Wow, it’s been a while since my last life update. It’s been such a busy and exciting year so far, so I feel like time is literally flying by. I am currently 28 weeks pregnant, and although it feels like only yesterday that I found out I’m pregnant, I am also struggling to believe I still have another 3 months to go!
Pregnancy has been such a whirlwind. It’s crazy how one week I a feeling amazing with loads of energy, exercising and feeling completely on top of all my work, then the next I am depleted of energy, emotional as anything and wanting to be a couch potato. As someone who is usually go-go-go, I have really had to tune in and listen to my body and give in to what it needs. As I begin my 3rd trimester I am thankful to be feeling the best i’ve felt all pregnancy. Following on from the 7 day ab challenge I seem to be finding a good rhythm, feeing much more motivated and feeling more myself everyday. Overall, I absolutely love being pregnant (even though my back hurts 24/7 and I can barely sleep, haha).
I’ve finally started buying some items for the little babe and am so excited; it’s starting to make it all feel real! I purchased the cutest cot from Sacred Bundle that arrives in a few weeks and was very kindly gifted my dream pram, the UPPA baby vista from CoolKidz! We set it up last weekend, fair to say Freddie was VERY intrigued/confused. I am loving getting the nursery together, so be sure to follow my social as I’ll post some updates there!
My belly is growing bigger by the day. Although I am in complete awe of my body and admiring my growing belly that I have longed for, for the past two years, I do, at times, have moments of fearing the unknown surrounding these body changes. I never thought or expected to feel this way, so I am trying to be kind to myself and allowing space to remind myself that this is a normal emotion to go through during pregnancy. I have been inundated with lovely and supporting messages from so many people on social media saying they feel the same way, and it’s nice to know I am not alone.
Life overall is feeling really exciting but also weirdly calm at the same time. Work is going great, and we have so many exciting things in the works for Our Pilates; Our retreat at Jackalope in May, our new incredible prenatal and postnatal programs that are launching soon and more. I have decided to take a slight pause on my other business Le Mon so I can enjoy this stage of my life with less stress. I feel like my body is craving stability, clarity and slowness and adding Le Mon into the mix really throws everything off balance. I know how much work it takes to get things moving, and I just don’t have the time like I used to, and I know that my energy will be even more limited once my little babe is here in a few months. It’s sad to pause, but I know it’s the right thing to do for my little family and me.
At the moment, my weekends are spent relaxing at home with Myles and Fred, going out for dinners or getting takeaway and watching the footy. Weekdays are spent on my laptop, running around to and from appointments, and if we're being honesy, a teeny bit of online shopping for baby things! Weeknights are spent at home making yummy dinners, watching a series in bed by 7:00 pm (and nope, i’m not exaggerating here, haha). I am in a really good place at the moment; although there is so much unknown about what the next few months have in store, I feel as though I’m in a really good place emotionally to take it all on!
Well thats my life in a nutshell haha. Thank you all so much for your ongoing support of Our Pilates; Hannah and I literally pinch ourselves every day that we get to connect with so many of you.
I hope you are feeling happy and well.
Lots of love, Brooke Pitt x
