Today’s post contains a casual comfy outfit I wore last week. Nothing spectacular really, because lately I just go for easy clothes. I’m about two months pregnant now, and even though my belly hasn’t grown much (like only I can notice a difference), I don’t have the energy or time to dress up or even wear makeup in my free time. Y’all know I’m crazy about fashion (and please don’t be scared, that hasn’t changed), but these days all I crave for are hoodies, sneakers, sweatpants and cardigans. I feel sorry for my boyfriend, I bet he’s missing the girl who was taking hours to get ready… But of course he understands. I think it’s all completely normal.
It’s not easy noticing your body’s changing. It’s not just your belly growing, it’s everything. Your whole world. Like there’s not one second of the day that I don’t think about my baby. My body feels different and my mind too, it’s like you’re a different person. I must say I haven’t felt ever this feminine before, it’s a first. I’m wondering if I will ever be the girl again before my pregnancy. Today I was looking outside the windows at work and I saw 3 women walking around with their babies in their buggys and I was thinking: my god, this will be my future. I’m going to be a mother. My boyfriend and I will enter this new world of parenthood. It’s really exciting.
I’m actually quite happy to have my blog to write about pregnancy. I have started writing a diary for my little one (a brilliant idea from my best friend – she deserves credit for it!) and I feel like this connects me more to him or her. It will be nice to give it to him or her when he or she grows up ❤

You probably guessed it from the title: I am pregnant! My boyfriend and I are over the moon and very excited to start this new chapter in our lives. So for all those women who wonder how it feels to be pregnant: it’s a real rollercoaster! I am very happy of course, every day I fantasize about this small little human growing inside my belly. Dreaming about his or her looks, what he or she will be when he or she grows up. However I am proud, proud to take this new role in the future as mommy. I think it’ll fit me very well.
Currently I am in my seventh week. That means: early. More specifically: HORMONES. This are quite a challenge to deal with. To make things clear, here is a graphic which shows the level of HCG, estorgens and progesterone in the blood during the total 40 weeks of pregnancy.
You can imagine being an absolute bitch during the first weeks (guilty). HCG is the cause of this. You’ll never have this high level of hormones ever in your life, so your body will respond to it in many different ways. You’ll feel different as well. Of course you have the obvious changes: not getting your period, feeling nauseous, headaches, your boobs are big, tired as you just ran a marathon, back pain, swollen belly and a lot of bathroom visits… But there are also other things you will notice. Some women will experience symptoms harder than others, some women won’t even notice they’re pregnant (lucky bastards)! I thought at first I was with the lucky few, but now I notice definitely the typical symptoms and more extra’s: my hair’s an absolute mess (always greasy and itchy and ugh.), my skin’s filled with an overload of acne (my T-zone, my shoulders, my back) and my lips are dry. Anyone having this too? What I read on the internet is that it’s all connected with the high HCG level in your blood and that it’ll disappear once that level has been normalized. Let’s pray!
For the upcoming time I’ll post not as much as I used too, because I don’t have the energy unfortunately. But I’ll definitely keep blogging, adding this motherhood theme to OutfitVanDeDagBlog as well. Stay tuned, maybe you’re in this situation too (or planning to be) and then it’s always great to have each others back and support each other during this time!
Thank you for your attention,
