self timer..

since becoming pregnant... i'm always thinking, "o take a picture" i dont know why but almost every occasion or just a regular day i jump up and think o my gosh i have to take a picture... so i do enjoy the self timer on my camera! when dennis is at work, i have no other way but the timer.. and boy do i have fun. so many people look at pregnancy as a rough road or a scary thing. geeze i LOVE it. i love it.... i don't dislike anything!

the weight... i will lose it! i'm not going to focus on my pudge when i should be cherishing my baby boy once he's here. but i WILL say.... i will get my body back and i will have some tone in my arms LOL.. they have been flabby since high school! i think having a child and becoming a mama.... that's all the motivation i need to get in shape again. I want to live as long as i can and be happy with my body at the same time! can't wait!

heartburn.... so i had it before baby came along BUT now i get it eating cookies, spicy things, just about anything & even though i sucks when i wake up feeling like a dragon... i just rub my belly and think it's all worth it and more!

clothing... so i did stress in the beginning like o my gosh am i going to have to wear those frilly flowery tops?!?!?!?! i quickly found out NO. i'm pretty luck that only my belly and boobs and hips have changed! i wear many of my tanks i wore before baby, even though they are stretching with me... i just make sure they are long enough and i'm fine. jeans... well those got retired a month ago. i did have to buy some maternity pants. and i LOVE them. wearing pants and having to put a ponytail through the loop and the button is for THE BIRDS. seriously. maternity pants you can actually pull up and are so comfy.... geeze.

skin... my skin as changed as well. i had many breakouts in my early months...and of course i quit tanning. so i had to get used to my pale skin. I'm still trying to embrace it because it is healthier. i still love the sun and love when i get some sun!

energy... to be honest i didn't feel pregnant until i hit 6months. i did take a nap every once in awhile, but i was able to fully function in the mornings and stay up late. HOWEVER, this past month my energy level has lowered. I have to have a nap sometime during the day or i go to bed at like 8 and that doesn't work because then dennis and i would never be able to spend time together. i can't wait for the days to come when i don't have time for a nap. :)
for the closing i'll add some funny pics i've taken with the self timer! hope you have a good laugh :)
what is this we've got here!

not for long!
