What is better than having all of your favorite gals together, eating yummy food and playing fun games… while also being surrounded in a rainbow wonderland?! Nothing. There is nothing better than that! Especially after months of social distancing! My heart is just so full.
We celebrated Ian’s first Father’s Day by taking maternity pictures together! We had such a blast! I honestly, cannot believe we will be a family of 3 (4 if you want to include our fur-baby, Indigo) in just a few short weeks!!
8 months?! Only one month to go!!! I honestly cannot believe it! 2020 may not have gone the way anyone would have expected… But I am just thankful that I get to bring a little bit of sunshine into the world this year with Scarlett! Truly, the rainbow at the end of the storm! ❤
Well hello, third trimester!!! I cannot even believe we get to hold our sweet baby girl in just about 2 months! What?! Despite all that 2020 has thrown our way, this pregnancy is FLYING by! Makes me super excited and super sad at the same time… I wish I was able to experience my pregnancy with her when the world was in a much better state, but at the same time I am just so thankful that I get to have her in my arms so so soon!
I’d like to think of myself as pretty self-sustaining, in that I don’t feel I needed a whole lot extra to make myself feel pretty “normal” during my pregnancy. But with that said, pregnancy is HARD WORK (I mean you are literally creating life) and there are some things that certainly helped me so far! So, I thought I would compose a list of 10 things that helped me throughout my first and second trimesters, in hopes that maybe it could help you too!
How on earth am I already 6 months pregnant?! Man oh man, this pregnancy is flying by… But at the same time, dragging on?? (I blame that on Covid-19 though) Either way, it is so crazy that we will get to meet our sweet baby girl in 3 short months! Ahhh!! I don’t know if I am ready!!!
I cannot tell if this pregnancy is flying by or if it is dragging on?? Either way, here we are at 5 months! So many changes, and so much growth is happening lately and I am just so blessed to be able to experience all the ups and downs that pregnancy brings!
Ever since I got pregnant, finding out the gender of our baby was one of the things I was looking forward to the most! Knowing that you will be bringing a life into the world is nothing short of a miracle, but knowing who you will be bringing into the world makes it just so much more real to me! Being able to call the baby by name, rather than “them” or “the baby” is just so special and life changing. Not only that, but in my recent experience, it was pretty shocking as well!
Hello second trimester! Well, technically I have been in it for a few weeks, but still! This is supposed to be the “golden trimester” where I get all my energy back and feel much more myself! Where as I don’t feel all the way back to normal yet, I have noticed a positive change! Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to embrace my pregnancy to the fullest! For now, here are my month 4 updates!
I wake up every morning in complete shock that I am carrying a life inside me! I have wanted to become a mother for SO LONG (anyone that truly knows me knows I was born a mother lol), so the fact that it is actually happening is just such a blessing and Ian and I are both just so excited! Each month I am going to document the changes to my body, my mind and my world; the beautiful journey of becoming a mom! Today, I am going to recap my first trimester of pregnancy so far (what?!) and you will get to see my first bump pics and read a few pregnancy Q&A’s that I will keep up with for each following month until D-Day! (delivery day) Let’s go!
