Hi guys! I’m sorry I haven’t updated you all in so long – and for very good reason!
…. I’m PREGNANT!! 🙂
And I’m due very soon!
I know most soon-to-be mom’s are incredibly excited to meet their newborn, but to be honest, I think I feel more scared than excited at this point (especially with all the new changes coming!).
If you haven’t been following me on Instagram or on Facebook, this might be the first time that you’re finding out about this news – but I’m actually in my 3rd trimester at the moment, and onto the final home stretch (eeek!).
I hope this video gives you a quick update on my life (you’ll also get to see a clip from my gender reveal party!).
It might be because I don’t have the support of my parents being around me to experience all of this with me, since they live on the other side of the world. But I am still thankful that I have my in-laws who have been helpful, although it’s still a bit different than having parents around (if you know what I mean) 🙂
There have been some ups and downs during my pregnancy (especially during the 1st & 2nd trimester!) – not just with my skin, but also with the pregnancy hormones creating other changes in the body! It was probably one of the worst times I’ve ever been through and it challenged me a lot.
I also learned a lot – especially on how to manage eczema flare ups during pregnancy. My skin has cleared up so much since the 1st & 2nd trimester, and I’ve learned that there are definitely things you can do to manage your skin 🙂
I can’t wait to share with you all the tips I’ve learned so that you can implement it, especially if you know anyone going through the same thing.
On another note… here’s a quick update on my pregnancy journey and life over the last few months.
We had a wonderful gender reveal party on my birthday (watch the video to find out what the gender of my baby is!). Our friend baked this wonderful cake for us.
You can tell that my husband and I were both really happy with the gender of the baby! This is our reaction and expression after finding out the gender. Needless to say, we’re super stoked 🙂
This was my bump at around 6 months…I’ve definitely grown a lot bigger now 😉
We finally got our baby crib and bassinet set up. Our baby room is also 90% done! We’re so excited and we can’t wait that it’s all finally coming together! (My heart is more at ease now in case I ever go into labour) 😉
I’ve been making either a smoothie or green juice to drink on most days (it’s expensive to buy them – but I did cave in a few times because of the convenience!). My body needs the nutrients for the growing baby 🙂
I’ve researched and learned so much about pregnancy and eczema over the last year.
Needless to say, I really look forward to making more videos on this topic (as well as parenting/motherhood & baby eczema for you in the future as well)!
Have a video topic regarding pregnancy and eczema or parenting and baby eczema you want me to do? Comment below or contact me!
And in case you missed it…
My hubby and I also took an amazing trip to Iceland and Sweden right before we got pregnant earlier this year! I hope that you’ll enjoy these vlogs I made for you, and I hope it gives you a chance to share these adventures with us!
P.S. Iceland is amazing and breathtaking. The views are nothing like I’ve ever seen before! I caught some of it on camera for you to share and watch.
Thank you so much for watching and reading my update – love you guys so much!
