well you've all inspired me to get my hubby to take some belly shots... and to figure out HOW to get them on line to you. someone gave instructions regarding that so thank you and over this weekend i will try to get something up.
i was particularly relieved to hear all the "arm talk" ... and i must say i myself have been very conscious of covering my arms the last 5 months, but lately it's been 25 degrees lately (in the 80's i suppose) and yesterday i went out and bought not one, but FIVE tops with no sleeves. i've decided to embrace the parts of my body i like... breasts are good to show off b/c they always look nice and volumptuous in pregnancy and of course that growing belly is delightful to see... so i'm making a conscious effort to "let go" of my arm hang up and say "who cares" i'm pregnant and that makes up for any imperfections... my body is an amazing vehicle, fat arms or not, and it's doing a super job growing this baby... so to everyone out there who lives south of alaska, summer is coming so take off those long sleeves, slather on some sun screen and let your arms hang loose and free in this warming air. after all, it could be worse... you could be 80 with wrinkly skin on top of it... you all have great skin and amazingly strong arms for holding that babe.
happy weekend to you all.
PS dont' get me wrong, i'm really not ALL that positive all the time. but i just get bored of sabotaging myself. in fact presently i am the heaviest i've ever been? it's tough BUT... i feel healthy otherwise and determined to practice feeling good about myself and all that is happening.
