Rockin' the Baby Bump linkup

Picture taken June 8, 2009.  Cael was born a day and a half later!

Don't go getting any ideas that I'm pregnant people - I'm just linking up with another site for her Rockin' the Baby Bump linkup.  I promise that if & when I do get pregnant again you will all know.

Courtney & I waited a long long time before we got pregnant.  We were married for 7 years before we even tried.  We didn't even really try either, it just happened.  

I was one of THOSE pregnant women - the lucky kind.  I only felt sick 1 time when I was pregnant and it was before I even knew.  I was cooking one night and the kitchen got really hot and I felt gross.  I sat down and the feeling went away.  I found out I was pregnant about a week later.  If it weren't for the weight gain :( and growing bump I wouldn't have even known I was pregnant.

Cael grew behind the placenta & was breech so I didn't feel him kick much at all.  I felt him every time he had the hiccups & I felt little flutters but I never saw my belly move or felt big kicks.  Courtney only felt him move when he had the hiccups.

He did take a toll on my body & I am STILL, after 2 years now, trying to get it back to "normal".  I do not like my body right now but I am working at it.  I LOVED my body when I was pregnant though because of what it was doing.  It grew the most wonderful baby boy ever.  I can now look back and say I  rocked that baby bump!

Yes, you did rock it!

I was looking at my bump pics last night and hubs told me not to get any ideas. LOL

And my youngest is 3- and I still am trying to get back to pre-baby shape!

Thanks for linking up!

Pregnant bumps are the best and I totally agree...I love the way I look when I am pregnant too! But only because there is a wonderful baby in the end!

You looked great!! I have a love hate relationship with my bump. The bump I love, the backside that has come along with the bump, not so much.

I was the same, I rarely got sick either. Just uncomfortable.
