My First Trimester…

….

Hi you guys, 

after sharing our family photo shoot you all might know about my pregnancy now so I am finally sharing a first trimester update with you guys.

My first trimester

In my opinion I haven´t had the worst first trimester. I have read so many stories of women who felt so so bad and could not eat or drink a thing. I could get through most of the days. It wasn´t enjoyable but possible. 

My feelings

over the moon excited, worried anything could go wrong, overwhelmed on what to change first diet, skincar, products we

My aversions

smell of paper towels (???) makes me retch, salami, scrambled eggs (all eggs in general) and everything to burned

My pregnancy symptoms

nauseous in the mornings and after eating something, the only thing that keeps my steady would be cold lemon juice , super exhausted – everytime it was possible I took a 2 hour nap to be somehow functional and also to overcome another wave of nausea, heartburn, tingling calves, mild cramping

really bad skin – I had bad breakouts but that ended after the first trimester (maybe just of hormonal adjustment)

Gender assumption

I would say girl cause of my bad skin and also because of the heartbeat (156 beats per minute) but there are so many theories out there we´ll see. My assumption is boy (just have a feeling about it) but Florian and my mom say girl. Going to reveal the gender very soon.

What I am looking forward in my second trimester

Having a clearer ultrasound picture were I can recognize parts of the body, feeling better in general, having a little less to worry as the most scary weeks are over, sharing it with everyone who doesn´t know yet.

Starting on the nursery – really can´t wait on that and also of course getting all the cute little baby clothes. 

Another important thing on my hand. Don´t try to eat things you can´t stand. This will make you feel even worse. If you are craving the pizza, the french fries, the burger just eat it. Don´t feel bad that it isn´t salad or you aren´t eating as healthy as can be. Your baby will be fine and you can still eat all the good things when you are out of your first trimester fog. You don´t have to feel guilty at all.

I am going to post my 20 weeks update very soon. I am actually 20 weeks on Thursday. Can´t believe I am going to be halfway through already.

Have a great day you guys and if you are also expecting I would love to hear about your experience.

9 Netflix Shows to watch in the Fall Months….

….

Hello my sweet friends,

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

I am back with my second Netflix post (read about the top shows to watch now here) and I have to admit I never thought I have watched this many shows – 18 in total!!! Sometimes I think that it is insane to spend as much time on there but then I think why not do something you like and most of the time I do some blog work or cleaning or doing laundry or ironing while watching.

Netflix Shows to watch in the Fall Months

Dead to Me // This show was so good I have watched season 1 in one afternoon. I know this seems kind of crazy but Dead to me was awesome. It is about two women who have lost everything and overcome many obstables which makes them best friends that can oversee the huge mistakes the other has made and still stick together. I really really loved it from the beginning to the end and also the two main characters are great.

Pretty Little Liars // PLL was recommended to me by my SIL and I was hooked from episode 1. If you like high school mystery shows with a serious twist and gorgeous outfits this is the one for you. But you have to be quick cause I heard it is going to be removed from Netflix at the end of the year. 

Cable Girls // Found this by accident and loved it right away. It is about four very different women who start working at a telehone company in Madrid and grow close together as they face the unfairly world for women in the 1930´s together. The outfits in this show are adorable and so on point.

Riverdale // The perfect show if you are interested in teenager crime solving episodes with a dark and unnatural twist. It plays in a little American city which is full of secrets and mysteries and in the middle of it four teenagers who are trying to solve every of it. Betty, Veronica, Archy and Jughead all from a different background but precisely because of that so close. Great styles and cute streets plus the ususal high school live make it a great show. 

Dynasty // I had been a little disappointed by this one. I really thought it would be much cooler show but it is all about revenge and people are fighting all the time which is really annoying and exhausting. Although the looks are awesome and the parties to remember. 

What If // Caught my eye because of Reese Witherspoon as main cast. It only is a short show of one season (at least so far) but is was awesome. Filled with so many unforseeable moments and twists, even twists in the twists. Definitely worth a watch. 

Designated Survivor // Has been a great show until the end of season one and then it got super annyoing. The presidents wife died and he had been in a downwards spiral ever since, understandably. But it changed the character so much that it hasn´t been the same fun to watch afterwards. Season 3 is out since a few months but we haven´t bothered to watch. 

You // Because of the huge hype and the mix of actores from Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars we had to watch it anywas. I didn´t like it in anyway. The story of a huge stalker trying to get the girl he is fixated on and getting rid of every one standing in the way. Didn´t like the story nor the characters. Not gonna watch another season.

Sugar Rush // A competitive baking show with amateur bakers that create the most beautiful looking sweet treats. There are three rounds ob gorgeous baking including cupcakes, pastry and a big 3-tiered cake. Definitely worth to watch and I guarantee you want to start baking on your own right after watching.

The top 9 shows on Netflix to watch now…

….

Good morning to all of my binge watching series junkies,

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

since we subscribed to Neflix we haven´t watched normal tv in a very long time and in fact we don´t miss it at all. We can watch more than just one episode if we want and there is no commercial you have to sit out also your program can be paused at every time and finished later. Also you can pick from endless options of movies, shows and so much more. For us it is the invention of a century and we love it dearly.

So for today´s post I am rounding up the top shows on Netflix to watch now. I like to have different kinds of shows on my hands cause when I am at home running around cleaning I can´t give my full attention to a show but still want to be able to watch the next episode and understand what happened without rewatching it. But in the evenings when I finally have time to sit down on my sofa and watch a show or a movie without a break this is the time for more complex shows were you can´t even miss a minute.

Let´s dive into my picks:

Money Heist // We are probably the last ones by now who started with season one but better late than never. I loved it at the beginning but got a little bored halfway and pushed through. We are now at the end of season one and still trapped in the same building. This is going to go on like this for some more episodes. Hopefully the plot is staying exciting and unpredictable.

Grace & Frankie // I adore Jane Fonda. She is a marvellous actress and rocked this show. It is about all of the pains (physically and metally) of getting older plus when your husbands leaves you to marry his lawyer partner after 30 years. Doesn´t happen every day. Give it a try. It is funny and heartwarming and so truthful.

modern family // My alltime favorite show ever. I have probably seen every episode about 5 times by now and still love them all. It shows all the differences and problems a big patchwork family has to overcome with lots of humor.

The Crown // I was curious about this one cause I have read about it so many times and I have to admit I really love watching the show. First of all there is a huge learning factor if you are not familiar with british monarchie and second of all the actors are great to watch. I am currently on season two and not tired of it. The only downside is that I really don´t like Philip. Maybe it is the actor or the way he behaves. I thing he is a huge a**.

Chesapeake Shores // This is another background show I love to watch when I am doing blog work or anything else. It is about five children scattered all over the US coming back to their birth house as life is at its worst for each of them. The grandmother and father who still live their are thrilled to have them all back and help as much as possible. It is such a romantic and dramatic and scenic show. Might be a little to shallow for some but I love it.

Sherlock // We recently started to watch this and are fascinated but this is heavy food. If you want to watch it and know what they are talking about you have to focus a 100 %. They talk really fast and actions also happen very fast so there is no checking your phone or getting something from the kitchen in the meantime.

Friends // An all time classe – this is one of my background shows. I haven´t seen it since it finished on tv which has been quite some time. I have to admit I didn´t have it as this funny on my mind but I love it. It is perfect for doing something besides watching a show.

Queer Eye // I just love the Fab Five, there is nothing more I can see. To see how they change the lifes of people who are stuck in their every day routine and desperately unhappy makes me sob each and every time.

Suits // This is Florian´s pick but I had to add it here because he truly loves this show and get´s excited every time a new season comes out. I have been told it isn´t about the cases and clients primarily. It is about the work at the office and the relations between the other lawyers the staff and other law firms. Although I don´t understand much of it cause I have never seen even one full episode each of them is dressed very sharp.

Phew! That was a long post, so if you are still with me thank you. If not I completely understand. I am sharing another round-up of shows we have already seen probably next month.

Which ones will you be watching next or have you seen them all ?

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
