  • It’s like I’m not capable of walking past a reflective surface without taking a bump shot.🤰🏼School bathroom mirrors, car windows, it’s all fair game 😂
.
It still doesn’t feel real that there’s a little human hanging out inside of me all day long. I’m more out of breath these days, and my belly is getting achey, but more than anything, I’m thankful. 🙏
.
There were so many points when it felt like we’d never get here. If you are in the thick of infertility or pregnancy loss, my heart is with you! ❤️

  • Hi Ka-uties 🤗 I’m almost done blowing up your feed with our #maternityshoot pics 😬🥰 Thanks to all those who messaged me checking up on me, ILY guys so much 🥺🙏🏼 I have another doctors appointment tomorrow & I will find out more, but the antibiotics have helped. I’ve been trying to rest more, I actually spent the day working from bed today. I got a little antsy to get up and do something but I didn’t because I know my body and babygirl need rest. Now I’m going to start on our baby registry...what are some baby item must haves? 👶🏼💗#thirdtrimester

  • We’ve hit 30 weeks over here and I’m shocked 😱. Baby boy or baby girl will be here in less than 10 weeks. .
Let’s just say I am no where close to 75% ready or prepared, even if it is our 4th. I know the baby will be fine and taken care of regardless of it all. But, it still feels like I should feel more prepared. I know if we have onesies and diapers, we’re good.
.
But, help this mama out. If it was you what would you have to have ready before baby comes?

  • We made it to the third trimester and our little guy is getting bigger. James says he looks more like him, I’m just happy he has my cute nose. And of course he loves to cover his face and kick me all day 🤣 #thirdtrimester #sneakpeek #babyboy #homestretch

  • Y’all want to hear some BIZARRE pregnancy dreams this morning? 🤣 Brace yourself 🤣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The other night, I dreamed that while I was sleeping a raccoon baby climbed up into my vagina and somehow ended up in my womb WITH MY BABY. I dreamed that the raccoon was trying to get out, but couldn’t find the “door” so it was just scratching around and bumping around in there. I took myself to the Dream ER and literally wrote “need an ultrasound to see if the baby raccoon needs to be surgically removed or if it’s okay to leave in until birth.” 🙈 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
BIHHH WHAT?!?! Obviously get that WILD ANIMAL out of your body immediately?! 🤣⁣
⁣⁣
So then last night I dream that my husband was somehow able to breastfeed our children and that he opted to pump for our babies {both Naomi and our newborn son} and it was WEIRD. He’s like sitting in this nicely lit room with an electric pump attached to his little nipples and legit has like 5 ounces out of each 🤣🤣🤣 He poured it for Naomi into a sippy cup and she’s like, “Daddy made?” 🤣 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
AND INSTEAD OF BEING LIKE “what in the actual f* am I witnessing right now” I GOT MAD that I wouldn’t ever be able to tell the world or make a Facebook post about the fact that he was the one breastfeeding our kids because he was embarrassed and didn’t want anyone to know. 🙈😩🤣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s better than the dream I had when I was pregnant with Naomi that she would reach out of my stomach to touch other babies, but then turn into an octopus and try to eat them 😩🤣 I was constantly in my dream saying, “Stop trying to eat the other baby, baby. That’s not nice.” ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
NOT NICE?! It’s another reason for emergency SURGERY, ma’am. 🤣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I cannot 🤣 These hormones need to slow down. #32WeeksPregnant

  • 🌀 What will happen to my relationship, friendships and community after I have a baby? 🌀 How do I accept and celebrate the changes that are happening to my body? 🌀 How do I work with the fears I have of birth and motherhood? 🌀 How can I find a form of self-care that I can do even when I’m sleep-deprived and covered in breastmilk? 🌀 What does an empowered birth look like for me? 🌀 How do I want to be as a mother?

These are the topics we dive into and juicy conversations we have during Sacred Pregnancy Retreats.

They’re the big ones - maybe the most important ones - but they’re also the conversations we tend not to have with our care providers, and they’re the conversations we’re not even sure how to begin with our loved ones.

Join me and an intimate group of likeminded mothers-to-be on March 27-29 for the deepest kind of birth preparation you can do.

See the link in my profile for details and to register, or DM me with any questions you may have.

  • Taking it easy today & watching Madagascar with my boy. My very pregnant body did not appreciate all the cleaning I was trying to get done yesterday. Haha. Shoutout to my husband who scrubbed down the tub & shower for me last evening - it’s pretty much mission impossible at this point. 🤰🏻#livinglarge .
.
P.s. Peep the little pink car seat all ready to go 🥰

  • Made To Mother [SHOPPING GIVEAWAY]
.
Moherhood.
This wasn’t something I felt compelled to at a young age.
You hear of women’s stories knowing they were put on this earth to mother.
I didn’t feel like that.
And to be completely honest, there were many adulthood years where I said I would NEVER become a mother.
And I meant it.
But I grew and evolved.
I healed, a lot.
And when the 30’s hit I felt my uterus twitch every time I saw a baby.
But I still didn’t feel ready.
But that’s when magic happens right?
When we are least expecting it.
I don’t think I felt like I was made to mother until I felt those kicks.
When I listened to that heart beat for the first time.
And when all of a sudden I realized my whole life was about to change forever and I was excited, not scared.
.
And my definition will likely change once I hear his first cry, giggle and words.
.
When did you first realize you were made to mother?
.
One lucky babe who answers this question will win a $75 gift card to shop this shirt and more at @baobeimaternity ❤️.
Ends Sunday at 6pm PST.

  • Our Sedona #babymoon over President’s Day / Valentine’s Day weekend was magical! Highly recommend Sedona for a relaxing, hiking, nature, amazing views + food, good energy kinda trip!
.
We stayed at @amararesort and loved it, had delicious dinners at @saltrockkitchen and @cress_on_oak_creek and hiked Little Horse Trail (2+ hours), Sugarloaf/Teapot Trail (2+ hours) and Bell Rock (1+ hours). All easy / moderate, with little incline and all trails were epic.
.
Have you been Sedona? What did you love? It’s a truly such a magical place. #6monthspregnant #thirdtrimester #FitVistaHikes #babymoon #👶🏼🌙

  • About last night. Fregola with buttery, garlicky clams and the biggest hunk of bread we could find to finish it all off. I haven’t craved any alcohol this pregnancy, but I was DEFINITELY missing a nice chilled glass of young, unoaked, Italian white wine with this one. 😭😭 #TwoAndAHalfMoreMonths #DinnerAtHome

  • This is 32 weeks. This is the third trimester. This is bliss & heaven, yet exhausting. This is weird belly buttons, “lightening cervix”, Braxton Hicks, out of breath, increasing lbs and rib pain. But more than that it’s blessing, it’s excitement, it’s an unimaginable love, it’s constantly holding a hand on your belly to feel the kicks & movement. This is 32 weeks. This is the third trimester. This is pregnancy. A miracle from above 🙏🏻💗 #pregnantbelly #32weekspregnant #pregnancydiary

  • I never anticipated how HARD it would be to stay active during pregnancy 🤰🏼 .
Between the exhaustion, body aches, reduced range of motion, and not really knowing what exercises were safe and effective, I was at a loss.
.
I pretty much have stuck to the cardio machines for the whole second trimester, which is not my normal MO. I like lifting, HIIT workouts, and pretty much anything that ISN’T the treadmill.
.
Going into my third trimester, I took a step back from work to focus on my pregnancy and getting the house ready for the little man.
.
So I took the opportunity to have a consultation at #EaglePhysicalTherapy here in town to discuss my fitness goals and have a plan custom built for me 📝
.
At this point, those goals are to prepare my body as much as possible for labor and delivery, set myself up for quicker post-partum recovery, and get back in the saddle as soon as possible as strong as possible.
.
Giving birth is one of the most amazing things a woman’s body can do, and I want to set myself up for success as much as possible to hopefully have a safe, quick delivery, and be as strong as I can for my baby and myself once he’s here.
.
Working with a professional takes the weight off my shoulders of having to study, build a plan, and guess what is best. He evaluated my current fitness and found my weak points, and built a program for me around them and my goals. It took the guess work out of of working out. I was also shown how to perform the exercises correctly in order to get the most out of them and be prevent injury.
.
Even though we’re in the home stretch I’m going to make the most of these last 3 months to prepare for what will be one of the greatest physical feats my body will ever perform.
.
This is for me, and for my baby.
.
I know I’m going to keep getting bigger. Even though my goals have always been to be stronger, healthier, etc, I could never truly escape the more vain aspects of working out to LOOK better. But now, my goals with exercise have never been more concrete and purposeful, and how I look has nothing to do with it 💪🏼

  • Posted 5 days late but Week 30 has by far been the toughest! 
exhaustion and far too much stress, caused me to have a pretty big breakdown, luckily have some pretty strong women in my life to drag me back to sanity 💕
yesterday we ended up in an emergency midwife appointment with a bonus trip to the hospital to get urgent bloods done to check for cholestasis.
The bloods say I’m just within the safe zone but still need more tests done to check as we could have just caught it super early, after another itchy and restless night I’m not feeling too hopeful 
I am exhausted mentally and physically but can’t help feeling very grateful for the midwives and the other strong supportive women in my life keeping me from going insane 🌼

  • Be Adaptable!⠀
⠀
Todays tip is to be ADAPTABLE. It increases your chances of succeeding, as you will find yourself trying out different things. There will be times when we experience unexpected unpleasant situations in life. Being adaptable will ensure you stay afloat! ⠀
⠀
Nobody likes change, that’s been proven but you need to be willing to change because life as we know it will never stay the same. ⠀
⠀
When you feel yourself resisting, try and ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?”. Since practicing this in my own life, the only thing that has come from it is success. Success is the BIGGEST benefit of being adaptable. Not so bad, right?

  • Taking a photo with a 2-year-old be like... I’m going to miss my one-on-one mornings with Lewis! With one in school full time and another in half day preschool, I’ve really treasured getting to spend my mornings with this little guy. Soon our mornings will include a little baby girl to feed and snuggle and love, so double the fun, right?

So crazy how seasons and stages with kids seem to last forever while you’re in the midst of them, but when they’re over you can’t believe how quickly it went by (except potty training. That always seems eternal and horrible, even in retrospect). Lewis, you’re going to make the best big brother! (But I’m still not going to trust you alone with the baby 😂) P.S. he was shouting, “To Infinity...and beyond!” when we were taking this 🚀

  • This little one is in such a mommy phase right now. He definitely has become a lot more aware of the baby growing in my belly and I’m wondering if that’s why. Honestly, I’m not complaining though. Love every second of my time spent with this boy. Mamas- did your littles get extra clingy while you were pregnant??

  • Nearly 31 Weeks Pregnant!

My baseline weight is obese but I tend to lose weight during pregnancy. This isn’t due to strong willpower and control on diet. It’s because I have very little appetite and definitely have an aversion to fattier and super sweet foods. Since I am starting off with a higher BMI, this is totally OKAY! My real problem is post-partum weight gain due to stress eating. Every time Maya would cry, I would stuff bakarkhani (palmiers) in my mouth! My goal this time is to not do this! .
.
☆Pregnancy and Weight Gain☆ .
•I think we’re all clear; gone are the days when mothers-to-be literally ate for two. Am I right? .
•However, how much should an expecting mother be eating and how much weight gain is appropriate? .
•Does it vary based on your baseline weight? It certainly does! .
•Appropriate weight gain for each person depends on various factors, including pre-pregnancy weight and body mass index (BMI), overall health and the baby's health as well. .
•Being overweight before pregnancy increases the risk of various pregnancy complications, including gestational diabetes, high blood pressure disorders of pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, and the need for a C-section. .
•If you're underweight before pregnancy, it's essential to gain a reasonable amount of weight while you're pregnant. Insufficient weight gain may result in a smaller than expected baby. .
•Gaining too much weight during pregnancy can increase the baby's risk of health problems and you might also be at increased risk of pregnancy-related hypertension, gestational diabetes, prolonged labor, and C-section or delivery before your due date. There may also be increased risk of postpartum weight retention and blood clots as well.

General guidelines for pregnancy weight gain:
•Underweight (BMI under 18.5) – Recommended weight gain 28 to 40 lbs. (about 13 to 18 kg)
•Normal weight (BMI 18.5 to 24.9) - 25 to 35 lbs. (about 11 to 16 kg)
•Overweight (BMI 25 to 29.9) - 15 to 25 lbs. (about 7 to 11 kg)
•Obesity (BMI 30 or more) - 11 to 20 lbs. (abt 5 to 9 kg)

Numbers vary if one is carrying twins etc.

  • Dropping it like it’s hot is not an easy task at 38 weeks (aka 9 months) pregnant but I’ll be damned if a little challenge is gonna stop me from trying. I may have gone on hiatus from teaching yoga and massaging at this point but self-care is still a priority for me. I will do what I can because I want to be the best version of myself for my family and myself. Plus I’m determined and stubborn as a mule. 😆 You’ve got to take good care of yourself before you can efficiently take care of others. So take time to breathe and do things that make you feel good. It will pay off in the end. Scouts honor.

•We’re on the downhill slide! Baby girl looked good, my placenta finally moved, and we’re working on relieving my restless legs so I can sleep again. I’m hoping I successfully talked doc into delivering at 38 weeks🤞🏻(all dependent on blood sugars and pressures.) I’m also down another 2lbs!☺️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Back in 2 weeks for a growth scan! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I DID IT YALL! 8 weeks of my at home Barre program is COMPLETE! ANDDDDD here it is the 8 week transformation that goes with it LOL. While I clearly didn’t emerge from this program with a six pack, here is what I DID achieve:⁣
⁣
1. Bigger Boobs and Belly HAHA 🤣 ⁣
2. Toned Muscles⁣
3. A lifted booty ⁣
4. Confidence ⁣
5. A healthy baby ⁣
6. Proof I can do ANYTHING⁣
⁣
This is my 19th program I’ve completed since beginning at home fitness programs in 2014 and my THIRD that I completed from start to finish since I found out I was pregnant. Truth is guys? Every program was in a different stage of life and every single time (even this time), I got something out of it. ⁣
⁣
I can’t imagine where I’d be today if I would have thrown in the towel in 2014 three days into my first program. I remember being sore as hell, not seeing the results fast enough, and discouraged because I was so out of shape. But I kept going anyway. That led me to my next program where I got to my goal weight. The next one where I built muscle. The next one where I gained flexibility. The next one which pushed me outside of my comfort zone. The next one which built my endurance. The next one which got me ready for my wedding. I could keep going. Every commitment was for a different reason. ⁣
⁣
The cool thing is that I will continue to workout as long as my body will let me (I’m getting ready for our NEWEST boxing program) and then I’m going to enter a NEW stage of my life AGAIN. Postpartum life. I’ve never experienced it before but I’m willing to bet that it’s not going to be easy. ⁣
⁣
I’ll be back at Day 1.⁣
It will hurt.⁣
I will cry.⁣
I will not want to show up.⁣
I’ll be on a lack of sleep and having to lose weight for the first time in my life.⁣
I won’t want to do it. ⁣
⁣
But I still will. Because I’m strong. Because I have the tools. Because I’ve been given an outlet that provides accountability and support. Because I deserve it.

  • Do you plan to give birth in the hospital? Then you should be thinking about making a birth plan. A birth plan is a great way to communicate your wishes for your birth to your care team. A well done birth plan gives you the best chances of having your dream ideal birth experience. ⠀
⠀
Let me share a quick tip with you about making your birth plan!⠀
⠀
First off, you want to be sure your birth plan is short and easy to understand. Unfortunately, I've seen many birth plans that are neither. If your birth plan isn't short and easy to understand - truth talk - it's more likely to be ignored by doctors, nurses and anyone else who's involved in your birth. ⠀
⠀
I've got MUCH more to tell you about how to make a birth plan that works to help you have the birth you want! I've delivered hundreds of babies so I know from experience what birth plans work the best. I've put that knowledge into a FREE online class to share with you! ⠀
⠀
In this online class you'll learn exactly what you need to know to make a birth plan that works for you. Women love this class, so don't wait to register! ⠀

  • Thawing Frozen Milk. ⠀
⠀
When using frozen milk there are some do’s and don'ts to keep in mind. ⠀
⠀
Do’s:⠀
⠀
👍🏻 If you need the milk for an upcoming feed you can place the frozen milk in a cup of lukewarm water or a bottle warmer to thaw.  Once thawed and warmed the milk is safe to use for 1 hour. After 1 hour the milk will need to be discarded. ⠀
⠀
👍🏻 If you do not need the milk for a longer period of time you can place it in the refrigerator to thaw.  Keep in mind once there are no longer any ice crystals, the milk is safe to use for 24 hours. After 24 hours it must be discarded. ⠀
⠀
👍🏻 Be sure to swirl the milk to incorporate the fatty layer. ⠀
⠀
👍🏻Always check the temperature of the milk on your skin prior to giving it to your baby to make sure the milk is not too hot. ⠀
⠀
Don’ts:⠀
⠀
👎🏻 Never use a microwave or the stove to thaw milk as it can cause hot spots which can burn your baby’s mouth as well as break down the delicate nutrients in your breast milk. ⠀
⠀
👎🏻 Never shake breast milk as it can break down the nutrients in your breastmilk. ⠀
⠀
👎🏻Never mix fresh and frozen milk. ⠀
⠀
Still have milk preparation questions, drop them in the comments below👇🏻

  • Scar massage & scar mobilization is a must for your #csectionrecovery. BUT it's never mentioned, you'll be told “keep it clean in order to prevent infection.” Months later you have an incision that is numb or tender. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's why we're giving you the heads up and getting you started with our postpartum massage oil. Massaging takes less than 5 minutes and should be done at least twice daily. Massaging frees up your skin relieving numbness and tenderness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
