This pregnancy is a special moment for you and your parents. It is a moment for them to see you as parents and experience the joys seeing you experience the joy they had when they raised you. img_7123

Its a moment for them to look at you through new eyes . Possibly the moment where they truly realize you are now the “Parent” and not only their child. This is when they have the opportunity and honor to be proud of you being a mother /father and not only their child.

This is also the time were they can relax with the child raising and focus on the Loving and the Spoiling. “Grandma/Grandpa is my name and Spoiling is my Game ” .

Make the moment you tell your parents you are pregnant special. Do not be surprise if they have guessed it already 🙂 (Parents have an uncanny ability to do that).

Today during #Pregnancy Love Month:

Celebrate the moment you tell your parents you are having a baby !

Please share how you told your parents you were pregnant and their reactions.

Pregnancy Love : #3:First Baby’s Flutter

Focusing on #Pregnancy Love, I want to take a moment to celebrate 

Feeling  your

Baby’s

First Flutter

 

Your baby’s first flutter you feel is a moment to be celebrated this month.

That first flutter may leave you wondering : Is it gas? A twinge? Movement? Your imagination? Don’t worry moms , that flutter will soon turn into kicks and rolls – you may even be able to tell if its is a foot or hand 🙂

First time moms may feel this movement the first time around 18  to 20 weeks gestation. While moms-to-be again may feel this movement earlier(https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/259724-overview#a2).

(DISCLAIMER: Please speak with your doctor about all concerns/questions regarding what is normal for your pregnancy).

This is a wonderful part of pregnancy to celebrate during # Pregnancy Love Month. That first felt baby movement is a moment you will always remember. From that moment on you will not only know your little one is inside, you will also feel your baby move.

Enjoy the moment ,  Enjoy the journey , Enjoy pregnancy

as you celebrate

#Pregnancy Love

I want to celebrate 2/5/2018 day of #Pregnancy Love with the moment you shared your pregnancy news with the dad-to-be

Did you take the pregnancy test with your partner? Or did you take the test alone and get to share the exciting news ?

This moment will be in your memories forever- the moment you realize 2 will become a family of 3 or more.

You can be creative, be simple, be fun, but most importantly – Be you!

(1) Be Creative

February : Pregnancy Love Month

February : The Love Month

Pregnancy is beautiful, amazing, miraculous. What better time to celebate the Miracle of life than during the Month of Love: February!

The Month of February is a fun time to celebrate everything there is to Love about Pregnancy. Often we hear about the Pregnancy Woes, complications, pains, aches and discomforts. ( All of which are true.)

                      Sometimes you just need to nap, and that is 100% okay.

However, while the pregnancy journey is not always smooth and easy- it is definitely worth it!

Therefore, during this Month of Love, I want to Focus on the Lovely aspects of Pregnancy. I’ll attempt to write a post a day that focuses on one aspect of Joyfully being pregnant, in hopes to inspire , encourage, give hope and encourage all the #momtobe and #momtobeagain to enjoy this season of pregnancy.

Welcome Everyone to the Month of #Pregnancy Love
