17 weeks + 6 days

I can’t believe I am doing this, but for some reason I feel compelled to embarrass myself today. I broke out the camera and tripod and took some photo’s…mostly because at 4 months I am still  able to wear my own jeans (woohoo), but to also document my pregnancy progression.


I wasn’t going to post this on the web for everyone to see, but I figured what the hell? I am who I am. Fat, skinny, tall, short, happy, sad; whatever. With both my other pregnancies I was always too embarrassed about how I looked, with my big baby belly, but this time I’m older and wiser and I know that this doesn’t last all that long. Nine month’s sure seems like a long time, but when you put it into perspective to the rest of your life, it’s nothing more than a blip in time. Before I know it I’ll be huge with this baby, so I wanted to capture the moments before that happens…because I know I’ll be in the comfy maternity jeans very soon, and holding another beautiful baby not so long after that.

Congratulations on posting this photo! I think you look awesome. I'm glad you're older and wiser because we're all beautiful no matter what. I know I too need to realize that, but it's so true. We need to be more at peace with ourselves. Can't wait to see the layouts! :D

Thanks for stopping by and wishing me a HB!
