37 Weeks Down, 3 more to go...



Last night I asked Ryan to take a couple belly pictures for me to document our pregnancy progress. The last belly pic taken was at 19 weeks, so I figured it was about time. About an hour before he took the pictures, he had given me a hug and said, "Babe, I'm sorry you have to get so big to carry our babies. It has to be really uncomfortable." So before the pics were taken, I knew I was getting big. But it wasn't until afterwards that I realized just how big I really was. You know those days when you look in the mirror and suddenly realize, "Wow, I really am that short!" and then it's all you can think about? Yeah. 

So, here is my 37 week pregnant belly in all its glory. This has been the roughest of all my pregnancies, but I do have to say that it hasn't been too bad, thanks to a wonderful hubby and helpful girls! Now we just have 3 weeks left to prepare for this little girl's arrival. We are getting so excited!

Anna you look great. And you are a fantastic mom! I totally know how you feel when you realize how "big" you are. I really didn't realize how large I was until I saw my picture. I decided to take a 32 week picture just so I can have more evidence and stop living in denial. I realized Saturday that I don't need to stand sway back and push my stomach out as far as possible to look big. So, my 32 week picture will not be sway backed or have me pushing it out...I'm nervous! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! Miss you.

You're just so petite that your belly LOOKS bigger than it is. Maybe I'll put up one more picture.. but then again maybe not. :) Good luck with the last couple weeks!! Maybe at this rate our babies will come at the same time. HA!

Truly, it looks like a child is standing on your spinal cord, perpendicular to the ground, but when you take into account the fact that you are like three feet tall and weigh about 30 pounds, it just figures. Just remember that it's almost over! And while the belly looks big, the rest of you is as teeny as ever. Good luck!
