It’s been a while since I wrote a blog and honestly that’s been weighing on me. Feeling very nauseous and extremely tired took away all the extras I usually do in a day. I did make some changes and it’s been helping me a lot. So what did I change and how is my pregnant life going now?
Last time I wrote I explained that I was struggling with accepting that I should do things differently. I managed to accept that part now. Even when it doesn’t look like it my body is working very hard day and night. It means I’ll be tired a lot more and that’s ok. So I made some changes to be able to enjoy life and still work and keep up with my responsibilities.
What did I change? Well I work a few hours less, which means I get to rest and sleep a bit more. Much needed rest I might add. Another thing I have to admit is that my morning routine completely changed. A while ago I wrote a story about my relaxing morning routine. A routine that I loved, but since things changed so did my routine. Being that nauseas during the first 4 months kept me from doing yoga. I also stop drinking coffee trying to avoid too much caffeine. So soon I’ll write a pregnant morning routine. An updated version.
And what else changed? I take more time for myself and try to live as healthy as possible for my baby boy. We also had some medical check ups which is all standard in the Netherlands. Here we call the biggest check the ’20-week ultrasound’. All results were good and our little boy is growing perfectly. Having past that milestone and being halfway through my pregnancy we started shopping for baby gear.
For me that’s where the fun started and made it all the more real. We got our changing table and shopped for tiny baby onesies. We even found some clothes that looks like my fiancé’s clothes but then super tiny. It’s all so cute. I can’t wait to hold my baby and see how it all fits and just how he will be.
We have to wait a bit more than 18 weeks and then we get to meet our little boy. I guess your life is not changing when you have children, but as soon as you are expecting a child.
Let’s not forget that we’re also planning our wedding which takes place in 2 months. Even though we have less time to plan that Big Day I’m more focused on my Due Date. I can’t help it, the baby just takes over my mind. However before that day arrives we’ll be celebrating another big milestone. I’ll update you soon about all the wedding plans. Stay tuned!
