A Belly for the Day - 28 weeks

I felt compelled to share a picture of my bare belly because a beautiful friend of mine who lives in Singapore did the same and her's looked so nice. Mine, on the other hand, didn't look as fresh and fun as hers. She's pregnant with twins, has only 7 weeks left and is about the same size as me. Nice. Anyway, I took like 10 pictures in this mirror to get JUST the right shot and then realized, on the 9th picture that JUST the right shot meant cutting off my chubby face and neck. It's not as easy as it looks, taking a picture of yourself in the mirror because you keep wanting to smile at the mirror instead of the reflection of the lens IN the mirror. Because of this, I was making all sorts of weird faces either looking at myself, or at the screen on the back of the camera to make sure I was in the picture. Don't pay attention to the whiteness of my flesh, it's hideous, I know. It's the same color as my pale yellow shirt. I'm gonna go get spray tanned soon, for the summer. I don't wanna look like death when I go to the hospital to have this sucker. OH and Tara, thanks for the posing suggestions, I think my butt and legs look about 10 times smaller than they REALLY are right now thanks to you and my sexy pose.

Don't you just love that there are 12 more weeks of big time growth! You look great, though, you would have puked if you saw my belly. In fact, you might still puke if you saw my belly now.

I like the idea of you standing in front of a mirror trying to get the least embarrassing shot. It's awesome.

Yes, you had better keep the pics coming. You look perfect Jess! Seriously great curves! You do NOT look big AT ALL!!! Now will you belive me when I tell you it was the angles on my pictures? You look WAY smaller than I did. You got a really good shot, that is hard to do. Lookin sexy mama!!!

btw- I am not wise, just ask Lindsay, I just get lucky once in a while when my verbal vomit makes sense to someone.

Ahhh, you said the "b" word!!
You look awesome. I wish I could be there to see you growing. I am sure your face is not chubby, I'm sure it's as beautiful as always. Keep us posted on the tummy growth - you could do one every two weeks till the baby gets here!
