“You’ve got a belly on you! Are you pregnant?”

“Why yes sir, I am.  You have a larger belly than me, are you pregnant?”

… I didn’t actually respond that way, I was polite.  Sometimes people don’t think about the things they say.

One of my students asked me “what is going on with your belly?” 
Me: “Remember how I told you that I am going to have a baby?  It is growing in my belly.”
Student: “boy or girl?”
Me: boy
Student: “Oh good!  Boys are much better.  I have a little sister and she throws things, but I don’t think boys throw. I’m glad you are having a boy!”

I absolutely can’t believe that I am now 30 weeks pregnant?  It feels like 20 weeks just passed.  It is so exciting to think that in about 10 week our baby will be here!

We had an appointment yesterday and an ultrasound.  They made me so nervous!  We had the ultrasound, and the tech would not tell us the baby’s weight.  She said the doctor would tell us when we had our appointment.  We both were really worried for about an hour.  He is big, 75th percentile compared to average babies his age. They expect him to be over 8 lbs. by the time that he’s born!  I’m not sure if that is good or bad…

I finally hit my pre-pregnancy weight today, but obviously things have shifted around.  I sort of feel big already, and can’t believe that I’ll be getting bigger for 10 more weeks!  I had to stop running about 4 weeks ago since the baby was pressing on my nerve, and my leg hurt.  I still walk as much as I can, but around the 2 mile mark my nerve starts bothering me. 

I took these using the tripod and camera remote, so they are not the best.

Beautiful pictures Carly! Your story is funny too, it's surprising what people will say to you when you're pregnant. Enjoy the last 10 weeks, he will be here before you know it! :) Miss you!

Great shots! Cate was 8.5. B was 7 even. Felt the same to me. Recovery was equal. Don't worry!

You look great! Our doctor always told us Aidan was measuring big. He arrived the day after his due date and only weight 7 lbs 5 oz. I guess he just seemed big to them! I can't believe how fast your pregnancy has gone by! I'm only 11 weeks behind you. :) I'm really hoping you have a wonderful labor/delivery. It's an experience like no other... :)

I'm excited for you, I loved being pregnant, I delighted in caring for an infant. One of mine was over 8 pounds and I'm only 5'2", no problem.
