And here's a pic of my right now:

I am ready for this baby to come. Come on Muffin! I'm shooting for October 25th now. LOL. We'll see how that goes...

I'm 37 weeks tomorrow and couldn't agree more. I am so so so tired of my huge ungainly belly, my ugly maternity jeans, and the fact that I can't really reach my toes.

Public bathroom stalls are the absolute worst. Ugh! How in the world does one manage not to fall into the toilet while exiting those things??

Thanks for the complement mamma...I am not feeling so beautiful right now. But oddly DH has been making more "you're pretty" comments the past few days than ever before, which makes me wonder. Either a) he is starting to really feel the stress of not DTD in a while, b) someone said something to him about how low I've been feeling, or c) I can't think of a c.

I look forward to wearing normal clothes again. I expect it will be a little while, though, since this is baby no. 3 for me.

I feel the same way. We were looking through old pics on the computer and I saw pics of me from March and I felt sad cuz I miss my skinny body and I'm just so uncomfortable now!

My waist hasn't been that tiny since puberty but I feel your pain!

DH came into the bathroom last night and said "How big have your thighs gotten!" Thanks hon, you really know how to make your wife feel good about herself. Especially since she only gained 17lbs this time and not 39!

Nerdy, imagine a bathroom stall with a toilet only a foot from the floor!!!! Thats what I had to contend with at the Children's Museum the other day!

Your wonderful husbands attitude may very well be a combination! My DH has this way of knowing when I'm feeling down, and he tries to cheer me up. He also probably thinks you are beautiful growing that darling baby of yours! His feels probably aren't just one thing. Partners can be pretty perceptive .

Someday we'll have some semblance of a waist again, or at least be able to bend over without something hard getting in the way.

I know... not even really in the mirror now, ever since the LO dropped.

A friend I knew from HS is on Facebook. I emailed him and he'd love to see a picture of me. He's been teasing me that he can't recall who I am without a picture, even though I know he does. I have flat out refused to send him one of me preggo and honestly, I don't think I have another picture from the last 8 years where I'm not on a horse wearing a helmet. He's been joking about that it can't be THAT bad, but I'm pretty sure I look nothing like I did at 14-18!
