36 Week Pregnancy Update

I have to admit, I’m totally late posting this. But, I’m working on it! I’m currently almost 39 weeks pregnant, but here is my 36 week pregnancy update. Baby was the size of a HEAD OF LETTUCE! What’s going on with baby? -He is producing meconium, the tarry substance that will make up the first poop. -All of his organ systems are basically developed and operational except for the digestive system. -He won’t start full digestion until he starts eating...

8 Month Pregnancy Update | 33-35 weeks

8 months of pregnancy already DONE!! What is life. I feel like this entire process has flown by, but I also feel like I’ve been pregnant my entire life… a very strange feeling. Lets jump into the updates for month 8, shall we? I believe last update I did weeks 29-32. 33 weeks pregnant: Baby was the size of a cauliflower blossom! I was very tired this week, as with every week in this third trimester. But for some reason,...

What I Ate This Week

I haven’t done one of these posts on the blog in a HOT MINUTE. In an effort to getting back into blogging regularly, I thought it would be fun to bring these posts back. I love seeing what others are eating and getting recipe and meal inspiration from them. I find that snapping photos of my meals throughout an entire week is much easier for me to remember than in one day. Plus, my eating can be weird sometimes, so...

Safe Core Exercises During Pregnancy

Can you work your core during pregnancy? The answer is likely, yes. Of course, every woman and every pregnancy is different so make sure you always ask and talk to your doctor about any questions you may have during your pregnancy before turning to any type of website or blog. I’ll be honest, I haven’t worked my core during this pregnancy. One of the main reasons being that I rarely worked it before I got pregnant, so why start working...

7 Month Pregnancy Update | Weeks 29-32

I’m a little late writing this post, as I’m currently almost 36 weeks pregnant, BUT I still wanted to update the blog so I have hit for future reference, too 🙂 If you haven’t seen my youtube video, watch that as I discuss each week in more detail! If you’d rather read, read on. Week 29: Size: Pineapple! Symptoms: tired AF, headaches, peeing 24/7 (literally on another level) Foods I’m loving: I’m back to having times where my normal food...

Baby Shower

Just like that, our baby shower has come and gone! I can’t believe it’s already over and I’m 34 weeks pregnant (and 1 day) as I’m typing this. I had a lot of anxiety leading up to the shower, but thankfully it all turned out absolutely perfect. The week started on January 6th when one of my besties Sahara came into town to stay with us! She is also the photographer behind most of my professional photographs, and she is...

New Years Resolutions That DON’T Focus On Your Body

New Years resolutions always seem to revolve around body and aesthetics. I always see things like: get fit, eat healthier, lose x amount of pounds, transform my body, etc. Having fitness goals and goals to make changes to your physique is GREAT, don’t get me wrong. I think having those goals are awesome, no matter what time of year it is. Obviously, that is part of my business and career – I help people reach their fitness goals. Whether it’s...

Beginners Guide to Getting Fit

Getting “fit” is a very broad topic because fit is different for everyone. Everyone has different goals, different fitness levels, different starting points, and more. One persons goal may be specific such as increasing their squat. Another may be aesthetic goals such as getting ripped or growing muscle. Another person’s goal may be to love themselves more and work on their mental health. Maybe someone’s goal is to just make small changes such as walking more throughout the day or...

My Birth Plan

At first I said I was having no birth plan and just winging it like I do the rest of my life. While that is still true to some extent, I realized having a tentative plan can help. As we all know, childbirth is never convenient or expected. It can happen a month early, or it can happen 2 weeks later than expected. You can go in hoping for a natural birth and end up needing a c-section. You just never...

Week 27 & 28 Pregnancy Update

HOW FAR ALONG? 27 and 28 weeks pregnant! DUE DATE… February 26, 2018. HOWS Mama DOING? Good! Just bigger belly over all and feeling it. I definitely feel pregnant. The first thing people look at is my belly when I’m in public. It cracks me up and I love it. People have also started rubbing and touching it asking when I’m due, I oddly don’t mind that, though! Week 27: had a really bad case of round ligament pain one...
