the last week of being with child.

so the only reason i'm posting these pictures is because some people called me out on it. you darn good listeners. you don't blog only pretty things...you post life. i have repented of my blog sins, and will now post these pictures as penance. while my husband rubs my feet. my ankles are seriously almost unable to be found.you have to rub my feet to keep my feet from looking old. that's what i tell my husband. i'll have glistening, young feet at age 90. i just know it.

here are some from a photo booth. that's right, i wore a denim jacket to a wedding. it was inappropriate, but it fit. and that's what counts in life. it fit, dammit...it fit.and i can't say that about 15/16th's of my clothing.


i gained 35lbs...not 40 as i predicted. i guess i do have 5 more days to gain 5lbs actually. twix...mmm...
this picture is an optical illusion. this mirror is like, made by angels...it's really weird, but this is not how i really look.


this is kind of more like it. i mean, still doesn't show my kankles though. mommy looking rough...camera in front of face for a reason.

my butt has really become well-rounded. well rounded in the study of growing cellulite.

i'm getting induced on monday. so that's awesome. baby is fine, i'm fine...don't worry your hippie hearts, i enjoy a good induction and an epidural. this is something i am super not into being hippie about. send me your hate messages, this preggars doesn't care. i get to meet the peanut on monday. you can't stop me.

  1. I was induced, and with it being my first, I listened to the nurses who said I didn't need an epidural. That was 4 years ago. Now, I would SO punch someone in the face for saying I couldn't have an epidural during an induced labor.

    Praying for a quick and safe delivery for you!

  5. I had an epidural both times with my two. The first time because I just wasn't dilating and the pitocin was killing me. And the second time I had to be induced and the pitocin was killing me. Loves me some epidural. I tried to go drug-free the 1st time, but the nurses "talked me out of it". Good Luck!!! So excited for you!!!

  9. Well, I have 6 weeks to go and am already at 35 pounds--it is quite gross.
    I know you don't believe me, but you are skinny everywhere except that belly.
    You look great.
    And I hate you.
    Through the course of my 3 other pregnancies, I have been called Titanic, obese, and told even my lips look fatter.
    Nice.
    So, enjoy your last weekend with kankles. I'll be enjoying mine for another 41 days. Not that I'm counting.
    Happy Baby!
    Love from,
    Greta

  10. You seriously crack me up.

    No shame in induction or epidural. Own it with pride.

    Good luck. Btw, you look amazing. All baby. You'll be back in your skinny jeans in no time. (especially if you are like me and have to go buy said skinny jeans to start with.) ;)

  11. You look adorable..for reals. no judging here...I was induced with both my girls & i think inductions RULE! Good luck!!!!

  12. you look so cute! my belly is square when i'm pregnant and i would kill for anything that resembles a butt at any point in my life. happy baby having, you. :)

  13. 1. Rocking denim jean jackets at a wedding when your 9 months preggers is totally appropriate.
    2. I want that mirror in your house. Send it to me right now. I'm bossy like that.
    3. I heard you got a new 5D. Happy Freakin Mother's Day girl!!! :)

  27. Oh your beautiful belly... Only very slightly in another life kinda way does it make me want to be pregnant again. Yea for monday! Can't wait to meet your papoose.

    Love,
    Jenn

  34. You tell those hatuuuurrrs! Ha! Love the belly and your butt looks better than mine and I have yet to have children. Well son of a biscuit! {Sigh} one day, I will have children, and I will have an epidural, possibly get induced, and then to finish it all up, I'll get myself a mommy make over :)

    Best of Luck on Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  41. whatever, you look awesome. hooray for meeting the baby!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wahoo! Baby a comin'! I went two weeks overdue with my first because I wanted to be all natural and shtuff. I ended up having an epidural somewhere in the hazy pain that was 48 hours of labor and the birth of my 9 1/2 lb bruiser. Yeah, I'm totally down with epidurals, inductions, whatever it takes to just get the thing out as quickly and painlessly as possible!
    Currently five months preggers with my fourth and have already gained 15 lbs, so I don't wanna hear none of your lip, missy. You look awesome! I, meanwhile, weigh as much as I did when I entered the hospital to give birth to my second.
    Praying for a quick, pain-free, sweet and holy moment for you and your bubs.

  43. I've had 4 kids. (and never looked as good as you do at the end) The 4th was the only one that was not induced. Had her on Christmas day. Little stinker. She wanted to ruin Christmas for her brothers and sister. I love epidurals! I tried it once without it. Nightmare! People who haven't had epidurals were not induced! That is a whole different beast! Blessings to you and your sweet bundle!

  45. Yay for you!! You are going to be great. And that baby is destined to be cute. Can't wait to hear all the messy details.

    ReplyDelete
  46. What?! You can labor without an epidural?! Never heard of such a thing. I am all for a good epidural! And I begged for it with both kids... I was mighty comfy. I'll take that.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Epidurals rock. I got to about a 7before I got mine. I also have plenty of junk in my trunk that I could give you, but my husband probably would complain. I will hate it if you drop off the face of the earth for months like you tend to do, but I will completely understand.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I think your belly rocks. Seriously. And your butt simply can not touch all the junk in my trunk, and I'm not even pregnant!

    Can't wait to see the new addition to your family.

    ReplyDelete
  49. oh my gosh, you make me laugh so hard, especially the last paragraph. seriously stop. i'm 4 months pregnant with baby two and i'm so with you.
    Prayers for a safe Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  50. hahah I LOVE YOU!!! happy induction!! :) and you still look amazing!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'll be sad to see those buns go. farewell.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Both of mine were induced... loved it! And labor without an epidural... no thank you! Will be praying for you on Monday! Can't wait to see pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whatever dude you should see my butt and I don't even have pregnancy as an excuse. Your butt looks great. And absolutely non judgement from this hippie. It should be illegal to have a baby with out drugs. It's not human. No one should go through that kind of pain. Praying for you.

  54. Mommy looking rough.....WHATEVER! I think you look great! I LOVE that belly! You are so cute and I can't believe I'm going to be seeing shots of that little pumpkin soon! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Monday! How exciting! Looking forward to pictures. (You look great, btw).

    ReplyDelete
  58. Your baby bump is the cutest! Some of us have huge buns on a regular basis...I'm scared of what mine will be when preggers.

    ReplyDelete
  59. yay for meeting baby...... you are still too cute. shut your mouth girly. =)

    ReplyDelete
  60. yay for monday! yay for epidurals! yay for only gaining 35 lbs
    Of course you get no judgement from me. I have had 2 surgically born children so far. It does make it easier when Logan asks how babies are born. I tell him that the dr cut him out and thats that. haha.
    I will be praying for you Monday. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!

    ReplyDelete
  61. you are an adorable prego! and you still have no butt. best of luck!
