I am allowing myself to be excited about having an infant. A good friend from my ward has offered to throw a baby shower, and I'm excited for it. My mom made a cute pajama onesie and a super soft baby blanket. My Great Aunt gave me a baby blanket, and another thoughtful sister from our ward gave us a beautiful baby blanket. Already people are being very generous. We still have a lot of questions we need to find answers for, but for now, I am letting myself enjoy looking at baby stuff, and I am not worrying about stretch marks. I am sure everything will turn out the way it is supposed to.
Some pregnant ladies are so good at taking consistent pictures of their growing pregnant bellies. My pregnancies have been so emotional for me that I have not been consistent at all, but I tried to be a little better this time than I was last time. Here, for my own amusement, is my (albeit inconsistent) documentation of my belly growth.
|I am not pregnant in this picture. I use it to remind me that my body can recover. :)|
|Me: "Take a picture, Tom, I'm totally showing today." Ha ha ha... September 2012|
|February 2013. I think there's a big size jump between January and February. I went from looking like an average pregnant lady to looking bigger-than-average.|
