Bump, Bump

Yesterday was Eddie’s birthday. I don’t have my mind sorted out yet about how in the world he could already be four, so I can’t talk about that yet.

What I can do, is travel back in time with you.  Back to my days when Eddie…and Charlie…still called my uterus home.  When they used my organs as soccer balls.

Two summers ago, when we were trying to get pregnant with Charlie, my friend, Shell, did a link up called Rock the Bump, so I showed everyone what I looked like pregnant with Eddie.

She is doing it again this year, so I thought I would do a bump comparison of sorts.  You can watch the ever-changing picture/decoration behind me too.

 

And so it begins.  I look so much more excited and not so tired while pregnant with Eddie.

Six months...poking out a bit more with Charlie.

Oh dear. I was just not good during my pregnancy with Charlie. It's like I am wearing that antenatal depression right out there.

8 months is apparently the month where I give up. Also? HOT MESS.

BAM! 9 months! I start to resemble a person again...but only because I know the end is so darn close!

I think the moral here is that you are more tired with the second pregnancy because you have the results from the first pregnancy running around under your feet.

I’m also over at The Writer Revived today talking about the things I realize about becoming a stay at home mom for the summer. I would love it if you would head over and give it a read!
Don’t forget that Google Reader is going away July 5!

I totally wasn’t going to do it.

I’ve been bummed this week that we aren’t pregnant…again.  So I was certainly not going to go back and look at myself all pregnant with Eddie.

And I wasn’t going to look at the pictures that people posted either.  I was bitter at the bumps.

But then my friends started to have babies and announce pregnancies.

And I may have given in and peeked at some baby bumps.

There may have been swooning and melting.

I realized that all these bumps?  Are inspiration!  This is what I want!  I want to be pregnant and all bump-y!

So here I go…linking it up with Shell and her ROCKIN’ THE BUMP Link up! (which reminds me to also rock the vote for some reason…huh).

So come with me down memory lane as we remember what it looked like to grow a new Sluiter….

People?  This is what I look like NOW.  I wish it was because there was a baby in there.

And yes, we started with five months because I just looked fat until then.

 

five months pregnant
not waving…just telling you I am five months pregnant

 

Next we have the six month photo…

 

six months pregnant

getting bigger...which makes my butt look smaller. #win

 

my hair is about to get awesome…and then horrible…and then awesome again.

 

seven months pregnant

yes, that is a hair clip holding my shirt tight. and the funny thing? I thought I couldn't get any bigger.

 

why did my butt look better at 7 months pregnant than it does now?

Sigh…moving on…

 

eight months pregnant

dear god why did Cort let me do the 8 month shot looking like THIS???

 

Why yes, I epitomize classy.

And the last month shot…I ROCK those flowers…

 

nine months pregnant

BOOM! FLOWERS!

 

This is really not the last shot.  I would be remiss if I didn’t give you the shot of me three days away from delivering the boy…..

 

nine months pregnant bridesmaid

guess what we did before Eddie was born?

 

Yup.  I was a bridesmaid for my sister-in-law, MacKenzie.

Three days later?  Eddie was here.

It must have been my booty shaking on the dance floor…

 

dancing at nine months pregnant

notice the lean in Cort had to do.

…or something.

Now go check out more cute bumps.

I will be over here…rubbing my tummy on my computer screen for inspiration…

…or something.

ahem
