Week 30

WEEK 30.

Mama mia, soon there!
I can’t believe how fast it goes now. In the start, it all were pretty slow. Now it’s like a ticking bomb.

Jake and I have done some shopping, some clothes for the first few months. And lots of others stuff.
The big question is the choice of a pram, car thingy, yadayada..

Anyone got any tips? Please share.

Got this beautiful necklace from Kristin. It’s a Rose Quartz. Perfect lenght for to be on my belly.

”Rose Quartz is a stone of the heart, a stone of unconditional love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace. It speaks directly to the heart chakra and heals what could be broken. It helps the user to feel a strong sense of self-worth, therefore being worth love.

It gives inner peace and helps in all matters pertaining to love in all its forms. Rose Quartz opens the heart to love”
The necklace is from Lite Kalabalik.

Done with the first washing.
The washing line was the cutest I’ve ever seen. Everything is so tiny.

I’m surely getting used to the lack of sleep, every night I wake up around 3am.
The back pain comes and goes. I don’t know why I havn’t done yoga at all. Yesterday I decided I’m gonna give myself 20min each morning and 20 min evenings. Can’t be this stiff anymore. 100% it will help my sore back too.

Pillows to stack under my knee and belly when sleeping helps.
Also I’m eating more bananas and trying to eat more nuts, it contains magnesium and that’s help to prevent cramps. Lately I’ve been waking up with cramps in my calves soon as I stretch out. ouuchh!

This is just tiny little things in all the beauty of becoming a mom. I’m a lucky one.

Another thing I would like to hight light is Världens barn right now. 15 000 children under the age of 5 years, dies every day.  I’ve started a donation since last week and I’m so happy for all the help you guys provided so far.

So far we rasied money to give 800 kids treatment for pneumonia. I hope many more of you would like to donate. Please it means a lot for many. Press here to make a donation.

It could be 5sek, 10sek, 50sek, 200sek – all amounts makes a huge difference. Thank you.

growing big

The bump happend over night, basically.
Welcome week 29 + 1 day today.

Wonder if I gained close to 10kg now? It says baby is around 1,3kg and 32 cm long now.

Every night I wake up just after 3am. Zero chance to go back to sleep until 6am.. if I’m lucky I get another hour sleep or my day starts then.

Last weekend we went to a friends wedding in France. Long days, lots of people. I got absolute exhausted by all the impressions, people, and being out and about. But tried my best to join in as much I could.
But on the Sunday I couldn’t do anything more then to rest. I stayed in bed all day.
Monday felt like a big hang over. I think I felt more tired due to the 35 degrees and a growing bump; A lot of pain in my ribs. Little bit better now.

Oh ! and  this morning I had my first dream about giving birth. Apparently I woke up and I felt that my water broke, me and Jake went to the hospital and the lady came out with the biggest of syringe saying:

-Spread your legs so I can give you this.
-Oh no I said and walk away. No chance you will do that. ( hate syringes ) so I decided to walk in the forrest till our baby came out.

Luckily that was a dream, cause there is no chance of syringes down in you know what?? I’ll die if soooo…

Happy Friday! I’m off work this weekend. It’s my birthday tomorrow!

by the way, Kristin shared her birth story yesterday so visit her. Like a little saga.

love m

 

 

Prego mama

These last months have passed by so quickly. Already in week 27, soon 28.
I’m getting ‘bigger’ each week that passes and in total I have gained 7kg.

Yesterday Jake and I visited the midwife and she measured my stomache,
then listened to the baby’s heart beats,  bless our little stinky it’s growing big.
Such a magical journey this.

Walking around with a ball of a stomach, crazy curiosity, sometimes  wonder how it’s even possible? but more than anything, an overwhelming excitement to meet this glorious little person you’re about to cherish for the rest of our lives. It’s a wild thought to think we all start from the same place

 

 

 

 

 

Feeling stronger than ever and I’m so excited for all there is to come.
Feels like our whole autumn is booked for different appointments, breast feeding courses, mama groups, blood tests and measuring this stomache!

Yesterday my stomache measured 25cm for my pelvic bone to the top of the bump?
Blood results was perfect, weight good… All good. Happy mama! I stopped drinking coffee as it gives me too much pain . No cravings from what I know.

There have been some of you who asked what clothes I prefer to wear now when I’m pregnant.
Here’s few tips from my shop, comfy is always nice.

LA Shirt comes in blue & black. One size.
So comfy, nice with jeans, leggings, boots whatever. A knitted sweater on top can be cozy.

10pm dress – comes in different colours. One size.

Varberg Duster & Pant. Perfect set.
Duster is one size and pants come in the sizes s/m & m/l.

This update is a payed update with FGL Store

Baby week 21

Muma & Papa is already baby brain washed.

-Baby brained-

Everywhere we go now there is either babies, pregnant woman, prams, parents.

If not IRL it’s on social media too, only ads and baby accounts pop up.
Baby brain~ a brand new chapter in our lives.

The bump is getting little bit bigger each week now. Mini stinks is kicking a lot every night by 9pm. Soon as I lay down to rest, Stinky starts. It’s an incredable feeling.

This week I recieved heaps of tips regarding what we need to think about and not think about.
I love my little network on IG cause you are all so loving and caring. Super helpful and always there.
I’ll make a list and put it here later this week.

I have few collabs that I need to finish first so I better get on ..

 

Enjoy your day.

Love & Support

Lets talk about the love and support social media can give.
The support we gotten regarding our baby when annoucing the news, has been unreal.

So many lovely messages and hello’s , the excitment to become a mom and what’s awaiting us. It’s kinda hard to take in but all the stories and updates makes it all extra special. So thank you all.

I love my little community of friends on instagram. Bless you!

I’ve been having a nice and easy first trimester of the pregnancy. Some nights extremely tired, some days very hungry. Some days feeling a bit low, I don’t really know why, maybe it’s the hormones.
I shared that feeling online the other day and got many responses accually. I’m not alone, it seems to be rather common.

I gained 1 kg since I first weighed myself. Exciting to see if it changed lately.

In week 22 already and I can tell the baby is growing alright. My black shorts I can’t close anymore.
Time goes by so quickly, it’s almost scary.

No cravings yet. Only more thirsty than usual.
Lately I have been thinking of all the things you need for the baby. Do you have any tips? What do we need, please share.

1. Pram

2. car thingy

3. baby bear or wrap,

4.  A prepped ‘hospital bag’

5. clothing wise?
