On top of everything, this bundle of joy is sick 😩🤧
Wednesday (in Germany #bergfest
& in Sweden #lillördag
😀) and no meetings! And the best news today: my Katatonia shirt still fits! 😅👏
Do you know a Mumma with a little Easter baby on the way? Why not surprise her with a sweet pregnancy keepsake 💗
Although I’m getting fed up with this furlough at least we get to spend more time with this cutie. 7 months today! Can’t believe it 😍. Also throwing in her 6 month photos since we were all deathly ill right before Christmas thanks to daycare 😉
This is the ‘been on the couch for two days’ sorta feeling. Sometimes I joke and say that pregnancy needs to come with a warning manual. There is so much that you don’t get told being pregnant for the first time. You get all the happy stories, the positive journeys, the life changing experience of having a child etc. Never the crap days during pregnancy, the pain, the emotional journey it is, the worry you feel and baby isn’t even here yet or even all the different appointments you have to go too. For me I ended up in emergency Monday night as they wanted to check baby & I out, turns out I suffer from severe ligament pain. I’ve never felt anything so horrendous in my life. It was paralysing. Now I have to rest to get better so I don’t get another flare up soon or do anything to hurt us. Though I do know one thing for sure, I would do anything for my baby! The love is so unreal and I haven’t even met bub yet!
Daddy was right!! My little mini is going to be a Princess 👑
Mommy and daddy are so overjoyed, I cannot wait to meet you my baby girl 💗
Baby Girl Fletcher, due June 8th, 2019 🎀 #baby #junebaby
here’s my #18weekspregnant
bumpdate for you all 😊
this week baby boy is as big as an artichoke, which I think is so frickin’ GINORMOUS, I cant fathom it
I can feel baby moving in there which is soooooo cool, can’t wait til Caleb gets to feel too
p.s. this mirror is totally in a Fry’s bathroom, but I saw my bump and couldn’t resist taking a quick pic 🤷♀️
I’m trying hard to soak up every last bit of magic in this stage of my life.
This stage where my days are filled with tickle fights, and running around the house, and being exhausted beyond belief.
These days, where sometimes sidewalk chalk murals take priority over doing dishes.
And I’ve read the same book a thousand times, and watched coco more than any person ever should...but it’s magic. All of it.
The laughter, the learning, the long nights, the love.
The tantrums, the tears, the terrible messes.
All of it. Magic.
All of it. Worth it.
So for now, I’m soaking it all in. Paying attention to every little detail. Happily wiping peanut butter smudges off the walls and kissing all of the bumps and bruises.
Because he won’t be this little forever, and it won’t be just us three for much longer.
I love this season of life. All of it. And I’m so excited for what the next chapter holds too.
Yawns: expectation vs reality😮
We couldn’t be more excited to be grandmas again and so soon after our first! So happy for these two ❤️ and can’t wait to meet baby Teifke!! #junebaby @kwheelsup
I can’t believe I’m already halfway through my pregnancy 🤰time goes by way too fast! 😊
Moonstone sphere and some crystal balls. Magic is essentially the higher understanding of nature ✨🌙

Hitting the 20 weeks pregnancy. HALF WAY THERE!! I definitely love being pregnant and I’m loving the feeling of quickening!!
Today i am 7 months! My bottom two teeth are coming in hot, I am super close to crawling and am a huge people person! Always smiling and always happy ☺️
If you’re anything like me you spend a lot of the day trying not to beat yourself up for things. Thoughts like- you’re not doing enough, you’re not doing it well enough, you'll never be as good as this person etc. run rampant in my head if I let them.
But in this moment, right now, today I’m so proud of myself!! I just finished my first 24 hour fast and completed a 20 minute workout and I have to say, it’s feels great! The workout, the fasting, the DOING WHAT I SAID I WOULD DO. Keeping a promise i made to myself. Setting a goal for myself and achieving it. It feels so good. We all need to give ourselves more opportunities to make yourselves proud. .
And I was actually pretty surprised at how much easier it was then I built it up to be in my head (isnt that often the case?!) That's just another reason to do things like this is because it reminds us how much stronger we are then we think. We don’t give ourselves enough credit for things. We underestimate ourselves all the time. .
Right now- pick something u want to achieve in the next 24 hours. Not for a week or month, just a 24 hour goal. Maybe your goal is just to: take 3 walks today, drink a gallon of water, turn off the TV and get in bed at 9:30, not snack after dinner, not have any sugar just for today, etc. whatever you want it to be. .
Set the goal and then here is a really important part- TELL SOMEONE! I have to be honest, I don’t know if I would’ve stuck this out if I hadn’t told my team and shared about it on social media. You get stronger in your commitment when you share it with others. Duh – why do you think I became a coach? cause i KNEW if i called myself a coach in front of my peers,I'd HAVE to do it and stick to it. .
So pick something you can do in the next 24 hours and then when you achieve it, let the momentum from achieving it push you to your next 24 hour goal. and hour by hour, day by day, you will string together weeks of wins at a time and youre going to feel so good. .
Who wants to do a 24 hour fast with me next time?
20 weeks, baby girl .
We are half way there... .
I now can feel her hiccup and kick and can distinguish the two .
It’s so strange..I wonder what she will look like, what she will like, who she will become... .
So many questions... . 🤔
But one thing that I do know is, she will be loved, she will grow up to be taught to love herself, that she is MORE than a pretty face but that she is smart... .
And that she will learn to love others, be empathetic, and fight for equality, fight for those who can’t fight for themselves and fight the injustices of this world .
Half way there, little one .
And we can’t wait to learn what you will bring to this world .
