SELF CONSCIOUS & CO HOST FAVOURITE THINGS LINK PARTY

This week I am so excited about co-hosting the favourite things link party with Jenny at Sippy Cup Chronicles! This is a chance to show off your favourite post or your favourite thing! So come along and join us and link up!

I love my baby bump, it has to be one of my favourite things at the moment! A constant reminder of the new life within me that I am soon to meet. A precious, miraculous moment in a woman's life! The way a woman's body changes and adapts to create and nourish and grow is amazing!

With my first bubba I was uncomfortable and not enjoying all the wonderful things that pregnancy is! But after struggling to conceive baby number 2 I have really come to embrace this pregnancy and everything that comes with it.

But in saying that there is still the self conscious factor. No matter how much I love my bump, I am well aware that I have put on some kilos, I am not the tight and perky 23 year old that I was when I was pregnant with my son, things have expanded, sagged, aged. It's hard not to be self critical about it, pointing out my flaws. I suppose that is human nature now, with mirrors everywhere and celebrities bodies which seem to rebound days after giving birth.

But that is all natural, it happens to everyone. No body is the same after bearing a child.

So here it is - My 30 week Bump! AND I LOVE IT!

  3. Lovely bump! I have always loved being pregnant - probably why I did it 5 times. Somehow I'm one of the fortunate ones who blooms and feels comfortable with all the changes - except the belly button popping out - that always freaked me out!
