Baby on Board!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Excited to say that my husband, Steven, and I are expecting our first baby together!! We are so anxious to meet our bundle of joy. So much to do and not enough time it seems.

Being pregnant is a beautiful thing. My sister had my niece, Londyn, last year in October and I was overseas and missed her birth but luckily I will have my sister by my side when my baby is born. I had to realize that being pregnant means I can't do what I use to. Sad as it seems. As much as I want to get on the volleyball court I can't and that hurts a little, but I know once its over it will all be worth it.  Here is a picture of me by the pool three days ago.

 22 weeks

Below is the picture of my sister 4 days before giving birth to my niece Londyn.

I honestly just amazes me how the human body knows exactly what to do and when to do it. Like I stated before pregnancy is a beautiful thing. Before I got pregnant I thought everything would be easy. I stand corrected its great being pregnant but it is also a struggle to maintain a healthy diet as well as exercise regularly without causing injury to myself and my unborn child.

All the wonders of motherhood has already started and my baby isn't even here yet. I find myself at Babies R Us a lot. It's comforting to be around other pregnant women. Not to mention seeing all the different toys, devices, electronics, baby clothes and all. I fall in love every time I walk in. I have 3 more months to go. I go into 23 weeks on Sunday. It's going by so fast and I can not wait for December to get here it's going to be great.

I have so much to write about but I cant wait to meet my baby. Then it's back to the sport I love. Until next time. :)

Volleyball Camps and Merchandise

Hello all I know it has been a long time since I posted. The season here is Russia is coming to an end. Next month the playoffs will start. As a few of you may know I had my surgery on Dec 28th and it was a success. Was back on the court 4 weeks later. Sooner then expected but God had me.

Now onto business. The Summer is fast approaching. Summer means Summer CAMPS!!!! I have about 7 locations confirmed around the USA!! It's going to be a blast and I can not wait. I have a few people traveling with me. Not to mention some of the locations have made flyers/posters don't they look great?:

Each camp will have an Herbalife stand and an area where my merchandise will be sold. It's a great feeling to have fans all around the world who consider me their inspiration. Here is one of the popular ones:
