He replies, "Yeah!?" (in the "and you're just now realizing this?" tone - major brownie points to him.)
How is it that now my pregnancy is almost over, I finally have adjusted to my roundness. I feel confident and sexy. I don't feel awkward most days (except when I try to roll over in bed). Even day-to-day stuff I still am able to do pretty easily. And I can still carry Nathan - even though I threatened him starting about 6 months ago that "Mommy can't carry you any more." (I carried him through the grocery store Monday, because he fell asleep in the car and didn't wake up when we got there like I'd anticipated.)
When people ask me how I feel, though, I most often answer, "Fat." It's just an easy answer, and makes them laugh. But I don't really feel that fat. I actually feel less fat then I did when I was six months along, somehow.
Anyhow. It just kind of figures that when I have a week left of being pregnant, all the sudden I feel good about myself. Maybe this is just a boost I'll need to get me through the "what happened to my body??!?" I'm going to go through as soon as I don't have a baby in my belly. :)
