A few random things

~ Baby has the hiccups. It used to be that I wasn't sure what they were, especially since they were all really low, but now it's making my tummy twitch and it makes me giggle.

~ My belly is still B shaped. I'm pretty sure it's going to stay that way until I deliver unless Baby decides to turn. She must have a big noggin.

~ Was told by a co-worker yesterday that I was waddling. I related this to another coworker and she said, "You've been waddling for awhile." Gee, thanks. lol

~ I miss DH. It seems silly that after being together for 7 1/2 years I still miss him every day when I go to work or when I'm not with him, but it's true. I just love spending as much time with him as possible.

~ Just signed up for a free three-month trial of Blockbuster online. Yay for movies in the mail when we have a newborn!

~ Went swimming on Monday. It was nice. Too bad DH and I have lost our gym cards and they hassle us about them every time we go in there. Otherwise I would go every single day just to float around. We're planning on cancelling the gym membership when baby comes and replacement cards are $20 way are we spending that kind of money for new cards for another month!

~ Overwhelmed with the thoughts about baby being breech. I know I shouldn't dwell on it so much, but I do. I feel like my body is failing me and doing something wrong and I'm now obsessed with being able to give birth to this baby the way nature intended. It seems silly and it's not that there's anything wrong with a C section. I spent those months while TTC feeling like my body was damaged and I'm struggling with the same feelings now. DH tries to reassure me that it must not be too damaged because I've grown a healthy baby girl in there for 8 months now. My argument is that we really don't know if she's healthy or not at this point... I've been so ashamed of how my body has looked while pregnant (because it's so lumpy) that I just doubt its abilities anymore. Consequently, it's hard to look at pregnant women who have the "perfect" rounded belly...and always assume their babies are head-down as well. Just a lot of insecurity on my part, obviously.

~ I get to see high school friends this weekend for one person's wedding. I'm really looking forward to it, but not looking forward to being away from my home for two nights.

~ I still generally feel fantastic (knock on wood). I was just telling DH yesterday how incredibly much I'm going to miss being pregnant and feeling Baby moving around inside me. Even with all of my body image issues, I have loved being pregnant.

~ Showers 1-3 (one for each side of my family plus a work one) are complete. Thank you notes for the work one and most of the first family shower are done. Just one more with friends to go--I'm super excited about that one. It may be small, but it'll be fun!

Oh, the hiccups. They are so weird. He has them right now. I'll definitely miss that.

I know I haven't seen you in a while, but I bet your belly is not as B shaped as you think (or lumpy!). You were a very cute pregnant lady last time I saw you, and I doubt that's changed. Also, the thing that gets me now is ladies with perfectly round bellies AND boobs. I wear sports bras around the house so much, and they flatten whatever I've got up there, so it's like a straight ski jump down to my belly. I look like an old man with a beer gut. :)

I'm so glad you're still feeling good, too.

Netflix was awesome when Violet was first born. :) And the DVR. We never had these things when Ruby was born and we missed a ton of great movies and tv shows. LOL

Sounds like so much excitment! It's awesome, even if the baby is breach it through nothing you could have changed, just have a stubborn baby out the gate! Hehe at least you know what to expect right? :)
Hope it stays easy and comfortable for you!

The hiccups sound like so much fun to experience. I'm glad to hear you are still enjoying it all.
