Tic-Toc, Tic-Toc.... Slow Down

Wow!  Today I was looking at my little pregnancy ticker on my blog and it says I have only 63 days until my due date!  So, I realize that is only BARELY over two months.  Then, I get an email from a fellow blogger congratulating me on only having NINE weeks left!  What?!  Seriously, that sounds even shorter to me.  I think that really woke me up!  Tic-Toc, tic-toc, ... the clock is seriously ticking away.  I want to slow it down some.

Yep, you heard me right.  I want to stay right here with my big round belly a little longer.  Now, don't qoute me on that at 40 weeks when I can't reach my toes.  ;)  And don't look at the strange facial expressions I always seem to make in pictures.... I have mini-photographers here and they do not wait on the perfect look.  ;)  I figure if I don't just suck it up and post a pic you will never know what I look like at all.  I must say I love how my floors don't look nearly as dirty in a snapshot as they do in real life... maybe I mopped that day.  Anyhow.... So, this is me with two months (or NINE weeks) to go.  I am only barely 5'3", so every bit of pregnancy shows on me.  There is no hiding my obvious condition even early on.  And aside from the rude comments from passersby I really do not ever want to hide it.  I love having a big round baby belly.  And right now I am sitting here feeling that little body roll around inside me.  I just felt of some little part, which I can never figure out... maybe it is an arm or the bottom of a foot... maybe a knee... I don't know, but I know that as I felt it, rubbing it with my fingers that the little one inside is feeling me feeling of her and there is just nothing more precious than being the only one to experience that.  And right now I can feel her pushing into the right side of my pelvis.  Seriously, I have to move sometimes when she does that because it is so uncomfortable... not painful... just that I have to move to give her some room to move.  And if that clock keeps ticking away so fast all this is going to be over way to soon! 


  1. WOW!! I can't believe how fast time is flying. Two months is not that long. Crazy.

  2. You look great!...crazy facial expression and all! I am the same way with pictures ;) LOL!

  3. Aww preggo bellies are so cute! I'm excited for you. You're making all mushy and sentimental here thinking about playing footsie with baby inside. Sweet moments!
