Prego pics.....

OK so everyone has been asking me what I looked like when I was at my biggest and I told them I didn't take any pictures of it because I really didn't want to but I just found these two. And this isn't my biggest because this is when I was only eight months pregnant and I gained more weight than I ever did in the last month, so I definitely got bigger than this. Awesome huh? These pics don't do justice of how big I was. My nose in this first picture is huge. The reason I am not smiling is because it would have gotten wider with the smile plus my eyes would have been hidden by my cheeks, hence no smiling. ;0 And let's face it I really wasn't happy with someone taking my picture either. The second is my proof at 8 months pregnant. I literally had to hold my stomach like that a lot because it felt like it was going to fall off. Needless to say it was very uncomfortable. On January 23 I was put on bed rest for the next month because I was diagnosed with preeclampsia in November and it progressively had gotten worse. Plus my blood levels were dangerously off the charts. I wasn't on a very strict bed rest because I had to see my doctor once a week still and go to the hospital for my non-stress tests that were twice a week. Other than that they wanted me sitting or lying down just as long as my feet were up for the duration of the day. All in all I gained 67 pounds total. Oh and the reason I knew I had preeclampsia or what made me call my doctor to see if I had it was because I had gained 14 pounds in one week when I was 6 months pregnant. That is not normal!!! Anyway long story of why I didn't take too many pictures the last month. I wish I took some pictures of my legs after having her though, it looked like I had elephantitis! Haha! (I can look back and laugh now, then.....not so much)
