FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

I can´t believe I am sitting here writting my third trimester post which means my pregnancy is over and we have our sweet baby girl home with us. I have to admit the last trimester and especially the last 6 weeks felt endless. I was counting down the days but somehow they didn´t get less and I was stuck on waiting until she wanted to arrive in this world. 

My feelings

I have felt a lot of ups and downs followed by crying during my third trimester. With the madness of the Coronavirus approaching I was terrified that I had to give birth alone cause husbands would be banned from the delivery room. Luckily it did not came this far although he had to leave after I was brought to my room and could only visit for one hour a day but I only had two days in the hospital so it was okay with me, sad but okay.

My aversions

Haven´t had any aversions in my third trimester.

My cravings

Apples. Every day I am craving apples. I haven´t eaten apples in forever and in fact never liked them. I am also a little allergic to apples (my throat scratches and my lips start to swell) but that had gone as well. I am really curious if it comes back now that the baby is here.

My pregnancy symptoms

I haven´t gotten much more pregnancy sypmtoms other than my gestational diabetes, heart burn and severe rib pain. The bump has gotten so big I don´t find a lot to wear anymore which makes me really sad a lot of days I have to get dressed. Even my maternity pieces are getting pretty tight around the bump. Also sleeping has been really dreaded over here. I have so much pain going on in my hips after lying to long on one side. This is really bad cause I have all the comfortable blankets and pillows but can´t find a comfortable pose. 

What I am looking forward now

Staying home and finding a schedule that works for us for our new everyday life. Days fly by with a newborn. Also I can´t wait till people are allowed to visit again cause of course I want to share our little cutie with our relatives and friends.

I am going to share my birth story within the next weeks but I still have some prepared posts I wanted to share.

Happy Tuesday friends,

hopefully you had a good start into the new week. It is day 11 in home quarantine over here and we are still in a good mood. There are lots of things you can do to distract yourself for most of the day, at least for us. Maybe it is easy to say for me cause we don´t have any kids in the house yet (waiting on baby girl to make here appearance but she for sure is taking her sweet time) but it is still a ton of time to pass without having the opportunity to go anywhere than on a walk.

I wanted to share some activities which we included in our daily schedule so time will pass a little quicker or at all.

What to do at home…

1 // Read – Now is finally the time to dust of all the books in your shelves and finally start reading them or get some off from amazon. I always have a bunch on my wishlist I plan on purchasing from other reviews.

2 // Watch Netflix – The time probably won´t come again were it is acceptable to binge watch for days. There are tons of great shows on Netflix. I have done two round-ups you can read for inspo here and here.

3 // Make a puzzle – We got a 1000 piece puzzle and believe me this task is going to occupy a lot of your time and it is super calming. It has been years since I have done a puzzle and I have to admit I love it.

4 // Play board games – A great way to pass time and interact with your partner but I would only recommend if you aren´t highly competitive cause you at least have to stay inside for another two weeks.

5 // Organize your house – Not everyone´s favorite but definitley one over here. Amazon still ships so you can get all the container or inserts you would need to organize certain rooms/categories in your home like the pantry, your jewelry or beauty corner.

6 // Do online workout classes – Many gyms or/and even dance studios offer online workout classes or dancing lessons. A fun alternative to sporting outdoors and also spend productive time with your significant other. 

7 // Take daily walks – If you are still allowed to do so this is a task which should be done everyday. Getting in fresh air, movements and sunshine is super healthy for your body and mind which is really important at the moment.

8 // Try out new recipes- Definitely another reason for a daily number 7 cause with all that time on hand I have never tried out more different recipes than these days. I already made these delicious flourless peanut butter cookies from The Lemon Blonde and a Dutch Baby (an oven baked pancake) twice.

9 // Do your taxes – If you should get super bored despite all of the activities you can still do your taxes for last year.

I hope you are all staying healthy and as much home as possible so far. It is a difficult and strange time but it will also pass like so many others did before and we hopefully come out smarter and more resilient than before.

Happy Wednesday you guys, 

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is a big day over here today as I am turning 30. I have to admit I wasn´t quite sure what to think about that -not that I could have stopped it in any way – but I think I am fine with it.

In fact there isn´t a thing I could be sad about. I have a great husband, a pretty house, a super cute dog and a baby girl on the way so there isn´t a thing I could wish for more – at least in my personal area.

One thing I got myself for my birthday which also has been a long dream of myself has been a designer bag. To be more exact a Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I have saved up money for this bag for years and managed to get it two days before my 30th birthday although it has been sold out for months prior. I call that very lucky. 

We spent the afternoon in Nuremberg for Starbucks coffee and more Starbucks coffee.That has been my request as our nearest Starbucks coffee shop is about an hour away in every direction. It ended up being a great day having dinner at one of our favorite Greek restaurants and my parents and in-laws. 

I have never been super into celebrating my birthday and really don´t make a fuss about it. Having a nice day and going out for dinner is really enough for me.

Hope you also had a great hump day today. The week is almost over. Just one and a half to go. See you tomorrow.
