PREGNANCY PHOTOS!!!

PREGNANCY PHOTOS!!!

This pregnancy I vowed to myself to take on a different state of mind and attitude.  Not just on how I viewed being pregnant but also in how I took care of body.  Before my husband and I took the natural first steps to conceiving I started working out and running consistently at the very beginning of the year.  Me and my workout partner CJ were getting up at least 5 days a week at 5:15am to run and lift weights at 24 hour fitness.  So when I did find out I was pregnant I was able to continue my journey in trying to remain fit.  Now, I am not the fittest pregnant person, which I am ok with, but I am proud at how I have taken responsibility for how much weight and body fat I have taken on with these two babies.  So with that, I wanted to go all out with my pregnancy/maternity photos.  Mind you, I loved my maternity photos that I did my first pregnancy.  They remind me of how much of a team my husband and I had to become in order to raise our first child in a city that was so far away from any family.  However, these current maternity pictures remind me of how BLESSED I am to 1)Be able to carry life with no complications; 2)Have great health in my mind, body, and spirit; and 3) now be surrounded by a community of talented people who give of themselves in helping me see my dreams become reality.
