I’ve gained 10 pounds thus far in this pregnancy. Due to my battle with the scale AFTER Gooner was born, it is REALLY hard to see the scale go up.
It’s all for a good cause. Believe me. I get it. I feel her move…all the time. She’s a super happy reminder of why getting sick in the bathroom and why most food sounds gross to me. It’s worth it. And the clothing… If I could wear yoga pants all day every day, I think I’d be fine but my pregnancy jeans…have mercy! I just don’t feel like the adorable pregnant lady that I SEE at Target. I feel more like the blimp whose wedding rings no longer fit…
Self image is a tender thing. Even watching what I eat, I am noticing things changing…perhaps softening? I’ve been working out 6 days a week and THAT has been great YET, I KNOW what is coming…and I’m not talking about labor. I’m talking about that after labor JELLY feeling. When you realize you can touch your backbone through your stomach because your abs are GONE. And though you have just GIVEN BIRTH – the marathon of your life – you realize just how much work you have yet to do.
And truthfully, it will be here soon. I got a coupon in the mail that expires one day after Sooner is due.
Gooner and I tried to get a belly shot for you….it didn’t work.
Surprised that it is almost November and we are in spaghetti straps? Don’t be, it’s currently 77!!!!
