    Heather, we already know that this is going to be an awesome baby, and if there’s anyone who didn’t know that yet, THIS WILL SHOW THEM.

    You’re awesome.

  • Katiemacdoddlebug

    Heather, your belly looks just like mine does! (I’m not pregnant).

    Love the Fairy Princess props! Looking great! Totally loved seeing Leta’s room yesterday, I love your style! There is a woman, by the name of Ali Edwards, who is a celebrity scrapbooker/life artist and she is soon to have a baby. She shared pics of the baby’s nursery, if you have time, you really should check it out. it is so awesome!

    I even think she is a reader of yours, she actually mentioned your name earlier last week in a post!

    These are pretty much the best photos of you ever. I mean that in a complimentary fashion.

    I have come here often and enjoy your blog, but I have never left a comment until now. I am due on June 14th, had my ultrasound the same day you did and found out I am having my 3rd girl. Only problem is I don’t have a tutu like you. Thanks for posting the baby bump photos. (I think I’ve gained 20 pounds already.)

    What a beautiful portrait series… it should be called “Dooce… a wash of hormones”. Your expression in the second one kind of reminds me of a Cover Girl campaign, the sheer delight that wearing too much cheap make up (too many sparkles)naturally brings to a girl.

    Um, if this is 20 weeks pregnant I want to be pregnant.

  • bmac

    See people – she doesn’t make Chuck do anything she’s not willing to do herself. :)

    All Hail Princess Pregnacy!

    So this is what 20 weeks without alcohol looks like!
    ;-)

  • http://apartmentgirl.org Erica

    amazing photos!

  • http://james.gameover.com/ James John Malcolm

    I, for one, welcome our new overlord Chuck, who puts things on Dooce’s head!

  • Connie

    Okay… this is some sort of strange combo of pregnancy bliss, fetish porn, and infantile princess fixation… with a little bit of mental hospital crazy mixed in… but hey! It’s workin’ for ya babe! ;-)

  • http://bellonadarling.blogspot.com/ S

    Those are absolutely fantastic photos! I’m both excited and nervous to see what week 22 will look like. Pregnancy is being much nicer to you than it is to me (19 weeks, and I’ve already got stretch marks, ugh!).

  • Leah

    Oh My God your so adorable!!!
    Glad you are feeling better:)
    And I’m glad that I’m not the only one
    with pictures of myself in a tutu:)

    Great Design. Nice to know you here. Just following you on twitter, guest which one ?:D

  • rissa

    The whole time I’m looking at this I’m just wondering… what does Leta think? lol. Adorable. You should continue these silly shots for your baby. Something new and special just for her. :) (Well, and for us, too. hehe)

  • http://theresmoretolifethanlaundry.blogspot.com/ kristi

    I’m a little scared of you right now…

  • Jet

    Okay, I’m a little hesitant to say this, only in part because I don’t want to think about what it says about me, but, damn, those pictures are hot.

  • Lisa

    awesome. ever since i watched the terrible-hilarious movie Run Ronnie Run, i have been waiting to get pregnant so i can wear this shirt:

    but now i want you to wear it!

  • Carley

    That’s so weird – I wore that same outfit to work today!
    You look great!

  • http://www.grafficgeorgiamom.blogspot.com Andee

    LMAO at these pictures! And of course, you look great.

    Psssttt! Little secret – you ALWAYS gain more the 2nd time around. It’s a bummer.

  • Tori

    So you waited until Leta was out of the house before you touched her toys, right?

    I can only imagine her reaction when she sees these photo’s. It could have only been better if you’d had Chuck and Coco staring at the Tutu.

  • Becca

    Love these Heather!! You are freaking cute!!!

  • http://www.edarling.de Maya Bekanntschaften

    Wow, i like pregnant mom´s blog, i have bookmarked three of them and i like to follow pregnancies. i am happy to discover a new one, i ll keep on reading you,,,,
    Keep posting

  • Jess

    did Jon survive the photoshoot?

    anyway, I think noone can spot the 17pounds.. like my tummy is bigger, sadly, since im not preggie =(

  • http://www.knitdelaware.wordpress.com Krista M

    Dear Dooce,

    I love you and your smartass blog, but please refrain from complaining about a 17 pound weight gain when you can still fit in your daughter’s shirt, and I can not get my son’s shirt over my right forearm. That will be all.

    Smooches!

  • mscyndi

    Those photos are awesome! You look awesome! You look so happy.

  • Sarah

    WOW Heather .. congrats on the weight GAIN :) you look awesome and happy, and I couldn’t be happier for you!!

    p.s Leta’s room: sweet and beautiful for a princess!!

    What are in the pink and black boxes in the bookshelf? I’m guessing lots of princess junk. But just asking!

  • Ninotchka

    OMG. I had no idea you were pregnant! That is so awesome. Congratulations!

  • Stephanie

    Awesome. ROFLMFAO

  • http://www.piecrustpromises.com Dana

    Dude. I just snorted yogurt out of my nose. YOGURT! Thank god I didn’t put granola in it this morning. I think you could call those photos hysterically beautiful.

  • Ashley

    You all should get Leta some cute little monsters here so she can practice on having a tiny monster around. :)

  • http://faydean.typepad.com amy j

    ok, sarcasm noted for those of us who mentioned you didn’t look that gleeful in your other pregnancy photos. Since there are so out of the norm for you, I think I prefer thoughtfully contemplative Heather photos more. This was a bit jarring to the psyche. Though you look great in a tutu!

    Oh, and btw, where exactly is the 17 lbs…in your ankles?

  • JFly

    You are the prettiest princess in all the land.

  • http://kerrisullivan.blogspot.com/ Kerri Sullivan

    hahaha, I love you!

  • dave

    The rack is looking great!

  • http://bywayofdetroit.blogspot.com/ Krysta

    greatest. pictures. EVER.

  • Stacey

    I absolutely love the pictures! Too cute!!!

    Your sense of humor and kickass sarcasm brighten my day; I love reading your website!

  • Peggy

    Too cute!

  • http://www.dyarfamily.com/babyfoodblog Kelly

    How adorable! And there is no way you have 17 lbs additional on you – you look fantastic.

  • Susan S. Johnson

    LOL! You crack me up! Didn’t Chuck wear that same tutu not long ago?

  • Melly

    Look at your pretty belly!

  • http://kimskorneradventures.blogspot.com Kim’s Korner

    So the day Princess Aurora gets married, I do hope you’ll have this up on a big screen behind the head table ;-)

    Love the pics!

    You look absolutely wonderful!

    And happy.

    And just a little bit crazy.

    But that’s why we all love you! ;-)

  • Robin

    I’m sitting at work hating today and I do my daily “what’s Dooce up to?” then OMG, thank you. You made my day. Too bad your 20 weeks baby belly is my every day belly. I’m so glad you feel better! Cannot WAIT to meet this lil baby girl!

  • JennyPenny

    For someone who is nearing 19 weeks of pregnancy, photos like this are just too rare in the world. Hang in there, mama. Can’t wait to finally meet you at your signing in Austin :)

  • Katie

    Well this totally made my day.

  • Kate

    Oh my, that totally made my day. No, YEAR! Great to hear you are feeling so much better and princess-like!

  • Sarah

    Wow, these are a little frightening. :) I just found out I’m pregnant and it’s great to see I have so much to look forward to! ;)
