Thas alota baby!!!

For those of you who have ever wondered, "Where exactly does someone who is 5 foot tall PUT a baby?" here's the answer...

Nowhere up and down for Tucker to go, so it all goes FORWARD!!! Not sure why people ever think it's good to say such things as, "Are you sure you're not having twins?", "Your baby is going to be HUGE," "You are HUGE," "There's NO WAY you will go to your due date because you are SO BIG," and my favorite, "You must be MISERABLE being so big," but I'm getting those kinds of comments out the wazoo these days!

Just thought I'd share the beauty that is my HUGENESS with all of you. :-) Under 2 weeks now!!! Crazy!!!!

The Magical Beauty of Pregnancy

Just thought I would share some of my FAVORITE parts of being 37 weeks pregnant (officially "full term", by the way). Now, I'm not one of those pregnant ladies that feels gross and cow-like (most days anyway). I have actually enjoyed being pregnant (most days anyway). I've always been one that thought pregnant women were beautiful and I've tried to keep that thought somewhere in my mind as I've become 8 times my normal size. :-) However, when I thought pregnant women were beautiful, I never saw the REAL beauty that is full term pregnancy. Here are some of my favorite parts...

For my first feat of beauty, I give you the "magically disappearing belly button"!!! Please note how there is almost NO actual button left on my belly!!

For my second feat, I give you "The magical growing feet"!!! Notice how they are three times their normal size - AND this is after soaking in epsom salts and sleeping with them propped up.

Despite the discomforts and oddities, I am feeling pretty good still these days. I'm not the picture of comfort or anything, but Tucker is getting pretty stinking funny as she bumbles around in there. :-)
Onlye 3 weeks to go!!!
