Reader Submitted: Show Us Your Last Pregnancy Photo

Me at the hospital for induction at 38 weeks

I have said before that I love the feeling of being pregnant. I love the round belly, the baby kicks and generally I feel awesome. With my baby fever being in full force and with Babe E’s 3rd birthday rounding near I was looking at pictures from when I was pregnant with her.

I miss it! I felt huge and I looked huge and it’s so weird to look back at these photos and see how much growth my body did. Weird but so amazing!

There has been some chatter recently that questioned what a woman who is about to have a baby looks like. Just as there is no one way a woman should look when she’s in labor – there is no universal look of what an “about to have a baby soon” woman looks like.

Every woman – even every pregnancy – carries different. It’s not always an indication of how far along we are or how big our baby is when born. It’s all unique, individual but beautiful.
