There was a rare maternity moment last week where I wasn’t in a flowy dress, pre-team lunch gathering, and I figured that it should be documented with a photo! I feel like I have so fewer photos this pregnancy than I did with Parker which is just the beginning of the differences in my journeys carrying these two babes. Some of them are trivial like the fact that I loved wearing tight clothes with Parker and now I don’t want anything clinging to my body. (Which can probably be attributed to pregnancy in March in Southern California vs. July in Austin, Texas.) I seriously have used hardly any of my maternity things from my pregnancy with Parker which seems like a waste, but I also haven’t bought a lot of maternity this go around, just looser fitting things. On the contrary, other differences probably stem from the experience of having done this before– not stressing too much about having everything figured out, but knowing that it will all work out. Also, the procrastination! I just finally ordered a few things for the nursery so that I can things washed and organized and begin turning our guest room/office/dumping ground for so many things into a nursery! I also know that my work and business makes it hard for me to get a true maternity leave, but I feel so much better prepared going into that experience this time around. (Which on that note, we are looking for a nanny if anyone has any great Austin-based recommendations. Is that weird to look for a nanny here? Don’t tell Aaron!) But, without further ado, a very big bump, lots of denim and a body that hasn’t seen the inside of barre class since 28 weeks:
But, seriously, about this nanny recommendations, friends! Send them my way!
