Me so pregnant!

I am now 23 weeks and counting. I don’t look like I should be counting but I feel like I am 9 months.

The Pros and Cons of being pregnant.
Starting with the Pros
I get to feel this life inside me…the kicks and hiccups all the good stuff.
I’m due first of August and that may sound bad but not so much to me. I can wear flip flops ALL the time because I can’t so much bend over to tie my shoes.
The baby will get to be born in WARM weather
I can go out with a newborn in the summer
I will have a birthday to celebrate every month of the summer
Good time for PHOTOS
The kids will be around to help and then off to school
I am 5 months and people tell me all the time that I don’t even LOOK pregnant but I can still sleep on my stomach
I don’t get morning sickness

The Cons
I feel like I am 9 months pregnant. I already waddle. It’s true. Maybe I just do it in my home and don’t let anyone else see it but I do.
I am 5 months and people tell me all the time that I don’t even LOOK pregnant but I FEEL pregnant and I look fat.
I think because I don’t show the baby is so inside me that he separates my hips to make for some major back and hip pain. Yesterday I only cleaned the toy room, on my knees so that I wouldn’t have to bend over, and helped the kids with their rooms. I was out for the day and today too. Oh yeah, I did some extended family photos too.
I feel too old for this.
I can’t play soccer anymore…boo hoo! No, really this was big for me. But I get to watch everyone else in my family play!
I feel very ugly. It’s the truth. I don’t want pitty. It’s just how I feel. So, I have made my husband take my picture so that I can see the pretty. It kind of works.

Here I am 23 weeks and counting.
My sister-in-law took this for me today. The background bugs me but I didn’t want to go outside any further because it’s just too cold.
