3 days...

Wow, 3 days? Really? I guess one thing about being "retired" is you never know what the date is. I know what day of the week it is, but not the date...

One assignment we had in our Bradley class was to write down activities to do for the week prior and 2 weeks after our due date. It's to help keep your mind off just waiting, and plan for other things.

So, today's activity: have lunch with my former roomie! yea! I had lunch with a former roomie Teri who I lived with my sophomore and junior years at A&M. She just moved back to Austin and we hadn't seen each other in several years. And today was her birthday - so happy birthday my friend!

Then I also spent some time chatting with my friend Sharon and she gave me a bundle of cloth diapers. Yea! Pumpkin is getting all stocked up!

I forgot to post yesterday of this strange comment I got while in line at Rudy's. This woman commented that I was "huge" and must be having twins. When I told her it was just one, she said the baby had to be 10 pounds!! Can you believe it! I have only put on about 23 pounds this entire pregnancy! And that someone would tell a stranger that. And it wasn't that she didn't have children, she was holding a child. Oh please, no 10 pound baby for me! please...

Ry thought it was weird too that when we were at Starbucks yesterday, the cashier leaned over the counter to touch my belly! I should have at least gotten a free drink out of that!

I guess I should consider myself lucky. Haven't been stopped with the crazy birthing stories from strangers, or gotten many other pats on the belly. There is a full moon coming, maybe that's why people were acting so strange...

I really don't like when people touch my stomach... you can't really touch the baby, unless it's kicking, but even then... you have to touch *me* first. No one touches my stomach without a baby, so why is it ok to just go ahead and cop a feel when there's one in there? I know they have sweet intentions, but I don't like it :) (So, I don't do it to anybody else)

Full moon? Mark your calendar, that's when all mine appeared. That's no wives tale!! And, those weird, unsolicited comments? They are just preparation for what you will hear once you become a parent. Trust me!

My baby was born just before the full moon, then a month later her cousin was born on a full moon.

Alexis, I think you look fabulous and you'll have a perfect little 8 pound baby boy ;) Haha!!! How's that for a silly comment.
