Here are what will probably be the last belly pictures this pregnancy. These were taken at 36 1/2 weeks. I am so excited for this pregnancy to be over and to meet our little guy. Also, a disclaimer incase any of you see me in real life. I made my daughter take like 20 pictures of me. I picked the two where I look the smallest to post on here. I'll keep the others for posterity, or just to hopefully guilt the little guy later.. Whatever, but I'd just hate for you to get the wrong idea and say I look small on here, and then be speechless and embarrassed in real life. In real life, I'm huge. Really really huge. Huge in a way that makes me look really tiny to myself in these pictures. Fair warning.I thought I did a pretty good job looking serene in these pictures. I was going for the "Oh I'm so blessed to have this wonderful blessing inside of me, and I'm not hating every second of it." look. Between pictures, I was growling at my kids to "stand here, not there, don't get in the picture, hold the camera the other way, oh, ow, another stupid contraction, Essi, keep your pants on, we have to leave soon." Then, like a mother who's voice changes when the phone rings in the middle of yelling at her kids, I'd put on my serene face. I think it turned out quite well.
Oh, and I'm kind of ticked because yesterday, I ripped a hole in these pants. They were probably my favorite maternity pants ever. So, this baby really had better come soon, I've only got one (ugly) pair of maternity pants now!
