Rachel explains her lack of a birth plan, her decision to take Joey on the shoot, and why she didn't want Rodg to go to Vegas.
As usual, there is so much going on in my life and career all at once! I'm so excited to have Joey with me in L.A.! The timing could not have been any better since I was thrown into a shoot at the last minute, and I needed to rely on my team more than ever to prep everything in less than a day. Joey really showed me that not only is he ready to be on set with me, his experience on set as a hair and makeup artist really gives him a confidence with clients that can't be taught. I think he killed it on this shoot! I could tell that Jeremiah was disappointed that he didn't get to come on set with me, but Joey dies for Kim so taking him on this one just made more sense.
I'm getting more pregnant every day, and everyone in my life (especially Rodger and my sister, Pamela for instance) have been after me to really start thinking about a birth plan. Like I kept saying, "I wing things, so why not this too?" I was too afraid to over-think the birth, so Pam taking Rodger and I to meet a doula was supposed to put my mind at ease.
I literally couldn't believe that Rodg asked me if he could go to Vegas with his friends. I was so pregnant, and I couldn't believe he wanted to leave me, even if it's only for a day. I know Rodg, and I know his friends. They were gonna party like they're 25. Rodger has been so stressed out and cranky lately that I was hoping this would give him the chance to blow off some steam with the boys and come home more relaxed.
