One of my biggest regrets about blogging is not writing through my pregnancy with Bella. I started one, posted like 2 times and let it go. I was all about The Bump back then. This time around, I’m so excited to be able to track the journey – no matter the outcome.
But, I wanted to show you what last time around looked like. Because everyone says you get bigger, faster with the second. Or most people do. So friends. FAIR WARNING.
Let me preface this by saying I didn’t “feel” this big. But after I got back to normal(ish) I found myself being a little shocked that I got big this fast. Or at least, I felt like I got really big. Or maybe it was just everyone telling me how big I was. Whatever.
I know, I know. This was taken the day before I went into labor with Bella. I was like 36 weeks and 5 days. I had been on bedrest for 5 weeks and was still throwing up. Because of this, I missed my girlfriend Erika’s baby shower, Sam worked crazy hours, and I was stuck inside in the winter all day. Notice the look on my face seeming to say, “Yeah. I’m done.”
And to think. I want to do this all over again…
It was worth it though.
