No, that's not my belly. But isn't it cute? I know some people aren't fond of the pregnant silhouette, but I think it's soooo beautiful. Too bad I won't be sporting the tummy much longer...
Too bad? What am I talking about?! I am so excited to meet this baby! And if all goes as planned I'll be holding my little one in my arms by early this week. I'm being induced on Tuesday morning, and though I'm not thrilled about having an induction, I've accepted that with my history (and the blood-thinning injections I've been giving myself for the past nine months) I don't have much of a choice. So pitocin it is. Oh joy. However, I have been having some very strong (and rather regular) contractions all weekend, so maybe I'll still get my wish and go into labor naturally. Wouldn't that be fun? I'll be praying this baby decides to fool the doctors.
Anyway, as you can imagine, my mind is elsewhere these days. So I'm going to be taking a break from blogging for... oh, I don't know... however long it takes for me to get over the I-don't-want-to-do-anything-but-stare-at-my-baby stage. I'll pop in to let you know the good news, but don't expect any long, thought-provoking posts in the next little while. More likely, you'll receive a random, sappy ode to my wee one that was written in tears on the keyboard. Darn hormones.
While I'm gone, blessings to you! Enjoy the dog days of summer... Drink lemonade, let your kids play in the sprinkler, read a cheap paperback that lets you leave your brain on a shelf, and soak up these amazing July days. They'll be over in a flash.
Hugs to all!
