Almost half way there!
With my first pregnancy, I was doing pretty good at taking baby bump pictures at least once a month. Well this time, I've let 6 weeks go by since I took a baby bump photo...Ooops! Mainly because I forget, or I don't feel pretty enough to get behind the camera to have a picture taken of me, or because chasing after a toddler exhausts me by the end of the day...
Yesterday I finally captured my 17 week (and 4 days) bump with baby #2!
Today, after reading Allison's link up post, I am linking up with Shell over at Things I Can't Say for the first time for her Rockin' The Bump link up!
I have always loved seeing women rock their baby bumps! Something about having a conversation with a woman knowing there's a little tiny kicking, punching, hiccuping baby in her belly makes me giddy! I believe that all pregnant women are beautiful! I mean come on! What isn't beautiful about carrying the miracle of life inside of you for 9 months?
Well...if you consider the nausea and vomiting, fatigue, outlandish cravings, gas pains and acid indigestion, swelling, dark skin spots, stretch marks, acne... (Need I go on?) Those things may not make you feel particularly pretty or wonderful by any means. But there's a reason that God gave woman this gift. Because we can handle it. Because we are capable of having the necessary emotional connection with our baby without having met them yet. Because we are able to immediately provide nourishment and unconditional love for this being.
It's a beautiful thing.
Baby bumps are beautiful.
Babies are miracles.
Mommies are special.
So Rock Your Bump with pride!
