I can’t stop talking about my pregnancy! Now, this is most likely a topic you’re not used to reading on here. I hope that you are as thrilled as I am about life getting more exciting with each passing day. I feel extremely blessed to live a life worth writing about.
I am in awe knowing that there is life growing inside of me. I adore the pregnancy journey. It seems like just yesterday we found out that we are expecting a baby. Now, I am at 18 weeks with a growing belly. Which seems to be growing really fast! Realizing that time is short, I try not to waste any time on nonsense. I spend my days brainstorming and planning. My current lifestyle and short-term goals include:
living a healthy lifestyle
eating proper nutrition
having a positive mindset
showing enough love & attention to our baby
finding the perfect crib
shopping for a reliable stroller
preparing a nursery
planning our baby’s welcome party
To be completely honest with you, I have been slacking with my workouts. Snuggles and hot beverages are so inviting during the cold winter months in Minnesota. Although, I have been managing to get some squats and stretches in, it still feels like I am way behind my workout routine. I am looking forward to the warm spring days and the long walks with my husband. Speaking of my husband, Teddy has been the biggest support since day one. Thank you babe, for willing to buy me messy burgers. Thank you for providing me with the best care. Thank you for comforting me when I have crazy nightmares. We are both lucky to have you as a husband and a papa.
I am deeply in love with being pregnant. I try to filter everything that goes into my system. I listen and connect with my body like never before. Even though my baby and I have a special connection, we also have our differences. The baby is repulsed by the prenatal vitamins that I forcefully consume. The baby also doesn’t seem to understand why kale, broccoli, and cauliflower are so important?! Good thing I’m a cool mom! We both compromise. I’m just glad that we can agree on collagen powder, vitamin C & D supplements.
Throughout my pregnancy journey, I’ve been able to experience happiness, health, and satisfaction. I love you Jesus for making this process so easy and delighting. Our child belongs to You!
