On a lighter note:

Anouther great quote:

"A friend of mine claims that after giving birth she can now hear her labia clapping together as she walks down the hall. And it's not in appreciation."

(Same book as below, on how your body changes after birth!)

Willing my placenta to move

Just a shout-out to all my friends & family that follow: I would really appreciate it if you could take a moment, mentally picture my placenta in my uterus (;)) and with the power of your mind, will it to move away from my cervix. Greatly appreciated, as I am hoping to avoid bed-rest, a c-section, historectomy and/or death.

Sorry: I'm hormonal and a little dramatic...

More belly pix...

Shocking and Horrifying News from the Doctor!

Brace yourself.

Doctor Fulford informed me of something today...

She said that before pregnancy she had size 6 feet. After pregnancy her feet had grown - permanently - to a size 8!!!

This could happen to me.

My beautiful, dainty size 7's could expand permanently to 8's or...9's!!!

What would happen to all my lovelies?? (My shoes)...

I will have to have A Great Shoe Sale.

...Good news for all you friends/family members with size 7's!
In the meantime I will wish and hope for a happy, healthy baby. And non-expansion of my pretty lil' tootsies!!

(No matter what, no one will ever get me Choos - I would sooner bronze them like a baby-bootie than sell them.)

Some New Belly Pix!! (Photographer: Me!!!)

Good quote...

"Pregnancy is like being in an airplane:
A little bit boring but not entirely unpleasant, and at least you get to sit down a lot. But if you really stopped to think about what was really happening under the bland surface of the ride, sheer terror would immobilize you. Luckily you get by with a feeling of general anxiety mixed with excitement as to what this new destination has in store for you."

...from one of my many pregnancy-themed books: The Mask of Motherhood by Susan Maushart
