31 weeks

31 weeks pregnant | photos by my truly beautiful friend, Claire

This big, bountiful belly of mine is growing rounder and heavier by the day. I so distinctly remember the same feeling in Che and Poet's pregnancies and I resisted it entirely. But this time, I'm relishing in the slowing down and the late pregnancy voluptuousness. I admit, I love being pregnant. Despite the heat and reflux and restless legs, growing babies grounds me. It's also a profound reminder of what matters most in life; it's not an experience I will ever take for granted.

  9. Oh my gosh, you are gorgeous! It's amazing how quickly the whole thing happens, even though some moments felt like an eternity for me. I was just looking back over the first pictures of our youngest babe, the changes a few weeks can bring are hard to fathom.

  15. I know I denied being "beautiful" when I was pregnant and I only did it once...what a regret to not take photos each month or even ever'!!! I have 2 photos of me pregnant, one at 37 weeks and one the next week in labour...you look fabulous....and you can see where Poet gets her look from :D
    Warm regards,
    Jan

  17. I love the sense of gratitude I feel in your words -- it breaks my heart when I hear pregnant women complain. It's such a beautiful experience, even with the hard parts, and one to be thoroughly relished.
