Meet Meredith Breitenbach, a mum of 2 (one on the way this month!), living in St Paul, Minnesota.
Tell us about yourself:
I’ve been married to Mike, the love of my life, for 3 years. We have a daughter who will be 2 in April, and are expecting our second (a boy!) in April as well! The #1 thing we’re passionate about is family time. We love being together, traveling as a family, and spending as much time outdoors as possible!
Tell us about your Motherhood journey so far
It’s been an AMAZING pregnancy, to be honest. My first, I was really sick and just nauseas ALLLLLL the time. This one has been great; I’ve only felt nauseas 2 days in the first trimester, and overall everything has just felt good. I don’t know if it’s because of the old wives tale that boys you don’t get sick and girls you do, or that life is just so chaotic with a toddler, a new job, moving, and life in general, that I just don’t have time to think about how I feel…but either way, I’ll take it! Although now that I’m 34 weeks I’m totally feeling the grind of the third trimester–can’t sleep, things hurt, etc.
What is your favourite:
Berries of any kind! I like to make parfaits with granola and yoghurt, but I try to stay away from that too much because of the sugar in yoghurt.
Way to stay active:
Being active during pregnancy……..that’s been a struggle. I walk around at work a lot, but that’s about it. Active when I’m NOT pregnant–hiking!
Self love act:
A massage and a pedicure!
The days are long but the years are short. Someone told me this, and now I see it everywhere. It is SO true.
Any final words?
Being a mom is the most beautiful thing, but it doesn’t come without its woes. I worry more than I ever have, think about every single terrible situation that could happen, and stress over the smallest thing. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the whole world. Your kids are truly the greatest gift from God.
