I took this picture a year ago, I was 38 weeks pregnant and thought it would be funny to take at least one bikini shot during my pregnancy. I normally don’t take pictures of myself in bikinis, let alone sharing them on the internet. I shared it a year ago and I am sharing it again today for Throwback Thursday. The reason I chose to share this picture of my bump is this is my very last bump picture. At the time I had no idea it was going to be my very last picture of my bump but maybe that’s why it is my favourite one. The next day at 11pm on the Friday of the Canada Day long weekend, 10 days before I was due I was pleasantly surprised with my water breaking as I was getting ready for bed. I won’t go into details but after a fairly easy labor we welcomed our little Hazel Evelyn May into the world at 9:14 am on Saturday June 29th, 2013. I can’t believe my baby is going to be one on Sunday, this has been the fastest, craziest and most fun year of my life so far. I really wish time would slow down, as these babes grow so fast and I am not really ready for a toddler. I am looking forward to celebrating her first birthday this weekend with just the 3 of us, exactly as she came into the world, everyone was away for the long weekend. We will have a big party the following weekend with all of our friends and family. As I do everyday I am going to enjoy every second I get to spend with her, maybe try to sneak in a few extra cuddles with my “baby” as this year comes to a close and I get ready to go back to the working world. Any of you working moms have any advice on returning to work after a baby? How did you survive the first few days of being away from your child? Was it harder on you or them?
