37 weeks and baby's still hangin' out in her little amniotic hot tub :-)
David was able to get some much-needed time off of work and take me on a nice little vacation to Sedona! We had SUCH a nice time! We got a really nice cabin for a very good price and also brought our own food for breakfasts / lunch to save money - making it possible for us to go out for one nice meal each day we were there (3 days). Sedona and Flagstaff are both very tourist-ey, so we spent most of our time just walking around the towns and checking out every little shop they had (and buying pretty much nothing lol). However we turned out to be AVID samplers when it came to fudge shops and bakeries. Lol gotta love those free samples....
We got (as usual) every kind of comment you can imagine from people on the street regarding my baby-belly. After three days of it, David was like "NOW I see what you mean about getting so many comments!! It does get old!"
At the fudge shop, sampling fudge, I looked down and said "Rats, look at that, my belly just caught my crumbs." To which a rather large older man replied, pointing at his big ole' belly, "Got the same problem here, sweetie..."
Passing a vendor advertising helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon, the sales-lady let us know that "babies LOVE helicopter rides!!!" *wink wink* yeah, no, we didn't fall for her sales pitch lol.
Getting an iced mocha at a coffee shop, the coffee lady working there, after exclaiming at how "cute" and "perfect" my bump was (WHY does it feel like neither, I'd like to know lol), said, "Now, you'll want a DECAFF of course, right?" Nooooooo thank you. This mama needs her caffeine please! *Official bad mom award for caffienating my un-born child*
Got told by another sweet lady that I "don't even look pregnant, just looks like you have a little beer belly going on." A beer belly. Oh thanks.
Literally every place we passed by, someone asked 1) when are you due (followed by look of shock), 2) is it a boy or a girl, 3) is this your first, 4) do you have a name (followed by a look of totally-not-impressed-with-THAT-name), 5) and are you excited (duh).
Perhaps I'm being too negative but when you get 20 comments a day like this it can really get old lol!
Ah, the joys of pregnancy :-)
Well at least I only have a few weeks left. And then it shall begin: a lifetime of being told by others what we are doing wrong as parents and "oh my gosh you aren't REALLY doing THAT are you?!" type of comments.
Here on the home-front however, things are going well and I'm just nesting away, getting last minute things organized, washed, and packed!! It could be any time!! My next projects to get done before Elenna gets here is to make and freeze mini pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, sync my ipod with a labor playlist, bleach the bathroom shower curtain liner, wash the windows and blinds, and re-organize the kitchen cabinets. Oh, and probably one last really good pedicure :-)
