Large Marge

There is a large baby growing in my belly.  I honestly have no idea where she is going to go... I don't have wide enough hips for her to hide in (for which I'm grateful, even if it means discomfort for the next 2 months).  I will probably be pretty scary looking by the end.  At least, my mother seems to think so, since she is always saying how huge I am right now.

I don't have much to share.  I haven't done any walking for a couple of weeks.  And I don't really care.  We've been busy getting the house in order, having mid-week date nights and attending our labor classes at the hospital.  And it has been a lot of fun.

So I'll leave you with another maternity photo.  I'm obsessed with them.

I Hate Needles

*Copying this exact same post from my personal blog - just to keep you peeps informed.  It's one of the reasons that I haven't posted in over a week.*

You see this?
I recently had a date with one of these for a core biopsy. I wanted to cry/scream/barf/pass out/cry.

Do you know how scary it is to find a lump? Well, I'll tell you... it's really scary.

But the good news is that it is benign.

30 Weeks and Counting...

I have nothing to report when it comes to exercising/running.  I'm "taking a break"... just because of the fact that I'm exhausted when I get home from work (what the heck am I so tired from?  reading blogs and playing Farmville on Facebook?).  I plan to start walking again next week.  The weather is FINALLY cooling off and I plan to take full advantage of it.

In other news, I have only 10 weeks until my due date.  We cleaned out the baby's room and over the long weekend set up the crib and dresser.  I like to walk into that room every day now and just look at it. 

AND!  I finally bought an outfit for the baby.  We had been getting lots of clothes from people (especially the grandmas), but I wanted to buy at least ONE outfit for my little girl (yes, I realize that I will be buying clothes for her for the next 20+ years, but I wanted to get something in the teeny, tiny baby size).  So I bought a cute little layette set that she will, most likely, come home from the hospital in.  November can't come soon enough, and with the way this pregnancy has gone for me, it will be here before I know it.  I can't wait!

Better Than a Kick in the Pants

Today is the last day of the challenge from Tall Mom to go 80 miles in August.

Uh... I didn't make it.  As a matter of fact, I sucked it up royally.

But it was good motivation to get me off the couch 10 times during the month. 

And 10 is better than 0.
