|obvi this is going to be my entry into the epic selfie contest even though this is how I look all the time walking around.|
Why yes, those are my paint splattered Dansko professional clogs of frumpiness and my pocket-free maternity jeggings of shame. Thanks so much for noticing.
Speaking of the belleh, everytime I go anywhere my friends always ask how I'm feeling. And really I feel pretty great considering...everything. Clearly I can still levitate, so that's gotta be good for something. And honestly, I owe a LOT of this not-moping-at-death's-door feeling to The Belly Contraption. I canNOT recommend it highly enough. If you are pregnant and feel like unloading the dishwasher is about to send you into preterm labor (I'm looking at you, Amanda!), you have GOT to get one. Even if you only use it for 2 or 3 weeks. There is NO WAY I would be celebrating the book in that manner or taking my kids on field trips or even cooking if it weren't for this little life saver.
That's my new name.
The other thing that I suspect is that I really am closer to 34 weeks and not 36 weeks and that's why I'm not chomping at the bit for labor to start. When I was 36 and 37 weeks pregnant with Mary, I thought I would NEVER be unpregnant. That I would never meet my baby. That I would be hot and huge for the rest of eternity. I was spewing some serious unbridled lack-of-reason all over the place back then, yes I was. But this time around I actually feel like this pregnancy went by super fast and I can't believe that he could be born this very month and I'm just saying all those things I've always wished I could say near the end but never have been able to.
Basically I'm not miserable enough to be going into labor anytime soon.
Paul, looking out of the van window: Ooooh, I just saw a huge booger!
Cecilia, from her seat in front of him: Really? Did you eat it?!?!?
Me: Ceci, you sit right here and think about how nice people should treat others
Ceci: No, I'm just going to think of more mean things to do
Paul: We can't go to the Asian store or we're all going to become Asian!
Ceci: No Paul, it's a COMBINATION STORE, so American people and Asian people can shop there.
Paul: Oh, that's good.
