Tamanu Oil – GOLD

This stuff is gold! I swear, it has done some miracles for me (and literally it is quite expensive) haha! As you know from this post, I am all about natural beauty products and this one fits in just splendidly. While we were in Bora Bora on our honeymoon, my husband and I got tattoosContinue reading “Tamanu Oil – GOLD”

Fitness during pregnancy

Before I got pregnant, I was on a mission to drop weight for our wedding. I worked out every day and was able to loose a significant amount of weight for the big day. Over our weddings and honeymoon, I didn’t work out (my husband actually went to the gym at the hotel everyday, includingContinue reading “Fitness during pregnancy”

Life as seen through my phone

I have been wanting to post an update only with pictures as we have had so many things happen in the past two weeks. Of course, Christmas and New Years Eve, but one week after New Years Eve its my birthday, then one week after that it’s my husbands birthday, and of course in betweenContinue reading “Life as seen through my phone”

Acupuncture -Part III

If you’ve been following along, part I here and part II here, I had another acupuncture session 24 hours ago. In short, for those of you who haven’t been following, I’m doing acupuncture to hopefully induce labor as my due date draws closer, reduce labor by 2-3 hours and help with my swelling in myContinue reading “Acupuncture -Part III”

Raspberry leaf tea

I’ve recently started drinking raspberry leaf tea and let me tell you, it is delicious! A woman from my prenatal group told me about it so I got to searching (and asking my doctor about it) and started drinking it almost immediately. Here’s why a few reasons why (for those of you not pregnant): ItContinue reading “Raspberry leaf tea”

Acupuncture -Part II

24 hours ago I had my second round of acupuncture to induce labor (you can find my first experience here). Obviously, my first round didn’t induce me, quite yet, and I will have it done once a week until he comes. So, for the second round: I ended up having a horrible headache all dayContinue reading “Acupuncture -Part II”

Birthday thoughts

   Wow, I cannot believe it is my birthday, again! It feels like just yesterday my husband was making me butter chicken in our kitchen while listening to me talk about what ever non-sense I was rambling on about. My birthday doesn’t really feel like my day this year as I am SO looking forwardContinue reading “Birthday thoughts”

Casual Pregnancy Pictures

I really love capturing a moment. I love candid shots as well as shots which have been staged, what I don’t love, are the endless photos of me while pregnant that are, well, needless to say, unflattering. Am I alone on this one? Some days I don’t even feel like putting on makeup and otherContinue reading “Casual Pregnancy Pictures”

Pregnancy Acupuncture-Part 1

I have been waiting to try pregnancy acupuncture for a while now, well, since I was about 24 weeks and heard about the benefits. There are a lot of different kinds of acupuncture you can get while pregnant (to help with aching backs, headaches, any pain you may have, there’s acupuncture to help with) butContinue reading “Pregnancy Acupuncture-Part 1”
