I’m alive!!!

And still quite with child. In belly.

In extra extra large belly. Seriously, a lot of my maternity clothes don’t even fit anymore. That’s how large.

And I am STUBBORN, so with three-ish (or less! pretty please, less!) weeks left to go, I refuse to buy more. Thankfully, currently being on my surgery rotation means I can wear scrubs every day during the week and then I pretty much live in leggings and too-small tops all weekend.

It’s classy.

Ultimate Blueberry Pancakes

To be honest, these last few weeks I’ve felt like I’ve been hit by a truck-sized load of EXHAUSTION. It’s like the first trimester all over again, except with an actual being inside of me who moves constantly and gives me Braxton Hicks constantly and makes me eat Tums constantly.

This little girl and I are going to have words when she finally pops out. And by that I mean, I’m probably going to eat her feet.


Ultimate Blueberry Pancakes

Suffice it to say, my cooking mojo has been all over the place. Except, apparently, when it comes to BREAKFAST.

I could spend hours dreaming about breakfast, wishing for pancake French toast crepe omelet mornings all day every day.

There is truly no limit to my obsession, and I’ve been allowing myself to indulge as much as and whenever possible because who knows when this kiddo will make her appearance and put all of my lazy weekend mornings to an end. Combine this with my near-constant berry cravings and you’ll understand why I HAD TO HAVE these ULTIMATE blueberry pancakes. They are originally from my friend Ashley’s site. She calls them the “blueberry pancakes of your dreams” and she is so right because I haven’t stopped dreaming about them since I made them a few weeks ago.

Crazy, vivid, I-can-almost-taste-them preggo style dreams.

There is really nothing better than waking up knowing that these are in your near future. Heck, maybe I’ll even get my act together and freeze a few batches for quick post-baby breakfast eats…if I can restrain myself from eating them all first!

    These pancakes look amazing. I think I’d look like I was about to have a baby if I ate as many of them as I want to just looking at the pictures!!


  2. Surprisingly breakfast is the one meal I’ve been able to still effort into (maybe because “complicated” breakfasts are still easy) since L was born. Adding these pancakes to the rotation asap because blueberry pancakes > than almost anything else.

  3. These look amazing- love the greek yogurt! Pinning 🙂

  4. Hang in there! the end can feel long. Freeze some of these delicious pancakes and you’ll be so overwhelmingly happy when you find them!

  5. Kate says:

    OK truth time, how many pancakes are in your freezer?

  6. Wow three weeks left?! Ahhhh so exciting!! These pancakes look incredible and your little baby is going to be such a fabulous cook too 😉

  7. Hang in there mama – it won’t be long now! In the meantime, I think the only thing to do is keep eating pancakes. I’ll eat some for you! 🙂

  8. They are so fluffy and soft! I want some for my breakfast too.

  9. I am also a berry obsessed person and I can tell you, these pancakes sing to me! Blueberry is my favorite and unless i make them myself, you just can’t get a decent blueberry pancke stack around these parts.
    Can’t wait to see your baby girl!

  10. Omg, yes. The last few weeks are torture – baby is using your insides as a trampoline, you’re so uncomfortable, you can’t sleep, you have to pee every 15 minutes. It’s all kinds of fun! Make a triple batch of these pancakes and freeze for later… they’ll be a lifesaver when baby girl finally appears!

  11. I’d love to start my day with a stack of these pancakes! Blueberry pancakes are a favorite around here!

    pancake lover here. big time. these look great to me, and i have no doubt i could go to town on a triple stack…and i’m not even eating for two. 🙂

  13. Heather says:

    Mmmmm, these look and sound spectacular. I’m with you, when it got to the end, I refused to buy anymore maternity clothes. I was enormous, and really didn’t care what I looked like or if my belly hung out. Haha.

  14. 3 weeks left…so crazy!!! it’s funny, you are due a couple days before me so reading your thoughts is like reading my own! these pancakes look fabulous.

  15. These look fantastic! I have been eating blueberry pancakes the past few weekends – they are one of my favorites. You are getting so close! I am also starting to outgrow some of my maternity clothes, but I’m only 24 weeks (with twins) LOL! I’m giant!

    This time of year I go on overdose for berries, especially blueberries. Beautiful way to use them! Saturday morning’s breakfast? Yes!

  17. Pam says:

    I love pancakes anytime of day, especially blueberry! They look awesome.

    I hope you are doing well… sending good thoughts and love your way!

  18. Sometimes breakfast is my motivation to wake up early in the morning…haha! And with a breakfast like this, I bet I would be excited to wake up at 6 AM. (Okay, maybe 7:30 AM). Love adding Greek yogurt to my pancakes though, makes it SO much better!!
