When I look back on photos of me pregnant I smile. But then I grimace a little too.
I really liked being pregnant all three times. Except towards the END.
No, I was not a fan of the terrible “morning” sickness I had with B and my “Wall-E” feet that I had with K. And let’s not talk about the sciatica with G. Oh man.
I thought it was SO COOL to be growing a human being and also by the sixth month or so to have a shelf in which to rest my food. 🙂
My first pregnancy was during the third for my cousin Misty*. We met up at Christmas time that year and took this photo:
Her oldest daughter and Ben are about 3 weeks apart.
I was also in a wedding (of my good friend Jennifer) at the end of January and B was born April 2nd. I’m here to tell you RIGHT NOW pregnancy pantyhose DO NOT stay up. Just FYI.
This photo was taken in the morning before I left for the hospital to birth B. I see two things written all over my face in this shot:
“I’m never going to sleep well again, am I?”
“GET THIS HUMAN BEING OUT OF ME!”
I don’t have a ton of “bump” pics with G for some reason. I think it’s partly because I was still working while I was pregnant with him and well, life was just BUSY.
Here’s one from that Christmas with me and my mom. I LOVED that sweater.
And of course there are a TON of pics of me pregnant with K. Too many, probably. 😉
This is a favorite though.
This was taken like about 2 weeks before she was born.
And this one has amazing memories attached to it. It was taken as we left our house in Texas, a few days before we moved to Louisiana. It was K’s last day in the Texas house. I am smiling but I wasn’t that happy, honestly.
Also, people must REALLY like this post, My Last Preggo Post, because it is THE most viewed post on my blog. NO LIE. And it has a bunch of bump pics and a bonus pic of my aforementioned “Wall-E” feet. You’re welcome.
So, did you like being pregnant? Do you like being pregnant right now, if you are?
Link up with Shell to take a trip down Pregnancy Lane like me!
*Misty has since had 4 more babies for a total of 7. We are off to see her and her family at the end of this week. That makes for a total of 10 kids. And we are calling this vacation…? hmm…
