20 Weeks Pregnant: Still Doesn’t Feel Real, Yet

I guess it’s a perfect time as any to start blogging about this pregnancy. I had been waiting for that moment where it felt real but to be honest, that moment hasn’t happened yet. Nervous? Maybe. My husband and I wanted this for so long, almost too long and now that it’s here, I’m nervous as heck. As you may know, we’ve had our fair share of challenges. I’ve even blogged about them here. A month before I found out I was pregnant, I wrote that blog post about our challenges with fertility, I said “If we have another child, that would be a dream come true but if I can be honest, I’m past the dreaming stage, my hopes are dwindling and I am facing a harsh reality here that it could very well not be a possibility for us. I have come to accept what I have, what I cannot change and just try my best to be healthy, get healthier and do what I can. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t… I guess it just doesn’t. That’s about as easy as it can be at this point. It’s a process that I’ve learned does not come easy.” That was posted September 6th, 2014. On October 25th, 2014, I found out I was pregnant.

3 Ingredient Cereal Bars

School mornings and breakfast are always crazy at my house and besides cereal or bananas we are always trying to find a new fast option. I also have a kid that loves treats after dinner and some days the last thing he needs is sugar, he has plenty of energy. I had heard about moms taking the Rice Krispy treat idea and turning it into a cereal bar so I figured I would try it out. And the best part is if you have a kid with a peanut allergy you can use almond butter, or I make it that way so that it can go to school in a lunchbox no problem.
