I’m 24 weeks and 4 days pregnant. The weeks are FLYING by now. I can’t believe I’m 6 months into this pregnancy. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were welcoming Peyton into our lives… oh wait, it wasn’t long ago at all!
This week has been the roughest yet. I feel like my body is just going to break. Even with going to chiro and PT weekly. It gets worse at night where I feel like my ribs are going to cave in when I’m laying on my side and my hips throb. If I lay on my back for a little bit (which really isn’t recommended at this point anyway) I just straight up can’t breathe! He’s been moving like a crazy baby in there too! He is SO much more active than his sister was.. and much more powerful when he kicks. We got a tough little boy on our hands!
Even though night time is rough for me, my sleep has been pretty decent! If you follow me on Instagram @thetrieflertribe, you know that we started using essential oils. We diffuse Plant Therapy’s “Relax” or Lavender every single night and I sleep SO well. We have been trying to take a more natural approach to life in general for a while. We’ve made some decor changes around the house to reflect that while selling our old things 🙂 It’s getting very homey and earthy in here and we all love it! We’ve been using bamboo toothbrushes to be more environmentally friendly, which I highly recommend! We switched to a more natural deodorant and toothpaste as well. Little changes here and there for a big benefit! If you have any questions on what we’ve been using, feel free to comment or send me a message!
