I finally decided just to go with a photo booth picture, double chin and all :). Plus there’s a long story behind this shirt. I tend to win a lot of contests, and I entered a few for a maternity brand that was promoting on a bunch of blogs this spring. I won a $50 gift certificate in May, which it took them til August to send (after sending my address twice and tweeting them more than once). When they finally sent a gift code, they removed everything from the clearance section of their website for a few weeks, which meant that nothing was below $50. They finally put things back on clearance in September, but then it was a little warm for this 3/4 length shirt, and when I wore it today it’s too short and I had to pull it down all day long! It may be getting close to muu-muu time.
I had a really nice baby shower on Sunday afternoon, so hopefully I’ll get some pictures to post here soon. We’re pretty well set for what we need – I started ordering the practical things like diapers on Tuesday so the boxes will be piling by the door now.
At my doctor’s appointment on Tuesday I was 34 weeks 4 days but measured 35 weeks – it’s only a couple days, but I’ll take it (except that my other assumption besides going late is that I’ll have a big baby, so maybe that’s what measuring big is about). No other signs of early labor, though – just a few braxton hicks and the desire for frequent naps. My pelvis hurts when I walk sometimes, too, but nothing too bad.
We’re carving pumpkins tomorrow – when I bought them today I resisted the urge to crack a joke about smuggling one under my shirt.
