Beautiful, dear, sweet and now mom! Lia Camargo, or Just Lia as many know, tells a little more about her pregnancy. Lia is waiting for Fernando, the result of her 16-year relationship with Dani, her husband. Get to know more about this charming blogger mom and YouTuber! Welcome Lia, Dani and Fernando!
Changing Diapers: Talk a little more about yourself …
Lia: I’m Lia Camargo, Just Lia’s blogger for over 15 years. There I talk about fashion, beauty, travel, technology and other little things including now, pregnancy!
Changing Diapers: How did you and your husband meet?
Lia: By letter! He had a video game club at a time when we still didn’t have internet at home, so I saw an advertisement for the club in a magazine and sent a letter. I needed a hint to pass the level in a game and I ended up meeting the man of my life! (the tip, never came kkk). After some time exchanging letters, the internet “appeared” and we started to speak by ICQ, until we met live. They’ve been dating for 16 years…
Changing Diapers: Did you plan to get pregnant? How was the decision to have a child? Was there any difficulty in achieving this?
Lia: Yes, we had been talking about it for a while, willingly. We had to prioritize work for some time, but as soon as it worked, I cut the contraceptive. The surprise is that I got pregnant in about a week or two, it was extremely fast, we had no idea!
Changing Diapers: How was it to receive the pregnancy news?
Lia: I was having some episodes of seasickness and I decided to buy the test. I didn’t think it was possible to go so fast, so I didn’t want to talk to Dani, but he went with me to the pharmacy and ended up seeing it. When it was positive, I didn’t believe it very much…. To tell you the truth, while a doctor didn’t say it was real weeks later, I was doubting it. hehehe Dani already believed at first. We were very happy, it was a good time!
Changing Diapers: Is the pregnancy going smoothly? Did you have any against time?
Lia: The pregnancy from the beginning has been much more difficult than I imagined. A lot of nausea at the beginning, reflux now at the end, months with pain in the pelvis, a lot of acne, a lot of swelling … But anyway, it’s part of it! I don’t think I ever thought much about all the concessions a woman makes when she lends her body to have a baby. It is a very crazy experience!
Changing Diapers: How was the baby feeling for the first time?
Lia: At first we get anxious and are not sure if it is the baby moving or some random movement in our body. But everything is a reason to stop what you are doing and stay there “freaking out” and feeling what is happening in our belly. While writing this text, Fernando is very excited pushing the little foot! rs I’m always impressed 🙂
Changing Diapers: How was the name chosen?
Lia: We had never talked about it before so we had a bit of a hard time deciding. I told everything in a post on the site.
Changing Diapers: Lia, how do you imagine motherhood is? How do you prepare for sleepless nights and everything else that can happen after the baby is born?
Lia: I think it will be exhausting at first, but my partnership with Dani is wonderful. This week he saw me tired and said that he expects the baby to be born soon so he can share the care with me, because he is seeing how tiring these “lonely” months of gestation have been. I think that together we will learn a lot and be able to go through all stages.
Changing Diapers: Did you have a different desire during pregnancy?
Lia: Nothing in particular, but my most difficult wish was to find here in Brazil one of those pink donut donuts, just like Homer Simpson’s! I found it in a mega unlikely place. Another thing I had was a great desire to drink Frozen Margarita, so I bought a scratch card and improvised a sparkling water and lemon in a bowl with salt on the edge. I cheated my brain and didn’t even need tequila! Hehehe
Changing Diapers: What has pregnancy changed in your life so far?
Lia: For now the change is being more in the space of the house … We undid our office full of toys and trinkets to make room for a beautiful baby room. The house is a mess, full of boxes, with some baby devices like a stroller and a bathtub scattered around.
Changing Diapers: Do you have a preference for some type of delivery or will you wait to see what the destination prepares for you?
Lia: I’m doing everything possible to have a very beautiful human birth, normal or maybe even natural. I really want to have a good experience, I believe that every woman deserves it, without trauma or disappointment.
Lia, Dani and Fernando
Changing Diapers: How did the idea of the YouTube channel and the website come about?
Lia: I am very passionate about photo and text, so I confess that I went to YouTube out of necessity. I already had one of the biggest blogs in Brazil and one day I discovered that there was a world apart from videos and, I was nothing there in that universe! hehehe So I started my videos little by little … I’m still small there but little by little I am discovering what I like to do in this format.
Changing Diapers: Advice for dads and first-time moms who are waiting for their baby’s birth.
Lia: Take lots of pictures, record that very unique moment and that special belly! Also, read and research a lot about childbirth and know that finding the doctor is not so easy (I have so far consulted 5 different ones!). If I may have one more, don’t be in a hurry to buy things or set up the room. 9 months is a long time, you can do everything slowly and calmly.
Changing Diapers: A message to Fernando…
Lia: We are waiting for you, in time! With a house full of kittens and love, ready to live a new life!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
