Encouraging Myself

Something that I have struggled with during this pregnancy is the thought of looking pregnant earlier than I "should." It should not really matter, but it is something that I was a little self conscious of in the beginning...not that I could really do anything about it!

I have to say that my husband has been my #1 fan (and always is) during this time. He loves my little prego belly and loves the baby growing inside (I still find it hard to believe that I am prego!). I am fine with it for the most part - it is what it is - but I am determined that I will lose ALL of the baby weight - plus the 10 pounds from the 1st pregnancy that I did not loose - after the baby is born! It might take a little while, but I am determined to really do something about it - meaning exercise and eating healthy! :)

So, that is why I have begun to exercise again - I need to get into shape now and into a routine, so that I can hopefully stay in the routine after the baby is born. I have no idea what it is like to have two children, but I am hoping that I will still be able to find the time to do things like take a walk!

I hae to tell you again, sometimes I forget that you're preggers. Really, I do. You don't look pregnant at all to me. Maybe I should post some pictures of me before Bubba was born. Then, my dear, you would see a very, very pregnant lady. :)

You are beautiful.

I have been struggling lately with my outward appearance and God keeps reminding me He's more interested with the inside (hence my latest post!). I am trying to be more healthy and exercise now that we are moving out of the chaotic stage of life for now!

CM is right...you are beautiful and glowing with that precious gift of life inside of you!

I would have to agree, I forget sometimes that you are even prego b/c you look so stinkin good!

Thank you ladies for encouraging me - this is a fun, but sometimes vulnerable time in life. I appreciate all of you
