First Belly Picture-17w3d

Ok, before I show you what I look like I have to tell you that I have a weird body. I have a disproportionally small waist compared to my rear/thigh region. I buy pants that fit my legs so they are always loose around my middle.

When I am pregnant, my sides fill out first and then I start to poke out in the front. Guapo says I look like I have a tire around my waist. Thank you very much Guapo.

So that's what's happening right now. My sides are filling out, and because I have extra space in my jeans around the waist I can still wear them.

By the end I look totally normal and huge.




And as you can see, I've already had my pregnancy hair-chop episode. There is this Colombian lady in our ward with the cutest hair and when I mentioned how much I liked it to her, she offered to cut mine.

"Sure, why not?" I answered.

So, she showed up at my house and cut off a good portion of my hair. I like it though, thank goodness. I am finally embracing my waviness!

"...I have to tell you that I have a weird body."
Hmm, I don't see it. Next time please include a diagram and measurements. Thank you.

Just today I was thinking about all MOLFs who are pregnant (I always think of my BOFF first of course).
Anyways, waist-tire aside, how are you doing? :)

And your hair looks cool...or is that another wig?
My hair is also wavy, sometimes is good, but most of the times is bad.

Your hair almost looks the same just shorter so I'm confident that it's for real this time. Makes you look younger! You are still soooooo slim! I think that by the time I got confirmation that I was pregnant with my second child, I needed to wear "garter" pants! Here's to a few more months of eating whatever your heart desires (and keeping it in!)!

Tess said...

you look great! I have a pregnant friend like that too, and I never thought of it that way, but she barely even looks pregnant and she's 5 months.

jules said...

I see no tire. You look great and I love your hair too! Glad you are eating again and keeping it down.

Heather said...

Ummm, if I ever look that skinny I'll send the picture to modeling agencies. :) You look cute.

Janice J. said...

You look great!

Gabriela said...

NCS: thanks for asking! I am doing better now. I would say how many days it's been since I last got sick, but I'm afraid I'll jinx myself.

It's NOT a wig. I still feel bad about lying on my blog!

K-squared's mom: my hair is very layered now.

Janice, Jules,Heather, Tess: Thanks! I don't feel so cute right now. :)

You look great! NCS is right (and won't she love reading that sentence), we need diagrams to find this supposed weirdness!

Cute cut too!

I hear you on the weird body thing - my last two pregnancies, I had to start wearing maternity tops before pants. You hardly show at all. :)

And your hair looks wonderful! Pregnancy must agree with you!

Grandma Sue said...

Too cute!! Have a great day!

Rachelle said...

Such a cute lil belly! Totally not fait!

txmommy said...

well I'll joing the ranks and say that I think your hair looks very cute too. We have curly hair in our fam and it can be a big pain in the neck,
Also you look better pregnant than I do not WAH! But seriously I am glad you are feeling better.

I think my last (fifth) pregnancy was the only one I didn't do the hair chop thing on. I was never sure what the correlation between pregnancies and shorter hair was for me, maybe just a little boost when I was starting to feel less attractive.

Anyway, your hair is cute and you look great!

momofalltrades said...

You look darling, darling. :O)

amerimeximadre said...

look how cute you are!! I wouldn't have even known that you were pregnant if you hadn't told me. Nice that your pants finally fit you. If you are 17 weeks then I must look 25 weeks and I'm not pregnant!

No Cool Story said...

Yeah Gabs, you are going to have to try harder next time: that's a good pregnant picture.

I'm glad you are feeling better :D

You didn't lie on your blog (about the wig) you were pranking Guapo (who hates his name).

Shelah said...

you look adorable-- hair and belly! My hair always does funky wavy things when I'm pg too, but it doesn't look as cute as yours does.

handiemom said...

Ok how is that I am about the same as you (20 weeks now) and you look trim and fit and I look like a cow? No non-prego jeans for me. I'm in elastic waistbands for the next 4 months (sigh)

And I do like your new do! Very cute.

When is your due date by the way? Mine is Feb 17.

You look so good! I love your hair!
