Tell us a bit about yourself!
My name is Judit and I am a triplet who is expecting BBG triplets! My sisters and I are from Hungary originally, but we all live close to each other in Norway now. This is my first pregnancy and I’m in my 18th week.
Besides work I enjoy being active and spending a lot of time outside and running, strength training, and cross country skiing are my go-to activities. I was unfortunately advised to stop enjoying these hobbies while pregnant with 3 (due to the higher risk nature of a triplet pregnancy), as my body is already being challenged enough. But I cannot wait to be able to get back to being active every day.
Why do you love Baby2Body, and what role has it played in your mama-hood journey?
Baby2Body is a fantastic idea and I love the app, the concept, and the fundamental thought it has been built on.
Being pregnant with triplets leaves me no capacity to worry about myself; all of my energy goes into ‘worrying’ for my babies. From the day I found out I was having 3 – I started reading everything I could find on the internet, but mainly found articles about all the things that could go wrong. It was a very stressful period and I really needed helpful advice but it wasn’t coming to me. My sisters jumped in and told me get in touch with other mommas so I could hear stories from actual people, and it led to me creating my instagram account @triplet_with_triplets, and that’s actually how I found Baby2Body.
I read their ‘about us’ and immediately downloaded the app. I have to say – without exaggeration – that it was a life changing moment! All of a sudden I had a best buddy under my fingertips giving me useful tips and information on everything that has been happening to my body and babies. I now have someone who is looking after me when I do not have the capacity to look after myself. The more I sued the app, the less worried I became. It gives advice on nutrition, on handling the changes of my body, and how to see my experience differently. I stopped surfing the net and reading horrible stories and started feeling more confident and more positive. I am absolutely sure that this is all thanks to Baby2Body, which truly provides all the information I need.
Why did you want to become a Baby2Body Ambassador?
I think moms need this app. We live in a modern, rushed world and have so little time. Baby2Body helps make everything less hectic, and it focuses on the mother while allowing her to focus on what’s most precious to her. I wish to share my experience with other mommas and mommas-to-be and want them to know about Baby2Body so they can experience this too.
Now for some quick questions:
What’s been the best part of your pregnancy?
Seeing the babies on the screen while at ultrasound scans! It’s amazing how active they are, even though I don’t feel them moving just yet!
What’s been the hardest part of your pregnancy?
Being pregnant with three does crazy things to your hormone levels, and it has made me really sick. Although I am long done with the first trimester I am still struggling with nausea, dizziness, and extreme morning sickness. Also, accepting that it is not safe for the babies and me to do certain sports was the second hardest. I still love the activities in the app and can not wait to be able to follow them after giving birth.
What’s been your strangest craving while pregnant?
I love sweet food and I have always preferred sweet to savory… well, until I got pregnant. Now it is bacon, bacon, bacon 🤪
What’s your favorite type of workout?
Bodyweight exercises like lunges, squats, push ups, pull ups, and lifting heavier weights. Which I’ll get back into as soon as I can after birth!
What’s the one thing you do, or wear, or focus on that makes you look and feel amazing?
When my belly started growing I started wearing baggy clothes to hide it. Then I found the Baby2Body app and read articles and saw pictures and realized that being pregnant and feeling sick doesn’t mean that I can’t try to look pretty. So I changed the baggy shirts and pants to form-fitting clothes that show my growing belly and I now feel more confident stepping out the door.
