Kick kick kick! I think my baby is going to be a soccer player ?. It’s such a surreal feeling or experience and almost indescribable. I wish my husband could feel it but when he put his hand on my belly, he can’t yet. I love feeling the baby move or kick because I know that their healthy and just stretching their limbs and it shows me that I have a strong baby! I started feeling the baby kick around 17/18 weeks and it’s made the pregnancy a lot more real now!
One of the best things about the second trimester is that the morning I became 4 months pregnant all the nausea was gone. It was like magic! I got my energy back and was able to leave the house more and didn’t feel as tired as I had felt those first three months.
It’s not all fun & games in the second trimester! Now in my 20th week of pregnancy (5 months), I’m starting to get back pains as well as sharp Ciatica pains shoot down my spine. It’s harder to sleep since you can’t really sleep on your back anymore and can only sleep on your sides. It’s recommended that you sleep on your left side for better blood flow to the baby which can put a lot of pressure on your body.
Thats why I’m starting prenatal yoga today! ? I’m excited to start stretching and moving around again. I’ve been going on short walks but I really need a more intense but safe work out and hopefully I’ll get that today. It’s a great way to get your body ready for delivery and was highly recommended by my doctor.
Get moving! Keep your body in shape so you feel strong and healthy in your third trimester! (I’m talking to myself)
❝On February 1st, 1968, my water broke. We were at Graceland and Elvis was still asleep. Elvis was not a morning person to say the least. He finally awoke and realized the time had come. I found time to do my hair and makeup while he roused the troops. From then on the adventure turns into an episode of I Love Lucy.
“Where’s that box of cigars I bought?”, Elvis asks.
No one knows. No one can find them. Elvis won’t leave without the cigars.
“Who cares about the cigars?”, I ask.
“I do”, he says. “I need to pass out cigars at the hospital”.
Elvis is moving around the house in slow motion while I’m crossing my legs, He finally finds his cigars, but now he’s lulling around the kitchen, getting a bite to eat. Elvis is acting like we’ve all the time in the world. When we finally drive past the Graceland gates, paparazzi are following us. Elvis is amused. But at least we’re speeding ahead. At some point I ask whether we’re headed in the direction of the Baptist Hospital.
“We’re headed towards the Methodist hospital,” says Elvis. “Isn’t that where you’re having the baby?”
“I’m having the baby in this car if we don’t get to the Baptist Hospital.” ❞ —Priscilla Presley

Starting off as a model, and then on to Broadway, only to become one of the most well known actresses of all time, Lucille Ball was one of a kind. In 1962, she became the first woman to run a major television studio, Desilu. She also won four Emmy’s and many other awards throughout her career.
In 1951, at almost 40 years of age, Lucille Ball gave birth to her first child, Lucie Desiree Arnaz. A year and a half later she gave birth to their second child, Desiderio Alberto Arnaz IV, known as Desi Arnaz, jr.
During her pregnancies, CBS, wouldn’t allow the word “pregnant” to be said on TV and used the word, “expecting” instead. Here in the following pictures, Lucille is “expecting”.
