I found this...

15weeks prego (2)
This was me 15 weeks prego with Brody.

  I have more of a belly than that NOW and I'm 13 weeks.  *sigh.  Don't go getting excited, I'm not going to gain weight massively.  I refuse.  JK.  But I do refuse... Although, the exercise starts as soon as I'm done with my photo shoots.  (I crammed a bunch in before i left and now I'm working as much as I can to get them done....whenever there aren't flipping tornadoes taking over my day.)

 I've had really bad headaches with this one... I read that's normal so I'm not going to let it bother me as much.  Moving on..

And then I found this:

This was me ON my due date with Brody.  9 months and counting...This isn't even one of the worst pictures but yikes.  I POP... and I know it has to do with my short torso.  So be warned.
At any rate, I've been obsessing about weight since I can remember (in a healthy way of course, I don't consider it a weakness per se)- it's even worse when I'm pregnant but I've decided this would be my last rant.   I'm going to trrrrry to not mention how enormous I feel to Tony (ok that part is a weakness)- and I'm going to just enjoyyyyy everything and everyday. (That shouldn't be hard, life is grand)
Here's to enjoying everything and everyday, that goes for you too. (*raises figurative cup of sparkling cider to computer screen) hmmm.. that sounds good now.

After all, it's really about the bouncing baby I bring into the world.  It's all about HIM or HER and who cares if I feel like hiding in a closet all day because I will soon become an object of points and stares.  I'm COMIN OUT!  um.... not like.nevermind.  I can do without the belly groping from strangers though, that's all I ask.  No touchy! (that'll be a while from now anyway)

That's what it's all about, Charlie Brown.  That, right there.  I can't wait!

Hmm... you can tell I didn't know a lick about a quality picture back then... yikes, these look ancient.  I'm so glad this time around I can get some decent photos! (I'm teaching Tony how to use my camera!! Weeee!)
Now off to get me some real cider.... or maybe some pie.... ha!  liez
(And hello to some new followers!  Welcome to the madness these ramblings about my life) It's especially nice to know who reads!  Can't forget those old timers though...what up to you too=]

Its easy to feel ginormous when you just look like you've been hitting the donuts instead of the gym! But once it looks like there's a person in there its more bareable.

PS. You should try the secret fit maternity pants from Motherhood. They are fairly new and the most comfy maternity pants ever! And they have a nude colored belly so they don't show through your shirt!

I can't wait until we start trying again for another, but for right now...a 5 month old is all I can handle! Babies are so precious! I wish I obsessed more about my weight b/c I really need to lose some. (Actually, I do obsess about it, but I also obsess about where I going to get my next fix of chocolate) Eventually, I hope the light will flash on & I'll get motivated enough to start working out again. I'm just so tirrreeeddd!!! *whine*

You are the most adorable prego person ever :)

Alexa Mae said... Reply To This Comment

you are darling so prego. it is going to be fun to watch you grow with the tiny one. look at teeny tiny brody! he's sooo cute.

Mauri said... Reply To This Comment

even though you may feel huge, you are in fact tiny. Even 9 months prego-tiny. I'm hoping I stay little and just pop when I get pregnant one day. I have a small torso. Either that or it will all distribute everywhere else & I'll be one big oompa loompa bloob. eeek...I don't want to think about that. Little baby Brody=adorable!!

Karm said... Reply To This Comment

Oh My! You are beautiful! I like yoru photos, they are wonderful memories to cherish, I wish I had taken photos during any of my pregnancies, but I didn't want to see any pics of me...
yes, take it day by day, rest, rest, rest (:

crissy said... Reply To This Comment

Brea said... Reply To This Comment

Whitney said... Reply To This Comment

I know you feel huge but Even at 9 months and counting with Brody Im envious at how amazing you looked. Seriously! I swell up like quazimodo or shrek. you take your pick.

Pia said... Reply To This Comment

I love those pictures!! A pregnancy is just SO exciting and I can't wait until I am ready to have a baby myself. Reading your post seriously gives me baby fever.

Melody said... Reply To This Comment

So, when are you going to post your belly now? Love, Mother Be Proud of Motherhood!

Connie said... Reply To This Comment

Do not mock me woman for I am in a foul disposition! (ha- just kidding... name that movie)...

Just the... "be proud of motherhood!" I AM! I Sooooooo am. Wasn't sure if that was advice or not. (;

And thanks to everyone else for the sweet comments. I have the best readers and friends. :D

OHhhh.... and I shant post a belly pic till I feel the protruding is legit. I think it's a little early to be showing so I don't really want to document it. Just not yet. HAHA!

Lauren said... Reply To This Comment

Oh Connie. You couldn't get fat if you tried. But I could do without the belly groping from strangers. What are they thinking when they do that anyway?

JED said... Reply To This Comment

Gee Connie, I think you are beautiful pregnant or not. I miss seeing you and wish you'd post recent pictures so your mom and I can enjoy your progress. You have always had such pretty hair...
