Hopefully everything calms down, and no more pre-e worries.
This is my second time doing it this pregnancy. Something tells me I have at least one more go of it too, before this little one comes out. Mom's intuition and all.

Nice picture MP!
Oh yea, the fridge. I *could* put it in a cooler with ice. But then I'd have to change the water. And there is NO way I'm wiping off a soaking wet container of pee. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
Baby and toddler pee--whatever. Full on grown up pee, including mine? Ew. Ew. Ew.

My manager will cry a bit, but ah well. Everyone will deal. And I feel much better today knowing I only have to do 3 more before I can just chill out.
Ahhhhh. No more flaky temp. No more irate clients. No more broken applications. Ahhhh.
Happy you get to basically tell everyone to bugger off! Let the countdown begin!
Maeryn, that's an AWESOME pic. I am amazed though that you have enough of an indent on your belly button to hold the earphone there. Mine is getting waaaaaaay too shallow. I never 'popped' with ds, but this time around.......
And now, I must scream this from the rooftops: I am DONE peeing in a bucket!!!! WOOOOOT!!!! Now to just drop off that container. Please let the ride there be smooth.
I agree with Kelly. I think people have this idealized view of what a 'heavily' pregnant woman should look like. I mean, all the models in the magazines are usually only 7 mos along and like, 5'11''! It's only a short period of time when most women have that cute but proportionate bump, kwim? Unless a woman is really tall, the last month-ish, she starts looking uncomfortably 'big'. You know, cuz there's a FULL SIZE baby in there. I mean, why else would we be having problems breathing, moving around or even eating if, near the end, the baby didn't start taking up precious room? Sometimes people just don't think.
