The love of my life and I are so excited to finally share our secret WE ARE PREGNANT . One of my biggest dream was to have my very own family one day and God has blessed me.. little baby we can’t wait to see you. And yes guys get ready for bump’s pics 🤰#20weekspregnant#pregnant#bump#momtobe
It’s amazing what the human body can do, however it can be hard to come to terms with the changes your body goes through in pregnancy 🤰🏻 But I just keep thinking about the beautiful baby I will have at the end of it all 🎀 #pregnantlife#20weekspregnant
#tbt recente hoje! Saudades do dia emocionante quando contei pro meu marido que ele iria ser papai! Pra quem não sabe, meu marido é apaixonado pro ciclismo e eu comprei esse body de bebe com os seguintes dizeres “nascido pra pedalar com o papai”... ele quase morreu do ❤️! Fiz um vídeo. Vcs gostariam de assistir o vídeo da surpresa um dia? Ficou meio barulhento por causa do mar, mas se vcs votarem sim, posso postar um dia no YouTube! Q q vcs acham?
Me respondam tá bom? Dai posto se realmente vcs quiserem ver. Na verdade a gente tem vontade de mostrar pro universo! Mas deve ser só coisa de mãe coruja 🙊... #tbt#momtobe#estamosgravidos#20semanas#20weekspregnant
@gracedinbirth posted this truly magnificent moment: "I'm captivated by this beautiful image from @spokanebirthphotographer !!! 📷
I cannot recommend enough, having someone capture your birth on camera- not only for amazing moments like this... but to help you process your experience in your 4th trimester. 📷 Labor land is magic and many times, time blurs for Mama, events get fuzzy because your WHOLE being is working hard, and working ONLY for baby. 📷 Having photos and short videos of your labor can be so incredible- you begin to SEE the work you did from the outside and your memories begin to take shape around not only what you experienced, but also around what others witnessed in you. 📷 📸 📷
Thank you, @spokanebirthphotographer for letting me share your beautiful work!! ♥️" #BirthPhotography#BirthPhotographer
Good old “Spatial Awareness”.
I couldn’t believe I smacked myself with the door, but I at least got a good laugh about it 🤣🤦🏼♀️.
It really is crazy how things change… .
I can’t exactly “jump out of bed” or “squeeze behind a table” or apparently open the damn refrigerator door without being reminded that I’m “different”. .
Do you guys remember way back when in school… you were given an Egg that you had to protect and crap to prove you wouldn’t kill a child - stupid right?
Well, I think they should strap a 8 lb medicine ball to you to see how you handle that as a test run instead! ⚽️🧐
I hit the halfway mark this past weekend! Feeling amazing at 20 weeks 😊 Shout out to the hubby @afstam34 for helping me stay accountable with continuing to run 🏃🏽♀️by watching our little pants-less Chico 😂 #20weeks#20weekspregnant#halfwaytobaby
Each day as my body changes with this little lion growing inside of me is an exploration. I sometimes get frustrated as I lose movements and poses that used to be my “normal.” My handstand and balancing game is mess as my center of gravity is in constant flux. But I still do most things... I still go running, although much shorter distances at a much slower pace.
I still practice yoga, although that practice is becoming less about power and more about creating the cocoon of a functional body around this little life.
I still dance, although mostly by myself with a lot less jumping and leaping and inverting than I used to.
I still live my life fully! #fulllife#fullbelly#donttellmeicant#icaniwillimust#wemadealittlelion#pregnantbellyshirt#noshame#pregnantyoga#yogaeverydamnday#20weekspregnant#614yoga
We are officially halfway there...!⏰ 140 days left until we get to welcome this little one into the world.🌍 I've started to feel some slight movement within the last couple of days...but someone must have been excited this morning knowing that she gets to come out in 20 weeks as because she was moving more than usual.💕 This baby has been so good to her mama & has made things pretty easy for me!
Both Kelly & I love her so much already and feel so blessed to be living this life together.❤️ #mamatobe#pregnancypost#pregnancyupdate#20weekspregnant#fitmama
Just found this online and oh my god how true! At 22 weeks, some days it still doesn't feel real but after spending the day in hospital yesterday it was the most real and most scary time of my life! So I started with bad stomach pains the early hours of yesterday morning (which I've had before at 9 weeks and turned out everything was fine), so I didn't panic too much. Then as the day went on they got stronger and stronger and I started to lose what I could only describe as 'water' from 'down below' so of course, I rang the hospital. They told me to go in straight away as it could be my waters breaking slowly (the most terrifying thing I've ever heard in my life!!) I sobbed and sobbed for an hour before I could even bring myself to tell my husband what they said and of course, as soon as I did, his coat and shoes were on and we weren't out of the front door! After 7.5 hours in total in hospital, baby was fine, my waters hadn't broken and I weren't in early labour. They did do some tests which have been sent off for analysis to see what's wrong though. But those 7.5 hours were the worst hours of my life and the thought of losing someone I haven't even met and don't even know yet was the most heartbreaking thing in the world. So I've never known words truer than this quote right here. Just so over the moon our baby boy is ok 💙
We had such a busy weekend full of things to celebrate, which would have made going to the gym virtually impossible. .
We didn’t even have time for preferences. .
I wanted cardio and he wanted weights... so we chose something that had both within 30 minutes. .
When things are convenient, they are simply easier to do 🙌🏼🏋🏼♀️
15 years ago today, after 3 days of labor and while an ice storm raged outside, I gave birth for the first time.
I had already been attending births for 5 years, but giving birth really changed me as a midwife - I felt a deepened sense of compassion for the difficulty inherent in much of the work that women choose to do. That compassion created even more of a commitment to listen to and walk with all of my sisters through all of their stories, however challenging and however different from my own.
I also felt shaken by the depth of my love for this tiny new being. That love created a heightened sense of commitment to birth safety and skill, and an almost-obsessed desire to confront my own trauma and deficiencies while acquiring knowledge that could help myself and others be more present, aware, and effective parents - all in the hopes of doing right by these tiny and pure creatures entrusted to us.
That day 15 years ago, I relied on the relationships I developed with my husband, my little brother(!), a dear friend, and my steadfast midwives to help guide and support me through the unknown. Today, I rely on an ever-larger community to help guide, inspire, educate, and share with my children as they navigate this wild, terrible, and beautiful world.
Another custom blanket going out today. This momma wanted the succulent print with a super hot pink rose minky backing. I can't wait to see photos of this babe coming home from the hospital in her cactus blankie!
Please don't ever hesitate to ask about making changes to items you see listed. 99% of the time I can accommodate those wishes, and I love helping you get exactly what you were envisioning!
While it`s code red in The Netherlands, I am enjoying code sun in Colombia ☀️. And secretly I wish to be in Holland as well to enjoy the snow ❄️. ⠀
