Oh my goodness how awesome! You may have already announced this, but are you planning on finding out the sex of the baby before it’s born?

Well geez girl! Looks like I look about 8 weeks preggo! πŸ˜›


15 Lori December 17, 2010 at 5:49 pm

Wow! That is seriously crazy! So cool you are recording it like this!


16 Jessica December 28, 2010 at 8:12 pm

So, this is kind of a weird comment, but the picture of you at 8 weeks slightly resembles my own belly (maybe not the actual measurement). I’ve been struggling with this for awhile now, and no matter what I do to my diet or workout regimen, I can’t seem to shake the pooch. AND, I obsess over it…

Any advice?


17 laury December 29, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Hey, Jessica. You may not like my answer, but my best advice is to not obsess over it. My stomach was never perfect, it probably looked like it does in that 8 week photo most of the time. I was able to get it in the best shape when I stopped obsessing over it being “perfect” and just switching up my ab routine frequently. I felt it always looked the best in the summer when I was eating lighter cleaner foods all the time. Post-baby I will be happy if I get back to looking how I did at 8 weeks πŸ™‚


18 Jessica December 29, 2010 at 4:52 pm

I think this answer works out just fine πŸ™‚ Thank you doll!


19 laury December 29, 2010 at 6:52 pm

surely πŸ™‚

I just came across your blog and it’s wonderful! I cannot believe what a cute preggers belly you have! Hopefully I’ll look like that sometime in the next year πŸ˜‰


21 Angie January 7, 2011 at 10:52 pm

You look like your just getting bigger in your belly and no where else, that’s hard to do when your preggers keep it up with whatever your doing (workouting!)… I hope the rest of my body stays like yours when I have kids! what’s your secret?!


22 laury January 7, 2011 at 11:02 pm

Aww, thanks so much. You’re so sweet πŸ™‚

I HAVE lost a little muscle tone in my arms, and things have definitely grown other places (child bearing hips, lil)…but basically I am trying to eat healthy and get to the gym regularly! My workouts have slowed down…but I think it has a lot to do with my not having the “eating for 2” mentality. Although, as my pregnancy progresses….so does my appetite. We will see in months ahead what happens. Whatever it is, I am just going with it πŸ˜‰


23 Shayla February 2, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Wow you look awesome and I agree with Angie. I hope too look like that when I have a baby – you’re all baby and still tiny everywhere else! You look great and enjoy this moment in all your pregnancy glow πŸ™‚


24 laury February 2, 2011 at 10:21 pm

Thanks so much, Shayla! It doesn’t always feel like that but all in all I feel pretty good!!!!!


25 Charlie February 3, 2011 at 8:15 pm
