I cannot thank you enough for reaching out and sending Sox, Baby G and I so much love after yesterdays post! You’ve made Sox and I feel very lucky to have such wonderful support and it really means a lot.
Besides my Fibroid condition, I have really enjoyed being pregnant and it’s still one of the most amazing (and difficult) experiences – something I feel very grateful and privileged for.
I’m enjoying finding ways to dress the bump. It also really helps finding maternity clothes that are made with love and an understanding of what’s needed. I definitely feel that maternity fashion is changing for the better and I’m grateful for the Mompreneurs, like Andrea, who are creating these beautiful pieces. When you don’t feel like your body is yours anymore, being able to dress and feel good about yourself is a huge elevation.
MamaMeah has been an amazing website to shop on and this Khaki Maternity Drape dress gets many a compliment, which is always welcomed when you’re feeling heavy.
I also have to share how funny the shoot was with Tegan a 2 weeks ago – 28 weeks pregnant . When we looked at her camera screen to see how the shots were coming out, I kept looking down to figure out why my stomach looked lumpy and all right sided. Was the dress not draping properly? Nope, it was sitting perfectly.
It turns out Baby G had pushed himself out, distorting my belly from being round to actually seeing where part of him was lying, although I have no idea if that’s a bum, a back, a head or legs and arms. I chose these photos for the edit, instead of the typical rounded bump pics, because I want to be reminded of that and I think it’s so cute how he stuck himself out, as if to say: “I’m here to ‘model’ too, Mom!”
So the pics might not be “fashion perfect”, but they’re real! Thank you Tegan for capturing this!
