My crazy American Bully Pops who was investigating on what I was up to while taking photos for this post.
Hello, Welcome! This week I am 17 weeks pregnant and not a whole lot has changed for this week. I feel like I’m not even pregnant. There are mornings I wake up and have to look down to see if my bump is still there and of course it still is. I woke up early morning a little worry because all my symptoms are gone. I didn’t even know that you can have a “free day” of not feeling anything like tiredness or feeling lower back pains.
Later that day that I wasn’t feeling pregnant I went Putt-Putt golfing with the family for my Aunt Nicky’s birthday and after the game I felt everything again which is a relief for me since I rather feel everything, its like a reassuring thing for me that my body is changing for the little one and everything is okay.
The bump is getting bigger and holy cow it’s so weird to see my body going thru this change for the first time. Going to the bathroom is a must all the time and eating everything possible. One thing this week that has got me is these wild dreams and when I say wild I’m talking about running around like a zombie slayer whopping
ass! I had a couple dreams slaying zombies due to my obsession playing COD Black Ops 4.
Food cravings for this week!
- Mashed Potatoes
- Green Beans
- Butterscotch dip vanilla Ice Cream From Dairy Queen
Thanks, everyone and catch my next week update!
Hello, Welcome! Today is my 16-weeks pregnant update. A few things to mention with you all, I am pregnant with my first child with my boyfriend of 10 years. We are expecting a baby girl who will be here on June 22 this summer. I’m over here taking notes and reading tons of information as I have no idea what to expect. One thing I do know is that I’m going to be a mother and there is nothing I can express truly how excited I am to have a mini-me taking over the household.
Every Saturday when I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is walk over to my bookshelf and grab my book called Your Pregnancy Week By Week. Every Saturday is adding another week to my pregnancy, therefore, I sit down with a glass of milk and start reading the new week that I am and what to expect.
Trust me, if you are a new mother to be this book is everything. I was originally Googling everything I felt and experience and doing that just scared me, the things I was reading was a little crazy and making me nervous for no reason when there is nothing wrong in the first place.
With that being said I feel a lot better once I hit the second trimester. I have tons more energy now and enjoy waking up early in the morning and going to bed early at night. I was never the one to get up early in the morning but ever since I am pregnant I have this wonderful sleep schedule right now (Been told not to get used to it, once the baby is here that will be all messed up)
Few things I noticed have changed and one of them is my baby bump. Of course, it’s getting bigger but I mean I’m having a bit of a hard time when I put some pants on or pick something up from the floor the belly is starting to get in the way meaning that the belly is no more squishy like feeling and more solid and I feel something like the baby is sitting on my bladder maybe? I don’t know but it’s a new feeling that I’m experiencing this week.
Another thing that is new this week is I’m starting to break out on my jawline and under my chin. I have a routine where I wash my face morning and night but from my reading, this is totally normal for pregnant women to experience, just a bummer!
Food Cravings for this week!
- Kettle popcorn
- Mashed Potatoes
That’s a wrap! Thank you all! Catch my pregnancy update post every Wednesday!
I have been looking forward to this day for many many months after I read The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. Today was the released day for The Wicked King by Holly Black which is the second book to The Folk Of The Air series.
Last year I tried to get an ARC for this lovely gem and was unfortunate to get one. I heard so much and how wonderful this book is from the lucky ones that received an ARC. I was definitely the one counting down the days and even woke up early to head to my local Barnes And Noble to get my copy today, and trust me I gave them a call ahead of time to put it on hold for me that I will be there first thing in the morning to pick it up.
Now that I finally have my hands on this wonderful book, tonight is all about “Me Time!” Hot bath, Hot tea, and cuddles with my furbaby on my fluffy bed.
But before I can get that “Me Time” I need to take a trip to the mall to get a Cinnabon! Pregnancy cravings are little nuts right now.
Outfit Of The Day
Shoes: Black Point slip-on from Target
Pants: Maternity Skinny Jeans from Motherhood Maternity
Shirt: Black and White Polka Dot Blouse from my Mother when I told her that I was pregnant and needed bigger shirts!
Here is my review of The Cruel Prince By Holly Black if you didn’t get a chance to read it yet!
Howdy everyone and Happy New Year. I have some major news to share with you all and some wonderful things that are happening. Hope everyone is off to a great start for 2019. I had disappeared from my blog since October and I have a reason for it but just know I am back and ready to upgrade my blog. Let me break down the news step by step and save the biggest news for last.
The first news to share with you all is that I am going to be sharing more of my interest with the world. I would like everyone to get an insight look into my life I guess you can say. My hobby and love for books will still be a part of this blog however I will be adding three more things that are a part of my daily life.
What are those three things you may ask that are being added to this blog… Well, I’ll tell you the first two and save the third one for last. I will be adding Fashion and Beauty, I would like to share my daily routines with you all and also learn from others on tricks and tips with their daily routine.
Some other news I would like to share is that my Etsy shop will also be getting an upgrade with more book sleeves that I am working on as of right now with new print so stay tuned and I will keep you all posted.
I will be working on making videos and having a Youtube channel also. I am still learning on how to edit the videos. If anyone has helpful tips that would be greatly appreciated.
And for the biggest news, I would like to share is the reason for my absence was I found out that I will be expecting my first child this year with my boyfriend of 10 years. We are very excited and looking forward to this journey as new parents. So the final interest I would be adding to this blog will be Motherhood, my journey as a new mother and my experiences. I look forward to working on my blog and adding new features and topics to share with you all.
Thank you all so much and I will still be doing book reviews with this blog and keeping up with all the books and sharing my book photography photos too! In the meantime, please excuse my blog while it is in the process of rebuilding.
Holy cow! It’s been nine days since I last posted! I swear there is a good reason, but a more personal reason that I will announce sometime soon. I went on my October Book Haul earlier than expected this month and here are all the goodies I purchased this month.
