Last appointment before the big show... Baby is measuring at 8.3 lbs, mama is healthy as an ox, and no exciting news on the dialation front 😅 We all cheered when the Dr said "next appointment will be postpartum!"
Don’t give up‼️ .
#36weeks in this video workout and my ability to keep up with my workouts, strength and energy levels are reducing as I am approaching full term. I have stopped the 20 minutes of light to moderate intensity indoor cycling I was doing as my cardio and am now just continuing with walks with Marty (20-40 minutes, 4-6 times a week) depending on how I feel. And strength training circuits (like this one), 2-3 times a week for 10-20 minutes.
It’s frustrating for me at times because I am always on the go and like to keep moving and stay active. With the extra weight and pressure of the baby and having this “belly”, I find it getting in the way (physically and mentally) of making me feel like myself. I mean how can you feel like yourself when it’s “work” just to put your socks and shoes on‼️🤣
But I have to remember having this body and carrying this REAL human inside of me is only short term, but truly an amazing thing‼️ I may not be as “fit” and my workouts may not be as intense as some moms to be (who are killing it BTW!), but I am doing what I can, trying my best to make myself feel as good as I can be. .
So all of the soon to be mommy’s out there who are feeling frustrated, tired, and just sick of being pregnant in their #thirdtrimester, keep it up and hang in there‼️ Think about all the hard work you have put in to be the best you can be for your baby and YOU‼️👊
recebo mtas msgs de como ta sendo dar conta do theo, da casa e de mim ao mesmo tempo. cuidar da casa é muito difícil nessa fase pq sobra mto pouco tempo! qdo não tem ngm comigo, quem mais me ajuda na limpeza é o CIF, além de ser bom, é prático, tudo q a gente precisa! ele tem uma linha q salva em qualquer ambiente de casa! 😅 uma coisa q é fato é que quando viramos mães, desenvolvemos várias habilidades pra dar conta de tudo e uma delas é fazer as coisas com uma mão só! quem tá nessa tbm? 😂🙅🏽♀️ #vidademae#osmelhoreslimpadoresdomercado#ciflimpadores#ad
When you’re #pregnant, everyone always focuses on getting ready for the #baby and the actual delivery itself. When I had my first baby, I was completely unprepared for what I was going to go through in the days and weeks following the #birth. I mean, your body just went through a major thing! The second time around I was way more prepared and as a result, the #postpartum period went significantly better for me. Here are some ideas for a DIY postpartum basket (PS - this is a great #babyshower gift!)
1. Tylenol rapid release gel caps (have some of these on hand for the pain. I love the gel caps for quick relief! Thanks @familyrated for sending us this Tylenol
TIP! You can actually alternate with ibuprofen as well.
2. Earth Mama perineal balm and spray - I can’t say enough good things about these! I ended up going through two bottles of each.
3. Earth mama postpartum bath herbs / sitz bath
4. Depends (dignity goes out the door when you have baby, just wear the diaper #mama)!
5. Overnight Always Pads
6. Tucks Pads
7. Tena mesh panties - I found these at Shoppers Home Healthcare
8. Peri bottle - my hospital gave me this, but ask for an extra one so you have one in all of your bathrooms
9. Lansinoh nursing pads and 2-in-1 hot cold breast therapy
10. Lactation cookies! You can find tons of recipes online, but I love the Booby Boons ones from @storkanddove . If you’re local to London, also check out @momnomslondon!
Not pictured here, but good to have on hand for that first week:
12. Freezer meals!
13. Dark sheets
14. Waterproof mattress protector
15. Compression leggings
16. Black pyjamas
17. Heating pad
18. Stool softener
If you haven’t done so already, check out my posts on must haves for pregnancy, breastfeeding and a packing list for the hospital.
What about YOU? What what a postpartum must have for you?

A espera da Leticia 🎀💗
This is what #38weekspregnant and #31yearsold (tommorow) looks like 😋. Henry wanted to join the photo shoot, which I'm never opposed to. ********************************************
I haven't had any swelling this pregnancy 👌!?! How 🙊? I guess I'm lucky. That and since dehydration was a problem during labor and after giving birth to Henry I've been taking hydration very seriously. Here's what I've been doing:
-16-32 oz of lemon water+honey immediately after waking up
-16oz celery juice or several cups of cut up watermelon
-32oz of smoothie (plant based, low fat, low protein)
-16-32oz lemon water+honey following nap time
-sometimes a smoothie, sometimes cut up fruit
-drinking several glasses of water throughout the day
No joke, I've been drinking 12-16 (8oz cups) of liquid or I feel thirsty. Also, I'm eating at least six servings of raw fruit daily and trying to eat several of my veggies raw each day too (because our bodies absorb the high water content in raw fruit and veggies much better than drinking a glass of water). It takes a lot to liquid to carry a baby around...am I camel?
The #nesting is real! With my due date approaching quickly, the need to feel ready is stronger than ever! Everything is coming together and we are getting even more excited about meeting our little man! 💕👶🏼
