I’m super excited that it’s growing so well.  Now just a few more years and we might have some fruit…and I won’t have to spend so much on avocados every week.  Woo Hoo!

JUST KIDDING!

This is more like it:

having another baby

Yup, that’s right; Crunchy Hot Mama is having another baby!  According to BabyCenter, at 16 weeks, baby is the size of an avocado so I thought it fitting to put that in the title.

I’ve had several random strangers friends ask when? when? when? we were having another baby and I told them, I’m just not sure.  Emma definitely wasn’t planned (conceiving just one month after we got married), so it was hard to plan a second.  I’ve expressed my apprehension about another child, but have had several pleas to not let her be an only child.  I knew we would at some point, since I love having a sister, but kind of let it happen as it may.

I’m not sure what took me so long to blog about it, but now the word is out and it’s time to start rethinking what I’d do differently this time.  You’ve seen me post pictures of going to the chiropractor- which is new for both Emma and me.  I also found a Midwife through a local group on Facebook, so that’s definitely new, too.  I promise to let you know what I did before, what I will do this time, and my thoughts on it all.  My ‘plan’ is a water birth at home…but that could change depending on how I feel.  I owe ya’ll lots of posts, but will *try* not to make it all about bébés.

Come join me on my adventure and please to pass along any tips you may have.  I’m all ears as I go totally crunchy this pregnancy (I’ve already been adding raw pasture-raised eggs to my smoothie), so spread the love if you got it!

PS: Tomorrow we have a local plant nursery coming out to set up some landscaping and build me a garden, so needless to say…I’M SUPER STOKED!!!  Details to follow.

  1. Hi there – I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say congrats! I also consider myself fairly crunchy although I’m more of an urban hippie as I work in an office and live in a large city. My first son was born in a great pro-natural birth hospital (which is what I wanted) and I had a great waterbirth with a midwife. For my second just this past February I had a home waterbirth with a midwife and it was amazing – it’s so much better to be at home!!!! My other crunchy recommendation is to get your placenta encapsulated. It sounds gross but it helped me a lot with post-partum emotions and I guess is paleo in a way? haha … kudos on the chiro visits too, I went weekly in my last pregnancy and firmly believed they helped me to have a great natural birth. Good luck!

  2. Thanks Michaela! I’m excite for a successful waterbirth, but if it does pan out, any place in our home will work for me. I have actually talked about the encapsulation of my placenta with my midwife, and think I will go through with it. This is all new to me this go ’round, so I’m excited for tips from other crunchy mamas out there :)
