through another lens

Hi October!

Autumn is certainly here. I’m so grateful. Love all the colours and how it smell outside. Crispy mornings are the best ones.

This picture is from a very sunny morning, just before my 20 min yoga. Found a really good 20 min class on youtube. For morning and night.

One night I treated myself to a long bath. Jake both cooked and made me this warm bath after a really long day at FGL Store. My back were so sore, I could barely move. So this peppermint bath – truly made my day! Thanks hun!

And then I fell in love with this washing line. How cute.

I’m usually a light sleeper but now during my pregnancy, I’m like hawk – I hear everything. Some nights Jake snore a bit toooooo much. I go crazy!

& there was week 30.
Can’t tell if I’m wearing pants ,can you? Belly is big now.
When I do my yoga, it’s a funny feeling when my belly touches my legs, hello there bump!

An old favourite of mine: Chia pudding with heaps of cardamom:

2 cups of Almond milk or coconut milk
6 tablespoons of Chia seeds
1 table spoon of oats
+ Lots of grinded cardamom, it’s best if you do it yourself so you get bits and pieces, don’t grind to much. Soak for 10min in the fridge.

I use frozen berries and some natural yoghurt with my chia pudding.
Top it with banana granola, nuts seeds -whatever you want. Such a great meal. Easy to prep and have ready in the fridge to for a few days.

Such a pleasure to go to the hair dresser . This is before.

this is after.  always happy with the result, Thanks Ida ! & thanks Schwarzkopfprosweden.

 

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.
