8 months and growing...

Yes, that bump is growing!

I've been feeling so good that I hardly notice the bump until I look down...

 or see my reflection...

 or notice strangers going out of their way to help. I'm so distracted at chasing Augustine around that I don't have time to realize it. It was funny, today when I pulled Augustine out of his swing at the park, his boots fell off and a lady sitting nearby rushed over to help pick up his shoe. I was so surprised at her reaction... as I quickly thanked her and said I was fine, while crouching down with Augustine sitting on my knees as I balanced to put on his boots. It was only after I saw my reflection in the windows at the library that I realized how pregnant I look and how obvious it is to people! Duh!

When I was pregnant with Augustine it was the exact opposite. I wanted people to have sympathy on me, so bad, because I was in such excruciating pain and I felt so so so uncomfortable!! I wanted everyone to walk really slow with me or, heck, just carry me! I longed for closer parking spots and reflected on getting a "handicap sign" for my car. I felt like crying if I had to get off the couch and walk across the room. I'm not being a baby, I was really in THAT much pain. I can't thank God enough for the blessing of this pregnancy and how great I feel!

My 8 month check-up went smoothly, and baby is in position and I am measuring perfect. All is good. I've gained 16lbs so far which, despite my ever growing bump, seems low for me. I'm happy. We are healthy. All is really great!
