This is motherhood. ✌🏻Getting out of the house to enjoy the beautiful summer evening, even if it means bringing along an extremely tired and fussy babe 😢 I think a 4 year old at the pool tonight, (my dermatologists’ son to be exact) diagnosed what all my boys have been battling the last few weeks — herpangina... have ya ever heard of it!? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I hadn’t, but I think this kid is on to something😆. . Ah! Now cue the good night sleeping vibes for this household because we all need it! 😴

I’m back baby! I’ve been asked so I’m sharing that I am officially back at it. I feel like myself when I have the camera in hand, but also an entirely new person. It is confusing but also makes a ton of sense since the way I look at the world is so different since having a baby. Check out my story for more about this journey!

Cuando él sonríe dormido, despierto, jugando, comiendo, bañándose, cargado, con mamá, con papá, y con las cosas, me hace pensar que lo hacemos bien, que quizás como padres estamos cometiendo muchos errores, pero por ahora para él somos todo lo que necesita y eso lo hace sentirse pleno Siempre he sido pro a una infancia feliz, es la mejor etapa del humano, es la etapa que define el resto de la vida, el porque y el para que tomarás en futuro tus decisiones.. respetemos a los niños, respetemos su infancia, su inocencia, su momento de jugar, de soñar, de creer, de conectar con la esencia del ser humano, siempre lo he hecho, siempre he respetado y siempre he creído que los niños tienen derecho a pensar, a opinar, a desarrollar sus habilidades, a vivir su niñez, y ser felices... que viva la magia en los niños . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #maternidad #kidsfashion #babylove #babys #babyboy #babyfashion #mama #cutebaby #mothershape #prenatal #mamaprimeriza #cuteboys #babyboy💙 #love #babystyle #mama #babybump #bebés #momstylelife #mothershape #kidsfashion #babyinstagram #kids #bebe #baby #babygoatsofinstagram #mamablog #modomamaorgullosa #albumbabycenter #babyvideo #babyvideos

Jul 17, 2019

Did you know that there are some pretty common signs and symptoms of pregnancy? . Now, mind you that everyone is different so…you may have more or less than what I am listing! . Fatigue- Holy smokes, Can anyone say EXHAUSTED? . Your boobs will be electrified. Like ya don’t even want your bra to touch them. Forget your husband! Gah! . Those smells. Oh, those smells. I call it radar nose. It almost did me in with each pregnancy! One pregnancy I couldn’t get enough of Mike’s deodorant. I mean…growl! The other times, I wanted to push him when I smelled it. . Crazy arse dreams! ( I love using that word when I can!) Those hormones keep you jumping! . Insomnia - You can’t stay awake all day, then you lay down at night and BOOM! Wide awake and worrying! . Teenage acne makes it horror return! Sorry! . Cramping & Light Spotting- Cramping and even light spotting can occur around implantation time, which is about 8-9 days after ovulation. . Darkened Aeolas - Another fun thing #weird . Emotional train wreck- If you find yourself crying at every Hallmark movie, then you are probably pregnant. . Headaches- So common as those hormones begin to change! . Basal Body Temp- If you have been tracking your body temp, if you are pregnant, then it won’t drop until the end of the 1st trimester! . Congestion- Nose, and ears can become congested. What joy! . Ok, your turn! What were the symptoms that gave you a hint that you were pregnant?

Motherhood is like having that scary dream of someone chasing you and you try so hard to run away but you can't seem to move. Then you wake up screaming. • Except you don't wake up cause it's not a dream and screaming just helps them find you faster.

Jul 17, 2019

Mamma di una Figlia Femmina. Ambizione di molte Donne, che fremono per condividere con la loro piccola giornate di shopping e argomenti di bellezza. Tanto difficile per alcune Mamme come me. Quelle che già partono in svantaggio perché un buon rapporto con la loro di madre non l'hanno ancora adesso. Quelle che si sentono inadeguate di fronte ad una bambina tanto diversa di personalità. Jacqueline ama guardarmi mentre tento di mettermi un filo di eyeliner, io però in quella stanza vorrei essere sola. Jacqueline mi chiede di sfoggiare vestiti eleganti e tacchi, mentre io opto costantemente per pantaloni e converse. Situazioni come quella di ieri, in cui perdo la pazienza nel metterle lo smalto alle unghie dei piedi. Lei mi guarda, con aria contrariata, esclamando : "Da grande indosserò i tacchi, mi trucchero', avrò sempre le unghie ben curate e non avrò figli". In quell'esatto momento sarei voluta scomparire. Non le ho risposto. La sera l''insonnia è venuta a travarmi. Lo fa spesso. Sarà per aiutarmi a cullare i pensieri pesanti, sarà per far compagnia ai sensi di colpa. Stavo seduta sul divano, vicino a Mike. Una lacrima mi scende. Lui in quell' istante mi sfiora il viso : "Aspetta domani, sarà migliore". Stamattina a svegliarmi un bacio, un abbraccio forte, "Mamma sei la Migliore" e una piccola donnina di fronte a me. Perché in fondo può sempre essere migliore.

I got fed up of being told that I should stay away from highlighting my “problem area” no patterns or god forbid a bit of colour. “Stick to dark colours” because they’re so flattering. It’s time to break those rules and rule your clothes! Everyone has parts of them that they’re self conscious about, you are not alone! Check out my blog (link in bio) for my three tips to rule your clothes 🙌🏼💃 Remember you are fabulous, your body is sensational and you are worthy 🙏🏼💕 With love & gratitude, Ana Louise Bonasera

[YOU CAN

Jul 17, 2019

[YOU CAN'T CHANGE WHO YOU LOVE] Il primo approccio con la vita avviene con l'acqua. Ci accompagnerà tutta la vita, fluido vitale e guaritore ma spesso o la si ama o la si odia. C'é chi beve tanto, chi giusto il necessario per sopravvivere, chi immerso si sente in pace con il mondo e chi vorrebbe scappare anche dal più piccolo specchio d'acqua. Io sono cresciuta cullata dalle onde del mare, gattonavo verso quell'immensità d'acqua e saltavo (incoscientemente) tra onde giganti. E niente, ho programmato per questo elemento qui in foto delle lezioni private di nuoto. L'ho fatto con la speranza nascosta che possa amare l'acqua quanto me. L'ho fatto forse per renderla più simile a me. Perché un errore che non si smette mai di fare é quello di trasformare chi si ama, cercare di plasmarlo, forse perché ci sembra cosí strano amare cosí tanto qualcuno che sia tanto differente. Alla fine ci ho riflettuto, no non proverò a cambiarti ma accoglierò ogni tua differenza con amore. Sarai la parte migliore di me, il mio negativo, il mio riflesso e forse, quando uscirò dal mare starai ad aspettarmi sulla spiaggia, con un asciugamano asciutto e un abbraccio caldo. *** Water will be our element for the whole life. You will love it or hate it. There is the one that feel himself in peace when immersed in water and the one that want to run away only by seeing the sea. I grew up at the seaside, crawling over to the beach and jumping into big waves. I planned for her some swim private lessons. I think for the secret wish of make her like me. This the biggest mistake, when you love somebody don't try to change it. I will love every single differences of you, I promise and maybe when I will get out of the sea You will wait for me to the shore with a dry towel and a warm hug.

✨ DAY 3 CHALLENGE ✨⠀ "Different holes, same action"⠀ ⠀ Now that you understand the concept of opening the hole that your baby will pass out during a vaginal delivery, I want you to take it a step further. 👇🏻⠀ ⠀ Pushing a baby out isn't that unlike having a poop. ⠀ Both require pushing while we open/relax the pelvic floor. 💩⠀ ⠀ What you need to understand is that the hole that baby comes out is connected to the hole that our bowel movements come out of. ⠀ ⠀ When you open one, you open the other. ⠀ ⠀ Next time you sit on the toilet⠀ Try this:⠀ ➡️ Notice the feeling of a slight release of something that allows you to pee or poo. ⠀ ➡️ That is your pelvic floor letting go and opening to allow everything to flow out. ⠀ ➡️ Can you think of opening at the front (vagina) and back (anus) when you go to the bathroom?⠀ ➡️ Do you notice you have to strain to get your pee or poo out? If so, your pelvic floor is a bit confused of what it is supposed to do and it's trying to tighten. If this sounds like you, I would highly suggest seeing a pelvic health physical therapist for personalized guidance. ⠀ ⠀ More details in my stories today for how going to the bathroom is similar to delivering a baby. 👶⠀ ⠀ Make sure to check out my FREE Push Plan Guide for much more detail on how to learn to relax your pelvic floor. ⠀ ⠀ Tag a pregnant friend. 👯⠀ ⠀ ✨ BONUS: Each day you share my daily post in your feed/story, you'll be entered to win the MB postpartum program. Every person that shares will receive 20% off the postpartum program.

My tiny milky mama!🌸 She has been such a blessing in so many ways. This time around I feel confident and capable when it comes to motherhood. I felt pretty lost with Isla and often like I was drowning. I feel relieved that she fit so seamlessly into our lives and thankful that my little girl gang is everything wonderful I could have imagined. This beautiful girl changed my outlook on birth, newborns and more babies in general. So cliche, but #blessed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . . #motherhoodrising #pregnant_world #honestmotherhood #yycmom #bumpwatch #inspirepregnancy #mothershape #yycphotographer #canadiancreatives #babyontheway #stylish_bump #bumpupdate #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodrising #honestmotherhood #babyannouncement #welcometotheworld #tinygirlgang #mygirlgang #inspirepregnancy #fourthtrimester #birthannouncement #newbornlifestyle #newbornbabygirl #yycmoms #yycinfluencer #yycblogger #hellomynameis #newbornbliss

Dear mom Thank you for being my safezone. I know you may want to sleep alone in a good position but I feel so safe sleeping next to you. I know you may want me to play on the floor alone but I love it when you do it with me. I know you may want me to sleep longer but I‘m just so afraid you might not be there - so I have to check. I know you may want me to stop crying sometimes but it‘s the only language I have and I need you to listen. So dear mom I promise I will grow up soon and I won‘t need you that much anymore. So I hope we can cuddle a lot more just a little bit longer.

Today’s Hello/Goodbye is dedicated to GROWTH • • This pot of flowers, for example, took some time and care to put together and when we took it home, no matter how smooth we drove, it still fell over. Because of the fall, I honestly didn’t think it would be able to grow. However, with constant attention, nurturing, and effort it has blossomed. • • Just like with my flowers, no matter how hard I try to get a grip on motherhood, I still might fall and feel like I’ve failed. However, with constant attention, nurturing, and effort, I know I will grow into the mother I want to be for my children. It won’t always be easy, there will be days I feel defeated and worn out. I have already had a fair share of days like this...But as long as I keep trying, there will also be days I feel empowered and exhilarated. Above all else, I know IT WILL ALWAYS BE WORTH IT. • • Swipe —> to see my flowers the day I brought them home. How have you GROWN in your motherhood lately?

3/10: It’s okay to feel selfish when it comes to quality time with your baby and little fam. No one will be upset that you want to spend that time or day ”just-us”. . . I used to be really worried about having enough us-time with my in-laws babysitting Aria, but they’re so respectful of letting us have our us-time after work and on weekends that I don’t even know why I was worried in the first place 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . ***Found this jumpsuit during the zara sale for only $20 last year. Now I always wait until the last week(s) of the sale! So many good finds for under $20 🤩.

If you need me I’ll be right here bouncing on a birthing ball (this helps open up your hips to make room for baby to descend into the pelvis) and drinking some red raspberry leaf tea (which is said to be good for strengthening the uterus in preparation for labor). . After all the craziness of remodeling, moving, unpacking, hosting a birthday party, and trying to get the house set up and in order, and trying not to have a baby in the middle of it all, I . am . tired. It’s been a lot, physically and emotionally. . And now, finally, I feel like I have some breathing room to rest a little before the baby gets here. In these last few days I’m finally getting to sit and enjoy this pregnancy now and am soaking up every last day with this bump. . . Last thing on my to-do list: make some freezer meals to have for the weeks ahead. . Q: What are some of your favorite prep-ahead, crockpot, or freezer meals 🙏👇

Tag a mama & tell her she’s beautiful! Happy #bumpday Bump day is designed to celebrate the bump and all moms worldwide, encouraging everyone to be inspired by their bump and to promote safe and healthy pregnancies along with deliveries and after childbirth. To save a life. Awareness. . . I love this because there is no shame. I love that all of the BIG companies and pregnancy app companies GET IT, that they understand and want to provide a supportive encouraging environment to us in the mom community! I can’t tell you how many reached out to me here on IG asking and reminding me to post my bump on today. Even in the medical field. . . This is personal for me as I am on one of my biggest journeys/quest to carry full on, after a loss. To deliver our rainbow baby safely and in the most healthy way. I encourage you mamas and poppas out there that you have a wonderful support family here and to surround yourself with all the love and positivity possible. Take advantage of all the knowledge and resources available. Lastly, I’m prayerful for you as i know you have been for me.

Jul 16, 2019

Rosie’s face when I told her she’s a big girl now and it’s time to start trying new foods - that she won’t be needing just mommy’s milk anymore. . Where does time go?! 😭 . Breastfeeding was easier and harder in some ways this time around. With Ezra, we initially struggled for 3 weeks (cup-fed, syringe-fed, nipple shield due to latching issues), but after he had the hang of it; he breastfed beautifully. He even took a bottle of breastmilk easily which was great when I needed a bit of time for myself. Our breastfeeding journey ended when he was 13 months and I was pregnant with Rosie. The nausea on top of breastfeeding was making me too weak and I grieved over the fact that I had to stop. I missed it. . With Rosie, she initially breastfed very well - latched on 30 minutes after birth and seemed to know what she was doing. However, as my milk came in, her latch became “clicky” as she was having a hard time dealing with my forceful letdown. I tried every position, pumping a bit before feeds, went to see lactation consultants, etc - but the “click” remained. It settled when she was about 3.5 months. Rosie also hates taking bottles - and when she does take them, they need to be very warm - which made it a bit harder on me this time around. But, here we are - 6 months old and we’re still going strong. . In both cases, we persevered and worked hard at our breastfeeding journey. Sometimes, people think that breastfeeding will come naturally - most of the time it doesn’t. It presents itself with challenges and you need to be surrounded by supportive people whom will guide and encourage you as needed (for me, this was my husband). You need to be determined to make this work because it’s so easy to give up as things become difficult. . Breastfeeding wasn’t/isn’t easy but I wouldn’t change anything from our journey. It’s been worth every sore nipple, every anxious moment, every engorgement and every leak; because every time your baby looks up at you when they’re feeding - your heart swells with pride - that your perseverance definitely paid off. You got ‘dis! . If I can do it, you can do it! . 🤱

Every ANGLE is different. ⁣ Every FILTER is different ⁣ ⁣ Your bump is beautiful. Flaunt it. Take all the photos. Post them. You are creating a little human and that’s what’s important here. Don’t compare yourself to others or be ashamed of your bump, momma. 🤰🏻💗💙⁣ #21weekspregnant #babynumber2 #BabyAlvirde2 #bumpie

Il mondo non è quello che vorrei per te..spero che un giorno tu potrai renderlo migliore. Ci sono così tante cose che vorrei non vedessi mai..ma è così che si diventa grandi.. 😔 Vorrei proteggerti da tutto..ma posso solo insegnarti quello che so è sperare che sia sufficiente. Spero che un giorno queste lotte politiche..questo falso perbenismo..queste ipocrisie scompaiano e che tu..come tanti altri bambini.. possiate vivere sereni. Non ti mentiró mai su come la penso su certe cose e spero che tu possa, quando ne avrai la giusta età, razionalizzarle e renderle tue. Diventare grandi oggi non è il massimo..ma con un po di impegno si può migliorare tutto! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #still_life_mood #still_life_gallery #mothershape #followme #babyboy #instababy #instababyboy #instagram #instamamma #instamoment #mammeitaliane #momgoals #momlife #mamme #mammeblogger #lifestyleblog #thewomoms #50sfumaturedimamma #vitadamamma #mamxmam #followme #mammeoggi #kidsofinstagram #dailymotherhood #documentingmotherhood #mumlifestyle #teammotherly #uniteinmotherhood

𝕃𝕦𝕘𝕝𝕚𝕠 𝟚𝟘𝟙𝟠. Prima di tutto sono rimasta incinta, poi mi sono accorta che non avevo la più pallida idea di quello che mi aspettava… Quante di voi si sono sommerse di libri da leggere in gravidanza? Io li ho abbandonati subito dopo aver letto cose del tipo “𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪 𝘪𝘯 𝘢𝘤𝘲𝘶𝘢 𝘤𝘰𝘯 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘱𝘪𝘢” o “𝘣𝘦𝘯𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘶𝘵𝘢 𝘯𝘦𝘭𝘭'𝘰𝘵𝘵𝘢𝘷𝘢 𝘴𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘢 𝘥𝘪 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘻𝘢, 𝘰𝘳𝘢 𝘪𝘭 𝘧𝘦𝘵𝘰 è 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘴𝘴𝘰 𝘲𝘶𝘢𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘶𝘯'𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘥𝘦”🥜 . A me personalmente non è mai piaciuto paragonare Loris alla frutta..mi stavo quasi convincendo che avrei partorito un frutto gigante.. e poi la mia pancia è esplosa…e le dimensioni non tornavano.. che frutto esiste più grande di un’anguria per paragonarlo a Loris? 🍈🍉🍈 . Ho sempre pensato che essere #incita avrebbe voluto dire essere me stessa con una bella pancia gonfia..Non mi aveva nemmeno sfiorato l’idea che sarei potuta diventare gonfia a tal punto che non riuscivo a piegarmi per allacciare le scarpe..😪😳 Pensavo: la mia vita cambierà solo dopo il parto..insomma…😅non proprio!! . Non avevo fatto i conti con il corpo che prende il sopravvento! 🤦🏻‍♀️ La mia mente era h24 concentrata sul bambino… Sarò una brava mamma? Starà bene? E se dalle ecografie non vedono che qualcosa non va? Come farò a gestire tutto? Perché le mie caviglie di gonfiano e si sgonfiano a loro piacimento? Dove cavolo ho messo il portafoglio? Cosa ci fa il mio abbonamento del treno nel frigo? L’ho messo io? E’ vero che alcune creme possono provocare l’aborto o portare a malformazioni del feto? Le creme che ho usato fin’ora avranno fatto danni? Perché non sento il bambino muoversi? Perché continua a muoversi così tanto? Come faccio a dire ai colleghi che non mi interessa più fare carriera? Come faccio a riprendere in mano il lavoro che adoro se devo dare priorità al piccolo? Se nascerà prematuro sopravvivrà? Etc…etc… 𝗰𝗵𝗶 𝗱𝗶 𝘃𝗼𝗶 𝗻𝗼𝗻 𝘀𝗶 è 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗮 𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗹𝗼 𝘂𝗻𝗮 𝗱𝗶 𝗾𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗲? Poi, quando è arrivato Loris ho incominciato a pormi delle domande sul serio.. #still_life_mood #still_life_gallery #mothershape #followme #babyboy #instababy #instababyboy #instagram

🌯😋🌯 ℙ𝕀𝔸𝔻𝕀ℕ𝔸 🌯😋🌯 Oggi abbiamo sperimentato il pranzo fuori casa senza portare pappa...pappine..pappotte.. comodo? siiiiiiii 😍 Sono ancora molto in ansia e preoccupata che si soffochi con i primi cibi "solidi" e sopratutto maneggiati dalle sue manine cicciotte e ingorde 😅 quindi vado cauta e gli spezzo io tutto..ma per il momento Loris si sta mostrando bravissimo con i suoi 8 denti e mezzo mastica come se ne avesse 84 😂 ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ #babyboy #foodlover #mammeitaliane #instamamme #fridaymood #pappa #oneyearold #mamme #autosvezzamento #growingup #babylove #50sfumaturedimamma #mammeinrete #vitadamamma #thewomoms #italianmomstyle #instamoment #instababy #proudmom #foodaddict #motherhood #instalove #teammotherly #uniteinmotherhood #inspiremyinstagram #notonlymama #nothingisordinary #still_life_mood #still_life_gallery #mothershape
