Belly

My due date is exactly three months from tomorrow, and I surprise myself every time I catch the reflection of my profile in a storefront window.  It’s like getting your hair all chopped off and hardly recognizing yourself when you look in the mirror.  What’s happening to this body?  It’s still crazy to me that it just grows on its own. I don’t have to really “do” anything. The baby and my belly just keep getting bigger and bigger.

I always wondered what I would look like pregnant.  Turns out I look a lot like this:

24 weeks

25 weeks

26 weeks

    And by “this” you mean pretty and all glowing-like, of course! :)

      yes, it’s really weird to watch your body changing that much.
      I just hope I will go back to normal after pregnancy!! :)

      I can’t wait to start moving again without feeling a huge water melon! :)

          You look so great! For me, the strangest thing about seeing my pregnant self in the mirror was that, well, I still looked like myself. When I was younger and wondering what I would look like, I guess I imagined a bigger transformation.

            Jennifer, I am surprised by my body every day. It just keeps growing, but I guess that means the little lady inside is growing, too. I have faith that my body knows what it’s doing, but it’s just so weird when I take the time to pause and look at it.
