Are you teaching this week? Public schools around here are open Monday, Tuesday, and have a half-day Wednesday.
I’m coaching Monday and Wednesday with jury duty on Tuesday 😥
If you’re already on break, enjoy every moment! If you’re teaching, hang in there! #homestretch
I’ve been like outwardly loving my pregnancy but inwardly not enjoying my body’s changes. I mean I KNEW stretch marks would come but this was a lot more than I bargained for... I am in constant pain with the Braxton Hicks contractions (my vag literally feels like it’s falling off y’all), my lower back gives out on me at least once a week, my ankles are ALWAYS swollen and tender along with my knees, my belly button burns at times (so odd), and my boobs just grow and do what they want with the day 🙄
Pregnancy took a toll on my confidence. I didn’t post many photos rather less keep any of my solo photo sessions (sorry y’all) because I feel like an ugly whale. I don’t feel like this is my body. I’ve enjoyed bonding with Autumn but not so much embracing the bodily changes that come with pregnancy.
So today, with 10 days left I decided to embrace the blessing that God has given me. There are women who can’t have kids, can’t carry kids, or who are still hoping for kids and here I am carrying a blessing and hiding it because of ignorance 🤦🏽♀️
Cheers to the next 10 days of true smiling, true embracing and moments of enjoying each and every stretch mark that God has given me.
Hey low rider 👋🏼
33 weeks or 231 days of having this guy in utero. He is now the size of a 🍍 and weighs approx 2kgs.
Not sure if my ass is also pregnant or just attempting to counterbalance the ever increasing weight of my bump 🧐
Despite the gradual increase in aches and pains, it’s really starting to feel like things are finally moving a whole lot quicker, with only 7 weeks to go and on the 5 week countdown to Mat leave - not to mention Christmas 😬 #eeeep
With our antenatal class now under our belt and a final trip to Kmart for a nappy bin.. I guess we’re about as prepared as we’ll ever be 🤷🏼♀️
Hello 37 weeks!! Home stretch now until we meet our little love. Joints are definitely feeling the added weight and I feel like I’m in menopause (holy hot flashes), other than that - it’s been great. So grateful for this journey into motherhood 🤰🏻
