A few of my girl friends have asked for more belly bump pictures, so here they are!
The last time I shared my belly pics, I was only 20 weeks along and barely showing. Our baby was the size of a mango back then. I am now 33 weeks pregnant! She’s now about 4 lbs and 17inches in my belly and growing bigger by the day! It’s hard to believe that I still have almost two more months to go, because I am feeling BIG! How could I possibly get any bigger than this?! I get comments all the time about my growing size. Sure makes a woman feel good when people see me with their eyes bulged out and gasp “WOW, you’ve gotten BIG!” One great thing about being pregnant is how nice everyone is to me! People open doors for me, let me ahead of them in line, a security guard carried my groceries out to my car from Trader Joe’s last week and even the bums out on the streets of San Francisco yell “Congratulations!” to me as I waddle past them. Definitely a perk of being preggers!
Despite feeling big, I feel pretty great these days! First trimester was rough, but the second trimester and start of third trimester have so far been pretty wonderful. Even though my body seems to be changing almost daily- some part of me always seems to be aching or swollen- I am enjoying being pregnant, especially when I feel my little girl kicking inside. It’s a totally weird feeling but it makes me so happy knowing that she is there and active and healthy. As our delivery date approaches though, I am getting a lot more anxious about the labor and delivery part, to the point where I’m having insomnia at nights which I heard is common in the third trimester. Jeff and I went to a labor/delivery class a few weekends ago and I burst into tears TWICE during the live birth videos because I was so terrified watching it all! I was like “THAT’S what happens?!!?” Other women were crying at how beautiful the whole birthing process was, while I was crying out of sheer horror. It’s scary!
Anyways, I’ll be sharing a few of my maternity projects this week. Hope you enjoy them!
