Say Goodbye to Baby Brain and Hello to Organization

Weekly Pregnancy Planner by VSHOP

This pregnancy I have had some serious baby brain. Before being pregnant with Sophie and experiencing pregnancy first hand I honestly thought that pregnant mamas, new mamas, and just mamas in general were making the whole baby brain thing up. For those that don’t know….. It is FOR REAL! There is no avoiding it, one day you realize you no longer have a short term memory and you literally have to write every. little. detail. down in order to remember it.

To make myself and how bad my baby brain is even more clear… not that long ago I shared on Instagram that I was 35 weeks pregnant, after going onto my app later that night I realized that I was actually only 33 weeks pregnant (I had checked the app a few hours before making the post and still made the error). I am sure that the lack of sleep also contributes to the lack of memory too.

Anyways, what I am getting at is, what if you had something that could aid you with this baby brain situation and help you be much more organized on the daily/weekly schedule and appointments? That would be pretty great right! Especially for first time mamas who might not be expecting the baby brain to kick in, this might make the perfect gift for them.

My friend and fellow designer, Victoria Senges of VSHOP, showed me a new product that she was launching and I just had to try it out and share it with all of you. This weekly “We Got This, Baby!” planner is customizable for every woman and their pregnancy with the ability to fill in the dates and tear off each page at the end of the week.

You can also keep the pages as a memento for after baby arrives as it allows you to record your mood, current cravings and other fun facts about how momma is feeling each week. On the right hand side you can detach “Questions for the Doctor” and “Things to buy for Baby” for when you head out of the house for your appointment or shopping date.

Since this product is new to the VSHOP and I am nearing the end of my pregnancy I have only been able to use it for a short while, but I knew right when seeing it that it would be something that I would want my hands on from the start of pregnancy. I think it could be the perfect little gift to yourself when finding out your are pregnant or something that would make an amazing gift for a bestie after they share their exciting news with you.

  • Tuesday is one of our busiest mornings of the week. With breakfast, prepping lunch for Ezra, preschool snacks for Sophie and aiming to get all three dressed for their activities of the day there isn't a lot of me time. One thing I've learnt is that I need to make sure I am getting myself fuelled in the morning in order to be my best self and handle the morning rush with grace. I've been doing this two ways: 1. Eat an actual breakfast (not just the kids' scraps) and 2. Taking a minute to make a @nespresso.ca -- For those extra tired mornings I'll put in a Double Espresso capsule!
•
For those local that are interested in getting a @nespresso.ca machine for yourself, you will be able to shop in person at their new Boutique in Metrotown! Did you get a chance to see it in my stories on Monday? If not, head to my highlights for a sneak peek. #Partner #NespressoMoments #NespressoMorning
