Mommy and Me Monday | The 101st ed. | The bellies

January 22, 2012 in mommy and me

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

We’re at week 37!  Wow!  This little girl will be here soon (some people consider 37 weeks full term).  I haven’t done a belly picture in a while, and thought I was due one.  But wanted something a little different.  I guess I’ve never been very good with weekly shots. The last I can find from #2 is at 35 weeks.  And, well, I look crazy (but totally in a justified way)!

So, here’s my “different” shot.  Three beautiful bellies.  Mine just slightly bigger than the other two.

Mommy and the bellies

And, seriously, try to lay down like this with a 5 and 3 year old and not crack up.  Because that’s all we were doing.

jammies and bellies

And, I’m going to be bold again. I’m asking for prayers for my low platelets, once again (<–that link explains a lot).  I have my weekly appointment Wednesday, and we should know then what type of plan we are looking at.  I’m praying that my body does what it’s supposed to do and no plan is necessary, but I have a feeling we’ll have some plan.  And, while I know I really don’t want an induction (I’m terrified it would result in a c-section) at this point, it sure is sounding good and would make life easier.  But, there is still so much uncertainty there, that I’d rather my body do it on it’s own.

Congrats, to Emily for winning the giveaway for the 100th Mommy and Me.  I’d love to have more sponsored Mommy and Me Mondays if anybody would like to pitch in:)

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

It was hilarious trying to get one where we all looked good.

I love the belly pictures…. how cute. I will surely add you to my prayer list. I remember that pray worked with N when you were going through this back then…. I am hopeful that all will go well this time too. Have a great week dear. Much love, Lura


Krystyn January 29, 2012 at 9:46 pm

Thank you for adding us to your list! Yes, it did work with N and I know it will this time. I’m *trying* not to think about it, but it sure is hard. So far, the numbers look good.

Thank you! Results were good and numbers were high. Of course, they can change, but the doctor was very supportive with my wait and see approach.

Happy 101st post! Haha!

Love this “belly” shot of you girls! I hope you have good luck with your platelets…complicated pregnancies/deliveries are no fun. Sending prayers your way!

You are just too sweet and wonderful…you need to live closer so I can come and visit you when I’m feeling down in the dumps.

I love seeing the way you’ve created a real community here on your blog, Krystyn.
So, I’m new here, how do I add my pic? Just leave a link?
Here is my pic of me and my son:

I’m lifting you up in prayer now and standing in agreement with you that you’ll be walking in the fullness of the healing Jesus gave you on the cross. Shalom to you and yours! (Shalom = God’s wholeness is with you because He is with you so that you have nothing missing nor broken in any area, In Jesus’ name)

Hi Donna Marie-
At the bottom of the post, there is a place (linky) to click and add your link. Each week, everybody puts up a new post with a new picture of them with their kid/kiddos. Then, they usually add some words, tell a story, etc. You can see examples of other posts as well by visiting their links (click on the thumbnails). I encourage to you visit others and leave some comment love.

Thank you very much for your prayers. They are appreciated!


bonz @ Little Zoie's Steps January 25, 2012 at 9:15 am

love the shot!
praying for your safe delivery :)


Krystyn January 29, 2012 at 10:01 pm

It sure was fun taking it. Thanks.

Look at those bellies!!! It makes me want to tickle them! Not long now before there will be another tiny belly to blow kisses on…

Oh, and they have some super tickly bellies!

Your Mommy & Me Monday posts have helped me to remember to take pictures of myself with my son & not all of just my son or him & his Daddy. :)
Love this pic of you & the girls! So cute!


Krystyn January 29, 2012 at 10:05 pm

So glad to have inspired you! It really does help get pictures of mommy (for me, too), even if it’s one picture Sunday night…I’m still there!
