Is that a basketball in your pocket or are you just 38 weeks pregnant?

Yes, it looks like I'm trying to smuggle a giant basketball around everywhere I go. This little lady (or obviously giant lady) is riding low and ready to come out! Okay, maybe she's taking her sweet ass time, but I'm sure ready! ;)
I've officially gained 40 pounds! I was hoping to keep it between 35-40 so I'm right where I planned on being. I'm not big on exercise (it took 11 months to loose the baby weight from my son because it came off naturally...I never worked out!) so I'm curious to see how long it takes my body to bounce back this time around. Who has time to work out when you are busy running around raising kids? Well, who has time during the first few months anyway! I'm sure after the bean hits the 6 months mark (and summer will be coming up) I'll find a gym with a day care just to get some cardio in. Maybe! ;)
Anyway, like I said I'm feeling ready to go. Lots of nights waking up to contractions, I feel hiccups so low down it scares me, more trips to the bathroom any one person should make in a single day, lots of excitement and anticipation on meeting her, you know....the normal home stretch feelings!

She better hurry up, I'm feeling the itch to put my Christmas tree up and it's not even November yet! Curse you nesting (raises fist and shakes it in the air)!!

I think you look fabulous!! You dont look pregnant, you just look like you have a bball under your dress, which by the way is HUGE compliment!!! ;)
I know that you are ready to go and I hope she comes soon for your sake and that you have a very easy, fast delivery!

Also, I love it that you dont like the gym! Neither do I! I knew I liked you for a reason!!!!

Yay! I just delivered three months ago and I'm still not up to speed with the workouts. Enjoy your last few days and have a beautiful birth!

I'm with you, I hate working out. I gained 40 pounds with my daughter too and it took me a year for it to all come off by itself. Good luck this time around!

A woman contacted my work from this company called, "Happy Mama Gifts" and I took the liberty of browing around her website and oh my gosh! I saw this and immediately thought of you.

You can bet that whenever it comes time for me to have babies that I'll be scooping up one of those. The idea is absolutely genius.

Where did you get that shirt, I am preggers too, and I would love to get it.

The top is from Pea in the Pod. I got it when I was pregnant with my son 3 years ago, but I'm sure then have a similar style there still.
