The past few months have been a blast--fabulously social and packed in a great way--but it's also been kinda crazy trying to cram in all of my last trips + events while pregnant (and less energetic than usual), so it feels right that it's finally time to hunker down.
This weekend we celebrated my BFF Kelly's impending nuptials (the wedding isn't until October, but we pushed up the bachelorette weekend so that I could be there), and it was a super fun girl's trip. We enjoyed a day on the lake in a Pontoon boat (wearing lots of flair, of course), a fun night out with dinner and drinks (water for this gal, obvs), and threw Kelly a small bridal shower on Sunday morning.
I am *so* glad that I got to participate in this important weekend for such an important friend, and it was so fun celebrating with her, but I also have to say, my body is telling me in every which way that I've done enough and it's time to put on the brakes.
Last week before the trip, things were starting to get less comfortable and less easy for me. Then while on Saturday's boat trip (which I organized months ago), guess who got motion sickness so bad she puked 10+ times? This girl. Yep, everyone else was drinking and having fun, and I was throwing up. It took until week 32 of my pregnancy for me to get sick like this, but oh boy, did I ever get sick!
I eventually had to be dropped off on the side of the river and the bride-to-be's fiance had to come pick me up and take me home. Sigh. But I know that this is just another way that my body is saying "enough," so I've decided to listen.
These last 8-ish weeks are about starting to tie a bow around big projects, nesting, spending QT with Ben + Sayde, and s-l-o-w-i-n-g d-o-w-n. I can't keep going at my normal speed anymore--I'm super pregnant, this baby is coming soon, and it's time to act like it!
So, here we are. Back in town and back to stay for the foreseeable future. My next trip isn't until Kelly's wedding in late October, and on that trip we'll have a baby in tow! Woah.
Thanks again to Kelly and all of her fabulous friends for making this weekend so fun *despite* my sickness (and for taking care of me when I was throwing up into the lake)...
