Aside from the cancer recurrence, my pregnancy was going well! I was enjoying feeling every little kick, punch, and hiccup from our baby girl. I enjoyed walking around while having a conversation with the little lady growing inside me, even if I looked like a crazy person while doing it.
Over the last few months of the pregnancy – May, June and July, I got a lot of stuff done! We were gifted a baby moon at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, which was AH-mazing! We finished decorating baby girl’s room and it for sure is the most peaceful, aesthetically pleasing room in our home. I had a pamper day at Glen Ivy with my mom and my sister, had my BEAUTIFUL baby shower, where holy moly, everyone showed so much love for me and for our baby girl, and lastly had the help of our good photographer friend, @kimberlyelysephotography to shoot our maternity photos.
I learned a lot about how to waddle around with a bump the size of a basketball on your front side, I learned how to make yoga pants work for any occasion, because let’s face it – maternity jeans are STILL jeans and that’s just not comfortable, and I learned how to brush off all the ridiculous comments people say to you while you’re pregnant. Well, maybe not brush them off, but definitely vent to Toby about each comment. “You look like you were due last week!” from the employee at the DMV (I still had two months left), “chubbers,” “you want to eat more?!” Yes, give me more food.
We were coming towards the end of June which meant we were getting closer and closer to game time and finalizing the “plan.”
