Hello friends. Today I am 33 weeks and 1 day! I had a check-up earlier this week and baby sounds good! It drives me a little crazy that they don’t do ultrasounds, so all I get is the heartbeat on the doppler thing. I can’t wait to see her!
Anyway… Weekend before last Beau and I took a Babymoon to Las Vegas! But before I get to that I wanted to share a few maternity pics from my photo shoot the prior weekend…
I am pretty happy with the way the pictures turned out. There’s a whole bunch more but these are just a few of my favorites 🙂
Anyway… Las Vegas….
So we were wanting to take a short vacation before the baby arrives and were having trouble settling on a place. First of all, I didn’t want to take a lot of time off work because I need those hours for my maternity leave. But I wanted to go somewhere warmer and somewhat relaxing. I know Las Vegas is probably not what comes to mind when people think of relaxing vacations, but I have been there multiple times before, so there’d be no motivation to try and do too much (like there would be in a new city I’d never been to). So we settled on Las Vegas for three main reasons:
- It is close enough that we could drive
- We’ve been there before
- I could treat myself to a massage at one of the fancy spas in the casinos on the strip (Which was soooo nice. I highly recommend Qua Spa at Ceasar’s Palace!)
The drawbacks were:
- I can’t drink alcohol (which is readily available everywhere in Vegas!)
- they allow smoking indoors on the casino floors.
Otherwise it was a really nice getaway where we ate delicious food and wandered around looking at the various attractions, and got plenty of sleep.
My sleep has continued to be erratic, and I haven’t really found a great solution for it. I am just hoping that somehow my body will know when I am about to go into labor and will give me a couple of nights of really good sleep before I pop!
Yesterday was International Women’s Day and I participated by going to the rally at my state capitol building… I am a bit too sleep deprived to write a blog post about it yet, but I expect I will have some thoughts together by next week. Have a great weekend everyone!
Did anyone else take a babymoon? Where did you go?
