I was surprised with a cute visit today from a friend Nat who is also expecting 💕 Just being able to see someone in the flesh, rub her tummy, hear how incredible her journey has been so far, how healthy baby is & all the fun talk about kicks, food, names etc was beautiful. This is Nat's 3rd pregnancy so she had a lot of great advice to share ☺️ It's very clear in this photo just how tall I am, I mean my chin sits above Nat's head lol We worked out that we are 4 weeks apart, so our little ones will be the same age, same grade at school and potential best buds hehehehe..... Nat's due start of March & I'm due end of March. Each women carries different and this most certainly doesn't mean one is doing something wrong or not healthy etc. We both have healthy growing babies & we both have had incredible pregnancies so far, feeling amazing & full of energy. #21.5weeks #expecting #march2016 #pregnant #love #happiness #Babyduncan
Könntet ihr auf Anhieb sagen, wie weit diese beiden schwangeren Frauen zeitlich auseinander sind? Wir nicht! Beziehungsweise: Wir würden uns sehr verschätzen. Denn: Die beiden trennen nur vier Schwangerschaftswochen.
Ein eindeutiges Beweisfoto, wie unterschiedlich Schwangerschaften aussehen können: Fitness-Trainerin Chontel Duncan, links im Bild, ist Fitness-Model und auf der Aufnahme in der 21. Schwangerschaftswoche. Ihre Freundin Nat sieht dagegen schon wesentlich schwangerer aus: Obwohl sie in der 25. Woche ist, und damit nur vier Wochen weiter, ist ihr Baby-Bäuchlein sehr viel ausgeprägter.
Das Bild stammt aus dem vergangenen November, beide Frauen sind für März ausgerechnet - Nat Anfang und Chontel Ende des Monats.

BUMP UPDATE 🍼 37 weeks.... Only 21 days to go 🙈 Well well Little D you have caused quiet a commotion, you are most certainly making your entrance into this world noticeable. But seriously "what a week" 😳 did not expect that, can not believe how many people are apparently doctors, how easily people can slam a pregnant women, but more importantly how INCREDIBLE absolute strangers are. I don't think there are any words that could describe just how humbled I am to see absolute strangers support my lifestyle, pregnancy, my unborn child & give me the respect I think I deserve for putting in the effort to maintain my habits whilst pregnant. For a women to consider falling pregnant is a HUGE decision it's a permanent decision, not just the physical demands, the risk, but you're preparing to sacrifice your very being to be this little persons everything for as long as you live. Then there's conceiving, you couldn't feel more pressure if you tried, it's extremely difficult for so many women, I am extremely grateful I fell first go, but I am close to so many whom have struggled greatly. Now you're pregnant the physical changes, the tests & the realisation that it's happening is prominent. What if you're told at 12 weeks your child is at great risk or what if you miscarry 😕 it's emotionally hectic!!!! You get through all that & you know that from here on out what you feel emotionally the baby will feel, you know what you eat the baby will eat & you know that your physical health will impact the babies as he/she develops within. You make everyday the best so at the end of the journey you can hold your head high I know that you brought this little person up the best possible way you could... You realise that school did NOT set you up to understand child birth or how to prepare for a child, so you walk into this overwhelming world of preparing for parenthood. So much to learn... 😩 BUT wait then there's critics, well in my case a lot of them. They pick and pull you apart, I had ppl at the beginning excited to see me blow out, see me quit at my career because apparently it's not possible to do both...

Inzwischen ist Chontel übrigens in der 37. Woche und hat nur noch knapp drei Wochen bis zur Entbindung. Und jetzt ist auch bei ihr deutlich zu sehen, dass neues Leben in ihr heranwächst. Aber auch dieses Bild zeigt: Schwangerschaften sehen eben nicht bei allen Frauen gleich aus...
+ Update + Inzwischen haben die beiden ihre Babys bekommen - schau mal hier:
