38 weeks

38 weeks, holy crap! So by request of Ms. Skylee I took a bare belly picture this week.  It is crazy to see the bump from this point of view, it looks massive, just how I feel.
As you can see my innie belly button is still hanging on!  I think it may make it too.  I am also pleased to say that no stretch marks have made their appearance thus far, so I am hoping that means I will get to avoid them.  So I am feel large, sore and very tired.  All I want to do is sleep.  I think my body is slowly started to prepare for evicting this kid.  Because of my over tiredness, some nausea coming back, lower back cramps (that sometimes decide to be a contraction), achy hips and boobs, a recent flare up of acne, and the recent increase in bowel movements.  All signs point to eviction!  But I know that these symptoms can last for a couple weeks before anything truly happens, so only time will tell.
I am really close to finishing school items, just a few more things to do, which is good.  All things baby related are good and done, so no more errands on that part.
Just trying to enjoy that last few moments of not being a parent, I think we are going to have a pizza and ice cream party with some friends this weekend.  We are really trying to be social now, since we know that is going to come to a screeching halt very soon.  So I will update on the pizza later.


  1. Wow -- the belly does look huge when seen bare! As it should at this point. I can hardly believe there are less than 2 weeks to go to the due date! Good for you for being almost done with your school work. Keep us posted on whether the innie pops out or not. :)
