This is a picture from week 12 when I thought I was actually “showing.” I even emailed it to my Mom. Here’s a picture of me showing! Ha…ha…ha…
Now for laughs I’m going to insert week 31 pic of me wearing that same top.
Whoa! Or perhaps this one is more accurate…
No, I’m kidding.. I think this one captures it best.
I’m feeling very good and relaxed these days. I thought the third trimester would have all kinds of craziness in store for me, but it seems that the transition was just a blip on the radar and then my body adjusted. Who knows what may happen in July and August, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I continue to feel so comfortable.
Word of advice- tell only your closest friends and family the gender of your baby and tell everyone else that you don’t know yet. I’ve had two baby showers at work and now I am swimming in baby girl pink frou frou outfits. If I had kept my mouth shut, I would have gotten gender neutral yellow and green! Anything but pink! Not to say that I don’t appreciate the thoughtfulness and kindness of people putting together a shower for me. I definitely do. I’m just puzzled why there has to be so much pink in general. Baby boy outfits are just as bad.. all the blue and images of cars and trucks and sports paraphernalia. Gender stereotyping and conformity at its source!
When I stand out on the deck at night, the fireflies blink and glow all around like a field of stars. The crickets and peepers are a peaceful racket all the way down to the river. The days have been so nice and cool, but I’m sure the hot weather isn’t far behind. That will be when I set up a lawn chair next to the AC unit in the bedroom.
I can’t wait to meet the pooch!
