Today is August 28th.

The Franklet is due October 28th.

This means the Franklet is due TWO MONTHS FROM TODAY.

I am extatic.

I am anxious.

I am nervous.

I am ready to hold my little girl.

I am sick of being pregnant. (I have been pregnant since it was very, very cold outside, summer is almost over, and it is almost time to be very, very cold again. Thus, I have been pregnant for a very, very long time.)

I am ready to stop looking at the scale and watching the numbers go up, and up and up.

I am ready for people to stop saying super inappropriate things like...
"You are HUGE!"
"You look like you're about ready to give birth any day"
"You are tiny, there's no way the baby will be born in October"
And my personal favorite....
"I hope motherhood is all it's cracked up to be. But I'm guessing it's not."

If you're looking for comments to make to pregnant people, here are some good ones that they will appreciate...
"You look really nice today"
"That's such a great shirt, it really looks nice on you"
"You have looked really fashionable and nice throughout your pregnancy"
"You really look healthy and happy"
"You're going to be a wonderful Mom"

Two months from today. I cannot wait. 

Thought I would leave you with a picture of me and two of the pregnant girlfriends. We took this last night after an early Birthday celebration for me. An early Birthday celebration where the topic du jour was bodily functions during labor. Oh how times have changed.

I just happened to look at this pic again, and the funny thing that I notice...........look left of Kara and the word 'bar' is there.

3 preggo's in front of the bar! hhhhhmmmmm I've heard beer is good for lactation, but I think that's AFTER the baby is born!
