Belly Shots 6, 13, 14, 17, & 18 Weeks

     They are long awaited I know!  There was a bit of a gap because we were out of town or I was sick and didn't feel like taking pictures.  Sorry.  :(  However, I think the ones I have will show you just when I popped anyway.  It's still really weird to me.  Looking down at my tummy I think, "I don't look pregnant."  Then I turn sideways and look in the mirror and BAM!, there's a belly there.  I do have to say, I'm probably the only pregnant woman in the world who doesn't want to be told I don't look pregnant.  There is a belly there people and it must be acknowledged.  I think my biggest issue with this is that I worked hard for six months to lose weight and look skinny.  When someone tells me that I don't look pregnant and they don't notice my belly, I feel a twinge of pain at the thought that instead of looking pregnant, I look fat.  Because this not what my body looked like when I lost all my weight.  My WHOLE front side was A LOT smaller.  The idea that all my hard work really meant nothing to my outward appearance is upsetting.  To me I look pregnant, though it can be more difficult to tell through the baggy pj shirts I wear most often.  Also, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm REALLY insecure and to hear I don't look pregnant, my subconscious mind translates into "You aren't really pregnant."  One of my three top love languages is Words of Affirmation.  I think that applies here.  I need positive feedback, like basically all the time.  :)

     Anyway, that was just me venting.  Thank you for listening.  :)  Onto PICTURES!!  Huzzah!


  

     I don't think I've changed much anywhere else besides my tummy.  There's a pretty obvious growth there.  Haha.  You'll have to forgive the angles.  We don't have a great camera and I always insist on "No Flash" so it makes it difficult for poor Ty.  I'm going to have to start buying some maternity T's because you can tell there's some stretching going on.  I do love how you can kinda see how my leggings are still kinda big for me right now.  :)  That makes me happy.

  4. You totally look pregnant! You look really great. Take a few bare tummy ones for yourself and Ty to remember. I didn't take any, and then I got massive stretch marks and I wished I had taken some bare ones before I was attacked by a tiger. I mean, before I got all stretched out. ;)
