The Belly

38 weeks

almost 40 weeks

When I look at these pictures, I can see now why I've gotten so many comments in the past few weeks about my belly.
Here are some that I've heard:
Woah, are you growing a linebacker in there?
Have you been thieving watermelons?
Did you swallow a bowling ball?
Wow, I haven't seen a profile like that in a long time!
Are you sure you're not having twins?
And then from 3 different 2 year olds, as they look up at me they have all pointed and said said..."Ball?"

I am feeling quite large at this point, and quite ready to meet this little guy and kiss these feet that keep poking out my left side. I am feeling really well though. Having lots of Braxton Hicks, and just waiting for them to turn into real labor. I have high hopes that this labor will go as well and fast as Livi's, but I'm trying to keep an open mind for the way it turns out.

Hopefully in the next couple of days we'll be able to post some news about our boy. :-)

"The Lord gives strength to his people, the Lord blesses his people with peace." Psalm 29:11

This is so exciting. You look fantastic. Isn't it amazing how much our bodies can expand? I know you can hardly wait (and your Mom, too). I'll be praying for you.

This may be your most RANDOM comment ever, but I googled Family Fun foamerator and followed a link to your blog. I was captured by the family pic on your blog header BECAUSE my husband and I were just on the central coast of California, and I think that's the Bixby bridge in your photo. Yes? That is a gorgeous, magical place!


Michelle said...

Meredith - Thanks for your comment! You are right, that is the Bixby bridge....we went camping in Big Sur last year and it was so much fun. I can't believe we get to live in such a beautiful place. So....did you realize that I know Angie from Flibbertigibberish? That's why I was surprised that you found me thru the foamerator search and not thru her blog....that's so funny!

Michelle! Congrats on your sweet new baby!

I've gotten to know Angie and I LOVE her. She and her family are so sweet. I'm going to follow your blog and read all about your fabulous life in CA. I'd move there in a minute if I even thought God was hinting at it!

Hope you're adjusting to life with three. Blessings,
