i have finally popped

Third Trimester Photography - 3I was a little apprehensive about this title, only because ‘popped’ is so easily mistaken for another word. But it’s true. My stomach has finally popped. It happened somewhere around 25 weeks. I truly do look pregnant now! Well, maybe not in a black dress. But I do swear that it’s evident. :-)))

Third Trimester Photography - 2Holly and I are so excited to breeze through the remaining 13 weeks. Can’t you tell?

  1. May I suggest the book, Back Labor No More by Janie McCoy King. I used the lift technique for two out of the three births and only wished I did it for my first. If the baby is in the right position it really works so make sure you are where you want to be to have the baby before you do the lift.

    Lovely bump :)


  3. Soon, you will be even more excited when the baby finally poops. It’s the most exciting thing.


  4. I remember that day when I was pregnant with my first! It’s so exciting to finally look pregnant.

    (Of course, at 41+ weeks with my second, I’m now ready to not look pregnant . . . . heh.)

    lmao at your first sentence, because that’s exactly what I read at first…hahaha. Funny how black is so slimming..at certain angles in black I don’t even look that pregnant either!!

    • Haha I was afraid of that. It’s the same as when bloggers discuss their “No Poo” lifestyle. I automatically think that they’re talking about a bowel movement, when really it’s about not using shampoo. This post would’ve gone a completely different way if I was talking about the word that is similar to popped!

      And yes, I had always heard that black is slimming, but didn’t realize how slimming until becoming pregnant.

      Congrats on your pregnancy! <3<3


  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
