Who ARE you?

This is what I say to myself whenever I catch a glimpse of the woman in the mirror with the bulging belly.

That can't be me - can it?  I mean, I don't look like that. I have abs. I have a waistline. And I know I've always been well endowed, but my boobs have shape.  I worked so hard last summer to lose those 10 lbs that I gained after the wedding and was in the best shape I've been in in a long time - maybe ever.  That can't be me.

But it is.

That's me in the mirror with the swollen belly.  That's me with the inflated boobs.  That's me with all the extra padding.

Then I remember something that makes it all worthwhile.  It's NOT just me.  It's US.

And that makes me smile at the woman in the mirror.


  1. Aww, you look seriously fabulous!! I know you don't feel it, but you really do look tiny!

  2. Aww thank you - you're so sweet :) It's just so bizarre to look in the mirror and know that's my body. On the plus side my husband seems to think it's cute - he loves rubbing my belly and feeling our little man kick.

  3. I just have to say that i love love love that saying...its not me..its us!!! LOVE THIS!!!
