Check Out My Pregnant Belly!

I mean – that is just ridiculous! LOL! I signed up for the new Google + thing that’s going on (and am probably never going to use it). During the sign up, it somehow linked my Picassa account to my login and all these pictures from 2 years ago began to flood my screen. I don’t even know where they are being stored!

It was of my entire pregnancy with Liam. I went through the whole thing – being on bed rest at home, then being hospitalized for those 2 months, giving birth, Liam as a little baby, Natalie has a 2 year old. I cried as I leafed through the 500 pics because it all happened too quickly.

I sent this picture to Bill because I no longer am that size. You forget how big your body can get when you are carrying a child. I think I gained 35 pounds with Liam and my body was just stretched to the MAX. Look at that angle. Oh my word!!

You know when people say they were “all belly” – well, that wasn’t me, was it? I was “all everything”. LOL!

All worth it – every single second.

  1. I’m due in 2wks w/my 2nd child (a little girl) and this time all belly, when I look at pictures of me pregnant with my son like you I was all everything. I gained weight EVERYWHERE, must be something about carrying boys!

    I love the picture by the way πŸ™‚

  2. lol! That’s hilarious how it linked all of those! I look back at preg pics and just can’t believe it. People say that I will regret not having many pics from my twin pregnancy last summer- ah no. I don’t think so.

  3. Love this photo. My what an angle! I seriously wish I took more photos of myself when I was pregnant…. now i regret that I did not. But then I felt so gigantic I didn’t want to be reminded of my gargantuant belly!

  4. I remember you when you were expecting. Lets talk about ‘bad angle’ because you were still teeny tiny. Natalie looks so little!
