What it’s Like to be Pregnant – Log #6 {What’s in a name?}

Wow – 22 weeks! While the first trimester was rather tough, I would say time is passing quite quickly now.  Prescription prenatal vitamins (Shoutout to Vitafol!) and a firm bed seemed to solve my complaints and I (almost) feel normal again! Here I am with my Mom on Mother’s Day. It was a special day to take some photos together with my bump showing a bit.  As you can see, my Mom is very small and passed on some great genetics that I hope hold out during my pregnancy.  I’ve tried very hard to eat healthy, but I do still succumb to ice cream, chocolate and the occasional donut. I am human after all! Other rituals include slathering myself with tummy butter or cocoa butter every night to fight potential stretch marks and I play Pandora’s Sleepytime Tunes Children’s radio on my stomach. I’m hoping she will correlate the soothing tunes to being in the womb and I can play the same music after she’s born to calm her. The baby is quite active now and I’ve felt movement every day since 16 weeks.

My Mom has been busy handcrafting some beautiful treasures for our daughter. I can’t wait to photograph her in these adorable headbands, hats and other props. These are very special to us and I am so thankful to have such a kind and caring mother.

Are you curious yet if we determined a name? After looking through thousands (and I mean THOUSANDS) of baby names, my husband and I were finally able to agree on a unique yet elegant name. Abrielle Grace Starr. Abrielle means “God is my Strength”. Grace is a tribute to my Grandma who passed away before I met Aaron. Her favorite song was Amazing Grace. I am so blessed to have amazing friends and family. A client who became a dear friend has always supported me and my business and recently surprised us with this adorable personalized chair. Remington is keeping it warm in the meantime, but I can’t wait to add Abrielle to the fun. Stay tuned for continued updates along my journey! And don’t forget to tell your expectant friends about Barks, Bumps and Babies.
