I’m at that half way point, the hump, the middle, the “almost there, but not quite at all,” place, and it feels like it happened really fast. But in...

Pregnancy Journal: 17 weeks pregnant with Baby #2
I cant believe Baby and I are already at 17 weeks! That’s almost HALF WAY! Actually, while I’m writing this, I’m ALMOST 18 weeks, and this post may not even go up until then… Whoops. It’s funny since sometimes I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever, and I clearly haven’t been. It just seems that some...
