I only have one pair of over the belly pants and they drive me bonkers!!! Maybe the issue is that I have a long torso??? So they've NEVER come all the way up my belly (even when I bought them at 24-ish weeks). I just feel like I'm forever adjusting them and they never stay up. The worst!

I can't wear the low stuff AT ALL. Baby is low and I have a shorter torso. It cuts in and feels uncomfortable and has done that for every pregnancy. I didn't even buy any this time around and just picked up the full-panel pants. The full panel pants are much better made than they were 9 years ago. They actually stay up because they are tapered, where my hand-me-down stuff I remember using before that got past back to me from my former neighbor just falls off me.
I met a friend for brunch at Care Flora near the UW arboretum. I haven't been there in years! I found it amusing that I didn't know how to get there by car, but had to instead follow the bike route through the arboretum. I miss cycling in Seattle. It's such a bike accessible town.
The shower was fun. It was mostly family and only a few friends. I got to hold my former neighbor's baby boy. I'm really looking forward to holding one of my own. :)
It was a really nice day, but the drive home over the pass was a little scary. It started snowing hard 20 miles below the pass. I really hate driving over when it's dark and snowing. With the big flakes, it looks like you're driving through the warp speed scene of a space movie. And, I had my daughter in the car, so it is even scarier to worry about her. I've done it a lot more than I'd like to admit over the years going back and forth for work. I take it slow, however, It's the other drivers that speed by in their little sedans or muscles cars that really worry me more than anything else. I witnessed one "not-so-smart" driver come to a screeching halt for no reason that I could see and then he got stuck in the snow and blocked one of the two lanes that was plowed. The 2 Subarus immediately behind him slowed down and then started spinning their tires, also getting stuck and stopped. I got by them and called 911 for all of them once I saw a mile marker. They had all gotten out of the car, which is so dumb. It's dark. It's icy. They had their young kids standing next the car on an icy interstate. They would have been much safer inside still strapped into their car seats.
