This Prego Log is WAY overdue! I actually started writing it three days after Maui was born, but I kept putting it off, and now I’ve already been a mom for 12 weeks. Most of what you’re about to read is from my perspective just after giving birth and reflecting back on my last week of pregnancy.
We don’t really have the words to go along with this post, so for now we will let the video and photos speak for us… Mommy and baby Maui are doing fantastic and our hearts are filled with love and joy! (Full labor video, plus 15 photos!)
The countdown begins! I am in the final stretch and just finished week 38 of my pregnancy. I still feel great and have energy, but I started to notice some pregnancy symptoms. This week I walked a lot and decided to have some “me time”…
My 37th week of pregnancy was a big week! I had my first Mother’s Day and I had my first few “false labor” contractions. I also worked out six days in a row and stuck to a healthy vegan meal plan…well, about 90% anyway, haha!
In March of 2016 we joined some friends for a hike at the Joshua Tree National Park in California, and while digging through our archives recently we came across the photos from the afternoon and figured it was as good a time as any to share them! (#TBT) We can’t wait to take our baby girl on some adventures like this!
OMG! I can’t believe I finished my 36th week of pregnancy! Just three more weeks and we will be parents! This week I worked out six days in a row and finally switched up my vegan meal plan!
Man, are we stoked about these! I’ve been a full-time professional photographer for more than 10 years, but have never shot a maternity session…until now. And the results are absolutely epic!
This week flew by… I continued to eat healthy and work out into my 35th week of pregnancy, and aside from tingly hands, everything is going great. We even went to the beach and took my first set of maternity photos!
On Earth Day we drove an hour north of our home in Long Beach to hike three and a half miles round trip to Eaton Canyon Falls. It was a beautiful day and Darlene did amazing at 34 weeks pregnant!
