Good Morning Bonitas Amigas.
It happened again…It seems to be a thing – me waking up irritatingly early on Tuesdays. WTF man?
So yeah, I opened my eyeballs at approximately 5:45am. Laid in bed to check emails and stuff until 6:08. I figured being vertical would help my newly developed head cold, so I got up…literally.
Woe is me.
My remedy is to fill my body up with HEALTH. I would also say sleep, but despite my honest efforts, that’s proven to not always work out for me.
I started my day with hot lemon + honey water.
This works wonders. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon + 1 tsp. (ideally raw) high quality honey. I’ll down about 3-5 of these suckers throughout the day. I usually only add the honey once a day, because the sugar can get excessive. I don’t want gestational diabetes, now…DELETE!
I’m 21 weeks pregnant and change…the bump is poppin’ – and I mean that literally, and in the urban dictionary way (4th meaning).
The growing body is simultaneously exciting yet strange — in the sense that it’s taken some getting used to.
Bottom line is, I’ve never been this big before. I realize I don’t have to tell you jack about my weight gain, but I’m fine with it, and I’d rather be an open book, baby. That’s how I roll.
This week, I’m eight pounds heavier than my starting weight… and I attribute that to ALL BUMP and FLUID! …Hah! Don’t get it twisted, I’m definitely carrying some extra juice on my buns and in my hips. Just call me Kim K.
Here is what I have to say about my new body.
NEW BODY, NEW CLOTHES.
I’ve been doing some damage in the maternity shopping department, because…aside from comfort, looking cute is a priority. Duh. Baby C will have a MILF.
My favorites so far have been the following:
HATCH: On the more expensive side, but makes high quality, fashion forward, and COMFORTABLE stuff.
ASOS Maternity: Got (2) super cute bathing suits for $60! Like wuuuuuttt. I was skeptical about the quality, but they’re actually really nice and fit well. WIN.
BLANQI Supportwear: Found these guys on Insta. Just bought their over-the-bump leggings and supportive tank. All black. Obviously. I’ll let you know how I like.
BEYOND (YOGA) THE BUMP: Most comfortable activewear.
…K, now I kinda wanna shop. I just saw some new arrivals…
In the meantime, chew on this…
