Ok, so it's not the best picture from this week, but it is the only picture that my belly is not covering up the words on the chalkboard. :-/
Yesterday we took Braysen to Monster Jam, but I'll do a separate post on that later.
26 weeks and still growing and growing, obviously. As of this week I have gained the same amount of weight I had gained by the time I delivered with Braysen. Yikes! I am still not quite at my weight that I was at when I delivered because I was a few pounds lighter when this pregnancy began. According to my doc's request, I still have about 20-something pounds to go. Holy moly! I've come to terms with the fact that I will probably never wear a bikini again. Don't get me wrong, I know I will lose all the weight, but I also know that my body will be way different after this pregnancy as compared to my first. And oddly enough, I'm ok with that:
- I'm 30 years old
- The babies' health and birth weight is way more important to me than my post-baby body
- I think I've probably clocked more than enough time in a swimsuit for any one person's life
- I'll have 3 kids to chase around, how the heck would I find the time/opportunity to be in a swimsuit?! :)
We have our 3D/4D ultrasound later today and I am sooo excited to get a sneak peek of these babes!
