Girl, you look great! WOW. For a second there I was like, what the heck- she doesn't even look pregnant. DUH! very cute nursing top- where from?

haha Katico on the "mooing". And I just love that it was a compliment!

 

Here I am- 37w5d (today). And, wow, apparently I look as tired as I feel. I'll have to get DH to take some better pics of me, maybe not in a bathroom... maybe brush my hair first... you know, just for posterity. And yeah, I am ALL about the frumpy maternity pants right now. can't believe I was unsure whether I should buy any. Silly me.

This is me at 39 weeks, the day I went into labor.  Total lounge-y clothes because I was doing last-minute chores to keep myself busy and make sure the house was in order for baby.

And here's me at "40 weeks", lol.  I don't know why I decided to do this, but I did.  (6 days after Mal was born)

Honestly, I'm thrilled with how my post-baby belly is looking so far.  I gained less than 20lb (net) this pregnancy, my fewest by FAR, but I was also starting out heavier than the end of my pregnancy with my 3rd kiddo.  I think my (mostly) regular exercise did me a lot of good - the first time I've exercised during pregnancy at all, honestly.  I haven't weighed myself yet (don't have a scale at home, and haven't left the house since birth), but I'm willing to bet I'm at or near my pre-pregnancy weight.  My belly is already smaller than the first pregnancy picture I took.  :)

I am psyched about seeing these post-baby pics too, how cool is that. Leahs, you look fabulous. If I'm looking half as good as either of you at 1 week PP I will be thrilled!

38.5 weeks. My husband said I look like "a bullet."  I don't know what that even means, and if he was complimenting or teasing me.  That shirt is my new favorite shirt though.  It is not even maternity, but I don't know that I can go back to wearing it normally.

Steph, Amymay, Rosemary- you have such cute pokey bellies. I think mine is so flat in front b/c baby is posterior... I suspect an anterior placenta (had one with #2 and this looks/feels similar, never any kicks or jabs in the front/center).

 

AmyMay, my experience has been that when you wear your non-maternity clothes pregnant, they never quite recover. But they are nice for the first few weeks PP.

Amy May, it's funny that I call mine a bullet, too. I thought I was so original...

And yes, Emmaegbert, clothes don't recover from pregnancy, do they?
