Stick a Fork in me

Because I'm DONE.
If one more person clearly points out that I'm only 38 weeks I may hit them. Yes, 38 weeks is technically early, but when your first baby comes at 38 weeks naturally, one normally assumes your second will be early too.
Also if someone else looks at me and my enormous belly and says "still no baby??" like they cant tell I haven't given birth... I may just slap them too.
AND while I'm ranting, to the lady at work who asked me once again "are you sure your butt hasnt gotten bigger?" I have already told you that is very rude to say, why would you say it again?
If you can't tell, IM READY!
Here is the only 38 week picture I plan to take, and my mom forced me to do this one on Easter. I'm not really feeling so photogenic... you know ''Big Butt" and all.

How Far Along? 38 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Unfortunately yes, it got cold again this week so I have had to squeeze my big butt into my pants again.

Weight Gain? 24-25 lbs? no idea we don't own a scale

Stretch Marks? One. Hoping I dont add to it.

Gender? Boy

Sleep? What's that?

Food Cravings? watermelon, sushi

What I Miss? Not having a big butt

Symptoms? sexy cankles, false labor, groin pain that makes it impossible to do anything but waddle and shuffle my feet to walk. I am a true joy to read about, no?

Belly Button? outish

Best Moment of the Week? Finally finishing the nursery. I hope to share photos once we get the computer hooked back up in the basement.
Keating has been quite helpful in the nursery decorating department. He is also quite curious about all of the baby toys that he doesn't remember, particularly the bumbo. He will sit in it and then get mad that he can't get out. He's a pretty funny kid. A few nights ago, he knocked on our bedroom door at 2:30am. When I got up to see why he was out of bed, he told me that he wanted to eat cake. What the heck? No clue where he gets this stuff. We didn't even have cake in our house. This kid says the darndest things.
Well I will spare everyone with more of my complaining, but hopefully in the next few days I'll be back with a new baby to report!


  1. You look adorable - people are just annoying! Hope your little one comes soon :)

  2. I stumbled on your blog through Its a Wonderful Life and i love checking in! I am also preggo at 33wks and have been getting the same LOVELY remarks as you, except for the butt one which is completley rude! Good luck and I hope the little one comes soon!

  3. You are looking great! Hang in there - you are so close!

  4. Archer needs to get the memo to come out and join the party. =) I'm sorry you're over it, I hope he comes soon!

  5. Some people can be sooo over the line. You are beautiful! and I know he will come soon :) 38 weeks isn't that early.

  6. Thinking of you during this time! Best wishes for an awesome delivery.

  7. What the heck?! I am sure you do NOT have a big butt, and I can't believe that woman would ask you that.

    I hope this little guy gets here FAST! Thinking of you!

  8. Are you kidding me? You look FANTASTIC! But for your mental sake, I do hope Little A comes soon!

  9. That woman = total a$$! You look so amazing!

  10. I think you look absolutely beautiful, so tell that lady to can it! Sending good vibes for a safe and speedy delivery. Enjoy!

  11. Ugh, people are so rude! I had a coworker who kept asking me if I was SURE I wasn't having twins. And she told me at like 32 weeks that she wasn't even that big when she gave birth to her kids!

  12. I am her mother and I promise you she does not have a big butt! And compared to other women who are this far along she isnt huge pregnant either! I would love to pop this woman between the eyes! You are beautiful!!!!

  13. Haha! I remember those "sweet" comments. As if we (the one carrying the child) are not suffering enough!

    I am very envious of your small weight gain. I gained 50 lbs with both my boys. You're almost there!!!

  14. you look AMAZING. i will totally drive up and slap someone for you =)

    also, cake at 2:30 am? i'm with keating...sounds AWESOME.

  15. Those last few weeks were awful for me too!!! I hated waiting and getting unsolicited advice from everyone... Hang in there babe-- you're almost to the finish line!!

  16. You are adorable :-) no big butt a far as I can tell!!

  17. Hi there, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  18. Okay, well, I've know you since you were like 12 years old and you did not then, nor now EVER have anything resembling a big butt!! You look beautiful and I'm glad your mom made you take that Easter picture.. you will cherish it one day! I know you are more than ready to not be pregnant anymore... those last days are so hard. I am continuing to pray that you have an easy, safe delivery and that Archer will be in your arms SOON! Hugs!

  19. You are giving a great feel love to see you with baby bump



I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments!
