Belly Shots

Here's the progression of my belly so far:


I'm definitely noticing my thickening midsection when I have do things like wash the dishes--my belly sorta gets in the way between me and the counter. And I know it is only to going to get bigger! Before getting pregnant I had no idea things like twisting to crack my back or stretching to reach something on a high shelf would be such an issue. I'd pay a lot of money to be able to twist and crack my back right about now...

Even with all the bodily changes, I still cannot believe I'm actually pregnant. Pregnant--as in there's a human being growing inside my body like a parasite and I now have an extra organ that I've never had before (the placenta). It is just weird. And exciting.

I've been waiting for this experience for years that it seems too good to be true. Everyday I tell this to Dave and he just looks at me like, "Duh. How can you not have accepted that you're pregnant? Look at you!"

I love belly shots! Yes isn't amazing how it changes your body? I am also amazed that although it changes after having your baby in your arms that the tummy can be flat again after stretching so far!

Umm..I'm hoping that the 32-inch mark isn't a goal of yours... :P Thanks for the photos, dear Julie! xoxo

okay at first i thought the top pic is what you look like now and was like "uuuuh....where's the baby?" glad you're growing beautifully! wait until you give birth...you'll REALLY be amazed at how your body can go BACK to how it was before, if not better.

Thirty two inches isn't a "goal" but it could become a reality (scary!) depending on how I carry the baby. The lady I baby sit for was SO big and spherical that I almost couldn't believe it. Keep in mind, too, that I already cover up a bunch of the inches...
