The Baby Diaries – Judah – Week Twenty-Seven (our wedding)
Being pregnant the day of our wedding was actually nice in some ways. I love knowing that my little man is in our wedding photographs. In others it was difficult. I had the girls with me the eve of the wedding so that they could get ready with all the other bridesmaids and feel part of the beautifying experience. They loved having their hair done by the hairdresser, and I loved having them with me. This was the first time I had them on my own overnight without James as their new stepmum to be.
I was still being sick the week of the wedding, hyperemesis is a pain. My hen night was a quiet evening at my friends home organised by my maid of honour, it had a 50’s theme and obviously as I was pregnant there wasn’t any drinking. Not that I’m a big drinker but that tradition was somewhat lost on me. I did really enjoy the wedding shower though which involved a treasure hunt around the house and a risque quiz with some answers given by my husband that people had to guess… he can be a bit cheeky.
On the Monday, (we were married on the Wednesday) I went for a spa break with my sister, my Mum, and Mum in law to be. It was lovely, so relaxing, we had facials, massages, I had a spray tan ready for the wedding, we did aqua aerobics, enjoyed a lovely meal. The only problem was this was the first time I discovered that I had hip problems during pregnancy. I have hypermobility and this had never been an issue before, in fact as a dancer (in my past) it was always a bonus to be so flexible. However, whilst we were taking an aqua-aerobics class and I was extending my legs out in the water my hip came out of socket. It was quite painful but I was able to rectify it relatively quickly and didn’t think much else of it. It became painful to walk though afterwards and I thought I was going to be in a place where I couldn’t walk down the aisle without crutches *sobs*. We did have a lovely time away though, and as I now know that it was only a matter of time for this to occur (so much worse in my subsequent pregnancy) I wouldn’t have changed any of it for the world. I shared a room with my Mother-in-law to be and I felt it gave us a great chance to bond better before the wedding. I am blessed with an amazing Mother-in-law.
So, on Wednesday of this week, we were married. Exactly one year to the day of when we met…. our little sentimental touch. It was a lovely day, but again, due to being pregnant, we skipped our own evening do and went straight to the lodge we had booked for our ‘minimoon’ as we had already been to Paphos the month before (when it was safe for me to fly).
I only captured one picture on our ‘minimoon’ this is unlike me. It’s James enjoying his first breakfast as a married man.
At the end of the week we had Isis’ 6th birthday party – yes you read that right, 3 days after the wedding…. when we had no home to host it in (read my last post here). My Mum offered us her place for the party and Isis had a great time.
It was certainly a busy pregnant week, you can see why in my pregnancy journal I posted how I had a lot less stress once it was out of the way.
