I Think I’m Going to Explode

I take heart never having heard of this actually happening but it pretty much feels like the baby is going to pop right out of my belly. I can feel her rolling around in there and my skin just can’t take anymore. I really can’t believe that I have another ten weeks of stretching to do. At my last appointment my doctor said I would probably only gain another 6 or 7 pounds total but I see that I have already gained 3 since that appointment 3 weeks ago. I have already gained more than 30 pounds! 30! No really, more than 30 pounds. Everytime she records my weight she asks me if I’m sure I reported correctly. I mean, she saw me when I went for my first appointment. If anything, I think I overestimated.

Baby’s Coming Home Bag

Since I woke up at 7, only to find out it was really 6, I entertained myself by using some of the stuff we got to put together baby’s coming home bag. Based on my online message board research this is something that many people do… so here’s my stab at it. Well evidently I can’t add any pictures via blogger today (why does blogger hate me?) so I’ll have to add it in later.

Baby Shower

Where to begin… we had a shower yesterday with all of Ben’s fam. They relly got me good this time with a surprise.


Ben helped to open the mountains of gifts and everything looked too tiny is his giant man-hands.

Somehow we managed to fit it all in the car.

I did really well right up until the end, Bern saved the gift from my family until last… I think she didn that on purpose.
We had a great time and it was so unexpected. Needless to say, Stunt Baby has been very, very busy.

We Are SO Close to Done


All we have left to do now is the trim and the doors and we’re totally done. Well except for the murals… but that’s ok so long as the walls are done.

Oh My God We Got a Something!

Yay! After one brief trip to Babies R Us to pick up a missing part we have lift off.

It’s awesome, I love it but I can’t try it cause Ben forbade me to put any of the animals in it :)

Something came!
The chief investigator checks it out…


Hmmm.. something’s not quite right..


Ta-Da!

Linea Negra


So as it happens the cute little line that I had running down the center of my belly is no longer so cute. Over the last week it has gotten much much darker, as the name would suggest. Which is fine, except mine is totally crooked and the top half and bottom half DO NOT line up on either side of my now out-y belly button. I’m trying not to freak out about it but how did this happen? I should sue whoever’s responsible for this mess for malpractice.

So here it is, perfectly rotund just in time for Christmas. Oh, did I mention that I was subjected to bellybutton related humiliation last weekend? During a friendly game of catchphrase I was casually reminded by a virtual stranger with a few too many shots of Wild Turkey in him that I was kicking the guy next to me’s ass AND that I was doing this in spite of the fact that I have “a totaly outie.” I was mortified.
