Here is a due date belly pic I took last night w/my phone. DH was going to take some but we didn't get around to it. I'm sure we'll have more chances this wknd.
I'm actually more comfortable today than I was earlier in the wk. Fewer aches & pains, belly is calmer. I definitely feel lower and more out-there. I love being at work and having people ask me when I'm due and telling them with a big smile, "Yesterday!" Their eyes get big and they act like I'm some kind of superhero or freak of nature. It cracks me up. Honestly if I didn't feel well I'd be at home, but I am fine, truly.
I just found out that I'm going to get some supplemental pay for grant work I did for a prof who isn't my boss. I figured on a little OT for it but it appears I'm going to get a lot more than expected! We were dreaming of getting a Phil & Ted's dual stroller and now that's going to be easily covered and then some. Bonus!
Helina, that's great news on the stroller!! Yay!
You look fab girl!
And YAY on the stroller- that is great news!
You look great Helina!
I was looking forward to doing the ol' due date scare on people. Alas, it didn't happen. Enjoy it for me!
Looking great, Helina! Glad to hear that you had some progress!
Since a still-working post-dates preggo gets to eat whatever she wants, I picked up a pizza & hot wings for dinner on my way home. (DH's suggestion but it sounded good.) I asked for the hottest wings they had. "Nuclear? Awesome!" said the girl on the phone. That should've been my warning.
O.M.G. They were so ridiculously hot! I only ate 2. By the second one my eyes were streaming tears. Mom and DH were cracking up and making jokes how they should take a pic, and then the next pic in the album would be me holding the newborn. My intestines are not yet distressed but I'll keep you posted.
DH is busy writing the last paper of his baccalaureate career! It's due tomorrow at noon; graduation day is 2wks away. And yes, I tried to get him to see the wisdom in doing it BEFORE I was due...just in case I went into labor he wouldn't exactly have time to write a 10pg paper comparing and contrasting David & Jesus (it's a course on the Bible.) Oh well, looks like he'll make it. *phew* So I give myself permission to go into labor after it's been submitted. I should probably go pack my bag.
Woohoo, permission is granted lo! Do you hear that???
Mmm, hot wings sound good, but not that hot! And pizza, mmm I think I need to eat
