One thing that I have found that pregnancy does for me is that it changes the way I view my body.
I am not typically very kind to myself. I make silent comments about my weight, the shape of my body, the acne on my face, and on and on, every day and often all day long. But when I am pregnant, I feel pretty. I love my breasts. I love my round belly. I love the way my clothes fit. I do not love the added acne that I have to face, but I am able to overlook it. Because I feel glorious. I feel so comfortable in my own skin.
And never have I felt more beautiful than when we had my maternity photos taken last month, at 34 weeks pregnant. I had my hair done for the occasion and my face was clear (mostly) and we chose the perfect photographer who was able to capture this special moment in our history with the most amazing photographs. I wish I could show them all to you because I loved every one. I mean, people, I loved them more than our wedding photos. They’re that good.
But alas, I am still kinda sorta trying to keep this blog somewhat anonymous. And so the photos that follow will have to suffice. But trust me when I say that there are so many more, and they’re even better than these.
