33 Weeks: Livin' Large

Oh, my my. I am quite the pregnant person. In the last week, I've heard many comments confirming this fact. "You're due February 1st? Because you're really big already" is my personal favorite.

As Juno so adequately put it "the only thing in your stomach is taco bell" so everyone needs to step off - I'm creating a miracle and I need some space to work.

Anyway, these fun pictures are from a holiday dinner with some friends at Diane and John's place on Sunday. It was a really good time and Ed and John had fun plotting ways to send me into early labor in advance of January 1st so we could secure a tax break for the year.

Of course, Diane then made me promise to do everything I can to avoid giving birth early since they will be traveling at Christmas and in the early part of January. LOL

32 Weeks: Prep for Childbirth

From 10a - 5p on Saturday, ET and I were at Prep for Childbirth. We arrived starry-eyed and full of wonder (well full of lattes, anyway) and left tired and grumpy. He was annoyed at the ineptitude of our instructor. I was annoyed at the ineptitude of our fellow classmates. So, we badmouthed all of them all the way home. Like "this little piggy" but with hormones.

Seriously, we did learn a lot and I think it was a good class to attend and I'm glad we went... and I'm equally glad that it's over.

My Review of Back & Belly Contoured Body Pillow

Originally submitted at Toys R Us

Back & Belly's inner contours are designed to follow the natural curved shape of your body. With it's clever design there is no need to reposition during the night, simply turn from side to side. Provides equal support for back and tummy. Removable, washable cover.

I may not kill my husband...

Pros: Soft, Comfortable, Strong Seams, Good Support

Best Uses: Prenatal, Bedroom

Describe Yourself: First Time Parent

...because I am well-rested!! This pillow rocks the house. I was unable to sleep comfortably on my side without getting a bad crick in my neck and shoulder. I kept waking up and could never find a comfortable spot, until this pillow! I am 32 weeks pregnant now and feeling really uncomfortable. But, this pillow understands my needs.

Others commented that there is no room for husbands in bed with them when using this. That's true. But, mine left for the couch back in the second trimester when the first body pillow showed up. I miss him. It's a good thing I have this pillow to keep my company.
