I can’t believe I’m 37 weeks pregnant this week! Well, I can. I feel HUGE. I also have all of this energy, and a need to tackle everything before our babe comes, and yet, everyone keeps telling me to slow down. I have a toddler. There is no slowing down. But I am trying to get as much work done as I can – the kind where I sit on a couch and work from a laptop – before her arrival – because I know in those first few weeks, the last thing on my mind will be work. I hold those first few weeks pretty sacred. It’s a chance to bond with your new baby, to soak up that sweet newborn smell, the sound of their tiny breaths, and to heal. Labor is no joke. Soooo, I’m attempting to take it easy this weekend. No promises, of course. I’ll be sharing what we’re up to throughout the weekend over on instagram (lots of fun behind-the-scenes on my insta stories too!), facebook, and twitter. Follow along! How about you? Any exciting weekend plans?
