Because My Pregnant (Still!) Brain Can't Be Bothered to Stick With Just One Subject...

First things first. Barring anything crazy, like my stubborn ass kid-to-be deciding to flip over like most other good little babies have already done by now, or the Turtle deciding to make an early entrance, her/his birthday will be May 18th via c-section. I'm pretty sure. There is a small possibility that the kid will be born on May 21st, but I'm hoping and hoping that the surgeon will be able to do it on the 18th. I'll receive confirmation of that next Wednesday. Among other, very sensible reasons, like the fact that then Zube Boy would have an additional weekend to spend with us without having to take vacation time, I think a Taurus kid would blend a little better with my Cancer and Zube Boy's Pisces than a Gemini. But, you know, I really just want the kid to be healthy. That's all.

My god-daughter/niece? Is totally a Zube.



Check out her little hand. Hee. She's a wondermous foul-handed little cutie, that one. And I totally can't believe that MY brother, whom I used to raise bloody hell with is a Daddy. It's bizarre. And I'm sure he's probably going to be thinking the same about me. We have already determined that we're in for it when our kids are teenagers. You know, retribution and all.

I was talking to My Belle the other day, and we got around to the subject of pregnant bellybuttons. And how weird they are. And we were both surprised to learn that neither of us had outies, but rather, flatties. As in, no longer cavernous lint collecters. I sent her a picture of mine over e-mail and she called me and told me it looked weird...



I got all, WHATEVER, dude, I bet yours looks weird, too, on her ass. So, she sent me a picture of hers...



And together we determined that they both look...very weird.

On that note...holy shit. There's the very likely possibility we'll have a baby in just two weeks and two days. My head is spinning.

Rachel said...

Wow! And, ouch. I know it isn't painful but... It's amazing what the body can accommodate. We are all sending you "orbs of light"!!

Amy said...

I am SOOO freaking happy for you! And, I think your belly button looks WAY better than those strange outtie buttons do. Mine did the same thing I didn't have an outtie, thank goodness!!!

Oh, that is so wonderful. Just two more weeks. And your Turtle will have a cousin close to his/her age. Perfect.

Dink said...

Heh. Just wait. Mine was a flatty too until about the last week...

Then it pops out, just like those timer thingys on turkeys. :)

If it pops out, will you post pictures?

Crazy Lady in Vegas said...

Your bellies are just too cool!

Mamma Mia said...

I agree with Dink mine popped out once she was done bakeing... good luck to you!!!! Please post pictures as soon as you can!

What a lovely round belly! I think May 18 is a lovely birthday, as it's my mom's. (and, uhh, lets me be lazy on mother's day presents.) You just have to ignore the Mt St Helens connection. :)

Interesting. I've never seen a belly that pregnant before. I like them.

Come on, give us a couple more posts before the baby comes, you know you want to. Besides, once the baby comes, you won't know how to talk about it! It's just too overwhelming. You are going to have what you have wanted for sooo long, congratulations.
