Yes I'm Still Here and No I Haven't Had the Baby Yet
Those words have seriously come out of my mouth more times than I can tell you in the last couple of weeks. And in person, not over the phone. People act as though I should have had her by now, even though I'm technically not due until September 10th. I don't understand that at all. I'm not trying to be mean or crappy about it but come on! Don't they say 40 weeks for a reason?? I know there are a lot of women out there that are really glad to see a pregnancy end, and don't get me wrong, I am EXTREMELY excited to meet this new little life, but I am not one of them. G and I struggled for so long to get pregnant the first time that I cherished every minute of my pregnancy with Aiden. This time just seems like a huge bonus and I have no idea if I'm gonna get a 3rd time around so why in the world wouldn't I enjoy every minute I have with Olivia as a part of me?
Okay, I know I'm sounding all preachy about this but really, these comments and questions do get old. If I have her there will be phone calls made and people will be told. There isn't going to be anyone left out of the loop or shocked to see me show up at church one day holding a newborn. That's all I have to say about that. Oh and thank you for letting me vent about something so trivial.
On a different note, has anyone ever tried to take a picture of their ankles? No? Am I the only one? The only reason I ask is because it's really, really HARD to do. I was wanting to take a picture of my ankles right now because I actually do still have them. Sometimes at the end of a very long day my ankles are a bit puffy but otherwise they're still bony and there, which I consider to be one heck of an accomplishment given the 90ºF days (plus humidity!!) we've been having around here. I tried to take a picture this morning but they just look weird and hard to see. Oh well. At least I know they're still there right?
