Pop Goes The Belly

It has been a busy couple of days -- sorry for my absence. We were in Toronto, shooting a friend's wedding (I'll share photos later) from Friday to Sunday, which was fabulous -- the both of us really needed the little vacation, even if just for two nights. We spent most of our hotel time watching the Olympics, What Not to Wear & those captivating Magic Bullet infomercials, but now that we're home, I can't say I miss television too much. I haven't had one in about four years and I don't really feel like I'm missing anything too special.

Today my friend Meagh & I went to my midwife appointment & for the first time ever I COULDN'T PEE. Honestly. They just wanted a little pee on the stick and I couldn't give them anything. Figures. The only time I need to, I can't. Either way, all of my tests have been just peachy so far, my numbers for everything have been right where they should be and I'm growing at exactly the right speed. As my midwife put it, "This little one knows what their doing -- they've read the books."

Now, that being said, there was one weird thing that came up with my blood work -- It turns out that I'm not immune to rubella. This just means that when I was vaccinated as a child that part of the immunization didn't take. This actually cracks me up a lot. As a stubborn little German girl myself, it seems only fitting that the only thing I'm not immune to would be German Measles. Hilarious.

To finish, here are some photos of my baby belly today -- 17 weeks and 4 days.

I always feel like photos of my belly make it look bigger than it really is, but my midwife assured me that I'm not gaining weight too fast & that my uterus and baby are right where they need to be. Either way, seeing photos of myself like this make me go "eep!" and wonder insanely about what weeks 20, 30 & 40 will look like. (It also makes me realize how very small my breasts are staying.) Either way, I love that I'm showing more now & looking less like I live in my fridge.

@miss lips: awe, that would be fabulous. I've done shoots taking pregnant photos of others before, but I'd love for another photographer to take photos of me ^_^

Hey you,

sorry for make a comment on such an old posting of you.

I just found you at flickr a few days ago and also your blog. (and love it :-) )
Now I´m spending my time to read your blog from the beginning to the end.
And I just read this posting and you are saying that you are german?
Really? Are you born in Canada and your parents are german or what?

Because I´m from Germany too. I live at Potsdam at the moment.

Sorry if I bother you, but I´m just curious.

I love your blog and congratulation to your beautiful daughter.

best wishes.
