Let’s talk travel during pregnancy🤰🏻🛩 personally i am not the biggest fan. planes so far have made me nauseous, hot & sweaty followed by freezing cold, uncomfortable, dizzy & sick. that’s why we haven’t taken a trip in a hot minute & to be honest i have really enjoyed this time to nest at home while it’s still just the two of us 👫🏡 in a few days we are heading to london & i am excited to get away but also nervous for the journey 😬 i’ve put together a list of the top 🔟 tips i use for traveling during pregnancy that are absolute musts for me. hope they’re useful for you guys as well!👇🏼
✈️mealprep everything in advance including snacks
✈️request a pregnancy pillow at each of the hotels you are staying at. most hotels either have one available in housekeeping or will go purchase one to have at their hotel bc let’s be honest they should have them available for pregnant guests!
✈️dress in layers for the plane incase you get a hot flash or a cold flash you are totally prepared
✈️splurge on first class, business or economy plus. pregnancy is uncomfortable enough so anything you can do during a flight to make it more comfortable and accommodating is 100% worth the extra $
✈️ask your obgyn for a referral to a hospital or specialist at your destination in the off chance something happens while you’re away... better to be prepared!
✈️bring a hydrating face mask or under eye gel masks in your carry on- traveling can be so dehydrating & draining its nice to arrive refreshed ✈️wipes for the plane are an absolute must! during pregnancy you are more susceptible to sickness so wiping your hands, the seat & anything you come in contact with is always a good idea
✈️make sure to keep all prenatal vitamins & whatever medications you need easily accessible ✈️make sure to walk & stretch as often as possible & try to keep your feet elevated. compression socks also help to keep the blood flowing
✈️book yourself a prenatal massage at your destination to award yourself for the journey you’ve endured. you are growing a human & you deserve it! 💆🏽 .
do you enjoy traveling while pregnant? are there any tips you would add to this list?

42 weeks! //
42 weeks with a bun in the oven 🤰🏾swimming, lifting weights, dancing on the spin bike, turning it up at orangetheory fitness & crushing miles 🏃🏾♀️ on the treadmill and pavement.
it’s been an amazing ride and one that i won’t forget. and truth be told, if it were up to me, i would keep you inside a little bit longer.
but it’s time for you to come out and show this world what your mama has made 💪🏾
this is it folks! the last time you’ll see me and this bump 🤰🏾on the pavement.
in just a few short hours, i’ll finally get to meet this sweet stubborn girl.
thank you 🙏🏾 all for your support and following me on this journey.
wish me luck!👍🏾😀

I can’t believe i’m already half way through my pregnancy 🙌🏼😍🤗. time is going by quickly. •
fun facts! i am 20 weeks pregnant today. i’m due august 5th. our daughter moves around almost every time i eat. i don’t crave food very often. in the beginning i did want junk food - i craved macdonald’s, taco bell & hot cheetos, which is so weird because i hadn’t eaten any of these foods in probably 10 years - i gave into each craving once (hot cheetos twice), but then i told myself no more! this food isn’t good for me or my baby. so, i’ve been practicing self-control and since then have not had any cravings (mind over matter 🤷🏻♀️). now i just want to eat as clean as i can. i eat mostly plant based, but do eat salmon or meat on occasion, if i feel like that’s what i want or if that’s all that’s available (potlucks 😜). i never had morning sickness. my worst pregnancy symptom was headaches in the beginning and now i get heartburn once or twice per week. i workout 4-5 days a week and am grateful to have the energy to do so. •
last year when i was told that with my progesterone levels as low as they were i would not conceive or that if i did conceive, i would miscarry (because i was premenopausal), i began working with a natural medicine doctor to regulate my hormones. i am grateful i did this, because i believe this is a huge reason my pregnancy has been so easy. it’s also the reason i was able to conceive in the first place... 🙌🏼 that and of course because of all the prayers we sent up to heaven. if you’ve been trying to conceive, don’t give up miracles do happen! also, check out @naturalfertilityinfo they have incredible resources. my doctor actually prescribed me herbs from their website to help me conceive last year! i’m praying for you today and i believe your miracle is on the way! 💗
