Hudson Samantha Ann Leete
samanthaannleete Tonight is our last #hypnobabies birthing class!
Preparing to be a first time mom (or parent) can bring out a lot of fears.... relationships, schedules, finances, etc...and let's not forget the big question overhanging it all - AM I GOING TO BE A GOOD MOM?? Finding out I was pregnant came as a surprise so I hadn't prepared at all and felt like I knew nothing about giving birth. One thing I'm thankful @kct__ and I have been on the same page with from the beginning is feeling really calm and confident about the birthing process.
Despite how birth is most often portrayed in media and talked about by many, we both believe that giving birth is a natural experience that women's body's were made to do and have been doing forever. And it can and should be positive!
After lots of researching and discussion we decided to choose @the_birth_center for my prenatal care and birthing.
Since I plan on having a natural birth, we've been taking a #hypnobabies class from @northernutahdoulas to prepare and we're so glad we chose this class and birth center and have learned so much!
I am so excited and thankful that there are options where our wishes will be respected, for the knowledge we've learned, and that I'll have these skills to help the birthing of #BabyTorgy be a positive, loving experience for us and our loved ones.

P.S. Got this exercise/birth ball, yoga mat, and @trimr water bottle from @bodybuildingcom. All pregnancy must haves!!

samanthaannleete • • • 29 WEEKS • • •
How far along: 29 weeks (contrary to what everyone thinks when they see me, no I'm not a couple of weeks away from popping and no it's not twins )
Sex of the baby: Sill waiting to be surprised! I wasn't sure if my OCD would kick in and I would have to know but it hasn't and I'm actually so excited to find out when Baby Torgy is born
Total weight gain: Between 20-25 lbs
Maternity clothes: Heck yes! I've only bought a few essentials but the comfort factor is totally worth it. Leggings and dresses are my jam
Stretch marks: Yes... The one place I never imagined getting them - more on this later
Movement: Still tons! I can tell the baby doesn't have as much room to move around because it's mostly changed from quick kicks and punches to pushes. Love being able to feel Baby so even when I'm not feeling well I know baby is growing big and strong
Cravings: Still haven't really been having cravings, more just aversions but I did crave orange juice the other morning
Nausea: Still feeling sick more than expected but hasn't helped the last couple weeks I had strep and then a cold
Innie or outie: Not totally sure...it's mostly flat but the top sticks out so looks like an outie... The skin is super stretched and thin though and I have a ring around my belly button that looks like a bruise
Moody: Nope (thank goodness)! Biggest mood change has just come from not feeling very well
Looking forward to: Finishing getting the necessities...I've definitely been going through the "nesting" phase as of the last couple weeks and am crossing things off the list of what we will need! We are waiting on getting some things since chances are we will be moving into our new home before the baby comes but getting the things we will need right away!

Most days I still have that feeling of "holy cow I'm really pregnant" and everyday I can't help but think how amazing our bodies are and how blessed @kct__ and I are. 🏼 #BabyTorgy

Happy #TeammateTuesday! Today's #TEAMBodybuildingcom Athlete shout outs go to Rachael Labender @ifbbprorachaellabender and Abel Albonetti @abelbodygym!

Rachael Labender
@ifbbprorachaellabender Rachael has always been an active person and in 2010, she took things to the next level by entering first bikini show. She didn’t expect to place, but she dominated. Rachael became an IFBB pro at her first national bikini competition, only competing once regionally a few days prior. Since then, the highs and lows of her fitness journey have helped Rachael learn who she is and what she stands for. To Rachael, having a pro card is a symbol that ordinary people can become extraordinary. She has become a nutritionist and personal trainer, and her greatest passion is in helping others become their best selves. “If I can do it,” she says, “They can surely do it, too.” Abel Albonetti
@abelbodygym Abel always loved sports when he was growing up, but as a home-schooled kid his options were pretty limited — so he hit the gym instead. What was a hobby has transformed into a full-time career. Abel earned his personal training degree in 2009 and now hopes to inspire others through his work as a Bodybuilding.com and @rspnutrition athlete. He insists anyone can get fit: It’s all about showing up and doing the work every single time you hit the gym.

samanthaannleete Thanks to these two beauties @sarinasueleete @lunanovelo and our mamas for throwing #BabyTorgy a shower yesterday! It was so much fun and owning diapers definitely makes this feel real (if my belly doesn't already lol). There are so many products out there for baby it's overwhelming! I'd love to hear what your favorites and can't live withouts are! 🏼#26weeks 3mon
  •   sheendamean Congrats Sam, I miss your face!!! 3mon
  •   nkwahl Congrats on baby! I've been slacking on social medial lately and had no clue you were expecting. How exciting!! I'm only about 6 weeks behind you with baby #3. I will be following your journey! 3mon
  •   sarahxsweetpea How cute! You keeping the gender a surprise? :) 3mon
  •   life.with.arlees Happy for you! 3mon
  •   mrs_brokaw Suppositories to help with constipation (if it gets really bad you'll be thankful you had these handy) when you don't need/can't take baby right to the pediatrician. Ora gel. Frozen peach slices to naw on when baby starts teething. Lots of whipes, burp blankets (so much spit up and drool), and bibs. Extra blankets extra onesies (for poop explosions). Travel size sun screen. Extra socks (you'll be losing them left and right on the go). And KEEP THE BOOGER SUCKER YOU GET FROM THE HOSPITAL. They're a God sent and you'll never find any brand on earth that works better. Those are just a few things that'll come handy! Congrats! @samanthaannleete 3mon
  •   smilelivelifenow Look up "that baby guy" and he has the best guides for what you need from the best new products! I would suggest trying cloth diapering - super easy now, baby wearing, buying a cot next to the bed, and breast feeding is hard in the first weeks but it DOES get a lot easier! No matter what advice you receive- do it your way! Congrats! @samanthaannleete 3mon
  •   agilelifefitness @samanthaannleete boba wrap, white noise machine, swaddlers or pods, app on phone to track feedings and diapers. 3mon
  •   jamieeasonmiddleton You look beautiful!! My tip, don't buy too much! You'll end up with so much more than you will ever need or use. Don't take tags off of things and save receipts. My favorite thing was the rock n play because August couldn't turn over and he was sitting slightly up when he would sleep. It's super light weight and we could move it from room to room. He slept in it until he grew out of it at 6 months. 3mon

  •   samanthaannleete @lindsey.mintz my motto is it never hurts to try! But I also would only do it if Bodybuilding.com and BodySpace are truly something you believe in, are passionate, and match what you stand for. And if you did try this year and things didn't work out you could stay active on BodySpace and go for it again next year 3mon
  •   lindsey.mintz Thank you @samanthaannleete. I am passionate and I love the company and what they stand for. I've also been blessed to have been chosen as a transformation story a few years back for BB.com. I was concerned about another social media outlet but I appreciate your response and maybe I can build up for next year and meet ppl along the way :) thanks! 3mon
  •   questfortress Do you feel like it's doable while working several part time jobs?! I've waited all year for this but now I realize my career might be more important..?! What's your opinion? I need a push that gets me moving to compete but I also need a more stable career & income? Thanks gorgeous! 🏼🏼 3mon

samanthaannleete #fbf Shooting the cover for @strongfitnessmag! I'll be taking over their IG all day tomorrow so make sure you're following them to get a behind the scenes look at my day!

I found out I was pregnant just a couple days before this shoot. I was toward the end of my first trimester and it came as such a big surprise...I had been trying to tighten up for the shoot but instead my body was doing the opposite and I was gaining weight. I was dead tired and feeling sick and so confused. Lol all makes sense now! I was going through so many emotions and called Strong to let them know and they were so sweet and still excited about featuring me on the cover.
It will be such a cool memory to show our little one, one day and tell them they are on the cover too!! #mystrongmoment #fitpregnancy #AthLeete #babytorgy

samanthaannleete My heart is so full of love! ️ 8 years ago this handsome man and I shared our first kiss on my birthday...and today there is no better birthday present than calling him my hubby and to share creating this little miracle in my belly with such an amazing man.
Thank you so much to everyone for the birthday wishes and congratulations on our little one to be. We are so excited and can't believe I'm already #21weeks!

I apologize for the social slow down the last few weeks, I've been really sick and between juggling moving back to UT, job changes, and adjusting to everything - any spare time I've had I've been spending with loved ones and family during this special time. I'm still keeping hopes that feeling better will come soon and am excited to share this experience with you all! #babytorgy

samanthaannleete Just because you're pressed for time doesn't mean you can't get in an awesome workout. 🏼 I've shared one of my favorite routines with @strongfitnessmag. It's quick but will get your heart going and leave your shoulders, glutes and abs on fire! Best part...it can be done anywhere so you can skip the travel time to the gym if you're really in a time crunch.
