This week has been a good reminder to just love my bump, my growing baby, & all the many changes my body is undergoing.
This past week I have been trying on countless swimsuits for my baby moon. I usually go around week 24-26, when I’m a cute pregnant size. You know the size when you look like you just have a basketball? Yeah no, I’ll be going out at 32, returning at about 35 so a little far from the “you look so great in a bikini stage”. -no complaints just pointing out the obvious
I decided to try some swimsuits on at the Boat Show with my husband, which was a laugh fest, I swear all the sizes were jr. sizes because I’ve never seen smaller larges in my life!
I then decided to go out with a girlfriend and Holland to the mall to have them help me figure out what looks decent on me. I mean I am going to a Disney property, I want to look somewhat appropriate and decent so I don’t scar the kids. I ended up with a wet suit, I had to order larges in all the swimsuits especially the bikinis so I hope those fit, fingers crossed. It was all fun until my feet started to swell up and I couldn’t manage to get my feet back in my shoes. I was so embarrassed. I ended up walking the rest of the mall without shoes on. It was so nasty & I was so relieved I didn’t see anybody I knew. *they were actually the shoes I am wearing in my post
Saturday was a little better as I did get some amazing suits, that I am so excited to wear! I finally feel confident and relieved. I can now stop stressing and just worry about not having my baby when I am on vacation. Holland came at exactly 36 weeks, & I’m returning shy of 35 weeks with this little guy, Briton & Hudson were both 37 weekers. *I think I just made that word up?*.
I do not think or want to have my baby early, but I will be packing his take home outfit just in case. And if he decides to come, it better not be in the airport, could you imagine? But a couple extra weeks in Hawaii on maternity leave wouldn’t be so bad:)
