I think I’m feeling every single emotion right now in anticipation of tomorrow. I feel ready and not ready at all-all at the same time. Time has sped up this week like non-other and I’ve had little time to process that I am going to be a mom. Unless Baby flips over night I am scheduled for a c-section tomorrow in the early afternoon. Thankful that everything is all set to go (thanks to my hubby for putting together the pack n’ play that was a pain in the ass 😂), our house is clean, laundry is done, and I even sterilized all my breast pump parts. Thank you all for your sweet messages, good vibes, advice, and prayers through this crazy time. I am so overwhelmed with the sweetness and support of my family, friends, and online community💕Now off to a final date night with my love. I plan to fill up on some really yummy food tonight cause I probably won’t be eating a whole lot tomorrow ❤️

This pregnancy journey has not been an easy one for me. We've dealt with a lot of complications and are far from any quick recovery. (Speaking of me of course but baby has been excellent and healthy as can be, thankfully.) no matter how bad I've been feeling, we've still had lots of good days! We're more than half way through this and can not wait to hold our baby Boy or see him take his first breath! Malika is excited to be a big sister to her little brother and asks me often when she will be able to hold him. Soon! At 24 weeks, 5days along, it's like my baby bump appeared out of nowhere! Starting to actually look pregnant! Im okay with that! #pregnancyjourney #hasnotbeeneasy #thankful #stillgoingstrong💪 #nothingwillstopus #strongDaddy #hubby❤️ #lotsoflove💕 #theyremyworld🌎 #supportivefamily #youandmethroughitall #bigsisterlove #MalikaandFrederick👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 #mykidsaremyworld #sébastien💕 #24weeks5days #babybump

#mommymonday My life has become a series of wanting to capture every moment with my toddler and never being able to because she’s very, very busy. The days are closing in on it being just her and I and I’m scared to death! This time around I’m not afraid of how MY life will change, I’m worried about how HERS will. I’m hoping for a smooth transition but bracing myself for growing pains, especially as we’ve entered this new “I only want mommy” phase. Every day I learn something new in this journey through motherhood and if there’s one thing that resists change it’s the bond with my little girl and I’m holding on tight to that! 💕 •

Last Pregnant Workout Done!!🤗
.
Knowing I won’t be able to workout again for a few weeks while I recover I decided to go for a harder hour long Booty day video and I’m so glad I did! Got my endorphins flowing and my lower body strengthened for labor!
.
I’m scheduled to start my induction tomorrow with a Foley balloon which will hopefully kick start labor naturally and then if not I’ll be admitted on Weds morning and induced with Pitocin 🙄. But either way I’m just days from meeting our baby girl and I can’t wait!
.
Slightly terrified for labor again but I know physically I’m in way better shape than I was with my first. Praying for a faster delivery and recovery🤞🏼Wish me luck! 🙈

Bump-date time! 16 weeks 👉🏼 22 weeks (and 4 days). .
🤸🏼‍♀️I have actually been killing my workouts lately and am feeling SO “normal”! .
🍎My nutrition could definitely be better, but I’m ravenous like 90% of the time so what can ya do 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’d say I’m at about 80% “healthy” and 20% “unhealthy”. I gave up sweets for lent (CEREAL DOESN’T COUNT 😂) so that’s helping lol
🤰🏼I’ve gained 10-12 pounds so far...I think. I’m not good at remembering to weigh myself to to log my weight because I’ve never done it before. .
🤺Babygirl is moving around like crazy now! My favorite thing to do when I settle down for the evening is to watch my belly and see her move. She’s approximately 10-12 inches long now!
🎶 She either loves or hates when Chris talks/whistles/sings because she almost always kicks and moves when he does! She’s either dancing with excitement or saying “SHUT UP SLEEPING” 😂
👖I officially cannot button any of my work pants anymore and have to wear a belly band 😂 I refuse to buy maternity pants/clothes until absolutely necessary so i will ride out the belly band for as long as possible!
.
.
But, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows over here. Pregnancy can really play some mind games y’all. I am frustrated that I don’t “look” pregnant, but just thick around the belly area. I am getting more cellulite on the dreaded thighs. I’ve noticed some veins on my thighs, and my face continues to breakout on the regular. My clothes don’t fit like they use to, and once again it frustrates me that I don’t look pregnant, just thick and bloated 😞 I tried to rock the cute bodycon “show off my bump” look and literally just looked like I ate a chipotle burrito 🤔
I am sharing this to be real with y’all. Not fishing for compliments or for any type of sympathy. I know that my job growing my baby girl is WAY more important than anything superficial. But that does not stop me from feeling insecure at times. I’m only human.
I am beyond proud of my body! And not a second goes by that I don’t think about my baby girl 💗

If you’re still reading, thank you, I love you and I might have a name to share with you soon 😁

Hi, my name is Julia. 🤗
.
Here’s a list of things that make my heart happy:
.
❣️Conversations with family and friends
❣️Eating good food
❣️Activities with my kids
❣️Being productive
❣️Affirmations
❣️Anything that improves my life
Aloha! Since having Zoe I’ve discovered a few essentials that I use daily and thought I’d share this of reality vs. those perfect lists you find on goggle (🙄). First - if your breastfeeding get yourself a breastfeeding support pillow! Posture is so important and I learnt this the hard way from being lazy. Now I use this pillow every feed at 2am to prevent bad back pain from poor breastfeeding hunching or slouching. The other essential is Bonds maternity singlets. SO comfy and SO practical. Grab a couple at least as you can layer on top. Well priced and made of cotton is perfect in the hot summer weather (summer + breastfeeding = oh my damn hot). Lavender Peace essential oil for some ZEN before I go to bed as I’m obsessed with this and pop a few drops on my pillow. Mini sudocream’s-perfect for your nappy bag or traveling instead of a big massive tub (friend gave me this tip!). Plus these $5 rings from Toys R Us- forget the expensive toys, Zoe loves these and they attach to anything. Simple toys,simple colours with different textures for her little hands to grab for self discovering. No need for bright lights and toys with sounds galore - let your bubs first discover the basics. Hope this is helpful. What is your top useful product? Thanks to my gorgeous friend Danielle for letting me borrow her pillow @dvz80 it’s SO handy having girlfriends around to ask for their recommendations ❤️ #firsttimemum #pregnancyjourney #mumessentials #4months #dontgoogle #essentials

Every morning you have 2 choices: continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them. • I wake up every morning ready to chase them! 🙌🏽

This little guy is my motivation everyday to stay as healthy as possible. Knocked out my workout this morning! 25 minutes of Strength 💪🏽
#HappyMonday!

Are you the center of your family? Mamas, do you notice that everyone’s mood revolves around yours. That your kids are happier when you are...that your partner is more at ease when you feel full...

We are powerful beings. Perhaps, the center of the universe in some way. In the way we bring life and how life seems to oscillate around us.

We forget that we too, the life giver, NEEDS to be filled. NEEDS love, care and attention. Otherwise we’re running off an empty rag.

We have evolved over millions of years, with plants. Plants that to this day, make up the majority of dry matter on the Earth (98%). Plants that we use in all areas of life, yet usually pay little to no attention to.

Learn about plants, about herbs, about flowers. Seek help from the natural world. Seek to be filled by the ones that ask nothing in return, except your good nature and care of earth.

Most of all, seek help. Seek it inside. Seek it outside.

And don’t forget, you are the UNIVERSE.

....because every picture tells a story... Welcome to ours!!! 📷: @katherinepimentelphoto
I still can’t believe 6 months ago he was in my belly 🤰🏼
.
.
I loved everything about being pregnant! I loved my growing belly, my emotions, my mindset, the journey, the fact that I was literally participating in creation. I felt bold, powerful and beautiful. It was a surreal, and amazing experience and I can see why women have more babies! 😍
.
.
Not everyone feels this way, sometimes it can be very challenging, tiring, exhausting and scary experience. Every pregnancy is different and everyone’s journey is different. It’s just amazing what happens in 9 months! All we wish for as Mumma’s is a happy, healthy baby 👶🏼 .
.
Then baby comes along and your whole world changes. You change. During your pregnancy you question, how will I cope with sleep deprivation, will I be a good mother, will I know what to do? The answer is, when your baby is born, so is a mother. She didn’t exist before then, yes there may or may not have been glimpses of her, but she doesn’t fully arrive until her baby does. Then the moment you see your baby - everything “makes sense ”. .
.
My point is if your an expecting mumma, you will know what to do, your baby will teach you, your instincts will teach you and the sleep deprivation and everything else is not only doable- you will be amazing . We are designed to not only cope with these challenges but thrive in them. You are strong, beautiful, brave, instinctual and capable. .
.
I hope your are loving this journey whether your expecting, a new mumma or a seasoned one! If your not loving it right now, it’s okay, don’t judge or criticize, it may just be a challenging day or phase - the best is yet to come 💛 .
.
Tag a mumma 💛
