29 Weeks

Here's the latest of how I look now. In full maternity glory.
I went to a dinner party last night - all my closest friends were oohing and ahhing over my belly - gently touching it and making cute baby comments. As far as I can tell, Poopee is laying sideways - her bottom is on the right side of my belly (which pokes out occasionally when she stretches), and her head on my left side - which makes my belly appears much wider than usual.
Oh and I KNOW my butt look big in this photo. Apeman's been trying to get me to go to the beach with him, but I told him I ain't putting on a bikini because there is NO WAY I am showing my bare bits to the public. I am just a little self conscious about it and felt protective about my new body.

Just the other day, I dropped by a local pharmacy to check out their range of feeding products. It was a really hot day, and I was absolutely dying for a wee. I left the pharmacy and into the carpark, only to discover that some TOOL has parked right up against the driver's side of my 4WD. Initially I really gave it a good go to enter the car in various positions, but my belly was in the way so in the end I had to give up and waited for the other car owner to show up. And of course he/she never did. So I asked a bystander to reverse my car out of the spot for me so I can climb in. It was the first time I feel really clumsy and helpless.

I have 2.5 months to go. Apparently this is when the belly really grows - and I look big enough as it is!

Dear Drew, you look lovely!

That story about the car was quite funny to read about -- but I'm sure it was vexing to go through.

Your not that big really, but no matter what just think about what you will get when this is all over. Thats what I had to keep telling myself with all of my weight gain

Great picture, you look fabulous to me. I am a little nervous about the last trimester too. I'd say that I'm about the same size as you and if the belly gets much bigger I'm not going to be able to move!

your belly looks beautiful. did you at least pop a toothpick into the over-parker's key slot? you snap it off short and then push it in all the way. :)
