Hot And Pregnant In At Least Two Pictures

I was a hottie pregnant lady and since I NEVER EVER EVER plan to get pregnant again, I couldn’t resist showing off my bump-ness in Shell’s Rockin’ the Bump link up.

My medical school graduation party 2006. E popped out 14 weeks later. And my glow was replaced with dark circles. Of love, you guys!
New Year's Eve 2008. N debuted 18 weeks later. I have no idea why I'm not looking at the camera. Probably because I'm crying on the inside from wearing three-inch heels.

Even for all that boobalcious bootiness, I’m happy to have my body back.

Because I also looked like this in 2006:

In this picture, I'm just hot. Like middle of August my ankles are the same size as my thighs hot.

And like this in 2009:

I'm church greeter. I'm pretty sure ten people turned around and went home when I grunted at them.

Feel free to see other, happier pregnant ladies here.

  1. 1. Your New Year’s Eve photo is AMAZING! You look better pregnant than I EVER have (including pre-preggo).
    2. I want to shoot people that make the comment of “Time to have another one!” when I mention Lulu is turning one next month.
    3. I am proud of you for carrying and birthing two amazing little people. You did well friend.

  2. You look fabulous! With so many different types of hair!

    I have to say, though, that the Church Greeter Photo is my favorite. Nothing says, “Welcome to our house of worship…” like a dubious lift of the eyebrow and being hunched over the programs.

  3. I love that New Year’s pic. You were one of those uber “I’m a stick with just a bump” pregnant ladies then. Oh, how I hated you 🙂

    I felt better seeing the other pictures 😉

  4. I have to admit, I’ve destroyed all pictures of me pregnant. I did not glow. I was not radiant. I did not look cute. No one need be forced to relive those days!

  5. Awww…now I kind of wish you’d have another.

    Do it for me.

    Do it.


    This is not an effective means of peer pressure, I get the feeling.

  6. You’re seriously cute! It seems that for every good preggy photo there are 10 “real” ones of us with scowls on our faces and yanking up our droopy maternity pants. Or was that just me?

  7. I love the picture from med school graduation. I’m so happy that life has worked out for you and put you in the position to educate and entertain so many people with you blog and mommy groups. Love you girl!!!
