Never gonna be...

I am never going to be the cute pregnant girl. I'm not gonna lie, at this point and with this baby, I could care less HOW I look - as long as baby is healthy. BUT, as I've had to squeeze my ever-enlarging bottom into my size 10s....I've gotten a bit discouraged. My tops don't fit (I won't elaborate), my bottoms are snug, and the elastic bands in my maternity pants really do let the lil' tummy hang out. I look like a freshman girl after one semester of bar hoping....beer belly. Granted, I never did this as a freshman, but sadly saw many a classmate succumb to it.

I know that it doesn't matter. I know I should find freedom in the ASTOUNDING things that my body is doing (all on its lonesome, with no help from yours truly). I know that. I know I should embrace my hips getting wider....which the hubs lovingly pointed out (seriously, one of the cutest moments in our marriage). I'm working on it.

I'm working on it.

But, I'm not going to be that chick who doesn't look pregnant from behind....pretty sure all parts of me are going to look pregnant or enlarged.

Oh well. I'll deal with it. Baby is SOOO worth it.

    Yes it is and you are cute pregnant girl. Post some pictures and let us vote.

  2. I seriously pity the person I know who votes that I, a hormonal pregnant lady, am not adorable. There would surely be words. ;) I had fun with you in Portland, Mom. SOO glad we had some time together.

  3. Oh I am SO NOT looking like those people who don't look pregnant from behind. MY BA-DONK-A-DONK IS HUGE! I could elaborate further, but be assured you're not the only one!

    You are beautiful!! And just remember, from now on, any little bit of fat can be excused as 'baby fat'. :)
