Baby James’ Birth Story

I have found myself with a few free minutes as James is getting his newborn glamour shots. Since these moments are a rarity these days, I thought I would take advantage of the opportunity to share his birth story.

As you are all aware, my “estimated” due date was Monday, June 5th. That day had come and gone and I was STILL pregnant. Yay. (Please note the sarcasm, ha!) I am thankful I wasn’t uncomfortable or experiencing any issues with my pregnancy at the end, but it is HOT in Naples this time of year, so my doctor, Kyle and I agreed on an inducement date of June 8th if the little guy hadn’t yet made his appearance.

Fast forward to 5am on June 8th. Whomp, whomp. No baby yet. So at 6am I called the hospital to hold my room, our friend who graciously decided to watch Dean arrived, and we were ready to go! But we had a problem… there was no room at the hospital. We were put on their “hold” list and were told to wait for their call to arrive at the birth center. So we waited and waited and waited some more… Talk about an emotional day! Finally, around 3pm, the hospital called and they were ready for us. We thought we’d already have our baby by that point but were just happy to finally be called in after being a bit anxious throughout the day.

Our friend came back over (we decided she should go back home around 10am as we were all anxious and just waiting around watching the clock tic), we packed up the car and we were off.

I don’t think it hit me that we were going to HAVE A BABY until our L&D nurse was walking us back to our room and she asked me how I felt. I cried. It was a different experience than I had with Dean, I was nervous and I knew what to expect during labor this go round… All cause for an anxious mama!

After completing the initial forms, paperwork and basic medical prep like my IV, I was FINALLY hooked up to pitocin around 5pm. After a few hours, the plan was to have my doctor come in and break my water to speed things up. There was no turning back then!

Per my nurse, my contractions started right away. I could feel them but they weren’t painful in the least so she continued to monitor both myself and baby for any signs of distress and we played the waiting game. I knew I wanted to wait until I was at least 4cm dilated before receiving my epidural – I didn’t want my labor to slow down or to pump too many medications into my body at once. After about an hour, she told me I must have a super high pain tolerance as I still wasn’t overly uncomfortable. Shortly there after however, the pain arrived so I knew something must be happening. I was checked and was 4cm (I arrived at around 1cm). WOOHOO, time for pain meds! I wasn’t about to tough it out last time even though my epidural didn’t full take with Dean. I figure some pain relief is better than zero.

Oh the epidural. I have come to the conclusion that I just don’t have good luck with them! When a student anesthesiologist arrived to administer my epidural and she asked me if we were going to try for a girl in the future (Don’t ask a pregnant woman in labor if she is going to have another baby… she will feel the urge to strangle you in between contractions!), I should have assumed things would no go as planned, ha… She couldn’t get the needle or catheter (not sure which, I tried to block out the conversation so I didn’t faint) in correctly, so after a few tries, her trainer took over and finally got everything administered correctly. I was NOT nice to them, but when you’re shoving a needle into my spinal area multiple times while I’m having painful contractions, they shouldn’t have expected nice ;-)

This time, the epidural DID work so that is a bonus! I was numb basically right away (almost too numb I think because I couldn’t move my legs) which I appreciated after going through the experience. It did give me some nasty shakes and I felt super jittery/uncomfortable, but I didn’t feel pain and my stats were fine. Baby’s heart rate did drop a bit after the epidural was administered so the nurses flipped me to my side and turned off the pitocin for him to adjust. I was mentally panicking and worried we would be sent in for an emergency c-section, but a minute or two later, my water broke and his heart rate returned to normal. PHEW! My nurse told me he probably dropped quickly (causing my water to break) and his heart needed a few minutes to catch up.

It was around 8:30pm at that point and I was now at 5cm. I was told things would probably move quickly at this point based on how I progressed with Dean, so it was a good thing I received my pain meds when I did.

They weren’t kidding!

Around 9:45pm, I felt some pressure so the nurse checked my progress and I was 9cm dilated! Eep – things were getting real. All of the medical staff started prepping for delivery, my doctor was paged, and I was trying not to panic. For some reason, I was very anxious this time around… I am not sure if it was the pitocin (I had it with Dean too though), the epidural experience/shakes, having to wait all day to head to the hospital, or being induced versus going into labor naturally, but I was nervous something would go wrong the entire time. So, although I was anxious, I was happy we were nearing the end.

My doctor arrived a little after 10pm and after a quick exam, told me I could do this in ONE push. I laughed and thought to myself, We will see… I am not a good pusher. Kyle and my nurse had to help a lot with my legs as I couldn’t move/feel them, and although it wasn’t one push, it only took 5 minutes and Baby James arrived at 10:27pm! It took me 45 minutes of pushing for Dean to arrive so I was pleasantly surprised at the shortened time.

James was placed on my chest and screamed nice and loud. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 2 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long.

James did have a bit of meconium at birth so I am very grateful we decided to induce. Everything happens for a reason, right? Thankfully, he had no negative side effects (he didn’t breathe it in) and was given an Apgar score of 9 by the pediatric nurse that examined him. He was placed on my chest after his initial evaluation and latched on almost immediately… and continued to nurse basically all night ;-)

I was in labor for just about 5 1/2 hours and even though I was induced and felt icky from the epidural, I would say I had a positive experience. The nurses were incredible, I love my doctor, and Kyle was a great partner and checked my readings to calm me down whenever I heard an odd beeping sound.

I still attest that the worst parts of birth (for me) are the IV, the dang blood pressure cuff that NEVER STOPS, and the epidural. While I am thankful for all three of them, I hate them the most! I didn’t rip the BP cuff off this labor though, so I would say my tolerance is improving ;-)

I must say that I am much happier with James Reilly on the outside than the inside. I am also happy that I had a great birth experience… and that the whole birthing process is over, ha. I am recovering quite quickly this time and am thrilled to have two sons to love!

In case you’re curious, you can find Dean’s birth story here.

Introducing James Reilly!

We welcomed James Reilly Klapman into the world on June 8, 2017!


He arrived at 10:27pm weighing 7 pounds, 2 ounces and measuring 19 1/2 inches long.

We are all in love with Baby Jamie (<– his nickname), especially Big Brother Dean.


I’ll be back soon with his birth story, but for now I’m enjoying all of his sweet newborn cuddles!

Baby #1 vs. Baby #2 – Pregnancy Differences

They say each pregnancy is different.

I’m not sure who “they” entails, but from my experience – even with babies of the same gender, the saying is totally accurate!

Baby Boy #2 has definitely given me more of a run for my money than Dean ever did… I’m nervous this is a foreshadowing into his future personality. Yikes! #sendwine

I’ve noticed quite a few differences in my  pregnancies and I thought it would be fun to share them with y’all today.

1. Pregnancy #2 = MORE tired.

Man, oh man, am I TIRED. I contribute this to a few things… When I was pregnant with Dean I did not have a full time job nor was I chasing after a toddler. The past few weeks everyone has asked me why I’m still at work. My response? Working is much easier than chasing a 2 year old all day! #truth I had the ability to nap, run errands, relax at the beach, leisurely enjoy meals, and sleep in as late as I wanted with my first pregnancy. This one… HAHAHAHAHAHA. Nope. All of those things take a toll on ya and I’m sure that is why I feel like an exhausted MOMbie most of the time. Thank goodness for Spark!

2. Pregnancy #2 = Morning (ALL DAY) sickness.

When I was pregnant with Dean, I maybe (MAYBE) felt nauseated once or twice. This pregnancy? I was nauseous from weeks 6-18 and it was AWFUL. I constantly felt like I had the worst hangover EVER without the enjoyment of drinking wine the evening before. Fun, right? I’m thankful it went away for the most part for the remainder of my pregnancy, but I have experienced a few “blech” spells in the third trimester. I have heard that girls tend to cause more morning sickness… Like most things, I think it just depends on the pregnancy and your hormones!

3. Pregnancy #2 = MORE poundage.

Yay! <– Sense my sarcasm?! ;-) Honestly, I’m not super worried about this AT ALL. I bounced back pretty quickly with Dean and have a plan for my postpartum weight loss this time around too. I started at a much lower weight when I became pregnant this time than I did when I became pregnant with Dean. I am under the belief that your body seeks to get to a certain point (equilibrium if you’d like to call it that…) while pregnant. Since I started lower, I had to gain more to get there. ANDDDDDD when you’re nauseated for months on end and can only consume pizza and quesadillas, the pounds are bound to add up quickly! With Dean I think I gained somewhere in the low 20’s and this time I’ve gained about 37 pounds I think. I plan to use my 6-week postpartum check up weight as my baseline of how much I still have left to lose. I had about 10 remaining pounds with Dean and anticipate having 10-15 with this dude.

4. Pregnancy #2 = LESS worry and anticipation.

If Dean didn’t move for more than 10 minutes while I was pregnant, I would poke my belly to get him to kick. Poor kid, he is probably going to have a complex when he grows up! This time around I figure most things I’m experiencing are normal and I go with the flow. Plus, between work and Dean, I’ve been MUCH busier this pregnancy and I don’t have time to sit and contemplate each decision I make during the day. I’m also much less anxious about labor and delivery. I think I am just trying to block it out of my mind, haha. I know what to expect and am not trying to figure out an unknown experience this time.

5. Pregnancy #2 = MORE questions from strangers.

I’m not sure if this is because I interact with more people on a daily basis due to my job or strangers feel the need to ask more questions when you’re dragging a toddler around while 7+ pregnant, but I have received more questions this time. What is the gender?… Oh, are you going to try again for a girl?… Is this your first baby? (I always take this as a compliment that I appear to be well rested, ha!)… How are you feeling?… Why are you still working out? (EYE. ROLL.)… How much time are you taking off after baby?… And the list goes on. I don’t mind the questions, unless I’m feeling particularly hormonal I just answer and go on with my day… or complain to a good friend about people’s stupidity ;-)

A few things have felt the same and for that I am grateful. I did the same workouts (I actually ran LONGER this time around, yay!), my belly is about the same size as with Dean, my hair is nice and thick, and I have had relatively easy pregnancies.

Now excuse me as I go try to walk this little guy out… his time is up!

If you’ve had multiple pregnancies, how did they differ? How were they the same?

Still Pregnant…

Oh, hi!

Remember me? Becky, the blogger behind Olives ‘n Wine? Yes? No?

It’s been 5 whole months and boy do I have a lot of updates to share with y’all.

  • I’m due with Little Brother (LB) TODAY, June 5th. Personally, I think my due date is closer to the 9th… we shall see!
  • With LB joining Dean in our family, I began my SAHM journey today. Wish me luck!
  • Yep, that means I am no longer managing group exercise or personal training at my favorite YMCA. Thankfully, I will continue to teach my beloved BODYPUMP and Spinning classes there after my maternity leave.
  • Not much travel (or wine… wahhh) have gone down recently. Dean and I traveled to Iowa in January, we visited Disney World as a family for my birthday, and other than that we’ve been enjoying the lovely Florida winter here in Naples. Kyle and I are planning our first non-kid vacay in the far off future though… Ideas? Recommendations? We’re thinking wine country ;-)
  • And yes, I’m bringing this little blog OUT OF HIBERNATION! Wahooooo!

More details to come on the above points! This is just a quick check in to let y’all know I’m still alive and kickin’… and experiencing a lot of kicks inside tonight as well, haha.

Make sure you’re following me on social media for up-to-the-minute snapshots of my life:

What is new with YOU? What have I missed? Fill a girl in!

Baby Boy #2 Wishlist

We are excited to welcome Little Brother into our family in June!

I was (not-so) secretly hoping for a second boy – I had images of bunk beds and a baseball-themed room and brothers in my head, PLUS boy meant we didn’t need any new baby items. Although, let’s be real, if it were a baby sister on the way, she’d end up wearing lots of blue ;-)

Thankfully, a second boy it is – Deany gets a brother and mama gets her bunk beds!

We’ve had family and friends offer to show throw us a baby shower for the little guy, but because we need NOTHING, we’ve kindly turned down offers.

That being said, we do have a bit of a “wishlist” as our family grows. Most of these are all wants rather than needs (besides diapers!), but it is still fun to look!

So, here is our wishlist for Baby Boy #2.

1. Diapers. Obviously. We used Pampers brand with Dean until he was a size 4 then we switched to Target Up & Up brand which has worked well for us. We are hoping they work just as well this time around.

2. Pacifiers. Again, I’m stating the obvious here. Glow in the dark is KEY if you ask me ;-)

3. Instant Pot. Okay, you can laugh. But seriously, this thing can make shredded chicken in about 15 minutes. SOLD. Quick meals are lifesavers with toddlers and babies… Yup, totally on the wishlist.

4. PacaPod Madison Leather Baby Bag. DROOL. How gorgeous is this diaper bag?! I know, I know… the price tag is hefty but when you will be carrying something every. single. day. for at least two years, it is worth it! I also love that this can be adjusted to be a shoulder bag or a backpack. I’ve been eyeing baby bag backpacks lately and would love to carry this beauty around daily.

Summer Infant Baby Touch Pan/Scan/Zoom Video Baby Monitor, 3.5&quot;

5. Summer Infant Baby Monitor. This is more of a need on our list. Our current Motorola baby monitor is AWFUL. It never keeps signal and beeps LOUDLY when it loses connection with the camera… which is typically right when I’m falling asleep so it not only wakes me but also Dean. Lovely. I can’t wait to throw it away and hopefully replace it with this monitor that comes with glowing reviews!

Baby Jogger 2016 City Select Double Stroller with 2nd Seat, Onyx

6. City Select Double Stroller. I do NOT like wide strollers. You know, the ones with two seats side by side. They don’t fit on sidewalks, you can’t walk past them, and they’re just HUGE. I wasn’t sure a “double decker” stroller existed but some mama’s in my mom group pointed me to the City Select. The price tag is hefty, but again, this is something that we will be using for years. I like the multiple configurations for this one and considering we can go on walks outside 365 days/year in Florida, it is worth it!

7. City Select Double Stroller Carseat Adapter. We gotta be able to connect the infant car seat to the stroller… A little add on to #6 :-)

That’s what is on our list currently… I am looking for recommendations for a RUNNING stroller for 2 kiddos. We won’t need it until around December 2017 as I like to wait 6-ish months before running with little ones. If you have any recommendations, I’m all ears!

Second time mama’s, what was/is on your baby wish list?

Younique!

I am really excited to share that – after months (no joke!) of consideration, I’ve decided to sign up as a Younique Presenter! Younique came out with a new Presenter Kit at the beginning of this year and it sold me. A few of the items in the new kit have been on my to-try list and since I was going to spend almost $99 purchasing them, I figured I might as well get the discount too!

Younique Presenter Kit

I am what you call a “kitnapper” ;-) This means that I purchased the Presenter Kit for $99 (it includes almost $300 worth of makeup!!) and plan on using my presenter-status solely for the discount on makeup. That being said, I AM keeping an open mind and doing my best to take the time to learn about the business opportunity as well. I want to make sure I’m informed about EVERYTHING Younique in case I need to answer a question. And well, I signed up as a distributor with AdvoCare with the very same intentions and it grew into a nice little side hustle for me that is paying off my student loans. Yay!

Now, let’s be real, I am totally not a makeup guru and the thought of me doing a makeup “how-to” video is comical… So definitely don’t expect me to be posting videos with makeup tips and tricks anytime soon ;-) What I do know is that I love every item of Younique that I’ve ever tried and not only am I excited to finally have a discount on my favorite beauty goodies, I’m excited to share them with all of you!

My current top 3 favorites include:

  • Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eyeliner <– I was SO scared to try this that I waited almost 2 months after my initial order to test it out. Ummm… Love at first application! Not only is it incredibly easy to apply (I am no makeup artist, haha…), it doesn’t move from your eyelids AT ALL. No more eyeliner below my eye and no running down my face during a workout. YASSSSSS!
  • Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ – This mascara was very recently reformulated and the new formula was included in the presenter kit I received. I LOVED the old formula and this one is even better!! My lashes look longer and fuller and it even seems a bit easier/faster to apply. I have blonde eyelashes so even though they’re fairly long, you can’t seem ’em without mascara. SUPER annoying. I haven’t tested this out during a workout yet but I will let you ASAP if it holds up during a sweat session.
  • Lucrative Lip Gloss – I confess. I am a lip gloss junkie! I love trying any and all brands of lip gloss but I am not too brave when it comes to bright/bold colors ;-) I love that the Lucrative Lip Gloss is affordable so I can try multiple colors and that it isn’t sticky. At all! There is almost nothing I hate more than sticky lip gloss, LOL. #firstworldproblems

Now for Younique products that I am super excited to try!

  • Moodstruck Lip Exfoliator – I don’t know about you, but my lips are ALWAYS dry. Can’t wait to give this a try and have my gloss go on nice and smooth. (FYI – This is included in the presenter kit so I will be trying it within the next week!)
  • Lip Bonbons Tinted Lip Balm – Along the same dry lips line… The Bonbons are supposed to be super  nourishing and I can’t wait to try it out!
  • Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation – I’m not a huge foundation girl but EVERYONE raves about this product so it is most definitely on my list. Once baby comes I know my skin is going to be looking “blah” due to hormonal changes and I’m hoping this can help a mama out!
  • BB Flawless Complexion Enhancer – I’ve always been intrigued by BB creams so naturally I’m intrigued by this product too. Moisturizer and foundation in one means fewer steps while I’m trying to get ready with a toddler clinging to my leg, haha!
  • Moodstruck Minerals Concealer – I’m a mom. ‘Nuff said.
  • Royalty Moisture Boosting Gentle Cleanser – I’ve been searching for a new cleanser for a while now. Fingers crossed I love this one!
  • Royalty Detoxifying Mask – OMG AM I SO EXCITED TO TRY THIS!!!!! My friend always posts photos of herself on Facebook with this (charcoal-based) mask and it looks like a great product. I received a few samples in my presenter kit so be on the lookout for a scary charcoal-mask selfie, haha!

I have A LOT to learn and a lot of new beauty products to try. If you have any tips or tricks or any favorite Younique products, give me a shout out in the comments. I’m super excited to FINALLY get into makeup at the age of {almost} 32 :-)

Baby Boy #2 Questionnaire

I saw this questionnaire on Heather’s blog and thought it would be a fun way to share some details about Baby Boy #2. I’ve also had a few questions for more posts about baby, so here ya go! ;)

img_6985

What were your first pregnancy symptoms?

I felt hungover ALL OF THE TIME. And super tired. That sucked… I wasn’t even enjoying wine and still felt awful, LOL!

What was your first reaction to your pregnancy?

It better be a boy. No joke… That was my first thought!

How far along were you when you found out?

6-7 weeks. Way TMI here, but I didn’t get my period back until I stopped breastfeeding Dean and then it took two months… SO, I only had it once since Dean was born and my doctor told me it could take some time to get back to a regular cycle so I thought my body was just out of whack.

How did your parents/family react?

Surprised? Excited? Normal family reactions.

How did you tell your friends?

I texted them the photo I shared on Instagram and Facebook prior to posting it publicly. We weren’t super creative this time around! Sorry second child…

Baby Details

Due Date?

My doctor says June 6th… I say June 12th. We shall see!

Will you find out the sex ahead of time?

Done and done. BOY! Woohoo!!! Bunk beds here we come!

Do you have any feelings about whether you’re having a boy or a girl?

I totally thought it was a girl because I was never sick with Dean but alas, this little guy is already giving me a run for my money.

Any names?

Not really. Dean was SO easy to name but I haven’t come across any boy names that I love yet. Kyle told me last night he has a few ideas and we are going to start a list on our chalkboard. I obviously like traditional names that aren’t overused… Hopefully we can find one!

How many ultrasounds have you had?

Two. My doctor does them each visit. He has 3D capabilities this time too which is cool but also a bit creepy!

Have you felt the baby move?

I don’t know. It is so hard to tell early on. Who knows! He was moving like a crazy man in both ultrasounds though so maybe I have and just haven’t recognized it ;)

Will you be sharing weekly pregnancy updates on the blog?

No. I didn’t share that often with Dean because I think weekly updates are somewhat boring. I’ll pop in and share every now and then though!

Pregnancy Details

How have you been feeling?

Crappy! I think I’m starting to feel mostly better and am definitely sleeping better/have more energy.

Do you have any cravings/ aversions?

CARBS, LOL! I’ll like something one day and then cannot stand the thought of leftovers the next. It’s super fun…

Have you experienced any crazy pregnancy related emotions?

I think I get annoyed more easily. Kyle will tell you this is normal ;)

Any mood swings?

I feel like I’ve still been pretty level-headed. I do get crabby if I’m tired!

How far along are you now?

Per my doc’s calculations… 17 weeks on Christmas Day.

How has work/teaching been going?

Good! I actually ended up telling one of the girls who shares my office about my pregnancy early on because I felt so awful and didn’t want her to think I was a miserable person. LOL. She is pregnant too so it’s been fun in our office! Teaching has been GREAT. It helped to keep my mind off of my nausea for an hour at a time. I’m not modifying anything yet except my bench is tilted in BODYPUMP. Better safe than sorry in my opinion.

How do you think Dean will react to having a little brother?

He is going to hate life. Haha. Okay, not laughing about this but I guarantee he will act out for a good 6 months. He is a mama’s boy so seeing mama cuddling another baby is going to drive him crazy. Fingers crossed! They will (hopefully) eventually get along because they are getting bunk beds whether they like it or not. #momgoals

If you have any specific questions for me, ask below! I will be doing another survey in the future and will include your questions there.

And then there were two! 

Baseball games, wild adventures, and even more toys… We are excited for two little boys!

Baby Brother Klapman arriving early June 2017 💙

January 2, 2017 – What are YOUR goals?

2017 is right around the corner and I have one question for you. Okay, actually TWO questions for you ;)

What are YOUR health goals for 2017? And what will you be doing to improve your health on January 2, 2017?

  • Are you looking to lose a few of those holiday pounds? Or maybe, finally – once and for all, shed that baby weight? 
  • Do you want to improve your fitness game? Gain lean muscle mass? See those biceps POP?
  • What about your energy? Is one of your health focuses for the new year to have the same amount of energy you did as a teenager?
  • Eat healthier? Be more active? Feel fantastic inside and out? Fulfill something that is missing in your life?

What is stopping you from achieving your goals? Do you not know where to start? Does it seem intimidating? Have you ever considered working with a personal trainer and/or health coach to reach your goals?

I can’t answer these questions for you, you gotta dig deep for that. I can, however, tell you what program changed my health and life (and many of my personal training clients’ lives) for the better. Are you willing to listen? Maybe you already know…

AdvoCare.

Yup, this company has changed my life and I am so grateful. They released a HUGE announcement today and I cannot wait to share it with you all.

I use AdvoCare products daily for energy, improved workout performance (BODYPUMP!!), gaining lean muscle mass, and to feel great! My personal training clients have seen incredible results with the addition of not only the 24-Day Challenge, but also the Performance Elite products into their fitness routine. I love that the products are developed and tested by a team of scientists, nutritionists, and physicians, the products are 3rd party tested for banned substances, AND that AdvoCare provides multiple solutions for both the physical (energy, weight management, wellness, sports performance) and financial areas of your life.
