of life.....that's exactly what Fallon is. Pregnant women are so breathtakingly stunning to me. There is a peace and a joy so obvious in them that it brings a smile to my face whenever I see someone blossoming with life. Fallon was no exception. She is one of those people you would see on the street looking glorious and beautiful and even if you didn't know her, you would be compelled to smile at her and nod as if to say "I see you. You are beautiful. And your belly is a glorious, amazing gift." You may even whisper as you hold the door open for her words of congratulations for the life that is coming and for all of the hopes and dreams we can think of for another human being. I left my time with Fallon feeling like somehow, someday, I
wanted needed to be pregnant again. To feel that anticipation, that hope, that longing to meet this person who lives within and beneath your heart.
You know how sometimes you hear of these women that didn't even know they were pregnant and one day felt a bit odd in their tummies and had a baby like an hour later?!? I always feel SO sorry for them because I feel like they got robbed of one of the greatest gifts of pregnancy, the anticipation. I knew 9 days after my Kennedy was conceived that I was pregnant because of this website. So I had literally 10 months of praying and dreaming and waiting. And I loved. every. second. of. it. People everywhere I went gave me looks of love and approval....words of congratulations and encouragement.
:::insert sound of record scratching::::
All of this being said, I trust you know this, but I think it never can be said enough times. You must never ever EVER give your smiling approval over someone's bulging belly....pat it accordingly...or offer words of congratulations....if you are not 100% certain and I mean FOUR HUNDRED PERCENT CERTAIN that the woman is, indeed, pregnant. Just trust me on this one if you've never pondered this before. Unless you see the head actually coming out, just don't do it. After I had Averi, I held onto quite a bit of extra weight and I had someone ask me if I was expecting when I wasn't. "No," I said. "But now...thanks to you, I AM EXPECTING one thing....and that's to go to the gym on Monday."
But sweet Fallon IS pregnant. And she.....is beautiful. Here are my favorites from her session.
