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!
