Why I’m Not Pregnant

Reason Number 3,452
on why I am not currently pregnant with Baby #2:
Because I like to be able to tie my own shoes.
and breath.
and sleep.
and people who are only 4’11 should not have to
birth 8 pound babies.
UPDATE: that scar on my tummy is from a scary mole I had to get surgically removed while 5 months pregnant–lovely.

    Ok, good reasons! But you must know that you are probably the MOST adorable pregnant woman I have ever seen! You are gorgeous and your perfect little prego body is just too beautiful!
    I am not having any more babies because when I get prego I get a terrible disease called intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. Its miserable, and the biggest symptom is terrible non stop itching everywhere! πŸ™
    Ive had 3 babies, endured that terrible disease everytime. It was totally worth it! LOL But I DO NOT want to go through it again! πŸ™‚ Im done! haha

    Just for clarification, I gained a whopping 42 pounds–HOLY COW! and it went EVERYWHERE–my legs just don't look as big as they really were because my tummy was so HUGE! It's amazing I could stand up.

    I'm guessing you've heard it a million times but you are ALLLLL BELLY!

    And I'm jealous! I'm 30+weeks now and you couldn't even tell…(I mean I can) but most people don't realize it or are completely shocked when I say I'll be having a baby in 10 weeks. I want a big huge round belly….it's just taking SOOOO LONG! So I think you're lucky & look wonderful with that huge belly.

    Now my question is how did your tummy stay so nice and tan? GORGEOUS!

    I was big like that pregnant too! I am 5'6 and was constantly being asked if I was due any day now at 6 months. Then if I was having twins. Baby 1 was 8lb 13oz and baby 2 was 8lb 10.5oz. The worst, no maternity shirt was long enough the last two months of my pregnancy. I had to go out and buy the super long tanks from Old Navy, they were the only thing that covered my massive belly.

    I am not disgusted by your belly but it makes me cringe because it was so huge and it looks painful.

    This is another reason to not have a baby and just keep my furry ones!

    Yikes! I don't think I have ever seen a belly that big, you were definitely all baby!!!

    You are one of those lucky gals who is all baby and doesn't gain an ounce anywhere else. You look super cute, but more importantly super uncomfortable at that stage of pregnancy. The uncomfortability is worth it though, isn't it?
