meg007-- that's funny about the checkout girl. i was in walmart last night and had to ask a woman working the floor something, i was waiting as she was finishing with another customer...and her first words to me where "you look ready to pop!" :)
nosce---your comment on sex had me . i've got to say, it sounds like you're dh is at least creative! i told my dh, if i were him and i weren't getting any sex, i'd at least get creative at trying...but he seems to just be waiting on the day that i'll jump back into it with much creativity on his part! ha! on a serious note, i'm glad he read what you wanted him to....my dh isn't a reader either...and so i've just flat out told him anything i want him to know, otherwise, there's no hope i'll find him sitting down reading any of my birth books! that's okay though, i know he'll be fine...he did great when i needed him in our miscarriages and our pregnancy! i just have to communicate clearly, which i still seem to be capable of in that opening zone!
jenne--the chocolate chip cookies sounded great...oh yeah, and the movie too!
mcs-- i agree it's nice to have chatty, chatty! i woke up at 2 and couldn't sleep, so it's nice to be able to get online and have something to read from friends! and on clothes... i wore a pair of leggings the other day with a shirt instead of a long dress/shirt. well, my turtleneck shirt was warmer and i needed more warmth than the dress/shirts provided (thin cotton)...dh started laughing when he saw me. but then he assured me that he thought i was cute. i really couldn't tell if he thought i looked like a rolly polly, or if he thought i look like a lovely birthing goddess..but i didn't change, i asked him one more time later and he still said i looked good, so i let it drop! and at some point he said we should buy you some more of those (it's the weather for leggings and boots at the moment). i said no thanks, i've only got max 2 months left, i don't want to buy something now! but because i feel so different, it's kind of hard to judge...i hate being one of those women who asks her dh if her butt looks big, but i really couldn't tell! of course it'd be natural if it did, as i'm 33 weeks pregnant, but still..i don't know the need to still be myself is important! in the end, i felt quite comfortable in what i had on...so it stayed. i guess that's what's my deciding factor...
btw, had our 33 week appointment and we got our birth supply list from the midwife...seems to make it more real. her cut-off date for early delivery is 36 weeks, so we're almost there, and of course i'm thinking we'll go late...but it's good to know we're about to cross another non-existent but real threshold! birthdays are coming!!!
