Felt good to laugh and be silly. Even my DS started dancing and posing. The last 11 or so weeks have been NO JOKE. Not sure what the next 25 will hold, but staying optimistic...
Love it Crafty!! My last pic is a little silly, but only because I was asking if I had an orange in my hand when he took it and then I half blinked, which looks like I'm winking. lol I had just taken a shower and was in my jammies. Oh, and 14 weeks 4 days.
Do I have an orange in my hand? DH, why yes, yes you do. lol And then he wouldn't take anymore pics.
Hmm--I wonder. I knew a petite lady that was a runner and even at 8 months pregnant, she was only wearing yoga pants and not maternity. And had an 8 lb baby. I was like: geez, where did you keep it? I am 5'8" and I was ENORMOUS by the end. Like I'd look down in the shower and think: is that ALL my own body (I did have a 10 lb baby, but did not actually birth a pony as it appeared I might)?! I am not that big this time, I don't think, but I am sure I will be. I am just down in overall weight (11 lbs now from pre-preg) and I am sure that has to do with it. Or maybe I am hoarding a baby in my ribs like that other lady I knew, although I swear I am bigger at 15 weeks than she was at 40.
Totally believe this about a strong core--explains why I get so big! LOL! I remember last time the midwife's assistant told me that my stomach muscles were so tight and I started laughing hysterically like "on what planet?" but she told me all first-time moms stomach muscles are a lot tighter than second, etc. moms just because pregnancy stretches them out so much. But I am pretty sure that's the only time in my life anyone has ever told me my stomach is tight. Oh well. I yam what I yam.
Thanks! I have no hips so it has to go somewhere, though I have a longer torso. I looked like this with my DD as well. I don't think I will gain as much though. I'm on a way different diet. No gluten and no sugar. I think last time I had gained 18 pounds by this point. I think I've gained only about 8 or 9. 52lbs was way too much last time.
