First let me apologize for the skin-baring photos this week. I never thought I’d show the belly in all it’s glory, but something about being at 9 months makes me want to document every little thing from here on out. So please overlook the nasty appendectomy scar, belly button piercing hole, newly outie belly button, and overall hilariousness of my lop-sided gut and realize—THERE’S A BABY IN THERE! I can’t wait to show my little girl these photos someday and say “That’s you!!”
By the end of this week, little Baby C will be considered “full term” at which point I will be eating all the spicy foods I can find, to coax this girl out of my swollen belly! Truly the anticipation is already driving me nuts. Every little backache and contraction (which I’m guessing are just Braxton Hicks) has me imagining calling the hubby and saying those sacred words [like in the movies], “It’s time.” My other reaction [to the aches and pains that could mean labor]? Panic. At this point I’m exhausted more often than not, so the idea of giving birth just sounds completely impossible to me. But you know what? I think I have plenty of incentive to get me through—I mean, like I said before: THERE’S A BABY IN THERE!
In these photos: vintage tshirt (cut into a tank top by moi), vintage bracelets and rings, Hard Tails yoga pants (every pregnant woman should own these!! they also do wonders at flattening a tummy on non-pregos)
