Self Portrait Challenge:"Portrait of".....An Expanding Body

Ok, you have to give my a tiny break in this second picture I had just gotten up about 10 minutes before. I'm feeling more pregnant now. I generally have super easy pregnancies but if I had to rate them I'd say this is the hardest on me so far. No problems at all, just feeling a lot more tired. Jack isn't taking naps anymore and constantly bending over has caused some major back pain. When I get up in the morning my body is stiff and achy and by the evening my back hurts and I'm exhausted. I know this is all because I have Jack and Stella running around now, and I'm not really getting a break during the day. WA WA WA, ok enough whining. LOOK AT THAT AMAZING BELLY. Isn't it incredible there's a BABY in there!! I've felt lots of kicks and I've taken to calling the baby Elvis (Mainly because John refuses to let us name the baby Elvis if it's a boy, who doesn't like the name Elvis? It's a classy name!! ) More self portraits here

Check out that awesome bump! I can't wait to start feeling the baby. I'm at 14 weeks now, and just loving the tiny bump I've got. You look amazing!

oh, and my boss's husband wanted to name their son elvis but she wouldn't have it so they settled on using it as a middle name.

I bet it is tiring with the two kids running around, and now with Jack stopping his nap. Wow.

Trey has gone to one nap and that was an adjustment.

You and your belly are beautiful. It is so exciting to feel the baby kick.

Hope your energy increases

Hey! HEY! I thought of another boy's name: OTTO
I thought you kinda liked 'Oscar' and this is another 'O' name. I think it's really cute.
