I have failed my mother

Oh... HEY!  How's your life? How's my life?? Oh... you know.... How am I supposed to answer the question of "how are you" anyways?  Exhausted.  Grumpy.  Fat.  Impatient.  Hungry.  nauseated.  cramps? contractions? sore everywhere.  Lazy.    Do you really want to know? Or should I stick with my normal reply DOING GREAT!! Its what they like to hear at school.... they like to be reassured I'm coming in tomorrow ;)

But Baby J and I are progressing.. in lots of ways.  Here we are at 35 weeks.  Some people say things like "oh.. you are so small for 38 weeks" and other people say "oh boy I don't think you can pop out any more"... I think that I agree with the second

I honestly look at my belly and think how on earth did I stretch that much???

Baby room has progressed!! Ta da! Looking good right?? 

 I have progressed from a list of what to bring to the hospital to a pile of some things that are coming with us AND a list.  That's as good as it gets right? Because everything else is last minute things and I'm definitely not wanting to put it all in a bag and take it out everyday for the next 3 weeks.. belch... because we all know I'm going over right??

More progression to 37 weeks! Can you tell that my belly bands no longer go all the way?? Hah

Progression??? WELL it might not look like it.. but it is! Woody and I wanted to paint the dresser so he painted it for us on his day off!! SO even though the room is looking less finished it's actually more finished... we are pretty tricksy like that

WOW. What a foot... I made the picture smaller for you because who wants a foot in their face?! BUT check out that indent? Sweet huh??? The joys of parent teacher conferences...

AND more progression to 38 weeks.  My cheeks have progressed to the point that a fish face is more attractive than a smile... I've always had chubby cheeks and they just seem to want to really shine now!

And in case you are wondering how I have failed my mother, the above picture gives you a hint... Let's take a walk down memory lane to explain:

Once upon a time I was in high school.  And I decided that I no longer cared about getting ready in the morning so I wore sweats EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Not cute ones either. I looked pretty grungy... people were worried.

Especially my mom. 

So for Christmas that year, she bought me lots of cute, fitting, matching sweat outfits.  And I happily wore those from then on.

SO every now and then I go back to my old ways and not really get dressed, and wear boy sweats and my poor mom just shakes her head and thinks, "what happened to my child?" "where did I go wrong?" "why can't she just dress cute????"

BUT I have really failed at this point in my pregnancy.  The only sweats that fit nicely are... WOODY'S.  And as I am sure you can imagine they don't like fabulous on me.  Also my favorite shirts at the time... WOODY'S.  I seriously don't get dressed on the weekends and I wish I could get away with wearing sweats to school..

if I could, I would.

So I'm sorry mom.  But I have made my way back to boy sweats.

I'm that pregnant woman.

You know the one you see in the store and you think... Really? really? You think it's ok to wear that in public?

Yes people, I really think it's OK

Ok.. I don't think it is, but I just don't care anymore


  1. Sugar, I haven't been pregnant for 10 years and if I could wear pajamas EVERYWHERE, EVERY day, I would. Wear those boy sweats with pride!

  2. When I was pregnant I would always wear Kyle's gym shorts and his t shirts. It is okay not to care anymore. Go Amy! Go! Go J! Go! You can do it!!

  3. Of course it's okay to wear the most comfiest thing when you're pregnant!! And be glad the weather cold and sweats still feel least it's not boiling hot summer and you just want to wear NOTHING.
    I'm so excited for you guys!!! You can make it through this last bit, you will rock labor and be an amazing mommy!!
