2 Bumps, 1 Baby

So Casey took a picture of me in March to mark my sixth months of pregnancy. Upon taking the picture, Casey said, "Ooooh, are you having twins?" Referring to my butt being the same size as my belly.

If only that could be my excuse for the explosion happening behind me. 

Now that I am 7 months pregnant, I started working out again. (As an ahtlete, I know better. But I'm lazy. It's always been a major flaw of mine. Now that my regular jeans are getting too tight to wear, even with the elastic band trick, I've decided enough is enough. I haven't bought a pair of maternity pants yet, and I'm not going to now!) I'm trying to maintain my current 25 lb weight gain. With 2.5 months still to go. Maybe I should just shoot for 30 lbs and call it good?

Good news- I'm feeling really good. And food has never tasted better. Maybe that is where that other bump comes into play. I can't get enough of everything I eat. Let's hope I don't feel this way for the remaining 12 weeks or my butt bump might outgrow my belly bump. Sad thought.

Our baby boy is doing really well. Healthy heart beat. Health baby who kicks A LOT. Casey and I can't wait for him to make his debut. I hope he weighs at least 15 lbs.

OK, you are so cute I want to throw something at you. No maternity jeans at 7 months???! No, seriously, I don't think we can be friends. My MATERNITY jeans are getting too tight.

You really are adorable. Congrats.

You look so amazing! We just found out our baby is due November 17th! I'm only 7 weeks and have already gone maternity shopping, LOL--not so much because my pants don't fit, they just aren't as comfortable! If I had two bumps that looked like yours I'd call myself lucky ;-)

Sexiest preggo I have ever seen. I thought I looked good. JK

You look awesome. Good luck with only gaining five pounds in the last 12 weeks :) The good news is that it totally comes off...it may take 9 months, but it really does go away (i felt like nursing especially helped me lose the weight). It's all worth it in the end :) Good luck!

I didn't gain any almost my entire 3rd trimester and my Dr. didn't say it was harmful (although I didn't TRY not to). Shoot for 30 and call it good. You look HOT.

I love your bumps, you are sexy. I miss you. Can't wait to see you in 1.5 months. I would just shoot for 35 pounds, little Cash has to put on some weight the last couple months. Besides, it will come off in a flash. You look great!
