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).

  • Tuesday is one of our busiest mornings of the week. With breakfast, prepping lunch for Ezra, preschool snacks for Sophie and aiming to get all three dressed for their activities of the day there isn't a lot of me time. One thing I've learnt is that I need to make sure I am getting myself fuelled in the morning in order to be my best self and handle the morning rush with grace. I've been doing this two ways: 1. Eat an actual breakfast (not just the kids' scraps) and 2. Taking a minute to make a @nespresso.ca -- For those extra tired mornings I'll put in a Double Espresso capsule!
•
For those local that are interested in getting a @nespresso.ca machine for yourself, you will be able to shop in person at their new Boutique in Metrotown! Did you get a chance to see it in my stories on Monday? If not, head to my highlights for a sneak peek. #Partner #NespressoMoments #NespressoMorning
