Kendra's Day Out (Photostory)
It's early morning and Racquel is working alone at the boutique. She is trying to put up a swimsuit display. At the moment there is only one customer in the boutique.
"This is just not working. I need to walk away and come back to it." (Racquel to herself)
"How are you doing over here? Can I help you find something?" (Racquel)
"No. I'm really just browsing." (Customer)
"Okay. Let me know if you need some help." (Racquel)
Racquel turns and heads back to the bikini display.
"Hello. Welcome to Ni'Chalets. Can I help you find something?" (Racquel)
"Do you sell maternity clothes?" (Kendra)
"I'm sorry. We do not. Have you tried the Mommy and Me store on Clifton Drive?" (Racquel)
"I did, but I was looking for something a little more fashionable." (Kendra)
"I completely understand. Are you shopping for yourself?" (Racquel, making sure she doesn't make a bad assumption)
"Yes. This is my first." (Kendra)
:"Well, congratulations! I have a little one, too, and I can't even remember my life before she came." (Racquel)
"Thank you. I'm looking forward to the arrival. I guess I will just look at what you have and dream about the day I will be able to wear regular clothes again." (Kendra)
Racquel goes back to her display and Kendra starts browsing.
"What are they called again?" (Naisha)
"Jag Jeans." (Shantavia)
"Hello ladies. Welcome to Ni'Chalets." (Racquel)
"Hello. Do you carry white Jag Jeans?" (Naisha)
"I am expecting a shipment next week. I can take your information and call you when they arrive." (Racquel)
"That's okay. I'll just stop by the end of next week." (Naisha)
"Okay. Well take a look around and let me know if I can help." (Racquel)
"Do you have a restroom I can use?" (Kendra)
"Of course. It's in the back, right next to the dressing rooms." (Racquel)
"So what do you think of this red jacket?" (Naisha)
"It's nice, but do you really need another red jacket? You have three already." (Shantavia)
"I like red." (Naisha)
"Thanks so much for your help." (Kendra)
"You're welcome. Good luck with everything. Come back to see us sometime." (Racquel)
Kendra heads to her doctor's appointment.
She has arrived a little early even with the stop at McDonalds.
She is waiting for her husband and the doctor to arrive. Nate, her husband, shows up first.
"Hey sweetheart. Sorry I'm late. How are you feeling?" (Nate)
"Hi honey. I'm a little early. I'm feeling fine. I'm just a little tired." (Kendra)
"What are you doing with a milkshake?" (Nate)
"The baby asked for one. Besides, it's mostly milk. How bad can it be?" (Kendra)
"We agreed. No fast food during the pregnancy." (Nate)
"I'm sorry if it seems like I am always coming down on you, but I just want you and the baby to be healthy." (Nate)
"Hello, Dr. and Mrs. Burke. How are we doing today?" (Dr. Sheppard)
"Just fine. I was getting my daily lecture from my husband." (Kendra)
"Should I leave and come back?" (Dr. Sheppard)
Dr. Sheppard directs Kendra to his exam table as he prepares for the exam.
"So how is the new mommy doing? Anything new I need to know about?" (Dr. Sheppard)
"Just the normal morning sickness and fatigue." (Kendra)
"Does this hurt?" (Dr. Sheppard)
"No. Not really." (Kendra)
"So are you getting enough rest and staying off your feet?" (Dr. Sheppard)
"You don't think she's resting enough?" (Dr. Sheppard)
"She tosses and turns all night." (Nate)
"When you don't rest, you put stress on the baby. We have been able to avoid complete bed rest, but it is not off the table. I'm going to fetch the ultrasound equipment and I will be right back." (Dr. Sheppard)
Nate goes over to comfort his wife. He can see she is worried.
"Honey, what are you doing?" (Kendra)
"I just want to say hello to junior." (Nate)
"Let's keep in mind it may be a little girl." (Kendra)
"I will still call her junior." (Nate)
Dr. Sheppard returns with the ultrasound equipment and finishes the exam. Nate takes the rest of the day off from the hospital and accompanies his wife home. He wants to make sure she eats a healthy dinner and settles in for the night.
Kendra's Baby Bump
I just used a piece of polymer clay. I didn't even have to mix the color, It is straight out the package marked caramel. It isn't baked or anything. Since her belly will be growing over the months, this is a great way to have her realistically increase in size. I may also add some thighs and butt along the way.
So you can see it's not a perfect color match and it doesn't have to be. No one, except Nate and her doctor, will be seeing her belly naked. Unless of course she decides to pose naked on the cover of Vanity Fair.
