Just in Case

I don't want that last grumpy post to be the one you are all stuck with in case I do actually have this baby in the next few days. I'll admit though, while I was sitting in A's room last night at 2am and she was telling me that she just wanted to stay "wif you" and I was all bitter and tired and painy I was imagining the kind of post I could write about that today.

Instead I'll post a couple of pictures. Perhaps the last of the belly that compels total strangers to say all manner of dumb things to me. Such as yesterday. Gas Station. Kindly older gentleman who is pumping my gas...

"When are you due?"

"Next week."

"Oh! You're gettin' pretty big!"


Grit teeth. Smile. Nod.



My hair looks shorter in that picture but it is actually just pulled back. I had it done on Monday. This is what it looked like when it was actually done nicely, I was less grumpy and actually felt kind of attractive.

You're looking hot, babe. Hang in there. The waiting is the worst. And being pregnant in summer? Yeah, that's no fun. Been there.

You look so cute. I love your belly. Did you carry that high with Miss A too? I don't remember.

We just moved Ethan into a single bed and I have to say it is the best thing. When he gets up at night I just crawl into bed with him and he goes right to sleep! Much less fighting then when in the crib!! Although I'm not sure how much room I'll have as my belly grows bigger.

Oh! You gorgeous thing you!

I swear, when I am as far along as you I NEVER look that good! My NOSE gets pregnant along with the rest of me! But you just look beautiful!

What does some old man know about anything!

Girl, you look as amazing now as you did when you were the dancing pregnant lady at my wedding that every woman either wanted to be some day, or wished she had been back in the day. I'm so glad you came out on the weekend, too. Besides the fabulous belly (holy testament to physical strength, batman!) you have that fantastic glowy skin thing going. Enjoy the cooler weather and know you're carrying your unborn with panache!

Wow! I am feeling the love. Thank you everybody. You are all TOTALLY making up for all of the stupid people out there!!

I love your hair. I wish mine looked cute like that at that length, but it is just not a length I can seem to pull off (It goes all Lord Fauntleroy flippy-outy on me).

Anyway, you look cute, your belly looks cute, and I am hoping Miss A goes to sleep!

Super cute haircut! And super cute belly, too! Now I wish I'd been less grumpy at that stage of pregnancy and allowed myself to be photographed. Dammit.

I just love seeing belly pictures. They're the most beautiful and amazing thing! The bellies that is.
Isn't it refreshing to get a new do!? You look great. Can't wait to see you next week!
