Now where did I put that basketball?

Okay, so really I'm not as huge as this photo makes me look, but I thought it was a hilarious photo. I must scare short people.

I scheduled my last 2 prenatal visits today so that means it's really almost over. I've gained 13.4 pounds to date, which my doctor just commented on today. "That's great! All baby!" I didn't have the heart to tell her that it was also chocolate chip cookies, chocolate pie and mini donuts.

I forgot to have Craig take a photo today so this is from last week. I only gained 1.4 pounds this week so I imagine this is similar to what I look like this week too. Sheesh I hope it stays warm out now (finally 70 today again) so I don't have to wear those too-short long sleeve shirts. Sorry about the belly hangage.

Look at that hair. Stylish, no? Okay, so NOT. Are perms totally out of style? I think I might like to get some wave to my hair after the baby arrives (well, a few weeks later). Or is that sooo not cool? I liked my shorter do with the flippies on the ends for a while, until my daughter burned herself on my curling iron. So now I'm not fond of curling irons either.

Standard falling asleep time for me these days? Oh, about 2:30-3 a.m. Niiiiiiice.

Makes me feel really patient.

17 more days...17 more days...17 more days.

Yeah, then I'll be a different exhausted. But it's all worth it, right? RIGHT?

That picture is fantastic. I honestly wish I had more belly pictures from both my pregnancies.

I bet a perm could be great!

You're hilarious. And yes, I'm sure it will all be worth it. :)

You look gorgeous!
I would wait till the baby comes, then take an hour to ourself and get your hair cut!

You look very pretty - those final weeks of pregnancy are just no FUN, are they?

Alex Elliot said...

You look terrific!

Hang in there it's almost over (I mean out). Perms are ok if you like them. You have to make your own style. What are you comfortable with?? What do you think you look good with?? Ya know!!

I have no pregnant pictures of me!! I'm so jealous of all your belly shots.

Your hair: Splurge and pamper yourself on a great amazing haricutt. Find a place where there are lots of pretty women and stalk them... and then ask them who cuts their hair!! (Just kidding... but could work.)
And schedule an appointment.
I think... you just need some light, long layers to give yourself some oomph... but experts will know. You'll need easy maintenance after the baby comes.

I'm jealous that you don't have any visible stretch marks in that picture! :) Lucky you! That photo will be fun to look back on when it's all over with.

Hang in there!

I LOVE that top photo!

I feel I should warn you of something as the mother of a May 22 child. Something I didn't know when she was born...

May 22 is right on the edge between Taurus and Gemini. What does that mean? It means a bull headed, dual personality child. Giant mood swings. Wheee!
