My lumpy bumpy...incognito

For most of the pregnancy I have whined about the fact that I have not had a cute, round baby bump. Yes, it is my fault. I am a chubby chick. But it didn't change the fact that I wanted to experience every pregnancy related thing and looking pregnant ranked pretty high on my list as did maternity photos. At my baby shower in July I took my first baby bump photo and it was good. The shirt that I was wearing helped a lot. I have worn clothes that made me look pregnant since i was about 5 months along. And for a chubby gal that is not easy to do. I spent the last 11 years trying not to look pregnant, now here I am trying my darndest to "show". Then yesterday my mom called and said that my uncle wanted a current photo of me and my bump. I groaned. I know that I am bigger but I still have a B shaped belly and when I sit down it morphs into a squishy mass of fat cells. But I had hubby take one for me anyway. And Holy Cow!! I am huge! I was shocked at just how large my belly has gotten. It is still a B belly, but with the right pose and shirt you can hardly tell. I showed my sister the photo and she talked me into going to get maternity photos done. So I did! And I am so glad that I did. I have tried to embrace my belly and these photos really do that, lumpy bumpy and all. So without further ado, here they are:

  10. It is a beautiful baby belly!!!! I am a medium sized girl...not skinny, not too fluffy...but it seems I always have a bit of a B shaped belly too...I just think that is how some of us carry our babies. I really only round out near the end....You will never regret capturing these moments and Maddie will love seeing them. So glad you did it.
