How did pioneer women travel in the last stages of pregnancy? My awe of them doubled as I did the packing and cleaning of my house while working my day job, and trekked down to San Diego (by car not covered wagon). I am now setting up house and I just want to put my feet up and watch my favorite movies.
What did those poor women do if they had contractions like mine which took me to the hospital four times since April 1st. At least that first one was a joke on us. Winding up at the hospital, praying he would stay in the oven longer is emotionally draining. Especially when I panicked, telling my mother, “if I deliver I won’t even have anything for him to wear home! Send me that “pack and play” now”!
The day we arrived in San Diego, I was back in the hospital with more contractions. The “take it easy and stay off your feet” lecture from my doctor was an order but pots, pans and clothes had to be broken out. Plus baby clothes so I could have something to take him home in. I thought again of our forebears. They had to build their homes from scratch and go out and kill their dinner.
I’m humbled. I don’t have to wring the necks off any chickens.
These are pictures are from my last photo shoot before we moved. I love Pink Blush Maternity. I am a huge fan but soon they will no longer be my go-to shop. But for now their dresses are so comfy and easy! I’m wearing more dresses and relegating pants that are tight and constricting in the back of the closet.
