Hi! I'm Amie Mariana

Welcome to "Curate Wellness" my special little corner of the world. I created this space to share my ongoing quest for whole-life wellness with you. As an adopted child, I've been searching for meaning & purpose in everything I do for as long as I can remember. This space is my journey, and also my personal accountability. 

Sharing life and adding value to the lives of others is what makes me tick. It puts a smile on my face and reminds me that life is most beautiful when shared.

Thank you for joining me in this journey. Let's do this together!I truly believe that we are the curators of our own wellness, and it's much more fun to curate and cultivate as a community! 

Stop by and say hi on my social media accounts.

My Third Trimester :: Week 28-40

My Third Trimester :: Week 28-40

thirdtrimester

Weight Gain: Weight gain and bloating...just over here trying not to feel chubby! 

Stretch Marks: Yes, I have earned my battle scars. 

Maternity Clothes: Maternity clothes and Matt's comfy clothes. Whatever feels best in the moment.

Symptoms: Back pain, swelling, heartburn, headaches, cramping, frequent washroom trips, and of course Braxton Hicks contractions. 

Sleep: On and off. Some nights I have insomnia and some nights I am thankful to sleep sound. 

Best Moments: My beautiful baby shower, going to an ultrasound appointment with my dad, and moving to an amazing new home! 

Worst Moments: Settling and unpacking from the move. Not having enough energy to get things done. 

Missing: I don't really miss much from pre-pregnancy at this point because I feel like i've been pregnant forever! 

Movement: Our little boy loves to hiccup. I can usually rely on feeling him do this at least 3-4 times a day along with his regular movements. He's quite the character already!! 

Making Me Sick: Nothing really. 

Gender: Still a boy!  

Labor Signs: Braxton Hicks and cramping galore. We've had a few close calls but he's not quite ready to come out. Due date is still May 26th but I will be induced on the 19th depending on his growth patterns. Last Monday baby was 5lbs and 10oz on the ultrasound. 

Popped Belly Button: Still normal! 

Wedding Rings On or Off: Still off. 

Mood(s): Changes frequently. I just want to nest and be with Matt and Whiskey (the dog not the drink) as much as possible. I'm very protective of my home, my baby + husband, my routine, and anything else. Mama bear mode has commenced. 

Looking Forward to: BIRTH! Glorious glorious birth! 

I really like you!

I really like you!
