In the more pressing pregnancy-related world, things are going surprisingly well. Almost too well...to the point that I'm waiting with bated breath for something to go wrong. I know that's terrible to say, but I've seen a lot of friends and family go through difficult pregnancies, so I know about all the possible complications. Either we are just really lucky, or something is waiting for us during delivery. I honestly hope not, and all signs point to a normal birth, but I'm just trying to brace myself for the possibility......because right now I feel great! I admit that the first 20-21 weeks were pretty hard with the
He hasn't done all the editing yet for the 2,000+ photos that he took (haha..he was a little trigger-happy), but here is a little sneak peak.....
I'm really happy with them so far, but can't wait to see the rest of them. We did half of the shots in a studio setting and then the other half at a local park in my hometown. It was so much fun!! I was a little hesitant to do something like this until I heard a few people recommend it. But now I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. It was a great experience and although we don't plan to plaster our walls with these photos, they are nice to have and to put in a photo album or journal for the little one to look at when he's older. I admit that it took a few minutes for me to warm up to the camera, but he honestly did all the work, I just had to stand there and hold my burgeoning belly! Hehe. He has a really good eye for light and format and his work is honestly amazing. I definitely suggest checking his portfolio out if you are in the NH-MA-Maine area and are looking for engagement or wedding photos, portraits(children and adults), maternity shots or just artistic work. He is really talented and SUPER nice to work with.
So that's it for the 30-week update. We have another check-up next week with the doc and then we move into the once-a-week visits, so I'll keep you posted. We are also looking into getting a 3D or 4D ultrasound done locally in the next week or so since we won't have another scheduled ultrasound for 5 more weeks. If anyone has done this and has comments or opinions, I would love to hear it. My brother and sister-in-law did it with their twins, and the pictures are AMAZING, so that was what gave us the urge to do it ourselves. I am all ears if you have suggestions and thoughts though.
Be back tomorrow with an update on the bathroom shower fix too.....it's FINALLY done!! YAY!
