the day my love handles turned into a baby bump!



 20 weeks!! this is the day my love handles finally turned into an official belly! what a relief! any of you who have been pregnant know what i am saying! i am finally past that awkward stage of looking pudgy and passer-byers being unsure if i just ate a little too much or if i am indeed pregnant. not that i care what people think (but, ya know, i kinda do - i am only human). i am a little curvier this time around (no really don't be fooled by some of my pics) and i have decided to enjoy it. being pregnant is truly one of the most wonderful and beautiful things so i refuse to complain about my body, because it is growing something wonderful! i actually have this great "kardashian" style booty and though it is the subject of lots of jokes around me, i think andy kind of likes it. haha. or maybe i am forcing myself to think he does. either way who cares, it isn't going anywhere soon. showing more is also making my pants hard to get up around my waist,  nothing is fitting but i am forcing clothes to work cause i am too cheap to buy maternity clothes. i would rather buy special things for the babe and our budget is tight (long story short 2 bedroom townhome that's been for sale for 6 months with no luck with a 5th family member on the way YIKES! pray for us!) So i am starting to get thrifty and it feels kind of like finding a pirate treasure... you scour and scrounge until you come across a special little something (or in this case a super cheap clothing article) that was barely worth all the work. yep, that is how i describe thrifty! anyways i am enjoying being able to eat without gagging and i love that my boys rub my belly. happy 20 weeks and halfway to me!

Love this post! I am all but 40 weeks right now. Looking at these pix reminds when I first started to show and I was thinking how big I was getting... what a difference 10 months is to 5 ;-) This is my first pregnancy though so I didn't know what to expect. About the booty, I'm sure your hubs is lovin' it! I had no idea the difference between how a man sees a booty and a woman til my hubs started making some comments about mine! LOL
