Party Day

I went to a birthday party and a baby shower (not for me) yesterday. When I got both of the invitations a few weeks ago and saw they were for March 29th, I laughed a little, thinking, I'll get a present, but I probably won't be able to go! Well, I went alright. Big ol' belly and all, to both parties, then thinking to myself, maybe after all this excitement I'll go into labor. Nope, didn't happen, friends. Just lots of questions and comments of "When are you due?" "You're still around, huh?" "You still haven't popped that thing out?" "Wow, your feet are really swollen!" And my all time favorite "You look so miserable." Wow, really? Thank you so much!

At the baby shower for my friend Alisha who is about 35 weeks along.

And I will subject myself to it all again as I go to church this morning. I really do love our church and am soooo thankful for all the people that love us so much... but I asked Paul if I could go incognito today, just to go unnoticed and avoid all the comments/questioning. He suggested I get one of those pairs of eyeglasses with the big nose and mustache attached. Think that will work? ;)

*By the way... I have an ultrasound/nonstress test and dr.'s appointment tomorrow. Will update afterward... and hopefully, even if we don't actually get to hold our baby by tomorrow I'll at least have a new ultrasound picture of him!*

Did the disguise work? I'm thinking probably not - your face is not what sticks out to most people anymore (no pun intended).

You'd think people would realize not to make comments like that?? Who actually tells someone they look miserable?? Geeze...

I know what your going through though. One man kept asking me "are you sure it's not twins?" I said yes, and then he asked me again, "are you sure?" Uhhh...yeah I'm sure..I'm just overdue...I laughed but really wanted to smack him. LOL.
