7 More Days Of This Belly

I can't wait to be thin again.  There, I said it.  You don't know what you have til it's gone!  Haha!  Why oh why did I think I was so fat before!  (Does any female actually see themselves through an accurate lens?)

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!


  1. I think you are such a beautiful pregnant woman. You also get your pre-pregnancy figure back so quickly, really it makes me envious. I admire your self-control and the hard work you put in to be fit.
    I'm sure comments I've made have annoyed you, and for that I'm sorry. As on Christmas, I just couldn't seem to stop myself and felt really bad afterwards. Seven more days!

  2. Haha, I swear I didn't have Christmas in mind at all when I wrote this! (I had Arlington Hardware and church on my mind - haha.) Your comments weren't offensive at all. The "basketball" stuff doesn't bother me in the least. I promise. :)

  3. I know that you are annoyed, its normal to feel that way. But I'm gonna just say it again.... You are beautiful. Inside and out! :)

    Hang in there sweet friend - you will be back to your normal perky self in no time.

  4. Congratulations on your little one. You are so cute in this pic! Thanks for posting - I look exactly like you right now and I have 24 days to go....

  5. Hang in there, Bridgette! It's way worth it. :)


I love to hear from you!
