Almost 39 Week picture

Or... maybe almost 38 Week picture... according to the measurements of the freaking gestational sac at 5 weeks. Why did I open my big mouth? They'd probably induce me on Friday if my due date was "officially" May 23rd in their records. I'm so so done this week. Up to last week I was feeling ok. I was thinking "Ehh, I should feel happy that my hips don't hurt as bad as they did a month and a half ago, my sciatic nerve only acts up every once in awhile lately, my back doesn't hurt, my neck doesn't hurt, my bra is halfway comfortable this time and Hudson isn't ripping my ribs apart like Porter was at this point."

Well... I spoke too soon. As once Monday hit I ended up with an upper backache that has been on the verge of giving me a migraine. And my legs feel like they're being ripped off at the joints. My inner thigh joints hurt SOOO bad. Especially when I am sleeping and I try to roll over. It nearly brings me to tears. I'm ready to be done... ready to have this little guy here so we can get things back to somewhat normal and focus on all this freaking house stuff. Ugh.

I have two more days of work (I decided, after we found out we're going to have to pay at our house closing) to work an additional week because at that point I was feeling pretty darn good. Now I feel like crap and I wish I'd taken the week off.

Anyhow... the point of this post. A picture. Because I haven't taken a side view belly picture since 24 weeks. Slacker!!

You look SO fantastic! And I wouldn't lie...if you didn't look so good I wouldn't have commented on the picture at all. Sorry that the pain hit you and I'm so pissed off about these due dates I can't tell you - I think they've made a HUGE mistake with mine...because I really BELIEVE it should be 2 weeks before it is.

i agree with cass... dang, you look SO good! wow. i did not look anywhere near that good at 38 (39?) weeks.

wow! you're belly is gorgeous! mine is always covered in big red stretch marks! you are a BEAUTIFUL momma! Those near-the-end-of-pregnancy pictures are always good for looking back on when you start to get the "itch" again, so you can remember exactly how much WORK it is to grow another one :) Can't wait to see his little face :)

You look so good- you are all baby ! And you make me NOT look forward to being uncomfortable in about 13 weeks... lucky you to get outta school in just 2 days!

Oh, I remember the feeling! Then right before going in to be induced I swear I felt like I could have ran a marathon! RIGHT!!
You do look gorgeous though! Be glad you took the pictures :)
