Portal of Life “Pregnancy”


73C83329-9504-4AF3-B93F-D0F53138B803IMG_3913This is the first time announcing on my blog about my pregnancy & I am so excited to share this with you all. ♥

This is my writing space of honesty, & to be honest my pregnancy came as a surprise to many, including myself. But in life things happen in a special way, just the way they are supposed to. For me, planning and knowing is a lot more settling, so this news put me into a question shock for quite a few days. Then I thought; this is really happening, the miracle of life, and I knew I was chosen to portal this soul that is full of life onto earth to help me fulfill my hopes & dreams. I have always had visions of starting my own family and I knew I wanted to start with a baby boy.

If you know me or follow me on Instagram you know I am having a baby boy! For some reason I knew I was having a boy when I found out I was pregnant. I was 100% confident when someone would ask what they thought I was having. A lot of people would ask, “How can you be so sure if you didn’t find out yet?” Truth is I just felt it entirely. I would have visions when I would close my eyes of what he will look like, his eye color, his build, his hair color, and every detail. Everything seemed so vivid. Daryoush & I have a book of our thoughts on specifics about the baby, our words to him, what we think he will be like, & I find it fun writing in that book. Daryoush is equally happy we are having a boy. He has been the greatest dad already. Having someone like him be there for me every step of the way has been the greatest blessing. Daryoush treats me like a queen, makes sure I have flowers, we read together, he makes sure I always eat for two, cooks home cooked vegetarian meals (his family teases him that I turned him into a vegetarian too) almost every day, he makes sure I don’t have anything to worry about, & is the most kind & loving teddy bear in my world. I could not have asked for a better man on this new journey. I believe life happens with who and when it is supposed to.

Luckily I did not have any morning sickness the entire pregnancy. However in the first 3 months I barely ate because I would feel a nauseous feeling constantly. I only craved pickles, artichokes marinated in oil, and everything bagels. Once the 4th month kicked in, I had my full appetite back and my energy levels were up again. Over the holidays I didn’t workout for 2-3 weeks as consistent as possible and I could say I saw a difference in my body, and not a difference I wanted to continue to see. Seeing a change in my body just from not being as active, I picked back up with my discipline of working out 1 hour a day with Rachel Robinson at Barry’s Bootcamp as well as 3-6 mile walks about 5 nights a week. My body starting getting tighter and back to normal now that I have stayed consistent and disciplined. I continue to do my workouts with clearance from my doctor. I workout often and I do get a lot of questions along the lines of, “is it safe for the baby?” I was told by my doctor that as long as I was doing those same workouts before I was pregnant then I can continue because it wouldn’t be considered a shock to my body. I do all the same workouts but with less weights. Walking as many miles as your body can handle is great for you and the baby, in my opinion. I always listen to my body.

I feel what has helped me remain ‘myself’ during my entire pregnancy is not only exercising but also eating for my blood type (A), which is mostly all vegetarian. My diet consists of fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, lentils, beans, rice, quinoa, oils, juices, and some smoothie bowls from my favorite juice places. I was not eating meat at all for a while but when I found out the benefits of salmon in moderation while pregnant, I incorporated salmon into my diet a few times a week. I do not eat any candy or artificial sugars & my guilt free meals are usually pizza or anything Italian.

I will be breast feeding when the baby is born. I hear stories that are 50/50 on the simplicity of breastfeeding. I choose to take the advice I receive in moderation and see for myself because that is how we all learn, from experiencing it ourselves first hand. Once the baby is of a certain age I want to mostly feed him organic, raw, colorfully natural foods. These past two years I have learned a lot about blood type dieting and I believe its important for the baby to eat right for his type as well. I plan on feeding him what is digestible for his blood type and what will give him the healthiest brain and body function. I would not feed the baby anything I wouldn’t eat such as fast foods or artificial sugars. All in all I want a strong healthy baby.

Today I am 27 weeks & 4 days in my third trimester. My stomach has stayed very tight this far & and my bump isn’t too noticeable when I am out in public. When it gets brought to someones attention their response is usually asking, “Is the baby okay?” “Is he active?” “Is he the correct weight?” Yes to all of those answers. I am feeling great! The baby kicks, is extremely happy & active. I felt his first strong kicks at 19 weeks. I noticed he really loves when I eat fruit, loves when I sing, and he loves when I say Stella’s name. I hope this post answers any questions. Feel free to ask me anything or give any advice you would love to share. ♡

    Wishing you the best.
    It’s such a great idea to do a book with the future dad and to take pictures of your belly every weeks !

    YEEEEAH! Oh my gosh, pregnancy is such an incredible thing! While I haven’t experienced it personally YET, I am just so in awe of how amazing a woman’s body is. And I love that you’re taking care of yourself and nourishing that growing baby! I think it’s funny that people ask if exercising while pregnant is ‘safe’. It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby!
    Also stoked that you’ll be breastfeeding! SO good for your baby.
    Check out the blog http://breastfeedinganswersandsolutions.com
    There’s EVERYTHING you could ever want to know about breastfeeding on there (trust me, there are so many things people don’t tell you about it!).

    SO excited to watch this journey of yours!

    Congratulations! I’m currently 38 weeks + 1 day and now it’s just a waiting game! I’m having a baby girl and it just the most exciting time. As I’m sure you have seen once you put your news on social media you are bombarded by advice – some good and some bad but try only take professional advice (it is hard though)
    Good luck
