Vecchio Venerdì... rockin' the bump

I have seen this linky going around and just couldn't resist.

I loved being pregnant.


I think there is very little on this earth or in this life that is more fascinating than growing a whole person inside of your own body...
sorry, guys, you are just missing out on the magic.

So here are four of my Biggest Bellies Ever...

in chronological order...

(the top two are cropped so you can't see my nipples)

February 2002... 
Baby X 
eight weeks before she was born

March 5, 2005...
thirty-six hours before he was born

March 6, 2005...
ten hours before he was born

Valentines Day, 2009...
Miss C
two and a half weeks before she was born

I never did get a good belly shot of Big G... I was sort of overwhelmed with my first pregnancy and didn't grasp how cool it would be. Each time, I gained over 40 pounds even though I approached food and exercise completely differently. And each time, I lost it all... the first time it took 2 years, and the fourth time it took 8 weeks.


  1. I've seen this link going around too and I love it as well!!! You looked great all four times!!! I loved being pregnant too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. It is amazing isn't it? 2.5 weeks after giving birth, and I already look so different! I look at Julian and cannot believe he was inside me less than three weeks ago!

  3. 8 weeks for the fourth time? Wow! My "baby" is 3 years old and I still feel like I have the baby weight. LOL

    Thanks for linking up your cute bellies!

  4. Wow, your belly shots are gorgeous. And how do you not even have any stretch marks?!?!?! Luckiest woman on earth!

  5. Love it! I'm sad to say/think I don't have all my prego belly shots :(

  6. 1) You hubs is a rad photographer
    2) You hit the genetic lottery since you just "lose it all" within weeks
    3) Your hubs is one lucky dude

  7. I haven't seen that link...I don't think I've read about 4 blogs this week though. You have a gorgeous prego belly!!! :)

  8. I love this! Thank you for sharing :-)

  9. Beautiful!! I love love love pregnancy. I feel the same way. How do I link up? I think I'll do this too! woo hoo! :)

  10. Awww, so beautiful! Found you at So Followed Saturday, and am glad I did, am a happy new follower :).


  11. Great belly pic! i had a real love/hate with being pregnant and I gained 40 lbs each time too, thank God for breastfeeding, my weight was gone and then some by six months each time.

  12. Beautiful! Love the Q-10 shot, as if you are casting a spell to coax him out...

  13. What a fun belly blog idea. I've got to join in on this tomorrow. I've got a great one of my bustin' out my muscles along with my belly.

  14. Your belly shots are beautiful!! Seriously! So glad you shared this! Glad I wasn't the only one to gain 40 plus pounds ;)

  15. All belly! It doesn't even look like you gained any weight anywhere else! And what you did gain you lost quickly? Lucky girl ;)

  16. Beautiful!! It's so much fun to check out all the momma's pics. I hated being pregnant, but I'm so glad I documented it anyway. The photos really are precious. :)

  17. Your belly must have had make up artists, because it's entirely too smooth and blemish free to have had a litter, as you "claim" to have had. ;-) Admit it! Stunt belly???

    I'm so completely fascinated by the alien-like concept of a big pregnant belly. George and I were talking about adoption over pregnancy the other day, and although I'd like to do both, I can't imagine not knowing if pregnancy feels as alien as I think it might.

  18. You have the most perfect pregnant belly! No wonder you loved being pregnant, you looked amazing!

  19. Cropped!? Hrmph.

    There is something special about a pregnant mom. I can't put my finger on what it is, but it is there for sure.


we *heart* comments!
