Getting as big as I do during pregnancy and sticking out like a sore thumb is just not my thing. The remarks from people have even started annoying Michael! I also don't like seeing people I know nowadays because I'm embarrassed about being so big. I know! I know! There's a life growing inside me; pregnancy is beautiful and all of that, but for real. I suppose I know what people are thinking, although I always assume the worst. Not only do I look like I'm having twins, but the rest of my body has gotten so big. There are dimples where there didn't used to be dimples and smooth, plump skin where there used to be visible veins, bones, and muscles.
I have gained the most weight with this pregnancy (not too much more than the others, though), and I know it's because 1) I didn't work out because of the serious fatigue of having two kids already and getting older and 2) I ate like crap. I admit it. I knew this would be my last pregnancy, so I pretty much just ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. I rarely told myself no, and my poor swollen ankles and feet have paid for it every time I indulged this last few weeks.
I know that I'm incredibly blessed to be giving life to a third son, and I wouldn't change that for the world. This is just a rant because I'm tired of being pregnant as I only have 7 days left. It's been a long 38 weeks, y'all.
|7 weeks pregnant and already showing!|
|35 weeks pregnant - I'm sparing you the pic I took yesterday where I had dropped significantly from this week. It wasn't cute at all. :-P Let's see if I have the guts to not delete this by 5:00. Haha!|
