As my tummy grows rounder, linea nigra vivid I stay ready.
Anticipating the final days, hours & seconds..
What is Linea Nigra –
” Linea nigra (Latin for “black line”) is a dark vertical line that appears on the abdomen in about three quarters of all pregnancies. The brownish streak is usually about a centimeter in width. The line runs vertically along the midline of the abdomen from the pubis to the umbilicus, but can also run from the pubis to the top of the abdomen. Linea nigra is due to increased melanocyte-stimulating hormone made by the placenta, which also causes melasma and darkened nipples.
Fair-skinned women show this phenomenon less often than women with darker pigmentation. Linea nigra typically disappears within a few months after delivery. “
I stay mindful of this baby I bare within my body and share a bond, explainable and a feeling of excitement to met this human is insane.
Past the half way line of the pregnancy I am dying to see my baby, her eyes, lips and every character with detail.
I am still very grateful to say no illness and everything very normal as far a doctors results go, the odd uncomfortable sleeping position, hip and back pain I completely expected, its all smooth sailing this far.
With a new environment we have, I am excited to start the baby room within the next month or so, living in flat shoes and trainers, refusing to buy maternity clothes I stand strong. Bring on the next 111 days before due date.
LETS DO THIS, Nevada..
I cant express how much you mean to me
the feelings are deeper and true
A man who always stands by me
I know you will See this through.
To the end of life, when my soul is free of this body
I know you’ll still be with me, if anybody
Forgiving of my mistakes
I’ll do anything it takes.
Core for all – Oh man how I miss core exercises of any shape or form, it is hard for me not to do what I used to in the gym being pregnant and then to also find motivation, damn its pretty challenging I must admit. It is a work out in its self adjusting to baring a child, the body is pretty amazing, I’m sore on most days regardless of a workout so this is doing me good for now..
I have always been a heavy lifter, maxing out was my thing, you know “sweating like a man type of gal”! Whether it was Crossfit, A Body building regime, MMA training, yoga, Zumba man my list is extensive and I will always be willing to try something new to challenge myself.. I love that shit… If it doesn’t hurt it ain’t good enough – For me that is, If I ain’t sore- it just didn’t cut it.. My mentality, My Flow.
It is always vital to know what works for you and the things you hate most, you need to push through and do them (same applies with food), that is when you grow and your body develops, usually when least expected –
You hate doing core? Do it Anyway, this wont mean you have instant Abs either of course, you eat right for abs and do high interval training combined with core conditioning for maximum results.
Stay consistent to reach your Goals.
Basic finisher here:
- Toe touches
- Ankle taps
- Crunch (legs elevated)
25 reps, 5 sets – 30 second rest between sets if need be.
Tips: exhale on execution, always keep a neutral spine, stay tight in the back and core at all times stay activated, do not over tense your neck, if it hurts have a rest, remember technique over everything!
If your feeling super advanced you can practice your handstands against all wall, be careful here locking elbow and keeping tight all through is very important.
100 repetitions minimum as a finisher after any work out.
Then my Favorite a good stretch, yoga style poses here.
- Child’s Pose – toes touching, knees on the ground spread as far apart as you can, hands straight out in from of you, reaching out as far as possible.
- Down ward facing dog – on all fours, raise Ur hips up to the sky, planting your palms down into the earth, drop your head down and draw your chin in towards your chest
- The cobra – lay facing down, plant your hands on the floor and look up to the sky

For Real – I’ve never been the biggest Rap fan, this man here was beyond his ability to Rap, I loved Pac for his poetic ability, his flowing words with such meaning that gave you gossies from deep within, always intriguing.
How someone could portray to be so “gangsta” and really behold some serious intelligence, skill, confusion, hate, love and a warm nature . Then what is a “gangsta” are we all gangsta..
I believe he often put on a front, he was angry at the world, racism he had to face & the oppression of his mother.
And so the story goes on…. Here is a few I keep close…
- Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.
Everybody’s at war with different things…I’m at war with my own heart sometimes.
- AND 2MORROW
Today is filled with anger
fuelled with hidden hate
scared of being outcast
afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies
which no one wants 2 face
nightmares 2 humanities
and morally disgraced
Tonight is filled with rage
violence in the air
children bred with ruthlessness because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down
but the pressure never stops
knowing at my sanity
content when I am dropped
But 2morrow I c change
a chance 2 build a new
Built on spirit intent of Heart
and ideals based on truth
and tomorrow I wake with second wind
and strong because of pride
2 know I fought with all my heart 2 keep my
- Ambition over Adversity
Take one’s adversity
Learn from their misfortune
Learn from their pain
Believe in something
Believe in yourself
Turn adversity into ambition
Now blossom into wealth
LIFE ….. AHHHHHHHHH
THANK YOU PAC…. xxx

Currently at the 14 week mark of pregnancy, food is everything, mood swings are on an all time high, totally on point! (shout out to my husband for dealing with me) I feel pretty good most days, no sickness at all just fatigue and finding a comfy position at bed time can be a pain.Working, training and trying to eat as well as possible but lets face it I’m gonna attend to these cravings and this raging hunger inside me.
Everyday my body changes a little bit more, I can swear I could see my belly moving from our little baby inside, just the other night, knowing there is so much more to come……
I never thought this could be such a special, rather extraordinary experience, I was the person that always said I wont get married or have kids, look at me now.. Just the thought of knowing you are capable of having life inside you, that you created with the love of your spouse, to bare a little human inside of you for 9 months, leaves me breathless, literally!
ITS JUST SO AMAZING!!
So Funny how time and people can change your way of thought and life …
I can say thought, this by far exceeds my achievement of competing with the satisfaction of knowing exactly what my body is capable of, what I need to do to maintain and control my self best as possible to be best the best version on me.
I love this experience so far, I am in love with my baby belly and soooooo grateful for my smooth transition thus far.
God is good xx

Where ever this road will lead our souls, we are brave, courageous, the strength deeper then we can believe.
Our memories created, depth of truths and sorrows..
Love the now and your plans to make dreams happen set in stone.
To lead a life that’s yours, created through thoughts and actions.
The journey will bring the deepest satisfaction, it is the real success, the end result is just another destination that can be altered along the way.
The one step is a journey on its own, each one you take, you made it and its just perfect that way.
“Today & Always I am powerful beyond my deepest beliefs,
I control the things I create and my faith in the good is all I see.
Every day is brand new, I live in the present and fear is non-existent. “
