this could be huge...

So I've been slacking on having Keith take the same belly pics of me this time as when I had him do with Luke. Between napping and chasing Luke, it just really hasn't been a priority around the Walt household. I finally got my act together this past weekend and had him take a 13 week picture.

Before I post the picture, I have some background information that I feel is completely necessary to share before exposing my belly to you. Before Baby Drama 2009 occurred here last week, I had really maintained a very healthy eating regimen and put forth serious effort to not too much extra stuff. I did not want to gain a lot of unneeded weight, and although everything I was eating tasted like it was coated in a thick layer of dirt, I struggled through. Post BD09-careful no more. With my new found perspective on how fleeting this pregnancy could be, I am now set to enjoy every single second of it. It I want Doritos, I'll eat Doritos (and I did). If I want movie theater popcorn with butter, then I will have just that (and I did). And if a 10 pc. McDonald's chicken nugget meal is screaming my name, I will answer the call and eat it (and I did). Keith has been really great about the whole thing too. He doesn't make any comments about my appetite and politely gets me what I ask for. It's just nice to have an appetite at all these days because it was non-existent during the first 12 weeks of this journey.

First, a before picture. Granted this is the before picture from when I was pregnant with Luke, but I was back to the same size and shape when I got pregnant this time.


And now the comparison. The first picture is me 12 weeks pregnant with Luke. The second picture is me 13 weeks pregnant currently. I'm not sure I like where this is going...

You're not alone...the second one sneaks up on ya much quicker than the first! Everyone says it's cause your body "remembers what it's like to be pregnant" Whatever the reason, it pretty much stinks! You look great, so don't worry about it!

You look great! I still have not gotten to my "pre-baby" size and mine's over two years old! Good for you for not worrying about everything you eat! Enjoy it! Do what you want when you want and don't worry!

I think you still look wonderful!! And if it makes you feel any better, I don't even have the stomach you had before the babies and I don't even have a baby!!

From what I hear, the second one pops out faster than the first. Which I'm sure is not what you want to hear. :) You still look great!

Heather said...

You are such a cute pregnant girl! Glad you are enjoying your pregnancy to the fullest!
