Transformation....Sunday??? 🤰🏼🤔 Picture on the left was taken a year ago today, just one short week before our baby girl entered this world! Picture on the right was taken this evening. WOW - is pregnancy an amazing thing or what?!? I remember being SO ready yet SO nervous this time last year. I was carrying a lot of water and couldn't even wear my wedding band. I was uncomfortable and trying every wives tale I knew of to try and jump start labor. I was devouring spicy foods, walking miles a day, and eating whole pineapples. 😂🤦🏼♀️ Little did I know baby girl needed one more week to cook!
At this point I had gained a little over 30 pounds - when I was checked into the hospital I had gained right at 34 pounds. Pregnancy is tough on your body and it's important to take time to allow yourself to recover. After delivering Kennedy I took A LONG time off from exercising. With breastfeeding and adjusting to motherhood it was just too much for me. But it's ok -- and I don't regret it a bit. Give yourself a little grace Mama and know it's never too late to start! I'm here when you're ready. 😘😍 Also- any future daddy's out there: nesting is REAL! I thought my husband would die when I insisted on doing a bathroom reno 1 week before I delivered. 😂😉 #happywifehappylife
