Excuse me while I choke on my water…. um 35 weeks? Really??
I’m literally stunned. I had to check my bump app like 4x to confirm that we are really this far along. This might be my “omg… I’m having a baby in like no time at all” moment. I swore I was 34 weeks this week. Oh wow.
Update on the pregnancy front, got my test results back from my strep b test and it’s negative so no antibiotics necessary! One less thing to worry about when D-Day arrives.
I’m also transitioning into the insanely emotional stage of pregnancy. I have cried more this past weekend than I have in the past 9 months. Pull it together Audrey! I was a straight up blubbering mess watching Up! and the computer disaster that occurred has been a terrible roller coaster of emotions. I’m holding out hope that they can salvage the data since everything is on there.
This has been another busy week for us. A few months ago I shared that I won a mini-maternity and mini-newborn session from this awesome photographer, Keri Meyers Photography. She’s pretty legit when it comes to all things baby and photography. So Tuesday we took did our mini-maternity session. It was partially threatened by some rain (what??? rain in Arizona during summer?? stupid monsoon season) but it missed us and we ended up with an insanely gorgeous sky instead. It was super humid so I felt sort of like a sweating pig but it was all good. She posted a sneak peek this week and it was super pretty. See what I mean about that Arizona sky?? Gorgeous.
Wednesday marked Palmer turning 21 months (where has the time gone??) and also the start of our potty training adventure. I don’t know why I thought potty training would be a good idea less than a month before new baby’s arrival but it’s here and we are doing it. That also means that I’ve been chained to the house with Palmer. Help me. Send pints of Haagen-Dazs Rocky Road and positive energy. I’ll have more to update next week but please keep me (and what is left of my sanity) in your prayers. lol
