bump: 34 weeks

Friday, April 5, 2013




A late beach bump today. I'm actually 35 weeks now, but let's just rewind a bit shall we... The lovely Belinda and I took advantage of the glorious Easter weather to snap these at Dee Why last week. Now our days are finally cooling down, but I'm sure I'll still have a few opportunities to bare my white belly to the sun in these last few weeks.

So yes, we're in single digits now people. I could give birth in 2 weeks, or in 7. Let's hope it's somewhere in between the two because we are definitely not ready to bring a baby home in a fortnight, but another 7 weeks of gestating may actually break my back. These days by 4 pm I'm full on waddling. It's pretty hot.

The little one seems to grow stronger by the day. We can watch its little feet kicking from my belly button to my ribs, over and over again. Another favourite trick is to press both feet hard into my ribs and push its bottom up as high as possible. Though its sometimes just plain uncomfortable, its mostly endearing. A beautiful affirmation that baby is healthy and strong.

p.s. thanks again Belinda, I love them!

  5. These images are just beautiful! Beautiful! I'm sure I've said it before, but you make such a lovely pregnant woman! I loved the description of the baby's gymnastics. It's incredible what they're capable of doing in there, isn't it?

  14. Look at you, beautiful, fearless in a two-piece in your third trimester! Hot mama. Belinda did a stunning job with these photos, you can almost feel the late summer... and the whole thought about it being anywhere from 2-7 weeks is just frightening and exciting all at the same time, isn't it? I'm in the same boat! AAH! Almost there! :D xx

  16. Such gorgeous images Gaby! You look magnificent!! But boo to a bad back. Nothing is quite so lovely as a Mumma-to- be waddling though (even though she would argue this). Hope all is lovely :) x

  30. Gorgeous photos! I can't believe you're going to be holding your baby in as soon as 2 weeks' time!!! What a lovely beach/pool. Reminds me of the one in Manley, but perhaps this beach/pool thing is an Aussie thing? Just moved back to Vancouver so doing some "nesting" of sorts myself. Can't wait to see you and the little bubba.
