Watch my belly grow...

On September 24, 2008, I found out I was pregnant. I was four weeks and five days along at that point, and even though I didn't see any drastic changes in my belly for awhile, I started taking pictures that very day. I'll spare you all of the pictures, though.

4 weeks, 5 days



9 weeks



14 weeks, 5 days



18 weeks



21 weeks, 1 day



25 weeks



27 weeks, 6 days



30 weeks, 5 days



34 weeks



36 weeks



39 weeks



41 weeks and 30 pounds later (and hopefully my last belly pic for this pregnancy)



It surprises me to say this, but I'm going to miss my baby belly.

And here's a little bonus - a video about second pregnancies from Momversation. Even though this is my first pregnancy, I could relate to a lot of this video, particularly people's questions about "You're aware that has caffeine in it, right?".

Just thought I'd share, as it made me smile.



Thanks to everyone for your supportive comments throughout my pregnancy, especially over the last week. I'm excited to (hopefully) meet Charlie tomorrow, although I also realize that I could have a long labor and not meet him until the 9th. I hope to be back later on tonight with a birthday recap - thanks for all the birthday wishes as well.

Your maternity pics are GREAT,but I must confess that I wish you had shown at least one bare belly pic because they're ALWAYS BETTER and outie bellybuttons on pregnant bellies are AWESOME!!!!!
