26 weeks and still self portraits

As we have been consumed with many work projects plus home projects like paint prep, my desire to have photos taken of me has not come to fruition. so, how about this silly self portrait? As I sat in the tub, elevating my swollen feet, I couldn't help but laugh at my view. I've actually always loved this view. Hard for me to believe that I actually have 14 weeks(ish) left. I'm so busy and active and deliberately still doing handstands, headstands and deep backbends, I am not sure how to imagine doing them then.......but I intend to keep practicing and you can see them in my yoga book next year!

As I wrote earlier tonight in my surrogacy book (another one you can read next year), I just felt that I poured my heart out and it felt so freeing. I can only hope that I have the strength to not edit my journal entries, but portray a raw and honest presentation of my journey. It's up. It's down. It's in between, but the driving force for me now is seeing mom and dad hold their sweet baby girl for the first time and know that I was a small part of that miracle. So, for tonight, this overworked and overtired mama is going to lie down and cheerfully wrestle between the two possible sleep positions left available with this body.......left side, or right side..........

And, BTW, my thighs are NOT that big! Distortion from the water, I promise!


  1. LOL your funny.... And Brave I would never take a picture like that :) You look great!

  2. Yeah, it is brave, because in actuality, I don't even wear shorts that are more than a couple inches above my knees. I am quite modest.....
