You might not want to read this

In my normal day, I read the news from the city I grew up in. Usually there are stories that make me sad, stories that make me laugh, and stories that I have no real opinion on.

Yesterday, there was a story (actually essay about a controversy) that made me mad.

Pregnant bellies are gross.

Really? They're gross?

I've had four babies. I never liked my pregnant belly and I certainly do not like my non pregnant belly, but I would never ever say that a pregnant belly is gross. It's such a beautiful thing. So in protest of all those annoying Houstonians who find pregnant bellies gross, here are my pregnant bellies (well, two of them anyway).

38 Weeks with Seth

32 Weeks with Toby

These were my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies (I apparently do not have any nekkid belly pictures of 1 and 4...but that doesn't surprise me, I was actually much more surprised to find the 2nd and 3rd. Again, I don't like my belly).

And here's another one of something that pregnant women probably shouldn't do:

Me climbing down the mountain in Ghana. 23 weeks with #4. I also climbed to the top, but don't have any good photos of that.

How about you? If you've been pregnant, do you have nekkid pictures of your belly? Do you think nekkid pregnant bellies are gross?


  1. No nekkid pregnant belly fact I have very few pictures of me pregnant!

  2. No pics of my belly, but good God. Do these people complain just to hear themselves?

    Complain about something that matters. ARGHHHHH!!!

  3. I loved my nekkid prego belly. I had professional photos done with #2.In fact, I've never loved my belly more than when I was very prego and you couldn't see any belly fat- just baby.

  4. No pics of pregnant belly....I can't believe that someone would actually say that!!! How stupid!


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
