Bump Comparisons

I saw this lady comparing her bump with her 3 pregnancies and thought it was a fun idea! (Check her out by the way...you won't be disappointed!)
So here I am comparing Braden's bump to Maeva's bump.

I took a lot of pictures when I was pregnant with Braden, but not like I have this time...
Can I blame it on the fact that I didn't blog then?
Even though I did take plenty of pictures then none that I could really use to compare the bumps.

Clearly there is a big difference in the pregnancies,
just as there should be because every pregnancy and baby is different!
When I was first pregnant with Braden I went into the doctors weighing 110.
I was itty bitty... to the point where some thought I was ill. I wasn't - just didn't put on weight!
With Maeva, though that was clearly different.
I went in the doctors office weighing 20 pounds lighter than I was when I had Braden! :S

With Braden I put on the pregnancy weight easily.
I didn't know what I was doing really. I ate whatever I wanted and it was evident.
With Maeva, I did better.
I think part of it is that I had morning sickness more than with Braden.
I also ate better.
Honestly though, I think I just carry both babies differently.

I didn't plan on comparing the bumps, but I'm glad I did.
Its nice to see how different they are and how much better I've taken care of myself this time around!


  1. What a great idea to compare pregnancy's. Love all the pictures and outfits :)

  2. That's a fun idea! I think it's neat to document a pregnancy with baby bump photos, and it's certainly interesting seeing the difference for each time. :)

    1. I like to see the progress of my baby bump. I may not like the weight gain, but the pictures are fun and I'll love showing them to my children when they are older!

  3. What a fun idea! I should try this with my two pregnancies : ) Your baby bump is so cute by the way... I'd love it if you'd share this post on my blog's life lately link up. I think my mom readers would love this idea : )


    1. This idea just came to me today when I was reading another blog where the lady does the same! I'm going to check out your blog now!

  4. Thanks for linking up! I love the name Maeva : ) I have a friend who has a daughter named Maeve, but I've never met a Maeva... I really like that name!

    1. I love it too! It was a character in a book that I read a few years ago. It had just stuck with me! =)

  5. Love the comparisont. I want a baby too. BUHU!


    1. Thank you!
      What does BUHU mean? lol ;)

  6. Cute pictures :)
    It is fun to see how tiny you were!
    And you look a lot younger in your pictures with Braden too.
    Pictures are such a great thing.

    1. I agree, Jess! Pictures are so great!
      Its weird to see me so tiny... kinda makes me sad! I don't exactly want to be that tiny, but close(r) to it would be nice! =)
