I was feeling overly large just a few months ago! Hang in there, I know its easier said then done. But, my philosophy always was, they are easier to take care of this way!

But your "pop me" cracked me up! Too funny!

I don't wanna be pregnant anymore. :X
So far, pretty good. Gall bladder pain is gone for now, too! The bebe is still measuring big, from what I've read, 2 lbs ahead! I was gonna have him by c-section last week but his lungs weren't ready yet. So, next Thursday morning, at one day shy of 39 weeks, I'll have bambino #2. I have an appt this Friday to check the baby (NST test, which was good yesterday) and bloodwork, pre-op stuff, and bp/ protein check. My blood pressure and protein both went up over the past week; protein was +2 (or +3?) and my bp yesterday was in the 140's over 70's. Nothing scary, but we're not amused, either. ;) So... if things escalate this week, I could have him this weekend. I am to call the OB if I so much as feel funny. (I feel funny NOW, can I have the baby out please???!!) I know I sound ungrateful to be pregnant, but really, I love it. I just can't be the mama to baby #1 that I want to be, and Mike's taking time off to help out (which is a good thing, I kinda like having him here).

So... I guess the good news is that, even though I had severe preeclampsia very early in pregnancy and had Anthony at 27 weeks, I still made it this far without pre-e. I was worried early on that we'd be in the same boat as before.
