the Bump

Shame on me, but I must admit...
A sad reality that I've dealt with for a while....
and aside from the fact I can't wait to meet this baby girl...
I haven't really enjoyed being pregnant.
I know there are a lot out there who can never experience this feeling,
And I try to make the best of it, I promise!
But with all the scares we've had, this has been quite overwhelming for me.
Thinking I miscarried twice, having extra testings done, and just plain worrying I'm doing it wrong,
Wanting to be one of the cute pregnant ladies, but feeling like a walking whale
Sadly my list could go on and on.
And just when I start to think I’m the only “un-pretty” pregnant person in the world,
someone tells me I'm pretty and I don't look x-number months pregnant.
And I kind of smile.
I do love feeling her kick, punch or at times both.
It cracks me up to see my stomach do the "wave".
The time she kicked daddy when we hugged.
I don't ever want to forget all these feelings!!
But sadly I've put on a lot of weight,
My ankles have turned to cankles,
My hips hurt
And exercise is out of the picture.
Again, this list could go on and on but I won't focus on the bad/sad.
One month from yesterday is my due date,
And I can't wait to meet this baby girl. 
But baby girl, please be nice to me on delivery day!! :)

  1. Nicole, you are beautiful! Don't ever feel ugly because you are pregnant - pregnancy is a beautiful thing ♥ You are creating a miracle :D

  2. I LOVE THAT PICTURE!! I feel like most people hate pregnancy, they just feel guilty for saying it ;)

  3. You look gorgeous! I love that shot - a radiant Momma & her family :)

    Just so you don't feel alone - I've had just as many family/friends who have NOT enjoyed pregnancy as I've had ones who did. For some people it isn't the magical experience that it can be for others. Doesn't make you any less of a mother, or any less excited to meet your new baby. :)

    I can't WAIT to hear the big news of your little girl's arrival!!!! Less than a month until due date... she'll be here SO soon!! :)

  4. *hugs* ♥
    God bless you and your family.

  5. I love the picture too, and what you are wearing. I can't wait to see he rest from your shoot.

    Some of those feelings are pretty normal. I gained 42 pounds with my son and looked like i could fit a full size beach ball in my stomach. I lost 25 pounds delivering him with water and his weight. It is never fun once you start having cankles and stuff you are not used too.

    Sadly i am 100 pounds more now than i was just before i gave birth :(

  6. It is what it is, and how you feel doesn't change because others may or may not share in this blessing. what I will say is you are adorable as a pregnant mom to be and soon it will be just a memory, and you will be holding your beautiful babe! hang in there. From what I hear its worth it ! ;)

  7. I have a group of friends, one loves being pregnant, one hates it, one loves giving birth (yes strange), others hate it, some love the newborn stage, others hate it. So it is okay if you haven't loved being pregnant, it is a crazy ride that often is miserable.
