Never my intention

I’m sitting here on the floor waiting for my new video to upload to youtube. It’s challenging having both a youtube channel and a blog to maintain because I feel like one or the other get forgotten, but that’s never my intention.

I really wanted to step back in Ramadan and not post anything meaningless. But now that we’re back in our everyday lifestyle it’s time to get back into some old routines as well. Leave your bad habits behind and focus on the positive. Take with everything good you’ve learned this Ramadan and implement it in your daily life.

For me that is working out and eating regularly and more healthy again. I usually don’t crave any sweets anyway, but I’ve missed the working out part. I’m already sore from yesterdays leg workout. I also want to make more videos but I won’t promise anything I can’t keep. Other than that there are some projects I’m working on here at home that I’ll hopefully be able to share when they are done.

Pregnancy summary

I really want to take a moment and look back at the pregnancy I’ve had. This was my first one and there something special about all firsts I think. You experience everything with new and curious eyes. You’ll wonder if things are normal because this new journey you’ll about to go on hasn’t been a reality for you. So this is a summary of my 38 week long pregnancy.


Week 3: We’ve got a positive pregnancy test on the 18th of May 2016.
Week 6: Feeling very nauseated – and suddenly the smell and taste of coffee is disgusting.
Week 8: Feeling nauseated every single day and spending my 3 week holiday at home on the couch watching reruns of old shows. Dozing off in the middle of the day because of tiredness.

Week 13: Finally got the nerve to tell my mum about her first grandchild.
Week 14: And then also told my dad about his first grandchild.
Week 16: Told my boss at work that I was expecting, and suddenly more and more people  around me knew about my little secret I’ve been carrying around
Week 17: Felt babys first tiny movements.
Week 18: Ultrasound! We could finally find out the sex of the baby and if everything is ok.
Week 19: First stranger, a customer at work, asked if I was pregnant.
Week 20: My belly is growing real fast now. Starting to get pains on the right side of my leg. And suddenly I can’t hold my bladder for as long as I used to.
Week 21: Bought my first ‘mummy’-shirt and baby clothes with my cousin.
Week 23: Felt babys first real kick. Sudden nausea also occurs, and I’m still tired but not as much as the first trimester.
