Public Humiliation is Good For You



I got my eight year old to snap a photo to preserve a view of the current girth I'm carrying around. The camera adds 50 lbs, right?

The night before last I had a lot of contractions, but they never got all that painful, so I kept my 8:30 morning appointment with the doctor. Sadly and much to my disappointment, those contractions had done absolutely nothing. I had been up most of the night and even woken up my husband, and all for nothing.

After the doctor's visit, I went and walked around a great park not far from our house and then pretty much napped most of the rest of the day. Last night, I didn't have any contractions and I haven't had much of any today. Today, I ran all the errands I could think of that needed to get done -- Lowes, Sam's Club, and the grocery store. I feel like I walked almost the whole day, but no signs that a baby is planning to show up any time soon.

So that, if you are wondering, is where things stand on Baby Watch 2008.

Your baby belly may be big, but look at those skinny arms and thighs. I almost can't believe you're the mother of 5!!!

You are all baby belly (she says with envy) - but you do look like it must be getting uncomfortable. Hopefully the baby decides it is time quickly!
