An apology



I am 10 weeks along today, and I was thinking about taking a “Belly picture.”

Just for fun, I went through some of my pregnancy photos that I took with Joseph. 

This is me 10 weeks pregnant a few years ago:


Seriously?  Does this count as a belly photo?  Was poor little bitty Caitlin-poo outgrowing her size 2 jeans?

I remember looking at this and thinking- “WOW!  I really look pregnant!”

Now, all I think when I look at this picture now is “DAAAAANG!  Look at those ABS!!!”

So, I would like to formally say:

I am very sorry to everyone I sent this picture to.  Everyone who I made say “Oh, wow, Caitlin!  Look at the difference in your tummy!”  When all you really wanted to do was smack me.  And feed me a hamburger.

And I don’t blame any of you for laughing and applauding when, at the end, I looked like this:




Because WOOOOOOAAHH Nelly!  That’s more like it!

Let’s just say, no “Belly pictures” will be posted of me for quite some time.

Speechless - I guess I'll get to see first hand in February. And I won't be able to be too critical as I'll be right there with you!

Yeah, I was gettin ready to smack you then I scrolled down! Hehe! You can post those "skinny" belly pics if you want! Even though secretly I am rolling my eyes when I see them! :) I think belly pics at any stage is cute! Big person or little person! It doesn't matter because it is all a miracle!

I haven't been that skinny since I was 3 years old.

I am glad that you did this b/c if you didn't then I was going to have to hate you for being so skinny and having a fabulous tummy, even while pregnant.
But now all is forgiven and I love you even more. :)

You're cute with your belly at all pregnancy stages! Keep smiling:)

Yay! I am so excited for you both, however, I would like to see some belly photos in the next few weeks. Maybe start taking them at 15 weeks. You and I both will work on getting back in our size 2 jeans once again.

Jenners said... more "size 2, perfect toned abs" photos. We'll just hate you.

Maureen said...

I'd love to see your progress at every stage because then I don't miss too much.

Rachel said...

Oh, how I know what you mean. I hate it. I hate it so much I don't ever want to get pregnant again. I wish the Stork could just bring me my baby. Come on!!!!

Diane said...

Too funny! Hope all is going well with this pregnancy. God bless your family!

Nina said...

LOL.... You are so funny! I must say it took my forever to get a belly with child one, I didn't put on anything maternity until I was 6 months pregnant. Child 2.... didn't happen.

First baby are so nice to our abs, but they ruin them for the second pregnancy. I didn't really show (nothing I couldn't hide with a lose shirt) a lot until I was over 20 weeks with my first. With my second people knew at 12 to 15 weeks.
