Quick Preview...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know we did and I ate entirely too much turkey...and mashed potatoes...and sweet potatoes...and well, just about anything that was put in front of my face. Pig! And for all you voters out there...you're all terribly kind but terribly WRONG... I've totally put on 35+ lbs now. Yes, I certainly have. I'm attributing this to the fact that I just had three baby showers (with lots of cake), a birthday (with lots of cake) AND Thanksgiving (with lots of everything), but still...I'm SO going to hit 40 lbs. any day now, like maybe my next doctor's appointment on Wednesday. EEK!

Here are a couple of my favorite maternity shots from my fabulous friend Jenn (
jenniferlynnphotography.blogspot.com). More to come in a slideshow format along with pics of Lucy's room!





**Please note, the picture with candy and cheesecake, which have been my #1 cravings as I don't usually like sweet stuff, was an idea shamelessly stolen from the maternity shoot of Jill at
babyrabies.com, one of my favorite bloggers. Hey, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?*

Hurray! You look great. You gotta love bit belly pics before the big day.

Hang in there... my smallest baby was the pregnancy where I gained the most!

If that's what 35 pounds looks like, I'll take it! ;-)

And I remember Jill's shoot - great idea to snag some of the ideas - love your pics!

FSD said...

Your pics look awesome! So fun!!! I don't know how you looked pre-preggers, but you must have been tiny because you look great! I wouldn't worry about the weight gain....AT ALL!

Heather said...

You look so cute! Love the cheesecake pic.

I like the one with turquoise shirt. That is my fave one! You are due on New Year's day, that is so exciting, and who knows you might get to meet your baby in 2008!

YOU are gorgeous! It's funny, looking at your perfectly round belly makes me miss mine! Can't wait to see the rest, Jennifer did an amazing job!

Those are great pics! Don't worry about the weight -- I am convinced you gain more weight with girls. That is what I tell myself anyway. =)

First of all, I want to tell you how great you look in your pregnancy pictures and how I have been following your story for quite sometime now.

You see I too was struggling like you,but not for so long. Basically I was ready to do IVF when all of a sudden my period never came. And BooM! I am pregnant and expecting June 2009. But my story was far complicated. All I know is that I think about how your life truly turned around and always remember the miracle of a baby.

You had a long struggle but a very happy ending and I know how happy you must be feeling and I can honestly relate to everything that has happened to you.

I am now embarking on this same journey and sometimes feel scared that I may loose it because I have been wanting a baby so much. But every time I get worried I venture to your log, and it makes me feel safe and I pray to God that I also have a happy ending like yours.

I am so happy for you and from so much planning and wanting you and your husband will make the coolest, greatest, sweetest parents Lucy can ever have. You are always in my blessings...I can't wait to see how she looks....I am sure she will be as beautiful as you.

All My Best
Pat
