A Photo-Essay of the 34-1/2 Week Belly

I call this big belly with slouch. This is what I mostly look like on the street (though in more structured clothes), since holding my back up and straight is not easy or painless!



This is the close-up belly when I'm actually standing up straight.

This is the belly lying down. Here you can see that there is more bulk toward the bottom than the top. My midwife says Absurdist Baby is starting to move down.

Thanks peeps! Yes, Sis, the pregnancy project is a 40-week endeavor, so they say. I was my mom's first baby -- and was eighteen days overdue. Eighteen. Like more than half a month! So maybe this pumpkin will come out near Oct 10-11, or maybe much closer to Halloween. Oy vey. I can't imagine a whole 'nother month or maybe almost two of this.
