Wanna see me BIG AS A DoubleWide?

Branmuffin is outta town on biz.
So, when he is outta town, I make out with my DVR shows.
Now don't get any ideas on wreaking havoc on this house with him gone,
cuz, by the time you read this he will be home.
And to be honest, my kiddos have wreaked enough havoc on me,
so you don't wanna mess! 

I caught up on Housewives of NJ...luv it, don't hate on them till you watch it.
I love and adore Italians, and to watch them interact... to me, is fascinating!
Now, Teresa just had her 4th girl...and this girl was wearing heels to the
delivery room, decking herself out in jewelry whenever she had the chance,
and her hair was always "perfection"...which got me thinking back
to when I was pregnant.

All I cared about was comfort...
I would get dolled up if I had to, but I didn't even wanna wear a bra at home.
B used to say, git yer bra on, were goin out!

I was not a fan of pregnancy.
I loathed it...with a capital "L".
That's why when I popped Turner out, I turned to Brandon and said
"Put a fork in me, I'm done!"

So, I went to my hard drive and pulled out some pics of me....
wanna see me...

Every girl likes to see another girl get huge right?

One month before I was due with Mom can't get her arms around me..
Me at the State Fair trying to go into labor on Labor Day.

Me at the doctors, overdue and after I had asked the doctor to
strip my membranes for the THIRD time!  Who does that?


Morning being induced with Tatum...
Morning being induced with Turner...

Notice I am wearing the same black pants before each birth....
I lived in those suckers...they were worth millions to me!
{Gained 40 pounds with each pregnancy!}

So, there you have it!
Some women embrace pregnancy wearing 6 inch heels and
all, but not me...I had a paper chain in my kitchen and I tore a link off
every day I got closer to my due date.

I know I am gonna get comments on how much you loved being pregnant,
go ahead, Brandon's fixed so I don't have a care in the world!

You are always on my best dressed list! I LOVE the striped shirt!

Mama Orser said...

Whaaaaaaatever! Please! You were adorable. That's right a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! I read "doublewide" and had visions of "I was pregnant and didn't even know it!"

I dig your straight, short hair....that is cuuute!

Kim said...

omg, you are tuuuu funny - and beautiful preg or not preg!


I will not tell you that you are BIG AS A HOUSE. You were all belly and a nice tanned belly that makes you look even better. Not many prego girls out there flaunt their stuff in a bikini. You rocked it with style when you were pregnant. I know how much you did not like growing those babies in your belly. BUT..... I would like to thank-you very much for sharing your belly to grow my gbabies to adore and love.... They are two blessings for the Cartmill and Timmer's Families...

Beth said...

I am a BIG fan of your hair like that too! I was thinking the same thing while I was reading this post :)

You looked fab as always! And I won't lie to you and tell you I enjoy pregnancy- I'm dying to be done and meet this little one. Even went for a bike ride yesterday hoping to get labor started! :)

Suzanne, I love the short, straight hair! WOW, I am so surprised as I love your long, curly hair. Let's face it, short or long, pregnant or not, you look great!!!!
