In the third trimester it feels like there is suddenly so much to do! Finally the arrival of your baby is almost here. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed and a bit stressed so I created this checklist during my first pregnancy to evenly distribute all the tasks I wanted to get done before baby’s arrived. I then added a few more things to this checklist for my second pregnancy because I realised how much I would appreciate being super prepared for when entering the ‘newborn phase’ again. This to-do-list is a mixture of practical, fun, health and

Modifications to Make to Exercise When Pregnant

Recently I attended a fantastic course on exercise during pregnancy and the post partum period. I learnt so much and had what I already knew reaffirmed by an expert in the field (women’s health physiotherapist Taryn Watson from FitRight). I thought I would write up a little summary of the key modifications you should make to exercise during pregnancy. This is a very brief explanation of the changes you should make to your workouts. If you would like to know more detail such as why you should be avoiding certain things, I recommend you follow some

I can’t believe I’m pregnant with baby number two! I feel so incredibly grateful and thankful every single day for the privilege of having another precious miracle grow inside of me. In this blog post you will find a little summary of the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy.

How I found out I was pregnant

In February 2018 we decided to start trying for another baby. I’d always hoped to have my children around two years apart since that is the age gap I have with my 2 sisters and I love

Hi everyone!

It’s less than three weeks until my due date! Eek very exciting times! I can’t wait to hold my baby. I can’t wait to dress my baby in all the cute tiny clothes I have for it! I can’t wait to find out if it’s a boy or a girl. I can’t wait to go for walks with the pram. And I can’t wait to not be pregnant anymore. But first, I have to get through labour. After reading extensively about all the

My Second Trimester of Pregnancy

Well, this week is the fourth week of my third trimester! Exciting times! So, I thought I would write a reflection of my experience going through my second trimester of pregnancy, that is, weeks 13 to 27 – the longest trimester of the three. Some changes and occurrences were expected and some were not! Pregnancy really is so different for every single woman and every single baby.

I threw up a few times in the early weeks of my second trimester. It was

Preparing for a Healthy Conception

 

Hello everyone! Sorry that it’s been so many weeks since I last wrote a post! To be honest, I’ve been a little unmotivated recently.

I have been quite tired, even though I’m in my second trimester, which I thought was when you are supposed to have great energy levels!? I guess everyone’s different. The heat has really been taking it out of me, too. I never realised being pregnant makes you so hot all the time! (Note to self: Next time, try not to be pregnant over summer!)

Also, when
