Nesting madness!


photo5First of all before starting this post I want to say “HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAYATHRI!!!!” hope you are enjoying your birthday out at sea flaca!!! ❤

So by now a lot of people know that I’m pregnant I just entered  6 month of pregnancy and 3 to go!

It has been a little adventure for sure, the first 3-4 months where up and down. I got sick by all kinds of different smells, puked just a handfull of times, but made funny noises thinking I was going to all the time.

By this time we were in French Polynesia so there we got really good medical attention. I did blood tests and ultrasounds every month.

I think I had a real good first month, not that sick as a lot of other pregnant mommy’s.

Then we sailed to Kiritimati, and well I have been to two ultrasounds, and it’s been good. it’s much more simple here, and they don’t do the blood test or anything. But at least i know that the baby is fine!

So the last 2 month i have been freaking a little because I had so many questions about labor, pregnancy, things we need when the baby is born, ect. And as i told you in the previous blog-post I posted, we met this awesome family on a catamaran named “TRIBE”. The mom was a midwife and the dad a pediatrician! They helped us a lot and answered all my questions! As well as my girlfriends that have had baby’s that answered a lot of my emails!! THANK YOU!! 😀

So now I’ve been much much calmer!

I do yoga almost everyday, excesses my breathing and i have gone in to a NESTING period!

I been talking to my sister a lot to try to figure out what i need to have for the baby when it’s born and two things came talking to her and my other friends. A little bed of some kind, and a good thing to have is a boppy-pillow ( breastfeeding pillow) and a carrier.

I started googling these things and  I found a super sweet carrier, that i asked Dallas to bring for us as he is coming to visit! But the pillow and the baby nest i thought that I could sew it myself! The only thing is that i don’t have a sewing machine!

I found good sites where they showed how to make this two things and we went in to town and I found the nicest fabric!!! I was going to do this!photo4photo7photo6

I started by doing the patterns and then the projects began!!!

I been so hypnotized by sewing and it’s made me calm and relaxed that i cant stop! little bit like meditation. As soon as i was done with the boppy-pillow i wanted to start with the baby-nest!

It’s been a lot of “AJ” and “Ohoooo” when i pricked myself with the needle, but totally worth it!!

It took me around a week to finish both of them! And I feel like a proud Mami!! That i have made my baby’s first bed and a pillow that i am probably going to use a lot!!! 😀

And here is the end result!!IMG_3839photo1 (1)IMG_3838photo2

Maybe some of you can give me more tips of what i can make…as i said… still have 3 months         to gooooo…..
