six word sunday: Capturing the belly before it's gone.

six word sunday challenge

Yesterday morning a friend took a combo maternity/family photo shoot of us.  I was quite pleased at finding the link to the photos already in my inbox this morning!  It's kinda nice to have some pictures of me for a change, and I'm glad we were able to capture a snapshot of our little family as it is today.

I'm 35 weeks along now, and I keep going back and forth between feeling like time is speeding up all of a sudden and going by way too fast, and on the other hand starting to get anxious for this pregnancy to end.  When I was pregnant with Donovan I didn't feel that "please get this baby out of me!" urgency-- I was quite happy keeping him in my belly, where all his needs were met.  This time I'm finding pregnancy to be much more of a pain, both literally and figuratively.  But, I also know I'll miss this one day.


  1. Hi Marcy, I've been following your blog for a long time now, but have been so busy with school and have apparently gotten way behind on your posts. Congratulations on the new life growing inside of you. :) Love the photo! If you have a chance, please stop by my new photography blog and say hello sometime...

    Hope you have a restful Sun evening and a wonderful week!

    Blessings, Erin

  2. That is such an awesome shot! I feel a world behind at 23 wks, but on the other hand have way too much to accomplish before baby comes too!

    It seems your feelings might be connected to your experience and progression as you age, which is a good thing!

  3. Precious! Those pictures came out great, and you look beautiful! It just occurred to me yesterday (at 17 weeks) that I'd better start taking photos of my little baby belly because I didn't take almost any with Abbey and regretted it.

    Funny, I felt urgency about "getting the baby out!" with my first, but with this pregnancy, I feel a lot more "chill" . . . probably will change as I get into the 3rd trimester though :)
