Time flies when you are having … fun? 🙂 It’s hard to believe the journey to baby is almost over. In a few short weeks I will be a brand new MOM! By the end of month 9, I will have packed on 25 pounds in my third trimester alone (where is it all going?) so things haven’t felt all ‘fun and games’ over here! However, I did have it pretty good throughout this pregnancy journey (here’s why!) and experienced little to no symptoms. My third trimester brought a bit of back ache and heartburn (she must be growing a lot of hair!) I stayed super active up until the final couple months and eased up a bit at the end (hello weight gain), but I am not feeling guilty about it! Unlike Duchess Meghan, I ditch heels and opt for practicality on most public appearances and outings! Comfort is my GO-TO!
It’s so important to stay positive.
Regarding baby weight, I can get back to a rigorous fitness routine, (and surfing!) after baby is born.
Having supportive hubby and friends help make me feel great no matter how big I am getting these days!

Stay Comfortable in your wardrobe:
-Opt for flats! I mostly wear Sorel boots and running shoes these days.
-I wear loose fitting shirts and flowing dresses that have some stretch.
(Animapop is one of my favorite brands, they now have an online store!
+ All Italian Made Animapop dresses are completely reversible. 2 in 1 dresses)
-Take it easy, rest when you want to!
