Week 25: “Your Boobs are Huge!”

I love my friends dearly because they keep me checked into reality. We had a fun night out with some friends the other night and this was the first thing out of one of their mouths. Hysterical! (I then filled them in on the boob issue…) We had a good time wandering the streets of Lodo, I undoubtedly being the only preggo in the bars! It was quite amusing to see just how much my life has changed from the “bar hopping” days. Don’t get me wrong I still love to go out and have a good time but it was very interesting to see versions of myself prancing and dancing around the bars almost like I’d gone back in a time warp. It made me realize how happy I am at where I have landed in life.

The average person still doesn’t quite realize that I’m pregnant, especially in the right outfit. At the golf course recently we had a conversation with the starter about only playing 9 holes, the starter would rather we play 18 and I told him that this was fine as long as we had a cart… while grabbing my belly I said “I guess I can manage 5 hours IF we have a cart!” Well a few minutes later the starter comes out to inform us “not to worry” he has paired us with another “beginner” couple so we should be ok. Shaun looked at him puzzled saying ‘she’s really pretty good, she got a hole in one in Februrary…” It turns out that the starter thought we only wanted to play 9 holes because we were beginners! When I informed him it was because I was pregnant he looked at my belly and said REALLY?? OH! And was very concerned about making sure I didn’t hit any bumps while driving the cart. It was all pretty amusing. But that’s the truth, the belly is still little, people’s jaws drop when I tell them I’m 6 ½ mos pregnant… It usually starts with the “when are you due” question and I say Thanksgiving and they start counting on their hands and look at me with wonder…

I am getting very excited about the baby shower coming up! It is 3 weeks away now and I am giddy thinking about it. It’s kind of like another wedding event, something to look forward to, fun with family and friends, I LOVE it! My mother in law and sister’s in law are throwing it for the hubby and I. Yes, we are doing a co-ed shower! The whole high tea, cookies, and women gossiping thing isn’t exactly my style so bring on the boys, they add a completely different dimension to the occasion. Men and babies, you have no choice but to have fun! The shower will be held Labor Day weekend, fitting of course…

I can’t believe that I’m almost onto the third trimester… Hubbs was a little freaked out when they started talking about pre-term labor signs at our appointment… it’s slowly sinking in that this little guy is coming full speed ahead!! Ahh I can’t wait to have him home in his crib!!
