Hello! I stumbled upon your blog, and have loved following your story every since. I recently started my own blog about my son's special birth (www.kelseymango.blogspot.com). I noticed you had a new layout, and was wondering if you could answer a question for me... how do you get the links to your facebook page, pinterest, and youtube up on the search bar? I cant find out how to add those buttons to my own blog. Please help :) thank you!

The ones on my sidebar? It's a HTML code that I added a widget for. (The one I had yesterday was just a temporary layout while I made my new cute one :) ) Unfortunately, blogger doesn't have these buttons easily accessible, you have to make the code and either put it in manually or add the widget.

If you email me I can send you the code ( I can't send it over comments for some reason)

I am in love with your blog...
I was reading over thinks and I am just trying to find out how come you were losing weight while pregnant?

Aspen Ballard said...

Thanks so much, you're too sweet. I lost weight during pregnancy because I was so unhealthy before I was pregnant and as soon as I found out I was pregnant I cut out all alcohol (obviously), fast food, bread, ext and began a workout regimen because of a prior injury I had with my first pregnancy. I always upped my calories when the Dr said and drank lots of protein shakes :) The biggest thing was I was so unhealthy and transitioned to a healthy lifestyle. I wasn't trying to lose weight and definitely wouldn't recommend trying to. Hope it helped! Feel free to ask whatever :)

with my first pregnancy (two years ago) I gained almost 50 pounds and after having the baby I worked hard on losing weight and lost 35 pounds...I got pregnant in May of this year and I am in love with being pregnant but this time I'm finding it hard to except the weight gain... on Monday I will be 23 weeks and so far I have only gained 8.5 lbs since getting pregnant but I am going to the gym again starting Monday and wanted to know if you had any routines or recipes you could give me so the weight doesn't get out of hand :)

I definitely know where you're coming from (with my first I gained between 50-60 lbs, lost it all, then it crept back) but I think the biggest thing is realizing the weight gain is only temporary and you're getting a perfect angel out of it :) I would also consult with a Dr before starting to work out but as long as you get the ok from your Dr you can do anything workout-wise that doesn't strain you and nothing on your back (I also cut out abs) as for recipes if you click my nutrition tab everything should be good to eat while pregnant. Eating healthy is the biggest thing and if you get a craving then don't ignore it or one day it'll all catch up to you :) Also add 300 more calories a day through healthy foods (lean meats, veggies, fruits, ext)

Hi, congratulations on your beautiful family. I am 36 weeks pregnant and found your blog through the Bump. I saw your delivery photos and LOVED them. Did you have a photographer in the delivery room? How did you get those amazing photos? All the best!

My mom was in the room with me and took some photos :) I'm a photographer so I did a quick edit on them. Unfortunately I don't know of anyone in my town, besides myself, that does birth photography

I came across your hour long gym routine on pinterest the other day and made into a printable. I would love to send you the file so you could post it because having this cheat sheet with me made it really easy to follow your awesome instructions! email me if you would like me to send you the file (lauramooers@gmail.com). Also thank you for the awesome routine, I am still sore three days later and know that this will pay off.
