You wanna see?


Have you seen Jon and Kate Plus 8? Yeah, the woman had litters of kids, and then, after the second set of multiples, sextuplets, she lifted her shirt and bore her flabby abs for us all to see. She knew we all wanted to see her saggy baggy skin AND she then got cosmetic surgery pro bono because some surgeon's wife saw the show and got him to help her out. Nice huh?
So on Sunday as we were arriving to church my daughter told me that she and I look just alike. Well, that we look pretty much the same, except that I have wrinkles and she doesn't. Oh, and then she mentioned the stretchmarks that she doesn't have either. Nothing makes you hold your head up like a proud pregnant hippo like your daughter making mention of your imperfections before you have to waddle in to church late with your slew of stretchmark makers in tow. Luckily I have a pretty good sense of humor. Notice my laugh lines in the above picture? If you have any dermatologist friends would you please refer them to my blog? I'm not so prideful that I'd say no to some botox.

And now, for my other beauty marks. Do you see this belly? Yeah, that baby in there still has 12 weeks of growing to do. Twelve long, hot bloated weeks...The baby alone will be growing at an average of 1/2 a pound a week, can you imagine what I'll look like when July rolls around? I'm really posting this for my sisters who don't live close enough to poke at the bun in there, but again, if anyone has a friend who needs skin grafting and/or has a doctor friend who wants to trim this thing up for me in a few months and give the ol' girls a lift I'd go ahead and post my belly shots, I'm not shy. But Bradshaw sisters be warned-and this goes for in-laws too Tina, kiss your bikinis goodbye because we have some big fatty baby genes running through our blood! Tina-stock up on your cocoa butter creme now my friend!

I am so disappointed! I was expecting a picture of a whale, or bright, glaring, red, angry stretch marks. Instead you misled us! You look beautiful! My preggo pictures look like mug shots from the county jail! I hear ya on the saggy boobs and stomache flab though. I have a secret account that is growing to slow for my liking so that one day everything will be lifted and tucked back in! Oh a girl can dream! ;)

Why are you complaining? You look so cute. I on the other hand haven't even hit 12 weeks and I've already grown out of all normal size jeans. Plus this baby's riding real low, so I can't even try to do them up under the belly. Nope I'm stuck with maternity pants already!

These ARE maternity pants. They are stretchy ones at that, and I will be wearing them daily as I'm too lazy to buy anything new, and really, the only clothing I feel like wearing is pajamas. Really, stop by and see, that's usually what I'm in!

Your hot. I could use a little pro bono cosmetic surgery too. What I would give for a little elasticity in my skin.

Tracy said...

Wendy you always crack me up! And what mom wouldn't want a little lift here and there after kids? I already told Raymond that's in my plans! :) You look great though!

Nice belly shot sister -- but listen, this belly has got nothing on Kristy's pregnancy belly. That beast was 4 feet around! Granted, she did have two in there, but you look like a midgy compared to her. Can't wait to see what it looks like in 2 months though -- maybe with some more Dr. Peppers and those damn huge cookies (I am so mad you gave me that recipe!), you might get close to Kristy's girth! :) Love ya - Jillian
