Lately through pictures.

Life’s been busy. Work and feeling tired all the freaking time has had its toll on me. Everyday when I come back home I just want peace and quiet and a few hours of sleep.

At 28 weeks (6 months, roughly) I’m starting to feel the weight. Two months ago I had nearly no bump and all of a sudden it kind of blew up. It’s huge and I feel huge and heavy and it’s hard to keep myself light and active, but I try. It really bothers me that I can’t workout like usual, so I do what I can… I went from 500 squats a day (at three months), to none due to the bed rest I was put on, and I have now slowly built it up to 300 squats a day. But still I feel like I’m fighting against my own body. Which may be just the thing. It’s just very difficult to adjust to the idea that your body refuses to do some things…  Aside from all that I will finally have a break soon and I’m so looking forward to it!

And since I’m done uploading pictures from trips, here are some pictures of life lately.

These are all edited with RNI Slide โ€” I really like it! I have to experiment more.
Hope you enjoyed.

Have a great Thursday!

    Lovely pictures. You look wonderful.
    I feel that I can understand you in a way… When I was 5 months pregnant I was told to slow down and stop working and exercising, is not easy to adjust cause everything changes so fast.
    Forget the squates (if your body tells you so) and enjoy the moment. Squats will come again in your life in some months – at one point you will have to be focus in your body again and yourself in that way. I understand adjusting is not easy but time will help. ; ) and remember is only a phase and is unique precious time.
    all the love and the best. <3

  • Beautiful recap of your life lately. Remember to take care of yourself, though, if the body says no, listen to it, even though it may be really hard. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yeah, I heard that bump tends to show overnight. But you’re in the last trimester now and have a wonderful summer to look forward to with the little one. ๐Ÿ™‚
