He says I'm huge...

Mr. CE says I'm huge and this week I would have to agree. My skin is so tight it hurts when I bend at the waist now. I'm a balloon that is ready to pop.



Currently as I type I am 36.6 weeks along.



I can't believe my pregnancy is almost over. It seem just like yesterday on that bitter January evening that I darted into Walgreens and ducked out of there with 2 tests. I felt foolish. Foolish that I really thought I was pregnant and that I would only have wasted another $20 on tests that were surely going to come up negative. Because that is how it always happened. Until we made Miss E, it was a good new years after all....

2009! Who knew I would spend the majority of it pregnant. Not I!



So this week has been full of swollen ankles, trips to the bathroom every half hour, painful muscle pulls on my upper abdomen, the beginning of sleepless nights and the continuation of Miss E's rocking pouch party.


Week 37 here we come and our first "dilation check" on Monday as well. I wanted her to bake longer, but I now have to say that I am ready to see her. Just the other morning dad touched my belly andasked, "Is that her butt?" and then continued to squeeze ever so cutely while repeating "baby butt, baby butt, baby butt" all while having a cute daddy grin. At that moment, I was ready for her to come, so not only I can see her, but so I can see her with daddy and big brother too.

I can't wait to hear her name..
I keep trying to think of all the crazy E names that wouldnt get the best reaction and i'm coming up with nothin!
I remember this stage so well.. you want them to be safe and warm but you want to hold them so badly..
you know how hard its going to be once they are actually here, but at the same time you can't wait to experiance that...

What does he know? You look beautiful! Tell him next time, (if there is one) he can have the baby. He is pretty cute though with the "baby butt".

Oh my goodness! What an exciting story to tell her when she's older. Those kind of unexpected surprises are the BEST! Unless of course you're in a really crummy situation and can't adequately care for a little one.

Just think your bladder will be back to normal in no time!! ;)
