Comments Off on Feet First into Summer

One part of me is craving the super hot days of summer and then the other part of me is wondering if that is going to lead to extra swollen pregnancy feet and being uncomfortable. The most common statement I think I have received this pregnancy is something along the lines of “Good luck making it through summer”.

This first few hot days I am not going to lie, they took me by surprised and I was feeling super exhausted. Since taking that into consideration and being more conscious about staying hydrated I have seen such a difference. Making the effort to do more walking and embracing the weather has also allowed me to feel more comfortable in the heat. Being pregnant in the summer shouldn’t be something that is feared or have warning labels stuck to it, but rather something to look forward to.

So instead of focusing on the heat and how it could possibly make me feel uncomfortable this summer I am going to look forward to the benefits of the heat. This summer I will have a solid month together with both of the kids giving them attention and exploring before baby makes her arrival. For all you pregnant Mommas out there this summer, don’t let the usual comments get you down, but instead focus on the benefits you get from being pregnant this summer and enjoy your time (whether the feet swell or not it won’t last forever).

A little saying I picked up from the latest issue of @maplemagazinecanada that came in my Maple Box. The whole concept of their magazine and the Maple Box is to create comfort and coziness along with encouraging a healthier well-being for yourself (I like it!). I discovered new-to-me products within their quarterly box (take a look at my IG stories for a closer look inside) and love the attention to detail and quality organic products. #ad #themaplebox #maplemagazine
  • A selfie success I’d say. 🐶
  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀
