Tick Tock...

And we are still pregnant. But I'm starting to really feel like I'm going to stop being pregnant soon. This may not mean the baby's coming early.... but just the fact that I no longer feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever is significant. I think I'm starting to feel excited, although excited butterflies in my stomach and just getting kicked in the stomach and lungs seem to feel very similar.

I caught a glimpse of myself in a full length mirror for the first time in weeks. "Whoa, is that me?" I'm really looking a lot bigger than I feel. That's a good thing, right? The stretch marks have moved over to the left side of me and are slowly creeping north. Such un-prettiness. Oh well, it's a mommy battle-scar, right?

As uncomfortable as I am, I would much rather be large and uncomfortable than deal with the constant pukiness of the first 5 1/2 months of this pregnancy. I'll take an achey back and swollen ankles (that I can't see) over mad dashes to the puke-room any day.

So, here we go with another week, we'll see what happens......

It's always great to look bigger than you feel. That is precisely the reason why I've been avoiding mirrors these days!

My first came naturally ten days early- water broke in the kitchen getting ready to go for a walk... Soooo any day now! Be excited! Or, I will be excited for you!
