40 whole weeks belly pic + midwife update

Have you noticed how the quality of these mirror selfie belly photos has been decreasing over the weeks?  If I have to post a 41 week shot or a (heaven forbid!  I'm serious right now.  Lord, can you please forbid it?) 42 week shot, they are gonna be some doozies.  And by "doozies" I of course mean "terrible."

Okay, 40 weeks and still standing.  Barely.

How rural (read: inconvenient) is your house? {Questions from the Combox}

I've been informed that it's been too many days since I've blogged and people are starting to imagine me cozied up on my babymoon with my sweet tiny.

No. Such. Luck.

Tomorrow is my 40 week due date so I'll be sure to post a photo of the frightening goddess-like belly for your shock and wonder enjoyment, but until then, I will answer one of the questions from Monday's combox because placenta brain.

Where do all those kids sleep?

A few days ago, a reader named Mari Mari left this comment on a post "since you're talky talkative, wouldn't you like to share with us details about your sleeping arrangements? Now that you have to make room for one more bed/crib/sleeping stuff, I`m very curious to know how do you fit so many beds in a house, if kids share room, and what about boy/girl ratio, does it count at all? :-)"

Mari Mari, thank you so much for asking this question!  Even if you're the only one interested, placenta brain has prevented me from having a coherent blog thought in some weeks now, so rooming conditions at La Casa Borobia are going to have to suffice for err'body.

What I Wore Sunday, 39 weeks prego edition

During the last days (weeks? Sigh. It could be weeks I guess.) before a bloggy friend's baby is born, I find myself scouring their various accounts multiple times a day....

Wait.  That sounds creepy.  Um, I imagine  that there is someone out there that does that.  Yeah, that's it.

39 week belly

The good news is that everything seems to be coming together- all my ridiculous visions and pre-baby plans.  The bad news is that despite my record-shattering size and my seemingly fail-proof labor day theory, I am not feeling laborish at all.  Oh, I've had some laborish moments in the last couple of weeks, sure.  And some crying for no reason and some comalike sleepiness.  But he's just....not cooked yet.  I can tell.  Even though I am 13 pounds over what I was on Mary's delivery date, I can still tell.

Ready for the jaw dropping photographic evidence of me gaining over 50 pounds already this pregnancy?

We gots new birds 'cause that's what every newborn needs

Hey, remember that one time that the phone rang at 6:24 a.m. on a Wednesday morning and it was the post office calling to tell you that your box of 16 birds was waiting for you in their package area?

You guys, I could hear them cheeping their little beaks off in the background and I was all "Oh my gosh, they're starving!  They need water!  SOMEBODY SAVE MY BABY BIRDS."

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Come and get us, summer. We're ready.

You guys.  It worked.  Remember that hair brained scheme I cooked up a few weeks ago?

Well, not only did he decide that yes, clearly this would bring peace to the Middle East, but that we should not banish it to the back with the lonely tire swing but rather that he would WILLINGLY dismantle the unused glorified dog shack in the front yard ("play house") and put this together for us instead....

38 week belly pic

One of the comments on yesterday's post made me feel a whole lot better about non-stop preg talk these days.  You know what she said? If'n somebody don't like the baby talk, maybe they should rethink their Catholic momblog reading habit.  I'm paraphrasing, as usual, but it did make me laugh.  Because do you know what I L-O-V-E reading on other people's blogs?  Pregnancy updates.  You know what I L-O-V-E seeing on other people's blogs?  Belly pics.

So I'm just gonna post all about the babe because soon enough I will be not pregnant anymore and I will get back know what?  I don't even know what I write about here anymore.  I'll get back to rambling about non-torso related things, how 'bout that?

Less talky, more belleh.

Pre-baby photo dump

Does this happen to everyone? I have no non-baby thoughts left in my brain.  And if I do, they are not suitable to share in polite company because honey badger. 

So I'm going to share the photos that I just snatched off the camera and you can scroll through the feed of the 'gram to see the happenings and we can all pretend like that's some quality blogging.  Bueno.

My totally reasonable way to pick a labor day (7qt)

I am having the best time reading through everyone's birthday and weight guesses for the belleh babe.  If you want to make your OWN guess without my ridiculous neuroses tainting your judgement read no further!

Let us entitle this Being Weird About Numbers and Junk.

And via the power of the internet, I already know there are others out there like me.  Others who can't leave the volume on the t.v. at an odd number, for example.  Or who wear their watch on their right wrist because they wear their wedding band on their left hand.  STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT. I'M TOTALLY FINE.

Lemme parse out the details of this picture so as to give you a little glimpse into this day, m'kay?

Due date decided! Happy, happy day.

My faboooolous midwife just left. Remember the due date confusion? Well she is really super totally very sure that the earlier date, the May 29th one, is the right one. Which means that days I'll be 37 weeks?

37 weeks is a term pregnancy, people.
