  • Our spoilt little prin so far. Love her wardrobe full of pastels and neutrals I do love pink but I’m not overly a girly girl anyways. Getting more bits for her room this week and already ordered quite a bit. I can be lay in bed a night and new idea will pop in my head 🙄 I can’t believe next week I will be 6 months pregnant it’s actually scary she will be here before we know it.  Very exciting can’t wait to see what she looks like our 3D/4D scan is nearly 3 weeks away guaranteed she’ll look like her dad🤔

Les travaux de notre salle de bain  mettent nos nerfs à rude épreuve car il y a un retard monstre sur la réception de la commande 🤯

  • FOODS TO AVOID IN PREGNANCY:

During pregnancy there seems to be a large emphasis on foods that should not be consumed however this is actually a very small cohort of foods

Simplifying and demystifying these food groups below....

Dairy to avoid:
Unpasteurised milk or cheeses
Soft blue cheeses or mould-ripened soft cheeses

Why?
Unpasteurised products may contain listeria there is a small chance that listeriosis may lead to miscarriage, stillbirth or make your baby unwell

Meat to avoid:
Anything raw or undercooked
Liver
Pâté (even vegetarian varieties)
Game meats
Cold cured meats (unless thoroughly cooked)

Why?
Consuming raw or undercooked meats may cause toxoplasmosis which can lead to miscarriage
Liver has high Vitamin A levels which can be harmful to an unborn baby
Game meats may contain lead shot

Eggs to avoid:
Raw or partially cooked non-British Lion stamped eggs (unless cooked thoroughly)

Why?
Eggs without the lion stamp are less likely to contain salmonella which causes food poisoning

Fish to avoid:
Swordfish, marlin and shark
Raw shellfish

Why?
Swordfish, marlin and shark contain high levels of mercury which can be harmful to your baby’s developing nervous system
Raw shellfish may have harmful bacteria, viruses and toxins which could give you food poisoning

Fish to limit:
Eat no more than 2 portions oily fish per week
Eat no more than 2 tuna steaks or 4 cans of tuna per week

Why?
Oily fish may contain pollutants that, in high levels, could be harmful to your unborn baby
Tuna contains high levels of mercury

Limit Caffeine:
200mg/ day (2 cups of coffee)

Why? 
High caffeine levels have been linked to increased levels of miscarriage and low birth weight infants

Oh and there’s no such thing as a silly question, ask away! 

💙Comment if you’d be interested in any further competitions to win a Zoom session and I’ll set one up! 💙

  Let’s get prepared 💙

  • Musik in deinen Ohren! 🎶
Spielt ihr für euer (ungeborenes) Baby manchmal oder gar regelmäßig Musik vor? Wenn ja, was genau hört euer Bauchzwerg gerne? Nachdem ich gelesen hatte, das Babies in einer Studie besonders auf Bohemian Rapsody von Queen abgegangen sein sollen, habe ich das natürlich ausprobiert. Und siehe da, der Wurm hat sich bewegt! 😃🕺Noch extremer wurde es dann bei „Under Pressure“.😄 Und dann gestern Abend… wir haben uns „Rocketman“ angeschaut. Was soll ich sagen, ich glaube er ist ein großer Elton John Fan. 😆 Bei jeeedem Lied habe ich ihn gespürt. Ich hoffe, es sollte nicht heißen, dass wir diesen furchtbaren Sound ausschalten sollten. Denn dann wurde der Zwerg wirklich 2 Stunden gequält. 🙉 
Abends hören wir übrigens immer ein paar Spieluhren-Einschlaf-Lieder, da sich Babies, wenn sie auf die Welt kommen, daran ja anscheinend erinnern können und so die bekannten Melodien eventuell beruhigend finden. 😴 Wir werden sehen. Einen Versuch ist es auf jeden Fall wert. 👍
Habt ihr noch weitere musikalische Vorschläge? 
Und ja, ich habe wirklich eine Ukulele daheim. Außer 5 Noten kann ich allerdings noch nichts darauf spielen. 😂

  • Folic acid supplements have become a norm for women who want to conceive or are pregnant. In most cases, your doctor will recommend supplementation with folic acid from the moment you announce you want a baby. Very recently, this happened to me as well, but I’m always in favor of getting my minerals and vitamins from natural sources instead of synthetic supplements, so I thought this topic deserves a post.

Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate which means it is chemically manufactured. Folate, vitamin B9, is a water soluble vitamin that occurs naturally in food. Manufactured folic acid is used as a dietary supplement and in food fortification as it is more stable during processing and storage. It is also widely available and affordable as a supplement and it’s become a huge industry. Folic acid has become so popular that the term is now used interchangeably with folate. Incorrectly, if you ask me. 
Like for most minerals and vitamins, demands for folate increase during pregnancy and that’s because it is also required for growth and development of the fetus. The baby’s neural tube closes within the first 6 weeks of pregnancy, so starting before conception might be important. I wholeheartedly recommend getting our folate requirements from food first and potentially from a natural folate supplement. 

1. Folate requires less steps to be activated and utilized by the body. The synthetic folic acid is first converted by the body into folate, which makes it less efficient.

2. There’s folate in foods that we can easily consume: leafy green vegetables, salads, avocadoes, nuts, legumes, whole grain products, eggs, and high quality algae products. Folate is not stored long-term in the body, so you need to eat folate-containing foods frequently. If, for some reason, this is not possible, there are natural whole-foods folate supplements that you can take.

3. The cooking method will make a difference. Try to steam rather than boil your green vegetables, as this can double the folate content. 

4. If you know you have a MTHFR gene mutation (topic for another post), supplementing with the biological active form 5-MTHF is a more efficient alternative.

  • 5 M O I S de toi mon bébé. 5 mois que je te porte dans mon bidon, 5 mois que tu vis à l’intérieur de moi bien au chaud, 5 mois que nos 2 petits cœurs battent ensemble. Plus de la moitié du chemin, on se rapproche tout doucement de ta rencontre. Nous avons tellement hâte et à la fois je profite de ces instants où je t’ai pour moi toute seule 🙈. On t’aime déjà si fort 🤍

•

Encore une semaine de gagné ! 
•

D’après mon application Grossesse+ qui me suis depuis le tout début de ma grossesse, j’ai l’équivalent de deux melons d’eau 🍈 en fruits ou de deux lionceaux 🦁 en animaux et pour finir deux barbes à papa 🍭(il n’y a pas de barbe à papa en emoji vous m’excuserez 🤷🏻‍♀️) en confiserie 😂
•

Depuis samedi je me sens plus lourde, vite fatiguée, alors place au repos ! Je vais arrêter de trop bouger pour garder mes petites choupettes bien au chaud pendant encore quelques semaines 🙏🏻
•

Programme des prochaines semaines : canapé, séries, sieste avec Rosie 🐶 et sans oublier : faire le goûter 🍩 !
•

👀 Pour vous donner une idée de l’envers du décor de cette photo : c’est Monsieur qui a du me relever car là j’étais clairement telle une baleine échouée incapable de se relever seule 🐳🤣

We’re in single digits and I’m really starting to feel nervous now! We still have so much to buy and I can honestly say nesting hasn’t even kicked in yet, probably due to my pregnancy insomnia and sleeping about 5hrs a night 🥴
.
Nevertheless I’m so excited for the next few weeks of work before having some time off with the baby. If you’ve messaged me about the travel business, then I am going through these messages and getting all my new agents set up to start earning back from their holidays or creating a little side hustle 🤩🥂
.
Can’t quite believe it’s almost been a year since I started my own travel business and half way through July, I’ve already earned 4-figures from it. Definitely the best decision I ever made was saying yes and being open minded, because now I’ll be on maternity with baby number 2 knowing my business is still paying me! Building a legacy around my babies is actual LIFE GOALS 🙌🏼 
.
You never know what an opportunity can do for you until you say YES. Especially one that involves something that EVERYONE YOU KNOW including YOU is doing, thinking of and booking: TRAVEL 🌴

My inbox is ALWAYS open guys 💕
