My sister took some pictures for me yesterday…I’m not super excited about them. I appreciate her doing it and she always does an awesome job.
Honestly…I think it’s me, not her.
Now that I am looking at them, I’m having some huge body image issues. Pre-pregnancy I had worked hard to accept who I am. I’m not super skinny, I’m “cute” (or what my hubby says is the “girl-next-door” look), I’m pear shaped and I know all my good angles for photographs. Lol I’ve accepted that!
But now that I am pregnant, I’m in the inbetween stage. I feel chubby and awkward. Not my most confident. Plus I think I need some sun…I’ve been out of it for over a month! Lol pale AND awkward?!
I know…this is me complaining about a pregnancy related and inevitable symptom: weight gain. And I totally shouldn’t complain…I just don’t feel that pretty, pregnancy glow that makes up for the extra pounds.
What I do know is that I need to be more active. More walks and physical activity. Secondly, making better food choices. I don’t make super bad ones, but they could be better.
And finally, get some sun and some pictures I am proud of that make me feel pretty. 😛
Which is why I booked a friend from school who runs her own (very successful) photography business on the side. I need to know her secret for success!
Ok, enough complaining! I am happy to put on the weight for baby 🙂
I went out shopping with my mom today. I got Elf on a Shelf, had tacos at Mi Cocina, and registered for a few nursery things. That’s when it hit me…I will be decorating a nursery soon! That’s exciting!!! And surreal! Our gender reveal party is a month away and we are anxious to know if it will be pink or blue.
Overall, I would say it was a very good day. Its also cold! So it feels like winter finally.
