Almost there

Yikes!  I am actually posting a photo of myself with the proud baby belly.  With anywhere from hours to days until we meet our new baby, we are anxiously over analyzing every movement and new feeling in anticipation! I am currently enjoying  fully giving into my instincts - if I feel like crawling around on the floor, or going for a walk, or taking a bath in the middle of the day, well that's what I'm going to do!

I am constantly entertained with our culture's perception of very pregnant women.  I found this especially true when I was pregnant with the twins and was even larger than I am currently.  First off is the inevitable comments: 'what are you doing out of the house,' 'when's that going down?' and then there are the constant guesses on the gender based on the height I'm carrying the baby.  Of course there is the belly touching and the personal questions about labor, pregnancy and children that are deemed completely normal for public discussion.

For now I am reveling in the last few days of pregnancy and looking forward to those first moments with our newborn!
