Bare Belly... Just Because

The third trimester is hitting me like a mac truck.  I am so inexplicably exhausted suddenly just like I was during a good part of the first trimester.  The fatigue I experienced this winter was the worst part of this pregnancy so far and I really hope that it isn't returning as some say it does.  I'll chalk up my three and a half hour nap Sunday evening where I accomplished nothing except drooling on a pillow on my couch to the ridiculous weekend I had at work.

But other than that I am feeling wonderful.  Since I am going to an OB appointment this morning and will be weighed and see numbers that will make me want to cry and since I haven't shared belly photos in a while, let alone a bare belly photo, I decided to share some with you!  Bare with my messy, tied up hair and weird expressions...  looking pretty has been too much effort the last few days.   Lord knows how I'll look after a pile of sleepless nights with a newborn!  Ha.




Less than 12 weeks to go...  Holy cow.

Sad to say, but yes, the exhaustion is probably here to stay for a while. I've heard the sleeplessness at the end of the pregnanc is to prepare you for the sleeplessness once the baby is here. But at least after the babay comes, whatever sleep you do get is usually REALLY good! So keep up the naps. You look great though. I'm jealous of your non strechmarked belly!

You are darling! Enjoy these special days, because 20 years from now, you will remember them and will not believe that the years have flown by. It seems trite to always talk about how time eludes us, but trust me....it does.Enjoy! Loving seeing these special photos. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks! :)

One reason I took these photos is for the lack of stretch marks (so far)... so for posterity's sake I would have some record of it! ha

Both times I was pregnant, I took belly shots the last three months and now, my kids {4 & 6} LOVE looking at those photos! They are just amazed that they were in my belly at the time of those photos.....and I'm sure your little one will as well:)

Don't worry, you'll make up for it when the 'nesting' instinct hits and you work your little butt off getting everything pristine for the event! Then, you go back to totally exhausted... Have some tea and take a nap, whenever you can. (Wouldn't hurt to learn power-napping, either!) Come visit when you can.

Aw, I'm happy to see your belly shots! Mostly because my belly is staying exactly where its stretch mark covered insanity belongs...in a shirt! You look great. :-)

I'm 27 weeks and have all of a sudden been feeling EXHAUSTED again too! I am sorry that you're feeling tired but it's good to know it's not just me! You look amazing, by the way!

Look at you, pretty mama! I'm loving the belly shots! :)

Awww, you look great!! :D I know what you mean about the exhaustion. Being hugely pregnant is not easy, it's hard to pump all that extra blood around! My resting heart rate was way elevated when I was pregnant, I always blamed the exhaustion on that. Add in the heartburn and the achy/loose joints every time you sit down for more than 10 seconds... vent away!
