37 Weeks, just want to lie down...
Tired of seeing me being pregnant? Me too.
Today I hit 37 weeks and had another appointment at the hospital. My doctor says I'm already measuring 40 weeks ("At least you're consistent," she said. "Well, consistently ahead of where you should be.")
The ultrasound shows Kickbaby weighing about 7lb 5oz so far – although at this late stage the measurements should be taken with a grain of salt. He still has ample time to relax in there and get fat(ter), but I'm being optimistic and hoping he might end up in the 7-8lb range.
I'm down to rotating three reasonably presentable maternity shirts and one not-so-fabulous tshirt, and two pairs of pants. Jenny McCarthy confessed that she resorted to wearing only a muu-muu in the last months of her pregnancy. Officially I'd be appalled at myself for doing that; unofficially, it sounds sooo comfortable. It's lucky I have my pride.
Tomorrow is May 1. Tomorrow when people ask me, "When is that baby due?" I'll finally be able to say, "This month!"
Maybe then they won't shake their heads and look at me funny...
