Four weeks ago I married the greatest men that I met in my life and now I can call him my husband. It was a wonderful day. Everything was perfect. Celebrating our wedding with family and friends. My (step)mom married us. It was always my dream that she did that and that dream came true.
The day was so relax. We had a tear and a laugh. Looking back at that day, it still feels like a dream. But a really good dream. There is nothing that I want to change. It was perfect for us. Our day, our dream, our love!
We married in a small and one of the oldest churches in our area and we celebrated our wedding at the beachclub in our town.
More pictures soon!

Best moment this week: Having my energy back. Right now I'm back on the energy that I had this pregnancy. Because of the more energy, I was more active than the weeks before.
Miss anything? Shopping for clothes. I tried it last week, but I wasn't feeling comfortable enough.
Movement: Yes, when Erik and I watched a movie and I was lying in his arm, I felt a small kick. The first time that I felt the baby was around 13 weeks and I feel small movements since 16 weeks.

Here are the recent updates from my Instagram account. I didn't update much, because of the pregnancy morning (all day) sickness I had. Worst two months, but I survived it. I'm planning on to update my instagram regularly from now on.
Well, let me just drop the big news right away: I'M PREGNANT! Currently I'm 17 weeks and my due date is 2 january 2016. We are going to have a winter child.
I'm so happy and feeling blessed with this little miracle growing inside me. I never suspected that I will get pregnant that soon. I stopped with birth control after our trip to Florida in march this year and I got pregnant after that.
When I was holding the positive pregnancy test I was overwhelmed with joy, but also fear. It got pregnant so fast. I wasn't prepared for it. I mean, I wanted to become a mommy. I wanted to have a child with my soulmate Erik. But I thought it would take at least 6 to 12 months before getting pregnant. I never suspected that I would get pregnant, right after quitting with birth control.
But the fear remained. I worried if everything was going alright with the baby. I stopped worrying after our first ultra sound. At that time I was 8 weeks and seeing that heartbeat, made everything alright. I lost my fear and I could finally enjoy my pregnancy.
Well, not totally enjoying it. Hello morning sickness. Or you can better call it: all day sickness. I was sick for weeks. I could only lay on the couch or in bed. After passing the 12 weeks mark, I finally was feeling better. The nausea dissapeared and I got more energy day by day.
Here is our little miracle at 12 weeks and 4 days. And at that point I heard the heartbeat for the first time. It was so emotional and joyful at the same time. I cried.
Right now I'm feeling so much better and I already felt the baby three times. We call him/her 'plop', because the first time I felt it, it was like a bubble was plopping against the inside of my belly. It were two small plops.
I thinking about doing weekly pregnancy vlogs from now on. I will first cover the first 3 months of being pregnant and then I will update weekly about my pregnancy.
Oh and I'm engaged. Erik popped the question on 20th of may. We're getting married on september 2th this year. I'm so excited! 2016 is a great year for us.
