It is quite amazing when you think about all of the transitions a woman’s body goes through in 40 weeks of pregnancy…not to mention that you are growing A HUMAN! I mean, I can not believe that any day now we will be welcoming a little baby boy who once lived inside of my body.
Speaking of changing bodies, I hardly recognize my body at 39 weeks pregnant. I have officially outgrown my clothes, including my maternity ones. My shirts are too short and expose my stomach, while all of my pants feel constricting and uncomfortable. I’m down to one pair of maternity leggings. What this means is that I refuse to leave the house if they are dirty because I have nothing to wear. Literally.
To see how much my body has changed, I decided to post some photos to compare. The first picture shows my body a few days before I found out I was pregnant while the second photo shows my 32 week pregnant body right before I hit the pool for prenatal water aerobics.
It’s hard to imagine what it feels like to have a waistline after nearly ten months without one but so worth it when you get a little buddy to call your own at the end of it.
