Out And About

Do you remember how weeks and weeks ago, I wore this gray tank top and had only the slightest bit of a bump?

And now, at 36 weeks, I can just barely pull it down to cover my stomach that now seems like it can't possibly grow any further out. My skin is stretched as tight as a drum, and several times a day, I get little feet sticking out of me every which way.

I love it. I can't imagine how much bigger I'm going to get over the next four or so weeks, but I love it. I hit 12 pounds of weight gained, and even though I'm pouty to be over ten, I know half of that weight is baby... so really, I think I'm doing pretty well! I'm still working out, though I don't know how much longer I can keep up 40 minutes every night.

Today is June 16th. My due date is July 16th. I can't believe that by this time next month, I may have possibly already met the little one inside of me... or I may be getting very close to meeting him/her. The baby clothes are all washed. My hospital bag is packed. The only thing I have left to get together is the list of people for Shane to call after the baby is born. I can't believe the time between 13 weeks and 36 weeks went so quickly, but I can truthfully say that I've loved every single minute.

You may feel like you swallow a watermelon, but you look more like you swallowed a grapefruit. Okay, maybe a cantaloupe. :)

I cannot believe how fast this pregnancy has gone. WOW. For real. I'm shocked. I cannot wait to see next month, and I hope and pray that I get to meet your little melon as well.

You are HAWT.

You are radiant and almost make me want to be pregnant again. That is just about the highest compliment I can even think of right now. Also, my baby is 9 months old and I STILL HAVE 12 POUNDS TO LOSE. So your weight gain is amazing and can you please go eat a chocolate malt for me?

Youre the most beautiful prego I've ever seen :)

(would it be weird to ask for more pics of your hair? lol) <3

You look so cute! I can't believe you have only gained 12 pounds. You look so healthy and happy.

12 pounds is awesome! I wish I could have only gained that much ... 2 years later and I'm still working off the 35 that I gained.

You look beautiful ... the new little one will be here before you know it!

Julie said...

You look fantastic!!

Oh, and did you put ME on the list Shane will call? Nevermind the people who are, say, related to you and way more important, you having a baby is all about me. ;-)

I can't wait to meet your new little one!

Being pregnant is amazing!

You are too cute for 36 weeks!

My boys were both born early...as 34 and 37 weeks! So you could go ANY DAY now!

You are ridiculously adorable, pregnant or not pregnant. Couple that with that sweet baby belly. THE CUTENESS!! I mean, I felt like a beached whale at 36 weeks, despite not gaining much (or so I thought - you friggin ROCK with only 12 lbs!) You, honey, you rock the belly so adorably, my teeth are hurting from the sweet.

You are my hero. THE END!

There is nothing more miraculous and perfect and remarkable than a baby belly. It defies all logic in its exquisiteness. I love how you love being in love with this baby and with this belly. You make me smile!

Guinevere Meadow said...

You are beautiful!!

12 pounds is INCREDIBLE. I am in awe.

Such The Spot said...

You're so stinkin' cute. And I, for one, cannot *wait* to meet that baby once and for all. Maybe *if* I make it to Blog Her. You'll totally have to do a pump'n'dump so we can enjoy that margarita! ;)

You look exactly the same except for the bump. It does seem like time has flown by for you. I am amazed at your only 12 lb. weight gain and exercising every night. My daughter-in-law gained 30 lbs. with Jack and lost it all within a few weeks. She's very thin like you are.

What a great comparision photo! I can't believe that in exactly a month you will have your little one here with you. So exciting. Take care of yourself!!
