Pregnant...and Italy

I was just reminded, by someone else talking about summer vacations, that I was supposed to go on an awesome vacation this summer. Basically for as long as I can remember I have wanted to go to Italy. Maybe not when I was 5, but at least since my teen years. So 3 or 4 years ago I asked Steve if he would take me to Italy for my 30th birthday, which is this summer. He said yes. Now, however, I am doing this:

Honestly, I am loosing track, I think I am 37 weeks in this picture, but I don't know. Let's just say that I am. Pretty sure I am. This is what I am doing instead of going to Italy this summer.

We actually talked about this whole Italy thing when we decided to try and have another baby, Steve said let's wait to have a baby and I said no. I didn't want to go to Italy pregnant, can't not drink wine and be uncomfortable on the best vacation ever - and that would have meant waiting until this summer to get pregnant. I also didn't want our last baby to be so far apart in age from the girls. So we decided to have a baby and NOT go to Italy for my 30th birthday.


Right now, when it was 102 miserable degrees yesterday, when I am having a hard time walking because of my lower back, when I am not sleeping at night, and when I feel HUGE...I'm kind of still wishing I was going to Italy this summer.

Still totally excited about this man-child, but seriously, the last couple weeks of pregnancy are not what I would call fun. And it's the last couple of weeks. Two weeks from tomorrow to be exact. People keep asking me how I am feeling and I am feeling like a 38 weeks pregnant woman. And it's not a great feeling.

That's all. :)

Well darling, if it's any consolation, you look better 38 weeks (or 37, whitchever) pregnant, than I look no weeks pregnant. (—Not pregnant. Just to clarify). Dang, girl. You are beautiful. Italy will be worth the wait, I'm sure. :)

Hang in there. :-/ Those last couple weeks are brutal, but he'll be here soon and you won't ever feel like this again :)

Plus you'll get to go to Italy and enjoy it to the fullest soon!

I echo Beth's sentiment about you looking beautiful! I know you feel enormous, but just remember that fantastic feeling that's coming when you suddenly lose 16 or more pounds the day he's born. That always makes me want to run a marathon. And at 23 weeks pregnant and in the hot south, I completely empathize.
