Pregnancy Pictures

I blog these pictures not for my benefit, but for my out of town family who has been requesting
pictures of me since day one of my pregnancy.

So after 9 months of asking...here you go!

8 months (March)

9 months (early April)


9 months (Late April)
This pregnancy has been a bit different. I was just as sick with this one, but noticed I threw up more, and was able to eat more. All in all, I lost about 20 to 25 lbs those first few months. I started wearing my wedding ring on my middle finger.
Then I felt really good from December until mid March I gained my weight back and was able to wear my wedding ring on my ring finger. I dealt with lots of heart burn which I expected since I had major heart burn with Mackenzie.
From mid March until now I've had some heart burn, and some new things...lots and lots of pressure in my hip/pelvic bones. I feel like my bones are about to split in half, especially at night when I switch from side to side. All this pain makes me walk like an old grandma. The left lower portion of my back aches, and I have lots and lots of swelling. So much swelling that I can't wear my wedding ring anymore. We've had a few hot days in Sacramento, and the swelling is worse with the heat. I'm learning quickly that I don't want to be pregnant in the summer.
With all this, I can't wait to welcome our baby boy (his name TBA, Dan and I can't agree).

I know exactly how you feel! Being pregnant in the heat is SO awful, I couldnt wear ANY shoes by the end of my pregnancies and if I sat for too long I had total cartoon feet, they were so swollen. I feel for you, it will all be worth it when you see your baby boy's chubby little face.:)

JANAY!!! You look fantastic (for being SO swollen, I don't see it btw). I love following your blog and catching up that way. I wish it would warm up here!

You look fabulous! I'm going to have to go through half the summer with my own personal heater, I'm not looking forward to it...

You are way too cute to be pregnant! Seriously... hot mama! Isn't it amazing that as uncomfortable as it gets, you forget everything and go through it all again and again? Wish I could be there. I'm so excited to see pictures of your little guy.

You are sooo pretty! I think the swelling and hip pain must be a boy thing...because I got way swollen with my son too and towards the end I swear I couldn't even waddle because my hips hurt so bad! I'm sooo excited to see pics of your beautiful baby boy!
