Weekly Photos {31 weeks}

It's been a super long time since I've posted.  Mainly because I don't care about blogging.  I do, however, enjoy going back over the past couple of years to read my blog posts and see what I was thinking and doing "this time last year".  

I have a terrible memory.  One thing that helps me remember "specifics" are photographs.  I can look back at a picture from 2 years ago and remember that specific day's details that otherwise, I would have completely forgotten.  For that reason, I take a lot of pictures.  I upload them to my shutterfly account at the end of every month and order the one's that I want to print, and the rest get stored away on a CD so that years from now I can look back and really remember.  

That's why I've decided to take more pregnancy photos.  It feels a little silly taking a bunch of weekly photo's, but I know that one day I will want to look back and remember every detail of my pregnancies.  I'm not a fortune teller, but there is a good chance that this, our 3rd pregnancy, will be our last.  I think I'm okay with that.  After I gave birth to Ingrid I went through such a mourning period of no longer being pregnant.  Every time I saw a pregnant woman jealousy would swell.  I think that's because I wasn't done yet.  I'm not sure how I will feel after this little girl is born.  My hope is that I will be able to feel contentment in the time that I was able to carry her.  

I decided since this could very well be my last-I am going to photograph it more.  I don't want to regret not having enough photos of this pregnancy to look back on.
