When you realize it’s been 2 weeks since you’ve posted on Instagram.... and life has still gone on & is great ✨ 🙌🏼 Between baby prep, 3 showers, and down right just taking care of business, I’m really trying to enjoy this time with Justin, family, and friends before life REALLY gets crazy 🤪 I had a handful of DM’s asking for a link to this jumpsuit that I wore to my baby shower yesterday, but unfortunately it’s a couple years old and no longer available 🙈 I did link similar options via @liketoknow.it if that floats your boat 👍🏻 Shop the details via LIKEtoKNOW.it app or link in my bio! #potd📷 #ootdfash#bumpstyle
Being a surrogate has been one of the best experiences of my life. Everyday I feel so honored that a couple would trust me with their future, and it pushes me to want to do better for them. We are now 20 weeks down, with 20 weeks to go
One thing's for sure, I know this is love that I'm feeling! 💜👶😭

Estava guardando essa novidade, mas agora acredito ser a hora certa pra contar: YES! A família vai crescer ✨
Confesso que minha ficha ainda está caindo, ficamos surpresos, mas muito felizes!
Só tenho a agradecer pelo marido e pela filha incrível que eu tenho e por tudo que fazem por mim.
Andei bem sumida por não estar me sentindo bem nesses últimos tempos, mas aos poucos irei voltando.
Agora vocês vão acompanhar mais essa fase da minha vida, estou muito feliz em compartilhar essa notícia por aqui.
Ah, e essa barriguinha já é de 19 semanas (ou seja, falta mais uma semaninha para 5 meses).
Imagina se está passando rápido HAHA
“Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going.” 🌸💚🌸 Happy Sunday, it’s all about the pretty little details! Today has been such a busy day and the heat is killing me! 😆😅 Are you ready for a brand new week?
39 weeks. ⠀
Baby is the size of a 🎃. ⠀
Last week was full of tears, worry, stress, frustration, and miserableness. ⠀
Something about hitting ‘39 weeks’ just makes everything feel so much closer. 🥰⠀
Nesting has begun, anxiety has subsided. ⠀
Committed to taking it all in and taking advantage of this time together. 💙 But still hoping this is the last bump date 😉
💝💝IT'S A GIRL💝💝

Andy and I want to thank everyone for the huge outpouring of love and support! It has been a crazy little adventure for our new little family and we are both just floating on cloud nine right now.
Thanks to friend and family as well, being so patient with us about posting up photos.
28 weeks! 🤰🏼
One of my favorite things about pregnancy has been surrendering to my body. I didn’t feel that I had a poor relationship with my body before getting pregnant, but giving into the process of growing a human has made me realize how much more I can and should trust my body.
Consciously, of course, we feed and hydrate ourselves and balance rest with activity. But being pregnant has made me realize how much is going on inside without directive or control. My body now has more influence on my decisions than my mind. I don’t want to quiet it when it tells me I’m hungry or need rest, or when it urges me to move and stretch or eat less. I don’t want to punish it when it’s not up for a task. I don’t want to criticize it when I look in the mirror and see the outline of a Tellie Tubby 😏
Overall, I simply trust it more. And by trusting my body, I feel like I’m trusting its Creator. While some might call it self love or body positivity, I see it as worship. To be grateful and praise God for this earthly home of skin and bones, even on days it doesn’t look/feel/act right. I really, truly hope to take this mindset into the postpartum phase when the temptation will be to criticize and rush to look a certain way again.
Here’s to 12 more weeks of growing, shifting, stretching, and making way for this little girl’s grand entrance 🧡
