Update from California

July 19, 2008

I’m okay! I’ve been busy here and haven’t had a chance to get online until now. It’s been so nice to be able to spend time with my family and best friend. Everyone is getting ready for my baby shower right now, so the house is buzzing with activity.

The plane flight was uneventful, though completely uncomfortable and I am not really looking forward to the plane flight back home. I tried to stay well hydrated and think I did okay. I had several Braxton Hicks contractions, however, and that was a little unnerving, not to mention seriously uncomfortable.

Everyone here says that I “look small, but great”, and even though I still don’t know what exactly that means to people, I know it doesn’t mean anything bad. I guess I should just get used to hearing that, huh?

All I really care about is that our baby is growing and healthy and my fundal height is perfectly on schedule, according to my midwife during my most recent check-up, which was last Monday.

I’ll try and get any photos from my baby shower posted as soon as I get a chance. 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

Pregnancy should come with ear plugs.

I guess that is a nice compliment you are receiving there.Get used to it haha.When I was preggy I was as small as you are but then during the last few weeks of my pregnancy BOOM I went to 120 lbs lolz.

Enjoy your vacation and I can’t wait to see the photos of your baby shower!

Hi, found you on the ICLW list.

They are obviously just impressed by how stunningly beautiful and healthy you look. I am sure that was all that was meant by the thin thing. Actually, it was probably an insecurity thing based on their own issues from their pregnancy. You know?

You are lucky that you were able to lose the weight! Some of us can’t!
