๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒปMy mama photoshoot with Karissa @olivelavida with a sneak peak of the nursery and our (soy)milk bath photoshoot in my kiddie pool!๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒธ . Long #bumpdate: This past week has been very interesting. My pregnancy has luckily been smooth sailing, and now with it nearing the very end, I've begun to experience Prodromal labor ( which basically means "precursor" in Greek) it's in between Braxton Hicks and active labor though it can be slowed down, while early labor would progress no matter what you do. . Dehydration has been the main culprit. I've never been a big water drinker and lately it's been giving me heartburn! Even alkaline water! So I've been slacking on my water intake, but have been trying to drink more juice and coconut water and  decaf herbal teas (I stopped drinking raspberry leaf tea for now because it can stimulate surges) but I ended up having to go to the hospital to get fluid in me Saturday. I had almost went to the hospital last Monday as well. I'd been experiencing a lot of pain in my upper stomach area so I didn't relate them to contractions (you always hear about lower abdomen and back labor), and I wasn't paying attention to how tight my stomach was getting. But it turns out I was having surges around 7 minutes apart and some times lasting up to 3 minutes. It just felt like bad upper stomach cramps to me. So that's definitely something I need to pay attention to from hear on out. I even threw up when I was there and I am already 3 cm dilated at #36weekspregnant, so they kept me for extra monitoring just in case I went into active labor. Luckily I didn't and everything calmed down once I was hydrated! The Dr thinks I won't last until my appt on Tuesday, but I'm determined to do everything I can to keep her in there for a while longer! . So since Saturday everything has been good, she almost put me on bed rest, but I did rest all weekend and I've been downing fluids like crazy...it's just gonna have to be the norm from hear on
The nursery has the best lighting in the house โœจ Some random musings for today: I'm pretty excited I can still fit into the maternity jeans I bought a few months ago, and now that it's September I'm pretending it's fall weather ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‚I'm playing with autumn makeup and my style when I no longer have a big baby bump ๐Ÿ˜ญ I'm feeling my style is evolving to a more softer, lighter, airy, romantical vibe ๐Ÿ’— Maybe I'm just looking for an excuse for a whole new wardrobe ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm also going to post another nesting project on my stories today that I'm very embarrassed about, but at least I feel cute!
We received our photos back from @olivelavida and I'm in love! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ญ She captured our joy and awe and love for our sweet baby girl and this new season of our lives. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—
New conconction: raspberry leaf tea lemonbalm "mojito" ๐ŸŒฟ I muddled lemonbalm leaves from my garden, lime juice from one slice (I should have used more), and sugar in my mortar and pestle, and then poured the tea over the leaves and used frozen blueberries again. Right after this photo I immediately spilled it all over and had to make another one. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ The verdict is: meh ๐Ÿ˜‘
A little sneak peak from our shoot yesterday with @olivelavida ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’— If you need some beautiful photos taken in the OC area, I can't recommend her enough! ๐Ÿ˜
๐ŸŒฑGrowth๐ŸŒฑ ๐Ÿ’˜8 weeks ๐Ÿ’˜12 weeks ๐Ÿ’˜14 weeks: when we found out the gender ๐Ÿ’˜27 weeks: the last two photos of her at our 3D ultrasound ๐Ÿ’˜Seeing and feeling her grow over these months has been the most magickal experience of my life. I am so grateful to be her momma.๐Ÿ’— #ourautumnrose
2nd maternity shoot with @olivelavida and @tfplegend today ๐Ÿ˜ The dress is from @shoppinkblush and I have been waiting to wear it for months until my belly filled it in! ๐Ÿ’—
I'm already in love with my maternity photos with @olivelavida ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒธ Today we took pictures of just me and the babe in the nursery and we set up a milk bath in our side yard! It was so special and fun. On Wednesday we're taking family photos where we got married. ๐Ÿ’— I'm so grateful to document the special time in our lives. Thank you so much Karissa! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒน

The nursery is being taken over by clothes and I'm being taken over by belly ๐Ÿคฐโ˜บ๏ธ #31weekspregnant #beberankin
๐Ÿต๏ธThe sweetest mail day!๐Ÿต๏ธ I don't need to buy her anymore clothes (just look at my stories ๐Ÿ˜ฌ), but when I saw these personalized fall onesies (and a fall ๐Ÿฆ„!?) from @twodreamsshop I had to get them for her first Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ˜ A lot of people have asked us if her name is Autumn because she will be born in October. And the answer is no. Her name came to us over a year ago (I think April 2017) and we knew if we ever had a daughter her name would be Autumn Rose. I also felt her presence very strongly throughout that year and I knew she would arrive sooner than later. I had thought maybe early 2019 but she chose this October instead ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŽƒ #beberankin #octoberbaby #ourautumnrose
I'm so over water, so I brewed some raspberry leaf tea and realized we didn't have any ice. So I added frozen blueberries and cut up fruit from breakfast and now it looks like sangria...so I'm fine with that ๐Ÿน #mocktail
30 weeks today. I can't believe our little babe will be here within 2 months or so.  We love you Autumn, we can't wait to kiss and snuggle you! ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ‘ง Pregnancy is so fleeting, I am so grateful for this special time with her before I have to share her with everyone ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’— #bumpdate #30weekspregnant
Lammas spread from @escapingstars using the #crystalunicorntarot โœจ๐Ÿฆ„โœจ Finding balance between work, passions, slowing down, and rest is literally a daily struggle ๐Ÿคช and I like to resist both at the same time ๐Ÿคท #lammas #lughnasadh #gosageyourself #tarotreading #gowiththeflow #balance #thestruggleisreal #escapingstars #moondaughter
Drinking dandy blend and pulled a card from @lunaprosperity #crystalunicorntarot โœจ๐Ÿฆ„ can't help but think it's Jimmy, Autumn, and I setting off on our journey together ๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ‘ง
