So I'm now down to the single digits ... only 9 days til my due date! Crazy how time flies. Today was a sad day. I got my first stretch marks :( Totally happened overnight. Not big ones or anything, (though I assume they'll just increase until I deliver) but I'm still pretty sad. I was starting to assume I was going to be one of the lucky ones and not get any, but I guess it's all part of the motherhood initiation. I suppose my belly must have finally reached its limit of hugeness. Oh well. Bring on the lotion!
Otherwise pregnancy is fine. Uncomfortable and sometimes a bit boring, but just fine. I'm excited to not be so huge anymore, to be able to sit up in bed without having to first employ several tricky maneuvers, and also to eventually go running! Meeting our little boy will undoubtedly be the highlight of no-longer being pregnant, but for right now it's still very surreal!
