Back to my Bump

Since I took a little break during most of my pregnancy I thought I'd share with you a bit about my life in the last few months or so. I would work on something and I think "I should blog about this!" but I never did; so I have some little projects to feature soon. The big one was Liam's room. It was a labor of love. I had my freak out moments where I thought, "This baby is not going to have a room when he gets home!" But in the end it all came together and I love it. I'll keep you waiting for that one though.
My pregnancy was fairly easy. I only got nauseous twice, and threw up both of those times. One was because I took a prenatal on an empty stomach. Ryan and I were in the car (driving to check out a craigslist side table- that ended up being a piece of plastic crap) and I wasn't feeling very good but I was about 5 months pregnant so I didn't think I would throw up since I never had any morning sickness before this point. To make a nasty, long story short... driving down a major street I decided OHHH YES, I'm gonna puke... and I couldn't get the window down in time. That's all I'll say about that...Not a pretty picture! The other time I was at home, and made it to the toilet so that was not so bad.  So overall I was thankful that I didn't have to deal with being sick during my pregnancy! I thought "Why do people always complain about being pregnant, this is a piece of cake."
Toward the end (7, maybe 7 1/2 months) I began to realize why people complain about being pregnant! Constantly being uncomfortable, and terrible sleep, aching back, tired all the time! Poor Ryan had to listen to my ongoing complaints. In the end it was so worth it though.
I was 9 months pregnant and hadn't taken any maternity photos. I started to get really bummed about that, and wanted to capture this time in our lives. It was too late to book a photographer and I really didn't want to pay for that anyways. So I enlisted my little sister who took photography for 4 years in high school (that doesn't make her a pro, but at least a better option than just anybody). We had a lot of fun taking them. I made outfit changes in a field while trying to hide from some farmer when it was 50 degrees. It was a memorable day. I already love looking at them and thinking back to Liam getting ready to come into the world. Its crazy to think how much more love is in my life now than just over a month ago.









This graffiti one is just too fun not to include...

If you go over to Spearmint Baby (a great blog!) you can see where my baby bump was featured over there too.
