Rockin' The Bump!

Linking up today with Shell over at Things I Can't Say and Rockin' the Bump. I will confess that I was someone who LOVED being pregnant. I was never more at ease or relaxed in my body, and I never had that explosive baby bump that I actually longed for. Oh, don't get me wrong, she was there and she showed, but I was a large pregnant woman with a not-so-large belly for most of my pregnancy!



Here's a picture of me in Germany at somewhere around 4-5 (I think it was more like 4-1/2) months pregnant.


And here is a shot of me with my newborn niece six weeks before my own daughter was born. I flew into New York for her birth, with my big ole pregnant belly and fears that the seatbelt on the airplane wouldn't close! But I did just fine, my not-yet-here-baby did great and stayed put, and my niece enjoyed resting on the bump for a bit.


I really don't have nearly enough shots. I mean, I have pregnancy pics and all, of just day-to-day or special events during the 38 weeks, but nothing like here's my big ole belly and monthly or weekly stomach shots as some women do.

Thanks to Shell for reminding me what a blessing pregnancy was for us, and how it really feels amazing to respect and adore one's body as I did at that time!

I love your comment about how pregnancy makes you feel about your body-respect and adoration!

So cute with your niece. I would have been so worried about going into labor mid-flight.

I am loving this link up! Great pictures! You were pretty brave to fly while being that pregnant! An airplane delivery would have made for some good blogs :)

Wow, amazing you did that flight while preggo. That had to have been one long flight!

Great shots!! :-)

So sweet! My pics are just day to day, too. It was pre-blogging. I'd do it differently now. ;)

You are brave flying while pregnant! I was scared to go anywhere--even driving. My husband of course thought it was the best excuse ever to not travel.

I avoided the camera completely with my first 3...but this time around I a ton of baby bump pics. Makes me wish I had some to compare it to.

I'm glad pregnancy treated you so well!

Aww cute, I love the little one resting on your bump.

Erin said...

Love this! But in awe that your doctor let you fly when you were that close to delivery! Mine told me I have to quit flying at 32 weeks...which is fine b/c I'm sure I won't fit in the seatbelt by then, LOL!
