thirty-eight weeks and ready to pop!
I am officially full-term. I have made it thirty-eight weeks pregnant. Twenty-two of those thirty-eight weeks have been spent abstaining from fats. This has been a long journey, but a much more delightful one than I spent a couple of years ago while pregnant with Pear. Although it's been hard sacrificing my one true love -dessert, I think I can do this again if we are blessed with more children in the future. Hey, look at the bright side: I won't have much weight to lose after Jovie comes! For those of you who don't get to see me on a regular basis, I have actually gotten big this time. People still never guess that I'm due any day but at least they know I'm pregnant! I've also gained a whopping fifteen pounds this time. Hurray! Here's a picture of me at thirty-eight weeks.
