Baby Bump + Family

So, I wasn’t planning on doing maternity pictures with this last pregnancy. I mean, I was flying by the seat of my pants and taking life one day at a time. And planning a maternity shoot sounded exhausting to my pregnant self (dramatic much? 😉 )But then my cute friend Emily said to me, “What other time in your life will you have the perfect excuse to get dolled up and look like a princess?!” SOLD. Count me in. And especially since I knew this sweet bump was my last, a photo would literally include all my 4 babies. I’ll be totally honest, I also knew I would NEVER miss this pregnancy belly (HA!) but I really wanted it documented since the belly would be forever expired. HALLELUJAH! Just give me all the babies.

Diastasis Recti + Pregnancy

Hey friends! Hope you’re having a lovely week! I celebrated my birthday yesterday with a full day of jammies, Torchy’s Tacos, the prettiest bouquet of ivory flowers from my Loverbuns, an evening of shoe shopping, and a Chilis Molten Lava cake to-go (because my nursing body was basically exploding to see baby Avery). THANKS for all the sweet birthday wishes yesterday over on Instagram. I read through every message and it was the sweetest cherry on top!

Alright, lets talk about the ‘mummy tummy’… the ‘gap’… or in other words Diastasis Recti. I receive tons of messages about how to prevent and heal Diastasis Recti (DR). In this post, I’ll share my experience with what I did during my 3rd pregnancy to protect my DR from worsening and what I’m currently doing now that I’m 4 weeks post-partum. **Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor! Married to a hot one, but I’m no doctor!**

Hello World!

Hi! I finally did it, y’all. I created this small corner of the Internet in hopes of sharing my passions on mothering, fitness, fashion, and everything in between. What fanned the flame to begin blogging was my message box in Instagram always overflowing with questions regarding exercising during and after pregnancy, healthy diets, baby schedules, dressing a baby bump, hair tutorials, etc. Since Instagram doesn’t have enough caption space for all of my chatter, Hello Ivory Rose was born.
