WHAT?

I can't already be almost 38 weeks. I swear, just 2 weeks ago I felt like I had forever to wait. Now all of a sudden I'm threatening her to stay in or she won't have anywhere to sleep and no clothes to wear. Not that I think she'll come early. After all, I'm one of those cursed women whose babies cling for dear life to the umbilical cord and decide that it's much easier to stay inside than come out. Taylor was 2 weeks overdue and Erik was 4 days late (and I only have modern medicine to thank for Erik not being any later than that...). People started telling me over a month ago that it looks like I'll go any day now. Thanks, everyone, for those comments that remind me how pregnant I really look, as if my lower back pain and 30 trips to the bathroom didn't do the job.

So for your viewing pleasure (or comic relief, whichever you prefer), here is a pic that Kent took of me today, six-pack abs and all. I considered posting the picture that I took at the same week when I was pregnant with Taylor. And then I remembered that my belly was un-covered. And the thought almost made me cough up vomit, so I thought I'd spare everyone else. You're welcome.
Keep in mind that the camera adds about 40 pounds or so...

Oh Steph, you are sooooo cute! You almost....ALMOST make me want to get pregnant again and have that cute belly. The problem is that it's never cute when you're the one with it! I can't believe she's almost here! I'm so excited for you! Really I just hope she has as much attitude as my girls have. You better post from the hospital or make Kent post pictures like ASAP after this girl enters the world! I'm not even kidding.

Yay!! You're so close! How exciting! You look just beautiful pregnant! Exactly how I imagined with the cute basketball tummy! Did you guys pick a name already?

ChristinaB said...

You look so beautiful!! I hope everything goes well with your little lady's arrival!

Jennifer said...

Wow! I can't believe you're that far already! Congrats! And you look amazing....just like you always did with the other two. Home stretch!!!

Kimberly said...

You look pretty good for being so pregnant! Not that it helps hearing that any; we're not the ones with back, lung, foot, leg, neck, and bladder pain. Did I cover it all? :P

I can't believe I'm going to miss another one of your babies! You, as always, look good too.

Freakin' lucky is what you are. I haven't been pregnant but I'm pretty sure I'll look no where near as hot as you do. Especially after already having two!

I must say I hate you! You look fabulous for being almost done!!! Just hang in there and enjoy some more ice cream and brownies while you still have the excuse!!!

Whatever Steph!!!! Umm, my butt gets as large as your belly! Plus you have the unfair advantage of your body bouncing back 2 minutes after you give birth!
I can't wait to see pictures of your little daughter- she is going to be gorgeous!

You look MAHHHVELOUS! What a great photo! Your daughter will love this someday =) How did you ever reach the sewing machine to whip out (Kim told me literally 15 minutes!) my cutest surprise baby gift? How DID you know I had been hyper-focusing on it? I couldn't let it go and was trying to figure out the best way to get one without forking over $50?

Wow, you're huge! congrats :)

P.S. I think an uncovered pregnant belly is not at all gross! I remember when my sister was pregnant she'd walk around proud of her big ande bare belly. My best friend here in Uruguay loves to show it off too.

Congrats again on the little girl steph!
