Baby boy is always hungry and growing! 🍕 #22weeks
. —Some pregnancy observations—-
I’ve had a huge appetite & a lot of heartburn throughout 1st trimester. I REALLY love pizza. I only get nauseous when I’m hungry and don’t get food RIGHT away. .
My hormones caused me to break out around my mouth area. I had 7 pimples on my face at one point.. the most I’ve ever had in my life. Fortunately it’s gone now. .
We found out the gender early on by week 12 with the Panorama prenatal screening test. But my mom and a few relatives predicted that we would have a Boy ever since last year before we got pregnant! Supposedly our son appeared in their dreams 🤷🏻♀️ .
I feel more forgetful and constantly tired... Naps are my best friend now .
I felt him move by week 16. Steven felt the baby kick for the first time last week and it scared him 😂 But now he’ll want to tap my belly to wake up the baby all the time .
I decided I will eat moderate amounts of raw sushi because I crave fish, but started to hate cooked fish, especially cooked salmon ☹️ I’ve never gotten food poisoning before / I do stay away from high mercury fish & no oysters still .
I still have a hard time sleeping for more than 6 hours / constantly have to pee. Oh, and I’m still always hungry 😬
This is for those who have asked for bump pics 😉. The left pic was taken right after I found out I was pregnant in Feb & right one was taken this morning, and wow is time flying! Baby boy is kickin’ up a storm. November will be here before we know it! 🤰#thatpregolife#itsaboy#bumpie#bump#dueinnovember
How did you feel when you got to 40 weeks/or near the end of pregnancy?🙋🏻♀️
There are SO many feelings that can happen- excitement, nervousness, anxiousness, tiredness...the list goes on.▪️
Did you have 40 weeks in your mind as ‘the end’ of pregnancy or did you prepare to go beyond?▪️
The average mom gives birth at 40+5 (from @Ebbirth). Preparing yourself to go beyond your estimated due date (only 5% of moms give birth on their due date) can help you through some of these emotions that may come up at 40 weeks.▪️
I gave birth to Pippa at 41+1 and will again prepare myself to go past 40 weeks because it could happen again and is totally normal if it does.💁🏻♀️

31 (+2) weeks down.
9 weeks left, 61 days until our due date.
Seriously starting to wonder if 61 days is enough time to finish getting ready. Finishing work next week will certainly help.
This one napped like a dream this afternoon which meant Daddy and I got to have lunch in peace 👌🏼🙌🏼 A cheeky @nandosuk to celebrate the start of my maternity leave (taken a lot earlier than planned, on Doctors recombinations, but relieved I get to slow down).🤰🏼 #maternityleave#8monthspregnant#34weekspregnant
When you accidentally open your camera at the gym, and realize how ridiculous you look so you take a selfie. Which is totally not cheesy when you’re pregnant cause clearly you’re not showing off your ripped abs, right!? #5weeksandcounting#bumpie
Side note: if you drop the weight you’re squatting cause- pregnant - you may have a moment when you realize you’ve made up for it in body weight😂🤦♀️ #mathishard
2 babes and their bumps 🤩 #regram via @jeniferkueter 🤰🤰 "Pregnancy is beauiful in so many ways, but also challenging at the same time. Watching your body change is overwhelming and waking up with a beach ball replacing where your abs used to be can be quite the shock. But, feeling them move inside of you, and carrying around another life has already made this completely worth it. Also having a pregnant bestie like @amdiekman by your side who you can talk to about the crazy things happening to your body has made this experience amazing so far. Wishing @justindefratus and @jakediekman were able to be here with us enjoying this sunshine, but we appreciate your sacrifices and hard work, allowing us to enjoy this time before we are consumed with baby poo and bottles. Also, you know our family vacations will be epic, until the kids are 16 then we’ll have to worry🤣" #BabyDiekman#BabyDeFratus#23weekspregnant#24weekspregnant#sexymamamaternity#tryingtolookliketheemoji 👯♀️ #bump#bumplove#bumplife#bumpie#maternitypics#preggo#preggers#motherhood

Don't mind the light flare, it's what happens when your instahubby isn't home and you have to precariously balance your phone on a clothes horse while on self timer mode to take your last bumpie before the big day! Phew! We are getting induced tomorrow which meant I had one guaranteed day (provided she didn't make an unexpected exit - which I knew she wouldn't 🙄) to pamper myself and have some me-time! I highly recommend antenatal massages to any pregnant mamas. I've had a few over the last few months at various places and would have to say that my favourite would be today's at @eastdayspa ♡. I felt like a queen 🙌 and left on a high! Much deserved as the last few days have been pretty intense (I don't think I've cried this much over nothing/everything since the beginning of my pregnancy)! Now to enjoy the last few hours before (what I'm sure will be) a restless night! Nerves and excitement and all the hormones at an all time high at the moment! Wish us luck!
To my daughter, the little girl on the edge of becoming a big sister.
Hello my baby. Right now you are asleep next to me, cuddled into my arm, and snoring. You had a good day today, and went to sleep happy. It is just us, as it has been since you first came to me, and as it will continue to be. You came to me after the absolute darkest point in my life, the loss of your sibling. So close to being “safe” at 12 weeks. Some would call you a rainbow but you are so much more than that to me. You are the first strip of warm sunlight across a lawn thick white with ice. You are the feeling when you first jump into an cold pool on a hot day. You are the brightest star in the sky, the way birds sing when they’re happy, and the matching flame to mine.
You will have to share me soon. I know you’ll do amazingly, because not for a day will you stop being my number one. I promise I will not allow anyone to force you to “grow up” into your role, because you’re still oh so small. I will continue to nurture you, and remember that you are still learning as much as I am. You are perfect, as you are. You made me a mother, quenched my temper of fire, and made me learn to be all things that I was not. Patient. Loving. Open. Calm. You saved me, and I will not ever let that slip from my mind.
I love you, more than all the stars in the sky 💞🌈☀️
Fact: I will never stop loving polka dots 💕 Another super versatile top from Seraphine - wear it over the bump, wear it while nursing (full button down front), wear it open with a tank underneath or wear it knotted (post pregnancy) if you’re finding it just a little too loose. I love playing around with the clothes in the shop to see just how much I can do with them! 📷: @annephoto
Celebrating my 29th birthday in my pjs, eating my favorite cake (Ferrero rocher) and binge watching The Office with my husband and Noah..& I wouldn’t have it any other way 💕 So here’s a picture from yesterday! It’s getting harder to get a picture where Noah is actually looking at the camera, so this is as good as it’s going to get. Here’s to my last year in my 20s!
