You Know What Rockin' the Bump Leads to? Find Out What's Next!

All of your adorable baby bumps linked up for Rockin' the Bump have given me baby fever!  We have almost 200 linkers so far and the linky doesn't close until tonight. We got lots of attention, even getting a write up over on Babble!

If you haven't joined in, there is still time! And be sure to visit the other baby bump mamas- it's a great way to get to find new blogs to read!




 

Looking at all the belly pics made me pout a little and wished I could rock a new bump because:

1. I never did all the cute week-by-week or even month-by-month belly pics.

2. I never got professional preggo pics taken.

3. Pregnancy would give me a ton of new blog topics.

4. I could wear a bikini this summer and have people oooh and aw over my belly.

5. My maternity clothes are cuter than my regular clothes. Even though I've given most of them away.

6. Having another baby could even things up around here. If we had four kids, everyone would have a partner for the rides at an amusement park.

7. I love getting to hear the baby's heartbeat and feeling him(you know it would be another "him") move around.

8.  It would be fun to try to Zumba with a big ol' bump.

9.  Hubs treats me like a queen when I'm pregnant. I like being Queen.

10.  I would totally tweet my labor.

But, then I remember:

My "baby" just turned 3 and is almost out of diapers. He's going to preschool, while the other two will be in full-day school for the first time this fall. OMG, there will be QUIET. And NO DIAPERS.  Plus, Hubs manned up and had the big snip-snip two years ago.

So, no more babies for me.

But, I still have baby fever.  Might as well roll with it!

You crack me up, Shell! I go through phases like that too, where I think I want another one... and then I snap out of it until the next time!

You come up with the coolest linkies. I didn't link up to Rockin the Bump cause my pictures totally sucked. But, I'm definitely linking up with this one. Thanks! And, yes all the Rockin bumpin pictures made me crave to be pregnant again.

And you are giving me baby fever, too, despite the snip snip in our house.

I wonder what the mailman is doing this afternoon? Absolutely kidding, messing with the mail(man) is a federal offense!

Look at you with all these wonderful ideas :) I know looking at all those "bump" pictures make me miss feeling pregnant then I have to snap back to reality and remember the whole swollen feet/legs or the fact I couldn't walk b/c of a pain in my butt/hip. But I know I'll do it again just to feel that baby move :)

You know it'll be hard to come up with *just* one (or ten) cute kid photos :)

Loved your list, esp. 9.

I love the pictures of those who linked. I already have baby fever and this certainly hasn't helped - lol!

I have exactly 1 belly pic that I know of and I can't find it. So frustrating! But baby pics? Those I have a ton of!

June 20, 2011 at 9:13 AM  
Blogger Mama S said...

That is such a cute idea! I love it!

I loved both of my second trimesters. They were just wonderful for those few months. I remember right after I had both of mine that I had withdrawals from feeling them move. Of course we might have another one so I just keep thinking I may get to feel them and have then all to myself one more time!

I love it! I wanted to do rockin the bump - but I seriously had 1 pic and it was awful! I'm so in for rockin the baby, though!

I didn't get any belly pics when I was pregnant either.. but I will TOTALLY be playing the next one.. I too have baby fever and my hubby had the snip snip as well.. sobs...

Ha! I know seeing all those bumps does make you want go back to being pregnant, huh? Which makes rocking the baby pictures the next next best thing. Sweet idea!

Will definitely be linking up. But will seeing all those adorable baby pics makes us long for another baby? Uh oh, dangerous...:-))

My "baby" will be 15 this week. I wish I had done the regular baby bump update photos too. I also wish I had professional photos taken. Let's see, what else? I wish it had been more socially acceptable to wear clothes that showed off the bump rather than hide it. All of my maternity clothes were enormous!

OMG Shell, when I saw your tweet about baby fever I was just thinking how you should have a linkup with baby pics haha! This is so awesome! I can't wait to be apart of it!

Blogger The Random Blogette said...

Awesome! I am so with you about being jealous of everyone's bump but realizing I am not having anymore. Every time I think about how neat it would be to be pregnant again I realize that my kids are so independent now. I just couldn't imagine taking care of another baby. Plus my 9 month old niece was sleeping over the other night and she woke up crying. Jacob said "It was like murder hearing her scream like that." We were all downstairs and didn't hear her crying. I looked at Jake and said, "See! This is why we don't need another baby around here."

I can't wait to link up Paige's baby pic. It is scary! No joke! I even have a couple of Jake that his birth mom gave us. Shocking, I know.

Oh I love this idea too! And you know as a new mom I have about a gazillion pictures!

And Shell, you know, maybe the 4th time will be the charm for a girl? You know I'm kidding. I'm in awe of anyone who has more than 1 kid.

My hubs refuses to get the snip snip b/c he is a wimp wimp. So I'll be back on BCP after this baby comes. Ugh!

haha Shell, you're hilarious! Love all the reasons to have another baby; especially the extra blogging fodder, but laughed out loud at you tweeting your labour! This was such a great post...wish I had thought of it myself! :) But I didn't. 'Cause you're the brilliant one! This linky is so popular and yes, I have seen and heard the buzz, and I want to say, "That's Shell...I know her...sort of..."

First I got to live vicariously through Emmy and her baby and now through my niece. Enjoy the quiet, and the lack of diapers. I do miss the fun parts of little people, but I don't miss diapers and spit up and only being able to sleep on my side with a pillow between my knees. hahaha.

Woop! Excited for this next one. I didn't have professional photo's either...nor did I take month by month or week by week shots when I was pregnant with our son. But now that we are TTC a second child, I'm DETERMINED to do that. Oh! And I will totally be tweeting my labor this next time. Twitter wasn't around (or at least "normal" people didn't use it) when I had Little Man.

Looking forward to this next linky!! I've got alot of cute pics.

Seriously, I could relate to that desire to have another one, tempered with the ... "but the youngest is almost in school!"

Plus being 41 sorta nixes that.

Whether I want another baby or not has been a recent obsession of mine. I agree it would be kind of fun to try Zumba with a belly. :) Too bad when I'm pregnant all I want to do is sit on the couch and eat chips.
