34 weeks

First time in a while that I left my OB's office NOT crying.

Good sign. :)

I am usually so frustrated and upset about something they did or didn't do.

Nice, uneventful visit this time. No bed rest threats. Nothing bad at all.

All looks good. Baby is growing fine. Looking like they are going to induce me in my 39th week seeing as the longer you're pregnant the greater chance of getting pre-eclampsia. (My OB likened this period of time in my pregnancy to feeling like I "have an anvil over my head". Hadn't thought of it that way. Thanks! Very calming.)

Induction is totally fine with me. Although, experiencing going into labor might be kind of cool/exciting (I got induced with Ella, too). So, hopefully, barring a breech induced c-section, we're all done being pregnant sometime between August 5th and August 11th.

I am huge. No joke. See pics below. So happy (sarcasm) to run into someone I haven't seen in over 6 years today that I went to college and high school with....I was like, come on....I am a whale. Do I have to run into people I haven't seen in forever looking this way?? Apparently so.

Yep. Still vain even 8.5 months pregnant. Yay me. :)

Mike and E last night. Heading to the "mac and cheese one" aka "Taco Mac".

2 things...
1-who did you run into? the only person i can think of is that baseball player (i can't remember his name)
2-do you know the paint color that is on your hall walls? i love it - nice neutral, but enough of a contrast with the white trim to make it not look white. that is what i was going for in my hall, and mine is too light for my taste.
and - you are NOT huge! the only thing huge is your belly -t he rest of you looks amazing. stop it.

I swear to you I am just as big and a month behind. I told someone with a 25 month old that I felt big and she said, "no you're not. Not yet." Excellent.

You look awesome! All belly! Very cute picture of you and Ella.

You look great! Miss seeing you at the gym. We'll be back next week. Can't wait to meet little baby "soon to have a name" :)

Don't know if you'll believe me, but you do not look big at all. You look like you have a pregnant belly on a thin body. Like one of the models they use!
In fact, you're looking way better than most pregnant woman do (yours truly included.)
