Week 17 Bump Shots

Week 17 has been the week that I have begun to get my energy back. I am very thankful to still be feeling pretty good and I almost feel invincible when it comes to house chores. I forget that it’s probably not a good idea to be climbing on the counters to drill a spice rack in the cupboards but I am just so energized lately and want to take advantage of it! This week I was able to do some much needed yoga and that has been just great. I feel like I am really helping myself get stronger in preparation for delivery. It kind of feels like I am training for a big physical competition or something so I am having fun while helping myself get stronger. Here are some bump pics from this week!

Especially since there was absolutely nothing last week. After I realized that, I... Continue reading

  • Veselina

    I know you have been quite some time ago in this situation, but I am now!! And have been amazed to read your statements on the nausea, because I also find the same general information that you have found, e.g. morning sickness and diziness, but never as what I experience – a whole day long comings and goings..
    Excuse me so much, I did not present myself! My name is Veselina Pekala! I would love to contact you, as I am a mother-to-be in abroad and I actually know noone here, since we moved 3 months ago! I find great deal of similarities between you and me and I am so happy I found you! Looking at your videos and pictures, not only about pregnancy, but all the essence of your simple and gorgeous website, makes me experience some kind of calmness, so.. I know it is late for my nausea-compation, but you have it and I also wanted to add thank you! Just for this thiny web-space of calmness, colour and sunlight :)))))
