new mexico!

Continuing on my way too many adventures in the third trimester… Andy and I did a 13 hour road trip yesterday from Austin, TX to Albuquerque, NM.

I had to pee once per hour, thanks to my bladder being squished by the giant uterus. Which meant some side of the road pee-ing.

At one point, while in the passenger seat I had 2 pillows on my back and my pregnancy pillow in front and a blindfold. It’s all about figuring out a way to be comfortable!

I took a couple of hours at the wheel to relieve Andy but it was mostly him soldering on.

We have a deal big wedding on Saturday. The groom is a professional dance/editorial photographer. Bride is Ballet Austin dancer. I’ve hired an extra second shooter, one of my Foundation mentors was kind enough to help cover it. He is way way way over my league, just a freaking amazing shooter. I don’t think this couple know how fortunate they are.

I've been hiring extra help this season to compensate for my decreased mobility so that my quality of work delivered stays high. It does reduce my profits though.

My symptoms so far: carpal tunnel on my arms and hands just started recently, swelling of the feet, and peeing way too much.

I'm so glad Andy is here to support me and to share this experience of New Mexico with me. We are staying in his close friend's parent's house. And they are quirky and there are horses and sheep and dogs and cats.
