Glowing.

After an incredible weekend spent with my mother allowing the glow of pregnancy to radiate from my pores I realized a few things...

1.  I absolutely am loving being pregnant and feel gorgeous now that I am out of that "is she pregnant or  just fat?" stage.

2.  Maternity pants are the most absolute comfortable thing ever created.  Why do women not wear these all the time?!

3.  I've never felt sexier in a one piece bathing suit and fully intend to submerge my very pregnant self in the water this summer.  

4.  I have the appetite of a hippopotamus.

5.  There is not a Babies R Us store within a hundred miles of here.  Toys R Us is not the same thing...

6.  All weekend long I did not take one. single. photo.  Ugh. 

It was absolutely a fantastic mother-daughter time complete with lots of conversation, advice, food, walking, bonding, and shopping.  The best part was scouring the little tiny outfits.  The miniature shoes, and frilly little dresses.  We oohed and ahhed and suppressed every maternal urge to buy an entire wardrobe of newborn clothing, but it made everything just so much more real (as the baby flutters in my belly...)

With school ending soon, graduation pending, and lots of free time on my horizon that I haven't known since the beginning of 2009 I am beyond excited to be able to fully enjoy my current physical state.  Everything is going to culminate in to a state of euphoria and awesomeness in the next few weeks.  We will determine the baby's gender, school will end, possibly a new job (one can hope my resumes/applications will be answered with interview requests!), and spring will finally officially arrive.

Yes, I know its already April 5th and several weeks into "spring", but you have to understand that its not really spring.

Not when this is what I see outside my window...


But, I am looking past all this white crap on my lawn towards everything awesome that is soon to come!

I'm looking at that same scene outside my window in upstate NY, Jen. Sigh. Will we skip straight from winter to summer this year?? It's pretty in December. Right now, I just feel grumpy. grrrrr.

It's so much fun to read how great you are feeling. Your excitement and anticipation is contagious! I'm so very happy for you! Except the snow part... you can keep that.

Sounds like the weekend visit with your mom was exactly what you needed! So glad you two had so much fun together! I sure hope the snow melts away into spring for you very soon. (sorry about mud season) :)

Isn't it amazing that your mother probably had the same feelings as you are experiencing while she was carrying YOU. Pregnancy is such a magical, sacred time, and I am loving that you are glowing. Enjoy this very special time in your life..it makes me smile as I remember feeling the same way 28 and 25 years ago.

And I kind of want to give you a high five for planning on rocking that swimsuit. :)

You should have had someone take a photo of you and your mom........
I also loved being pregnant. This post is full of hope. (Even with snow falling!)
So happy for you!

Summer feels like just a dream here too. But I believe it will come. Last year it took until June here, but it did come, finally! I'm glad you had so much fun shopping. It makes everything even more real doesn't it! It sounds like the next little while will be so exciting! Your excitement is contagious!
