Belly Watch: 36 Weeks

by verdemama on April 28, 2011

Okay, so I’m technically still a day away from the official 36 week mark, but I just so happened to have five extra seconds today to snap a photo of myself and I figured I should probably take advantage of it.

So. I’m thisclose to being 36 weeks, and some days I feel great, and others I feel like a narcoleptic beached whale. Everywhere I go, people are still commenting on how I look — mostly of the “You poor thing. You look like you’re ready to explode” variety, but I’ve really stopped caring. You’re right, people, I DO feel ready to explode. I’ve gained 33 pounds. My belly skin is all stretched out and itchy, I officially waddle, and I haven’t been able to gracefully bend over to pick dropped things off the ground for many weeks.

(Plus, Orion was born at 37 weeks, so it’s blowing my mind a little to think I could have a newborn in a matter of days — although I don’t think the same scenario will play out again this time.)

It’s all starting to feel very real to me. And you know what? I think I’m ready.

I am not looking forward to the comments!! When I saw you a couple weeks ago I thought you looked cute (and not about the explode!) I am hoping cuz I am tall maybe I wont get super big and wont get the comments? – I guess that is probably a pipe dream, but one can hope right?

I wish you the best of luck with that, Cat! Consider yourself lucky if you’re able to escape the constant commentary. :)

So with you mama. It's a day by day struggle. Last night I was up for four hours wondering if the crampy weirdness I was experiencing was real or fake labor… I guess it was fake cause all is calm this morning. Boo. I am so ready to have this baby. You look fabulous and I can't wait to celebrate your little girl's arrival!

When it’s real, you will know! Trust me. :)

I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for your little man to arrive, too!
