So come back in time with me to an era where the bump was simply just that… a bump. This sweet little round addition to my belly was so dainty and cute and, dare I say it, small. Which is fair enough as I was only 20-something weeks pregnant!
Flash forward to now, I am now 38 weeks (considered full-term), and as you can imagine, the bump is no longer a bump. It’s doubled in size and is heavy and extremely hard to carry with me everywhere. But as I have been so super sick since the very beginning… I decided it was time to start sharing some of the pregnancy pics I have taken.
Beware: They are rare, and few and far between. But at least I took some, right?
These photos are from a trip that Rohan and I took to Central Park, while my Dad and Sister were visiting us in December for Christmas (in fact, I believe this was Christmas Eve)!
It was freezing. A beautiful day, but the lakes, trees and landscape was quite literally frozen. It was actually quite nice to stroll around in a dress. Go figure. You wouldn’t believe it, but this ASOS Maternity Dress is now on sale for only $18.50!!! I have worn this dress numerous times from my second trimester, all the way through til now. The fabric is stretchy and super comfortable (and trust me, you want those things above anything else, especially the further along you get in your pregnancy).
I haven’t spoken out much about our pregnancy experience through the blog or my social media. We are very excited to meet our little girl, but pregnancy sure has given me a new perspective of motherhood and challenged me in ways I never imagined. It’s such a different experience for every person… and unfortunately, I got the short end of the stick when dealing with symptoms.
My nausea was my main point of concern from the very beginning. Which followed me through my whole entire pregnancy. Thankfully my doctor prescribed me medication to help subside the effects, even still.
But enough about the lows… I am just looking forward to holding our baby girl in our arms! And to know it could be any day now, is a comfort in itself. I can’t wait to finally sleep again (from what I’ve heard, I’ll get more sleep once she’s born, than I am at the moment). Let’s hope that’s the truth!
Bring on March 16 (or any day from now)…
