YES I am pregnant, and have been for a while, I am now 24 weeks, for those of you who follow me on Instagram, you are more than aware:) I took a BIG social media and digital break the first few months of my pregnancy because I wasn’t feeling inspired, and honestly I wasn’t feeling great nor did I have the energy. I decided to focus on myself, Shirel and my hubby and just enjoy the little things and the calm that comes with disconnecting from the digital world for a bit. I know this is the time to share pregnancy style, and health tips, and everything that goes with pregnancy, and I will share bits of it and as much as I feel inspired to but I will also take it easy and enjoy our family of three before the arrival of our new beautiful baby. To catch you up on things, we are currently back in Barcelona, where I will be staying and delivering our new baby (I did the same with Shirel), and while Im here you can follow me on my Instagram to see my every day doings, and to get glimpses of this beautiful city.
It has been a little more tricky traveling while pregnant with a toddler, and trying to get her into a routine, but we are slowly getting there. For the past month she has been on and off sick, from one virus to another, as you can imagine. And now we have finally taken her off of her dispares, her nightly milk bottle, and the next step will be for her to finally sleep all night in her bed without wanting to crawl into bed with us. As much as I am going through my changes, Shirel has so much to deal with, between DC and Barcelona, her daddy traveling back and forth, her mommy being pregnant and telling her all about her baby sister coming soon! I can’t even imagine, but I know this will only make her tougher, though some days my heart aches for her and I just want to keep babying her. If anyone has any insights, or advice feel free to share it with me, I will be more than happy to take it all in. There truly are endless thoughts, experiences, doubts and fears, I would love to put into words, but it feels so overwhelming at times that my brain literally cannot put an order into them. Maybe hormones are to blame? I know our life as a family isn’t the conventional way, we live between two continents, with a toddler and now we are adding another one to the mix. But honestly I wouldn’t want it any other way, I guess I myself am a Nomad from the age of four, add to that that I am a Gemini, who needs constant change and challenge, I thrive on it all. Therefore I would love for my children to have that easy and adaptable personality, travel lightly, be curious, want to experience new places and cultures, not just settle to one way or one norm. We all are so different, and this right now works for our family, and I can’t wait to see how we make it work as a family of four, I consider us very privileged and lucky to be able to lead such a life, and I cannot complain at all but after all I am human and whatever my challenges are might seem a stupidity to others, but I live my life and see it from my spectrum. With this said, I will be posting more about life in Barcelona, travel, about Shirel and me and my pregnancy, and if there is anything in particular you guys would like to see feel free to let me know right here, or on my Instagram!
