I am in a blogging frenzy today! Leave it to my 4 cups of coffee and Kristin's exciting news!
When I was talking to Kristin, she told me her birth story and kept saying "now I know how you felt with Maia", and it all really took me down memory lane. It was 14 months ago that I was in her shoes. We had a very similar L&D experience except that hers ended in natural birth and mine ended in c-section. Anyhow, I thought I'd share some of my own memories since they are so fresh in my mind today. I can't WAIT to see Kristin and her new bundle of pure joy.
Me, hard at work, at one of my weddings. Nice expression, eh?!
One of the profesional pics that my good friend, Mike Judge, took of us when I was 33 weeks preggie
And me, a few days before having Miss Maia Lizzy! I felt like a pumpkin at this point!
Me and my most fabulous doula in the entire world, Leann. Yeah, I know I am brave for putting this picture up, but it's still a memory in my life before bringing my own bundle of joy into this world. (I look so hot because this was after 30 hours of labor! 1 hour of labor to go and the c-section will finally happen - what a looooong 2 days!) And, I'm just feeling brave these days . . .
And finally, Maia Elizabeth, right after she was born. Daddy took this picture. It would then be 2 days before we actually got to hold her. They thought she had a major heart condition. Turned out she is just special with a "boot-shaped" heart!
Thankfully, pregancy for me, is a distant memory, and one that will stay a memory! No more gigantic bellies and swollen arms, legs and feet for me!
