Hello and welcome to "Way Back Whensday", the Preggo Belly edition. You may remember my first WBW post earlier this month where I committed to sharing old photos every Wednesday because I just couldn't seem to conform to the rules of "Wordless Wednesday". I invite you all to join me in digging up your old photos and sharing them with the watching world as well!
Now, on with the photographic joys of growing a sweet baby inside!
Here I am 10 weeks pregnant with Oliver.
I'm demonstrating that he is 1 1/2" long and I am just so doggone excited!
Now 12 weeks pregnant with Oliver, (I was unemployed for the entirety of my pregnancy with O, so I had time to do this sort of thing) I used Photoshop to superimpose an actual size illustration of a baby on my belly. This is how big Oliver was in my tummy at 12 weeks. (This totally only happens with your first baby - subsequent babies are bound to get the shaft!)
This one is almost embarrassing! (And Tara, please forgive me for sharing this!) The embarrassing thing is that Tara was 40 weeks pregnant here - she had baby Hope the following day, I believe. Me, on the other hand, I was only 27 weeks pregnant here! I have no idea how I am so stinking much bigger than my tiny little cousin! And, yes, that is Lee in the background feeling left out.
Here I'm 33 weeks pregnant with O. I actually faithfully did shots every week in the same shirt and pants for the entirety of this pregnancy; front, right, back and left. You can scroll through the photos and it looks like I'm turning and growing before your eyes. Pretty cool! Again, this is something you only end up doing the first time around.
And this is where it just starts to get un-cute. I'm 40 weeks here - just a week before Oliver was born. I can't believe how puffy I got. Unreal!
These are some of the only pictures I have of me pregnant with our Evie-girl. I am 24 weeks here. I didn't grow with her like I did with Oliver. I think at this point I was still weighing less that I did when I got pregnant with her. But, that's her in there. I love these pictures of me with her!
This is one of the last photos of Evie inside of me. Claire took it at the hospital just before I was induced. I miss my sweet baby so much. Especially in these days leading up to what would be her first birthday.
Alright, that's enough bellies for one week. What do you say next week we all post photos of what we were doing exactly seven years ago - so April 2002? See you then!
