Hello!!! Finally I am able to share the baby shower pictures with you guys, it took me a while but I am so excited to share them. The shower was here in Phoenix at beautiful place called El Chorro and it was organized by my mom and friends. They did such a great job!! I could not have imagined anything better—my family and friends came and we all shared and amazing time together.
I am not usually very comfortable in events that revolve around me as I get very anxious and stressed trying to make sure that everyone is having an amazing time. Sometimes, I worry so much that I don’t end up having fun myself. Luckily, this time it was different! Everything went by perfectly, we had an amazing brunch, spent a lot of time talking and catching up, opened gifts, and even did some diaper decoration. My favorite part definitely was being able to see all my friends in one same place and being able to catch up—between work and family, sometimes it’s hard for me to see all of my friends, so this was exactly what I needed.
This pregnancy experience has been a journey and I can’t believe it will be coming to an end soon! I remember the day I found out I was pregnant, I was finishing packing my bags to go on a trip to Merida with Dustin. It was like 9:00 pm and I had a feeling that something was different. I had taken a pregnancy test two days before and it was negative but I just had a strong feeling that I needed to take another one, so I did. We found out around 10:00 pm and made the decision to cancel our trip the next day. We had lost two babies before and we were determined to do whatever it took to make this one work. I still remember how happy I was, but I also remember all the fear that I felt with the possibility of having another failed pregnancy. It was horrible—it was one of those moments where you cry and laugh all at the same time. From that moment on, I canceled all the trips (even for our Bloguettes workshops) that we had planned for the first trimester and took care of myself as much as I could but without letting fear stop my daily routine and work that I love. The first trimester was hard with the nausea and throwing up multiple times, but ever since the first trimester ended it has been great. I have been feeling amazing and sometimes even forget that I am pregnant! However, something that never went away was the fear of losing him. I love him so much already that I just can’t wait to hold him close and know he is safe with us.
I am so grateful to have people that love me and that were willing to put this whole shower together for me. Also, knowing that Diego will be very loved by all his close friends and family makes my heart melt. I know that whatever happens, he will always have people who love him and who are expecting his arrival with as much happiness as we are.
