No smiling pictures this week. My face accurately sums up how I’ve been feeling lately. I feel like I gained 10 more pounds, but the scale at the doctors claims I’ve stayed the same. Hmph. According to my due date there is only 17 more days left. We’ll see. I can’t believe she’s going to be here any day now. It’s such a surreal feeling. No really, I can’t grasp the reality of my little baby being here in my arms at any moment. It’s crazy. Wow wow wow. I’m sitting here with such a brain gap. There is no way I can find the words to describe how I feel about all this.  I’m just in shock or awe or something. Not very profound sounding… I’m sure, but really, I just don’t have the words. I am definitely looking forward to meeting her. And even though the ultrasound isn’t for good news on tuesday, I’m excited to catch another glimpse of her 🙂 After working Miami summers and seeing all the pregnant women I told myself when the time is right I would definitely plan a winter pregnancy…. but being an unplanned pregnancy and all, it didn’t work out that way! Not only did I have a summer pregnancy, but also, I got to be my largest during those South Florida summer months! Oh the joy! The upside is I get to enjoy the slightly more chilly Florida winter with my little girl! 🙂 I can’t wait. It’s almost time to say goodbye to 9 months of pregnancy! 


  1. My due date is the 29th! I wish I had some sexy Nike shorts right about now. My shorts stopped fitting about a week or two ago. I'm wearing dresses, which is fine, but most are a bit to short now so I look like a pregnant hooch. Oh well. 🙂

    &baby does need a monkey hat. Especially if its cold like last winter.

  2. I was a summer pregnancy too. Ayden was born sept 29th. that last month was literally hell. I remember the last 2 weeks of me be being preggos I was walking around in a wife beater, some very sexxxy NIKE gym shorts and pink sandals….I can't tell you how unattractive and trailer park-ish I probably looked to everyone but I was soooo comfy.

    I really love reading this blog. It brings back so many awesome memories of my little one while i was preggos with him….hard to believe they go from this itty bitty thing inside growing in your belly to a mini version of you!!
