Does This Pregnancy Make My Bum Look Big?

Mmmkay, I'm trying to embrace the pregnancy "chub", but good grief. If I didn't know better {or have an early ultrasound}, I'd suspect twins! Then again, the weight is rather . . . how shall I say . . . dispersed. Anyway. Once I can get past the severe exhaustion and unexpected vomiting episodes {particularly those that take place in grocery store parking lots, ahem.} I am SO gonna get my boot movin' a little more. And maybe try to cut back on the potato chips and french fries. So bad, I know. But in my defense, I *have* been eating a lot of salad, fruits, and veggies too.

Alrighty, enough of that.


Time for a little question and answer period {since I've been horrible about returning email these days}.

Q: How am I feeling? {Thank you so much for asking!}

A: Better. I'm tired all the time, but the nausea is getting better. It sneaks up on me though!

Q: What kind of camera/lens did you get for Christmas?

A: Well, I've had my new {lovely} camera since last August. I had been wanting an upgrade for a long while, and purchased the Canon EOS 7D right before Sierra's birthday. At the time, I wasn't able to buy a lens for it, so I had been using my 50mm 1.8. Fine for outdoors, but a little tight indoors. So . . . I hemmed and hawed over which lens I wanted, and I'd heard so many wonderful things about the Tamron 28-75 ~ that's what went on my list. What a fun surprise to actually unwrap it on Christmas morning! And in case you're wondering, I do so love it :)

Q: What kind of camera bag did you get?

A: I got this one, below, and I ♥ it! It has enough room for my camera, a couple of lenses, batteries, cards, and probably even my wallet and cell phone. I'm not sure it's appropriate to love a bag this much.

Small, Jill.e. Camera bag in Bone.

Q: Are we staining/painting our cabinets, or will they remain natural?

A: It's hard to tell from the photo, but the cabinets actually are stained. Or lacquered, or whatever you call it ;) But no, we aren't doing anything further. I love them just the way they are, and in my opinion it would be a crime to cover them up with paint. But that's just my personal opinion.


I think that's it. Unless y'all have any other questions ;)

Did you gain weight with the other pregnancies? :) I'm sure you still look amazing! And it all comes off with breastfeeding right? :)

Jenny said...

I had to laugh about the grocery store parking lot. I bet that was quite a sight!

Your camera bag is so cute and woohoo about the lens! I can't wait to see more pics from it!

I'm sure you still look great, so don't let the weight bother you.

Connie said...

One more question....when are you due?

Shannon said...

I feel the same way with this {surprise} pregnancy, but then again it may be my last so I'm like ah, whateva! LOL I bet you look great!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that bag!!!!!!! OMG that's it Ive got to have one!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Those unexpected vomitting episodes are no fun! I hope that stage is over soon:) I LOVE your bag! I have been wanting a cute camera bag forever! Maybe I can manage one for my birthday this year:)

Valerie said...

Um....wait a minute! I've missed something! Something very important!!!!

You're expecting? CONGRATULATIONS!!! Where have I been.

Oh, that's right, I had a baby a few months back.

What wonderful news. Sorry to hear you've been sick. Don't worry about the baby spread. You're allowed. It's number 4 for heaven's sake!

I'm getting back in the blogging game so I'm so keeping better tabs on you! :)

Oh the pregnancy weight. Gotta love it. LOL Still trying to get off my 5 year olds pregnancy weight :)
I had to go back and look at your previous posts. Looks like you had a great Christmas and so much fun presents. Love the green camera and congrats on the lens. Also love your cabinets. Just beautiful.

Oh the pregnancy weight, and the morning (all day) sickness, not the best part of pregnancy, but it shall pass! I am sure you still look wonderful! When will your little one be arriving?

I wish breastfeeding helped me lose the weight, but it seems to do the opposite. I have 40 pounds down, and 20 to go.

Love your camera bag, it is soooo cute!

Kelli said...

I'm sure you look wonderful and that little bundle will be worth the extra little pounds...then you'll shred it all chasing after the new little one :) Thanks for the answers, I was wondering about those. Love the camera exciting. Your title made me laugh :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Your butt looks great. :)
Hope you feel better soon....going to check out your new lens!

shortmama said...

Im sure you look great mama!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Ah, the preggo spread, one of my favorite aspects of pregnancy! We know it goes after, but is still fun. Just remind yourself of me...I carried my boys entirely in my bum. It was bad.

Jen said...

Ok - I haven't been around to blogs in WAY TOO LONG - you're the THIRD person I've visited that is PREGNANT! Oh my! Congratulations!!!!!!! I hope baby #4 is easy on you :) My 4th pregnancy wasn't the easiest, but the baby sure was the most laid back of all! And baby weight? Hmmm, well - you've read my blog. You know where I am on that. But I'm still trying! lol!

ENJOY every minute of it! And your kitchen looks AMAZING. Happy New Year!

Rachel Sue said...

This is kind of depressing, but I gained at least 10 extra pounds with each pregnancy. It's a good thing that baby will be worth it! :)

Xazmin said... sorry about the nausea. I am so fortunate to never get sick. But oh the EXHAUSTION! I feel for you! Hopefully both will soon pass!

Mandy said...

ah, that 4th baby...ya, the weight comes on faster and you feel all those aches and pains faster!!! but they're always worth it, huh?

jealous of the camera:)

Seizing My Day said...

Yep.. LOVE the camera bag/purse!!! =)
I did that for 18 months... (2 babies) ick ick ick.. I hope your baby induced sickness goes away soon!!

jennykate77 said...

How did I miss that you're PREGNANT???? Congratulations!!! Oh my goodness, that's exciting news! I know that you look gorgeous. I doubt that you can even tell you've gained a pound or two.

Ok, I also love the camera bag...LOVE it! I got a new camera backpack for Christmas. I also LOVE the new lens! One of these days!! I got a new 50mm and a fisheye.

Girl I guess I totally missed the baby announcement post. Congrats. I will tell you as hard as it is working out so help with the weight gain. With me it also helped with the mood swings.
Hope all is well and congrats again.

I love the camera bag!! I have the bag that came with my Canon T1i package that I got at Costco. I don't like it much. But then again I'm usually out hiking with my camera and a camera bag is pretty cumbersome.
