Bump Watch: 33 & 34 Weeks

As of today I'm 36 weeks and 2 days pregnant, but I'm JUST NOW posting my 33 & 34-week belly pics.  So let's get right to it, shall we?  

WEEK 33:

I call this series the "Anatomy of a Canine-Imposed Disaster Waiting to Happen":
Tired girl on her way to a baseball game.  Nothing to see here, folks!

What's that, cute puppies?  You want to come in?  WHY THE HECK NOT.

I wuf your furry arses, yes I do!
GAH!  Apparently you love me, too!


 Annnnnd scene.

WEEK 34:
Don't let the smile fool you.  I was soooo crabby during this photo shoot.  I have been a really happy pregnant lady overall, but I was so swollen and tired here.  I was literally WHINING.
Zzzzzzz..... (just kidding - I wasn't sleeping. Yet.)

After we got done and I saw that the sun had come through the blinds and was shining behind me, I made this comment to Mark: "Huh...pretty ironic that it looks like I have sun shining out of MY ASS, considering how foul my mood is!"  Yep.  I'm so eloquent. 

Side note about the white shirt I'm wearing here.  When I bought it around 25 weeks or so, I had to put the Really Pregnant fake belly to try it on.  Mark and I were CRACKING UP at how large I looked (we even took a funny iPhone picture of me with a horrified look on my face).  I felt certain I'd never fill that shirt out as it was intended but the joke was on me!  AND I LOVE IT.


  1. Ahaha! Love the puppy mauling pictures :-). I just want to come and curl up with those adorable furkiddos.

    P.S. I think you have more than earned the right to be crabby after 36 weeks of stretching and growing and nourishing and not sleeping and many many other selfless processes. I don't think I've mentioned it lately, but you are my hero <3

  2. Lookin' good sister!!!

    I love that Mark continued to photograph you while you were being knocked over by the pups! :) Forget helping the pregnant lady! Photo-ops are much more important! And, I mean this! Hope you and Chickpea weren't injured during the making of this, but in the end it was worth it for us, for a good laugh!

    Love ya!!!

  3. Val: Thank you - that is extremely sweet of you and totally made my day!! xoxo

    Alicia: I may or may not have embellished a little. Let's just say Chickpea and I were completely fine, but we WERE glad the wall was behind us! :o)

  4. I wish I would have done this week by week photography thing when I was pregnant with The Bug. I have a "Oh, look, I think I have a bump!" picture and the final one of "Oh my god, there isn't anymore my body could stretch ... oh wait! @)#($*#()*!" - ha!! Love the doggy photos. Love yours more. xo

  5. That's quite the belly you're working on there... and it's fabulous!!! I can't believe you have only 3-8 weeks to go ....

  6. No wait a second... these are old pics! I just noticed you said you are past 36 weeks.... WOW!!! (i apologize for my dismal skills of observation.... and skimming the text to get to the pics!).

    You could be less than a week away now! You could be having this Chickpea as I type!!!! (or you could still have 4 or so weeks to go...). This is so exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Please leave a comment! It will be fun for Tate to look back on some day... :o)
