To Bare the Belly, Or Not To...that is the question

When I was first pregnant, I really thought I was going to do the whole belly pic every few weeks and journal the journey through photos of my growing gut. Three miscarriages later, I just never started. I think it was a combination of not wanting to jinx things when I was pregnant with Grayson, and in all honesty, being kinda grossed out at times by my own belly and not wanting to subject others to it. :-)

So this time around, I thought about starting it early. I really did. I even have a great What to Expect app on my iphone that lets you take the pics and store them in there. But I just never started. Again, I think I was afraid things wouldn't last at first. Plus, I didn't do it for Grayson, and I wanted to be fair for my kids and all.

Then, Katie asked if I had any belly pics to share, and I decided that although I didn't yet, I'd at least do one. Now I kinda wish I'd done it with Grayson to compare. I sure feel a whole lot bigger this go around than last.

So, here I be. 17 weeks, 3 days. It's okay if you are grossed out. I am a little bit too.

Beautiful. Miss you! Wish I were there to pat your baby belly... then realize I'm one of those weirdos who touches pregnant women's bellies and apologize :)

Oh, your belly is gorgeous!!!!!

And I am kind of jealous, because you LOOK pregnant, whereas I just look pudgy.
