WARNING! The following post contains pure, unadulterated baby belly shots!! Much skin is visible, though it’s not exciting enough to get a mention on Fox.
Okay, so you have all heard how huge I am… I guess I am brave enough to share the actual images.
This is me, today, at almost 41 weeks. Monkey stayed over at Ellen and Dan’s, so we got a little dressed up and went to dinner at the Olive Garden. I know it’s a chain, but it’s a chain I can love with flavors I crave. Oh yes, and Breadsticks.
This is me in my jammies. We are frankly shocked at how large the belly has grown. My own zip code here I come!!
Here is some full frontal belly. My belly is 52 inches around at it’s proudest point! He is gonna be a big baby. Big, big baby.
I am maintaining a decent mood, thanks to Lee’s willingness to purchase the second season of Veronica Mars and have it shipped to me overnight, and his ever loving foot massaging hands. Yay foot massages! The very pregnant woman’s very best friend!!
We meet with the Doctor on Monday. If I have not gone into labor before then, we will discuss a “plan” for induction. I will try and put it off as long as possible, but even so, the baby will be had on or around tax day at the very latest.
And now onto some cute Monkey pictures, she has been growing a lot too! She is doing very well in school, is in the top reading group in her class, and is constantly scoring perfect scores on her tests, of which they have many. (I don’t remember tests in Kindergarten. Does anyone else?)
Here she is with Lily Jane. She was such a patient little girl. She just loved holding this little bundle of joy!!
Here she is on her way to school a few says ago, all dressed up with poofy hairballs and clippy’s. Her newest favorite word is “totally”. As in, “They are totally the cutest hair ties ever mom, Totally.”
She was very disappointed that I did not go into labor on Sunday, but seems to have recovered now. We are resting, cleaning, and preparing for the baby. She is on Spring Break this week, so I am going to try my very best to get up and about with her. Ice cream shop visits, walks on the beach, maybe even kite flying. We shall see.
