That is the $64,000 question and my answer is "I have no earthly idea." None. Nada. Zip.
My doctor's appointment today didn't reveal much, either. I have gained 19.5 lbs and am still sporting no stretchmarks. Although, oddly enough, the few I got on my hips from gaining weight after quitting the cigs are showing up a little more. Weird. I still swear it is the flaxseed oil because I can't figure out for the life of me why I would get stretch marks on my hips from a weight gain, but not ANY on my big ole baby belly that has been stretched to the very max not once, but TWICE now.
So, we did schedule for me to be induced on Monday, July9th. If Anjali doesn't show the whites of her eyes by then, I will be waddling my fat ass to the hospital bright n' early Monday morning to get the process started. I am not excited about being induced and do hope that she comes on her own naturally. However, in the end, all I care about is that I have a healthy baby.
In meantime, I am knitting a storm, backing up computer files and editing video footage that has been lingering for 6 months. I wish I could have a baby twice a year - think of how much I could get done with all this nesting shit going on!
So, MLE of Pantolones del Fuego fame is zipping through Kansas City with Hulk on her way to meet Eek! - we are going to meet for breakfast tomorrow and I am very excited. I've always claimed to not be too vain -I love a good shampoo and an expensive handbag, but all my Real Life friends can attest that I don't garner much fashionable results with either since I can't give up my penchant for cheap shoes, drugstore makeup and my hatred for a hairdryer. However, I think this meeting PROVES the lack of vanity on my part. Seriously - I am just about 8 lbs shy of my heaviest weight EVER, yet am still willing to meet someone for the first time?
Finally, I am so jealous that MLE is roadtripping, that I dedicated today's BoobLog post to it - I am taking a break from the "All Boobies, All the Time" format and am just posting about me this week. Today, I posted about my undying love for roadtrips. Fascinating, I KNOW.
