My Bellies Going to get Big

36 1/2 weeks "my BIG nose"

So here I am now just counting away the last remaining days until baby is here. I've had my baby shower (got everything I needed) my hospital bag is pretty much packed an waiting by the door, I am all finish my prenatal classes, read all of my 4 pregnancy books from front to back and filled all the pre-admission paper work out at the hospital. I've got nothing more to do to prepare for baby's arrival. So now I just wait!!

It's funny how people try and make you feel better but only end up making you feel worse. The other day a friend was trying to tell me that she thought I looked really good and that I didn't look like I put on much weight, then she says "until I saw a picture of you taken last Sept, boy do you ever look different. Your face has gotten rounder even your nose has gotten bigger!!" Then the next day one of my new friends (we meet this January) says " I saw your wedding picture and I had no idea that you USE to be hot! " Well if that wasn't a back handed compliment I don't know what is. An a couple of days after that this lady I bearly know asks me how much I've gained. An since am not shy about it ( why should I be ) I tell her 43 pounds. Well she goes on and on about how obviously I haven't gained it all in the belly because she can clearly see that. You know I wasn't going to say it before, because I am not mean like that. But seriously what made that pleasantly plumb short lady think she had the right to say that to me. At least am pregnant what was her excuse.

People have been predicting that am going to have this baby early. An I think that too, but only because baby has always been a week or two ahead in the weight gain and measure department. Also my doctor is on holidays the last two weeks of April and Adam is out of town April 28th. So I am thinking with my luck she'll decided end of April is as good a time as any to make her BIG debut. My due date is May 9th if anyone is trying to recall.

So three more weeks left of work and then am on maternity leave for 6 months. I can hardly wait to hangout with my little baby. On the other hand however I am going to miss my dream job. I am a Nanny for a little one year old named Sierra and she's such a doll. When watching Sierra successful accomplish each milestone I think to myself, in exactly one year from now my little girl is going to be doing this too ( walking, talking, showing me attitude) I can hardly wait for all the good and bad.
