- Currently 38 weeks pregnant
Have had quite a successful pregnancy– this one has gone by much faster (probably because I’ve been chasing my toddler)
Planning to have my daughter at the birth. We’ve prepared by having her watch birth videos and even listening to/watching the video of me pushing with her
This pregnancy I: continued strength training throughout- I feel it made a huge difference for me
I did start eating more poorly during February/March, so I did the Whole30 with my husband and daughter as a reset in April and felt much better
I got sick with a stomach bug around 34 weeks- I don’t wish that on anyone! So awful to be sick and that pregnant. I worried momentarily I’d accidentally push the baby out while puking.
I had a blessingway ceremony this past weekend. Surrounded by amazing midwives and birth workers who love me.
We: ate, had a bead ceremony, a fear-releasing ceremony, made an affirmation banner, and prayed over me
If you had a Blessingway, what did you do?
