More Than a Bump...


I haven't posted "bump" pictures for awhile.
Mostly because I haven't bothered to actually get myself ready for pretty much the month of January.

I dislike January in Iowa. Bleh.

These pics are already 2 weeks old...That's how long it took me to actually hook the camera to the computer. I think I'm in my own form of hibernation here.
Kinda like Odie.

As you can see...I'm not sure the term "bump" is still appropriate. We're well past the bump stage, heading into the "Wow, when are you do?!?" stage. I get huge. Fourth baby, fourth time getting huge. Been there, done that.

It's just how it is.




Only 11 more weeks to go. The funny thing is...I'm really excited to meet this little baby and all, but I've learned a few things along this journey of motherhood. No matter how huge and uncomfortable I may get towards the end of the pregnancy...it's still WAY easier while the little one is still in there. Way. And, I know I'll miss this huge body once it's gone. I'll miss the feeling of that little one squirming around. So, I'm just gonna enjoy every minute...and eat like a horse.

  1. Have fun, and you're right! How much longer? I keep forgetting! Seems like it's gone fast - at least as a spectator it has!

  4. You're not huge, you're adorable. And you're right -- way easier while they are still on the inside. Keep enjoyin' it :)

  6. You don't look that big to me. But man -- I know how it feels. I swear I'm going to explode before Baby #4 makes his arrival in May.

    Here's to spring, eh?

  7. I love these pictures! You look wonderful.
    I am so glad you are enjoying it. Feeling that little one move is incredible isn't it?
    How right you are about it being so much easier with the baby in there... :)

  10. I think you look wonderful!!!!!
    I wish I had looked that cute pregnant.
    And one of the things I miss the MOST about being pregnant is being able to eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted.
    BTW - Tuna Fish Gravy is something my grandmother made. She was very poor as a child -sometimes even going without food -- and I think this came out of necessity.
    It is just good ole' gravy like you would make if you were making biscuits and gravy and you just add a can of tuna to it when it starts thickening. I serve it over toast. I really like it (but I do like tuna) and it reminds me of my grandparents.
    Maybe when I get to heaven my Granny will cook for me again ;)

  16. How adorable are you!!! And your belly is the only thing that is growing. So, that makes me officially jealous since my legs and my booty think they need to grow just as big as my belly.:)

    Enjoy the rest of your 11 weeks! He/She will be here before you know it.

  17. That belly is coming along nicely! lol I loved being pregnant and some times I do miss the feeling of them rolling around in my belly. I try to remember but it is hard. Enjoy it while you can and squeeze every memory and feeling into a bottle and put it in the closet on the shelf!

  20. You really are adorable! I remember walking through the first two right along side you. Kinda wishing I was with you on this one, too, but I know God has a plan for our "little" family. Just as He has a plan for your "big" family. Funny how 4 suddenly makes you a "big" family!!

  21. You are a beautiful pregnant lady....My kids are teenagers now and I STILL miss that feeling of them inside me. And, YES it was MUCH easier.

  22. I don't think you're huge at all! You don't know huge...I'll leave it at that. Only your belly is growing anyway. The rest of your body still looks fit and trim. Your face looks slim as ever and I love your hair. Glad you came out of hibernation, if only for a moment. :-)

  27. I believe you are the only other mom I know who has ever acknowledged that "no matter how huge and uncomfortable I may get towards the end of the pregnancy...it's still WAY easier while the little one is still in there." : )

    Congratualations on four! It's a pretty good number...
