fullsizeoutput_3d99christina_cenci_youth_of_the_sunyouth_of_the_sun_christina_cenci

♥ How many weeks pregnant are you? 33 weeks & 5 days

♥ Gender? Boy.

♥ If you could choose boy or girl, which would you want? 100% a boy.

♥ Do you have a name picked out? Yes.

♥ Do you like being pregnant? Almost the entire pregnancy I have felt my “normal” self, so I would say yes.

♥ Biggest craving? Pickles.

♥ Any morning sickness? Luckily no morning sickness.

♥ When did you feel the first kick? I actually wrote it down in his baby book. I felt his first kick on February 18th 2018 at 11:05am.

♥ How much weight did you gain during pregnancy? 17lbs, the baby weighs 5 lbs.

♥ Did you get any stretch marks? No, thank goodness. I put on coconut oil or rosehip oil twice a day & drink one gallon of water a day to help keep my skin stay hydrated.

♥ Do you have any body swelling? None at all, so far.

♥ Are you wearing maternity clothes? No maternity clothing, but I am wearing a lot of cute & comfy sun dresses.

♥ Are you doing a Natural or C-section? C-section.

♥ How is your sleeping? I sleep normal & listen to my body when I need to rest during the day.

♥ Did you diet? I “eat right for my type” which is a lifestyle for me of eating proper foods that my blood type can easily digest. I am blood type A, which is no meats, only fruits, vegetables, & lentils. I did add salmon occasionally to my diet for some extra omega 3’s & protein now & then.

♥ What exercises did you do? I did Barry’s bootcamp double floor my whole pregnancy up until about 2 weeks ago. I do a lot of weight training for sculpting. My doctor said I didn’t have to modify too much since I did those exercises prior. I was only told to modify the amount of weight I am lifting. I also walk about 3-6 miles a night during the week for cardio.

♥ How is your mood? I do get moody aka “hangry” if I miss a meal.

♥ Did your boobs change? Nope! I did have my nipples pierced (which is usually a surprise to people) but I did take them out because they started to feel sore & hurt.

♥ Did pregnancy change the types of skincare products you used? I use vegan skin products.

♥ Will you breastfeed? Yes, so many benefits from breastfeeding.

♥ Do you have a nursery theme picked out? Not necessarily a theme but his nursery is  ivory with espresso colored woods for the furniture & you can find some lions in there.

♥ What will you miss most about pregnancy? Going to the doctors appointments to hear his heartbeats inside my belly. I give the biggest grin every time I hear it.

♥ What has been the best part of being pregnant? The whole experience. 9 months is a short time out of my entire life & to grow a life is a magical experience, so I am truly enjoying it all.

♥ What’s been the worst part of being pregnant? Sweating even just sitting there sometimes, but then again maybe it’s the Florida heat.

♥ Will you record your labor? Not recording but I do have a photographer in the room taking photos to document the special day.

♥ What are you most looking forward to after pregnancy? Having a mini me to love,  laugh with, grow with, read to, & to thoroughly enjoy the holidays with.

♥ Will you share a lot of the baby on the blog? Absolutely.

♥ Do you want more kids? Yes but not anytime soon!

    Sounds like you were actually quite lucky when it comes to the morning sickness and stretch marks! It’s so interesting to read answers like this, having never been pregnant myself I can’t even imagine half of it lol.

    Have a good weekend dude 🙂
