We’re going into the single digit countdown for #babynumber2
! 🙀9 weeks (give or take) till little man makes his arrival. Some days it feels like it’s taking forever, and other times it seems so soon. Definitely a mix of emotions - mostly excitement, and also nervous how it will be with #2under2
. Any advice for me in the homestretch? 🤷🏻♀️ #almost31weekspregnant #7monthspregnant #thirdtrimesterfeels
It’s kind of insane how someone that I haven’t officially met yet (besides those dreams over the past 8 years) can make me push harder, dream bigger, be stronger, slow down (this is a super tough one to get me to do 😂), and most importantly.... LOVE MYSELF EVEN MORE. This girl is teaching me all the things already. I can’t wait to see what we learn together when she’s on the outside. 🌍😍

boardwalk • bands • body weight • big belly ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
💪🏼 3-4 sets 16 reps (bands). 💦30-60 seconds cardio. 🚲Followed by 2 mile walk & 12 mile bike ride alongside my hubby’s marathon training run 🏃🏼 💥Improvising best I can amidst all the moving parts these days...growing belly, moving cities, house renovations, family vacation, visitors, etc. Very little has been constant so getting a little sweat sesh in when I can is always a bonus!! **VIDEO SPED UP #almost31weekspregnant
A tough (but much needed!) barre class tonight, followed by my favorite dinner (rice & sausage) and some blackberry @spindriftfresh
which I’ve been obsessed with lately! 😋 How many more weeks left until I can’t see my toes??? 😂
Almost 31 weeks, my cravings are getting VERY STRONG!
I’ve taken to reading the nutritional information on the backs of packaged foods to see which are safe for me to eat with my gd diet.
I came across this Cajun Trail Mix at my local Walmart that is very tasty, lower in carbs compared to some other snacks, and high in protein!
I put some in a little baggie to keep in my purse, should I ever be out when a craving hits!
Happy snacking, friends 😊

Ignore the hair, sometimes I’m just so shocked at how big little man is getting! And how much he’s changed me! I love that no matter where I go, I’m never alone now ❤️☺️ #almost31weekspregnant #9weekstogo
Hump Day-Bump Day✨
Today’s plan was to do some yoga outside but Mother Nature decided to laugh in my face & bring on the cold weather!
So instead of telling myself “forget it” i rolled out my mat & focused on me and babygirl inside the house.
Let’s be real for a second-I’ve been working on keeping my balance (not easy when pregnant) and taking care of me and babygirl on this journey. For being #30weekspregant
...I’ve surprised myself that I am still able to do this. With a growing belly and growing baby some things can seem impossible at times...As you can see-I needed to assist myself up the wall to get to where I wanted to be. It’s all about consistency + patience + self love..and with these anything is possible.
Yup I’ve officially started packing my Hospital bag! With the news of the process beginning and hitting 31 weeks Sunday I’ve begun getting my bag ready for his arrival! Hopefully he waits till January at less! What all did you pack for you Hospital bag? Only thing never on these list that I always take is my birthing ball which helped me in my first son labor of 19 hours of natural birth before being race into a c section a total of 20 hour labor. But man the birthing ball helped me through the whole 19 hours barely feeling them contractions. What’s your secret weapon? #hospitalbag #almost31weekspregnant #rainbowbaby #blessed #gettingready #boymom
Our babyshower was yesterday! We had so much fun, but I wasn't happy with my pictures. I look huge.
So I hit the gym hard today, weights, cardio on the elliptical and a reality check.
I need to watch the sugar... and home made bread my neighbors keep bringing us.
I eat really well, but maybe a little too much. And it wouldn't hurt me to walk more.
Being pregnant can be frustrating on a vanity level. I'm not one of those women who gains in the belly.
I also love food.
I keep reminding myself, this is temporary. I'm still so strong, so healthy, and so is my baby boy, and truthfully it's all I can ask for. But... it's hard. I'd love to be able to be a smaller version of myself. Anyway. My hormones are raging but I feel fortunate and a lot better after putting in four miles. Here's to a week of better choices and letting go of vain stuff that doesn't really matter when it comes to the health of my wee one. #bodypositivity #almost31weekspregnant #ilovecardio #pregnantpause #ilovefood #keepingitreal #imsopregnant #honestmotherhood
Same spot as last summer, different body 🤔. The next time I'm here I'll have a new baby boy 😍. Those are the things I remind myself in the third trimester. But really I can't wait to meet you, sweet boy. #almost31weekspregnant
