This pregnancy is almost over and I'll admit that part of me is sad about it. It's kind of fun having a big tummy that pops out for a purpose and not just because I ate too much dessert. I've always imagined what it would be like to be pregnant, and now I've experienced it. A major blessing. I will always be grateful for being able to experience this, specially with a great husband on my side. Just the bump alone brought in an entire knew realm of love and excitement in our marriage. Can't imagine what will be added when the baby is finally here. It's all so exciting, stressful and overwhelming.
Before this bump goes away, I wanted to remember a few of my favorite indulgences during this time me and the boy shared this body of mine.
ROBES! I've been obsessed with robes. mine is unfortunately not as cute as this, but i would almost be willing to pay the money for this pricey one. I could stay in my robe all day if my schedule would let me. But I am planning on buying a cute pair of pj's and maybe another robe to help me feel a little cuter at the hospital. The dance sweats just aren't going to make the cut this year.
A good healthy drink. I've tried a little harder to make sure I've been eating right, specially cause this little mister is getting the results of my, either wise or poor, eating choices. I can't say I've eaten that healthy, my mouth is just attracted to treats! And treats are attracted to my mouth! So some days, i figure I can indulge in a good healthy drink to get some good nutrients in this belly. I've gulped up some strange ones, but they've been healthy so I'll do it. But a mama chia drink is always like a treat to me, with some good omega 3s in it.
My beauty indulgent has been this shae butter, hoping those stretch marks stay away. I heard great things about this product and the lady selling it to me said it will actually take stretch marks away, so that had me sold, and i've been rubbing it on my belly (and the bigger bum of mine) ever since. It's done the trick so far, just a few more weeks to keep going.
And there they are. My pregnancy happiness.
