I admit, I have REALLY slacked in the blog department. I don't have much more to say on the matter, so I will jump right in on trying to catch everyone up on the last 9 months with some belly shots.
Here I am at like 12 weeks or so. Believe it or not, I really thought I was showing a little. Now, looking back, I realize I was just crazy. During this time I was always feeling sick and eating tons of Saltenes.Here I am at 17 weeks. I was starting to feel huge and a little worried that I was looking fat rather then pregnant. Lincoln had to constantly reassure me that I was looking pregnant and not just chubby. I have to admit, I was a little needy and emotional during this time in my pregnancy.
Here I am on my birthday at 21 weeks. I felt pretty good at this point thinking that I wasn't looking fat as much as actually pregnant. It was such a weird feeling and I was starting to really like my belly.
I am 24 weeks and enjoying a great weekend in MI with Lincoln, his parents and my grandparents. I loved digging a big hole in the sand and laying on my stomach with my belly in the hole. I was starting to feel borderline huge at this point and started to actually think, "how much bigger can I get?" Boy, was I in for a shock when I started to get really big.
This is my sad attempt at getting a picture of myself at 37 weeks. I was starting to realize that I didn't have many pictures of my belly and I thought I needed to take matters into my own hands. The up shot really shows how big I was getting.
This is actually the same day as the picture above. I just find it funny that I got ready so fast for work that I didn't realize how much of my stomach showed between my shirt and pants. I had to go home for lunch and put on my belly band. All my clients up to my lunch break thought it was so funny how my belly stuck out.
The next two are pictures of me at about 38 weeks. I had the most swollen feet that day. I was really starting to feel huge and a little sad that I still had two weeks to go. I don't think I realized how hard it would be to be so big!
I have really enjoyed watching my body change, ok, so it has been a little harder than I thought it would be. However, I keep reminding myself that it is because of the little guy growing inside of me. I am so excited to have this baby and hold him in my arms.... and not my belly.
