Point A to Point B

What does a pregnant lady who has 20 days left in her pregnancy look like?

Like this.

What does she feel like?

Like this.

Notice the gaping group of people just staring at the beached whale? I get a lot of those these days. I think some of the looks are looks of sympathy but most are amazement that a woman could grow to such proportions and still be mobile. I know they think this because that's what I think of other women who have been in the same situation.

With three weeks left, I'm excited to get this whole idea of parenthood going. I'm a little sick of thinking about how I am going to take care of this baby and I am ready to start doing it. However, I know that before I can go from point A to point B, there is going to be a lot of pain but you know what? I don't care.

I'm not scared about labor or the pain from labor and maybe that's a rookie mistake but I think that's why God made pregnancy last so long; so that by the end, we are so beyond ready to have our baby that we don't care what is between point A and point B.

On another note, this weekend is my baby shower and I am so excited! I feel as if this is the last thing I really need to do in my pregnancy and then the baby can really come. So I will update again soon with pictures of my awesome baby shower with the awesome guests and the awesome games/decorations so that you can all just bask in the awesomeness of it all. Ciao.

Yay, Jess! Just try not to think about what you'll feel like when the epidural wears off!

Kidding ... kind of.

But that's what Percocet is for! Yay!!!

Oh give me a break. You look really good! And I'm sure you also smell waaaayyy better than that beached whale. You look really cute though!

I wish I could bask in the awesomeness of it all with you. I have the coolest shower gift for you, but I guess we will just have to wait. Won't be long now! The kids and I plan on heading out as soon as we get the phone call. We can't wait to meet Jack.
