I Am the Anti-Contraction

Talking with my grandma today she gave me a visual image I couldn't help but share. She said when she was pregnant with my mother that my mom put one foot on each side of her pelvis, folded her arms, and refused to come out. I think my kid is following suit. Maybe its because of book club, but I picture this straddling the birth canal:
(Sorry if thats too graphic) He is already thinking, "Oh, the cleverness of me!" Or not ...
So, yes, I am overdue ... no baby yet. Don't worry, I will let all of cyberspace know when he arrives. We can't wait.

Once again ... No Picture for your benefit

I was just thinking this morning that one of the things I love about pregnancy is how often my pants slide down and I show a little butt-crack. When your belly sticks out this far it just pushes any and all pants right on down. Its really quite glamorous. Sorry to anyone who has been on the receiving end of such a view.

I don't think its just pregnancy brain. I grew up in a neighborhood with street names like sycamore and tamarack. I was telling some friends about the difference in raking leaves at my parent's house and our tiny little trailer yard. I didn't know what a tamarack was. So, just FYI, the first tree is a tamarack (kind of looks like a pine, huh Sussanah?), the second is a sycamore, and the last is a catalpa. Geesh ....
