No, I'm not holding a big red exercise ball - that's my tummy. I can't believe we only have 10 more weeks till our due date. I'm actually not in any hurry to have the baby, I'm pretty content with him all nice and snuggly in there. Maybe I will feel different in a couple more months. At the beginning of the pregnancy, 10 weeks seemed like forever, now it is going so fast. 9 weeks of school left till spring break....woohoo!! It also seems like lots of weekends between now and then are going to be busy with something or another too. I also finally found someone to sub for me, so that is a big relief to be able to check that off my list. I have been getting so much done at school lately, lots of it I normally wouldn't do ahead of time like this - it's been great--I decided maybe I should go on maternity leave every year...

I am really enjoying being pregnant and love to feel the baby kicking and squirming. He is usually most active when I am not. I'm not sleeping all that well because of lots of hip pains, but other than that everything is great. I am thinking about ditching the bed for our big fluffy bean bag chair. Brian is busy with basketball season but still managing to be a wonderful husband...he did laundry this weekend and even brought me flowers for no reason. Such a lucky girl, I know. I also REALLY enjoyed getting out with some girlfriends on Friday night to watch Bride Wars and buying some baby and maternity clothes. I'd better take advantage of getting out of the house for dinners and movies and shopping (and eating!!) while I can!

So I was just going through some pictures on our new laptop....

This is me in early October.

And this is me now, the weekend before Christmas.

Any questions?

I mean, WHOA. The belly has taken on a life of it's own (literally!)...and I still have 3 more months! I'm just sayin'.... Will I be able to stand upright without tipping over in the next few months? Seems like I'm hungry....quite often... Regardless, I know the end result will all be worth it.
