Getting Ready and Denial

I'm pretty huge.  Really.

I was really big with Joey and am definitely bigger now, although I've gained 15 lbs LESS this pregnancy.  Crazy huh.  I just happen to be one of those women  who get a GIANT belly.  I can still wear exactly my same jeans, if I button them below the belly (don't worry people, I don't do that!).  Maybe it's because they were both boys, or something.  Who knows?  
Anyway, I think I've been about 38 weeks pregnant for 3 months, at least I've looked that way.  When I told people, 3 months ago, that I had that much time left, they looked at me in shock and said inappropriate things (all you ladies with kids know what I mean), but now when I tell people that I am due in a week and a half, everyone nods understandingly and says something like "you must be ready!".  

See the funny thing is, I was ready 3 months ago.  Now, I need every second of those 11 days I have left.  EVERY SECOND.  I am in total denial about baby deadline.  

Joey's labor started with alot of bleeding and a huge contraction in the middle of the night when I got up to go the bathroom.  So when 2 nights I woke up with alot of tightness and cramping in my belly and needed to go to the bathroom..... I did what any self-respecting procrastinator would do.  I pretended I did not have to go to the bathroom and I didn't feel anything, and I went back to sleep.  whew.  Luckily for me, I didn't feel anything when I woke up a few hours later (except a much more violent urge to pee!).  

So folks, that's where we are right now, 11 days from due date.  At least some of us are getting ready.....

Yep, still works.

As far as I am concerned, I know this little guy will come when he comes and I can't wait to meet him. If it wasn't for 11 more days, I certainly won't be sitting around twiddling my thumbs either though ;-)

Wow, I was just thinking about you the other day, that you must not have much time left at all. Can't wait to hear news of the little one's arrival!
