Until my girlfriends convinced me, I wasn't going to have another baby shower. But then it made me realize at the shower, that pregnant women like me really need this kind of community and support especially during towards the end of a pregnancy. It really showed me what kind of a strong tribe and community I was surrounded by and for that, I'm very thankful. 

This pregnancy has been a whirlwind especially leading up to the finish line. There are definitely changes from the first one (I mean, who am I kidding, I was also ten years younger with Crea). I found out that I'm border line diabetic (blood sugar is right on the cusp), my iron is too low, and I'm not gaining enough weight. I mean, hello!! What's a pregnant girl to do? I've been trying so hard to balance everything that I was starting to feel like one of those crazy pregnant woman watching everything that I ate which is not my personality at all. It's not easy but it was great to be reminded that I still "got this" and feel surrounded by love and happiness at the shower.

A big thank you to all of my friends and family that came and showered me with blessings and love. I know that my squad will help me through my final days of pregnancy and I can't wait to share this little one and for them to get to know my baby!

UNTIL THE NEXT ONE,
