They Say Black is Slimming

So I've been wearing a lot of it these days.

Week 35...apparently the time I start to feel big and uncomfortable and look tired regardless of eye makeup. :)

We're heading out of town this weekend for an early Christmas with my family. I would say after that we'll stay put in the area and do the whole waiting game (which, to be honest, thrills me - I'm loving having an excuse not to plan ANYTHING for a few weeks:). Women in my family don't typically go early - so I'm trying to mentally prep for hitting my due date or being past, but at the same time hoping this baby comes at least a week early.

I'm not sure I'd advise having a baby due soon after the holidays - not if you work full-time anyways. With Christmas and baby preparations, and trying to get things settled at work for my maternity leave...I don't have much mental or physical capacity for anything else these days. I was just telling a friend last eve - I hate being one of those people who's first inclination is to talk about how busy I am - so I won't. But prayers over these last weeks would be appreciated.

Once again, pregnancy pictures haven't exactly been a priority. I think the last one I posted was at 30 weeks...so here's the progress at 35...

Ahhh yes it is...but I still wear white whenever I can to prove I can wear something without stains...with lots of little hands touching me all day. SOMEtimes it works...other times I wish I'd worn slimming un-staining black instead. ;) You look great!
