Evolution of a Pregnant Belly

Feeling a little nostalgic about pregnancy lately. I felt so different while growing my baby, the hormones and days were tilted just so. I felt quiet and protective. Insular. And forever changed. I saw a little newborn the other day and felt I already needed another one. Luckily, the moment passed quickly :-). We will wait. We will wait for the moment. For the right one. We will know, just know--when to find when to birth when to meet--our next little one...Until then, here's the evolution of a pregnant belly...in memoriam.

Stats: 
Gained 40 lbs during pregnancy
four months postpartum--5 lbs from pre-pregnancy weight









actually took this the day I went into labor :-)

this is me at the three months postpartum mark. Belly soft, but back to thin. A little bulge left where my little angel grew...

you look fantastic! i was always scared about what my PP body would look like, and i definitely think BFing helped, but i want to do more toning and tightening before i get PG again ;-)

YOu look AMAZING throughout. So smart to use signs. I need to start doing that.

Your growth and after is pretty similar to what mine was. I gained only weight in the belly and it was all gone pretty quickly after...although you documented it all way better :) Congrats!
