Half baked!

We had trunk or treating at church this evening and this was my costume

Get it? That's my half-baked bun in the oven there. It was appropriate because today is my "bump" day. I am officially in the home stretch (the long......long.... l-o-n-g home stretch). Whohooo!

This is what I can say about the first half of pregnancy:

1. It pretty much sucked
2. No it really sucked
3. As awful as it was, I suppose it could have been worse.
4. But it's over now
5. And I feel great.
6. When I say I feel great I mean that I feel almost normal. (Or maybe I have just forgotten what normal feels like. Compared to how I felt-I feel AWESOME.)
7. I have lots of energy, I don't have to sleep a lot anymore and I work out pretty hard every day
8. In fact today I even discovered that I am still tons better at doing wall sits then other people. Skinny people. Skinny, unpregnant people. HA! (I find my validation in whatever pitiful ways I can. I wear pants with a stretch panel and I have to cross my arms over my chest when I jump up and down-let me have this.)
9. I am feeling Tshabalala/Rainbow Godiva kicking like crazy. It's delightful.
10. In short this stage of pregnancy rocks.

I hope you enjoyed this brief interlude in the whining.

LOL LOVE the costume. That's hilarious. I wish I would have thought of that last year! Or wait...no...3 years ago. I wasn't telling people this time last year that Evie was on her way.
