Mourning the Loss of my Belly


I was told I would miss my pregnant belly once it's gone, and at the time I thought this was crazy talk. I was told this at 38 weeks pregnant when I was at the height of my discomfort, so I found this hard to imagine. Now, 3 weeks later, I find what I thought was crazy talk wasn't so crazy after all. I was lucky to have a very smooth pregnancy. I mean nothing went wrong; Hudson never even jabbed me in ribs, so it's easy for me to mourn the loss of my belly. There is something special about being pregnant. Here is just one last look at the my pregnant belly and how it grew over the 9 months or so of my pregnancy.

Now I will not mourn the loss of the post pregnant belly that's sticking around.

  2. I loved being pregnant! Drew moved a lot and even pushed elbows and legs into my stomach wall. Could tell exactly how he was laying in my stomach. Was fun!!!!! I wish I took belly shots like this with my pregnancies:(

  3. Found your blog through Instagram. Beautiful. Isn't it amazing to see how much your body changes in just one week. I'm amazed by 34-35!
    I'll admit, even after having 2 and getting my tubes tied and KNOWING I'll never be pregnant again, I STILL miss my pregnant belly. I loved being pregnant.
