Well we are now a few weeks into the third trimester and have passed the 30 week mark! I can hardly believe June is just around the corner and that’s the month before our due date. Things have felt so much more real lately since I’ve now had both of my baby showers (one in MA and one in NJ) and we are going to be starting on the nursery soon. I cannot wait to set up the room- I feel like it’s going to be my favorite part of the house!
Recently, I was chatting with one of my good friends and fellow Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. We were talking about how despite being Nutritional Therapists, we have both personally found more balance, ease and happiness thinking LESS (not more) about our food choices.
I can hardly believe that the next time I’ll be doing a recap I’ll be in the third trimester! Sometimes it feels like time is going slowly but then I’ll be looking at my Bump App on my phone and another week has suddenly flown by!
When people start getting into the field of natural health and wellness and researching their food, I think it’s only natural that after a while you start to also research the other items in your household. Our skin is our largest organ, and therefore what you put on your body and even what you breathe is very important for our overall health and wellness. For a few years, I mainly focused on the food I was eating, but after a while, this started to spill over into what I was putting on my body and what I was utilizing to clean my house.
And just like that, we are at the halfway mark! 20 weeks feels so significant to me because the “teen” weeks of pregnancy were filled with lots of ups and downs and just so much change from week to week. Back at 12 weeks pregnant we had an ultrasound where our baby finally looked like- a baby! Not just a little bean. And that was such a joyful moment. But then I still had some anxiety and nerves around this last ultrasound, the “big one”, as this was the one where all other abnormalities were ruled out and we made sure everything was developing properly. Not to mention that we found out the sex of the baby and had a gender reveal party at week 18. There’s just been a lot going on! But it’s truly the best and I feel so happy and grateful every time I feel those little kicks in my belly. So let’s go back a bit and talk about how the past few weeks have been!
