I’m carrying a Watermelon!

According the the baby websites my little BIG one is the size of a watermelon!  If the predictions based on the ultrasounds are correct he should be about 6.5 lbs!  I’ve been getting really big, really quickly lately!  Dylan asked me this weekend why everyone we see asks me about being pregnant.  It’s because they can clearly tell that I am.  I know I should be tired of being so big, but it has been exciting these past few weeks to really look pregnant.

I have no idea how much this watermelon weighs, but I have to believe that my baby is smaller than this oversized piece of fruit.  My mom knocks on watermelons to pick the best, I just go for the biggest! 
Dylan found a cap on a bottle of Bolthouse Farms juice with the due date of our baby!  I know, it’s only exciting to us!

Ninja Daddy

My back was hurting, so I got out the Moby Wrap to try and hold a heating pad onto my back.  It did not go well.  I could not figure out how to make it work!  After reading the instructions, Dylan figured it out, and tried it with one of the baby’s stuffed animals.

Doesn't he look cute?  I tired it after him, and it sort of worked, but definitely didn’t look as good as Dylan’s attempt.  Hope that I can figure it out before the baby arrives!

Until then the baby will have to be carried by his baby-wearing ninja daddy.

33 week belly pictures

For the longest time people would tell me how small I looked compared to how far along I am. At about 33 weeks that stopped, and strangers that did not know me finally were able to tell that I was really pregnant.  Dylan even commented that I finally look pregnant.  (That’s what good husbands say when they mean that you are fat.)  It seems like every time I look down my belly is larger.

I’ll be honest, I don’t really mind too much.  It’s sort of nice to finally be obviously pregnant.  I was a little worried before when people would tell me how small I was.  I as worried that there was something wrong with the baby.  He’s still doing great, and measuring a week ahead like he has been pretty much the whole time. He still moves all day and all night. He does not seem to like the fetal position, and prefers to stretch out.  I’ve actually been feeling really good thanks to weekly visits to the chiropractor.  I am slightly more tired, but have not had many of the other 3rd trimester symptoms moms often complain of.  I actually felt much worse during my first trimester than I do now.

I’m actually at 35 1/2 weeks now, but I’ve been busy working on the yearbook for my school.  Today I sent it to the printers!!  Now I actually have time, so that’s why you are just seeing the 33 week pictures!  I am actually still wearing my regular clothes, about once a week I’ll wear something maternity.  Today I tried maternity pants, and I’m not a fan.  I hate the whole belly panel, but when I roll them down they don’t stay up. I think I’ll just stick with my regular pants until I can’t wear them anymore.  (All of the pictures here are wearing regular clothes.)  I still have a mini stash of maternity clothes in the closet with tags.  I guess I thought that I’d be much bigger than I am… not complaining, just staying. 

Maybe we’ll take more pictures this week since he’s growing quickly these days!
