Sorry these are a little blurry, I don't know what was up with our camera.
Still no stretchmarks (on the belly at least), and yes my belly button has "popped" I officially have an outie!
Lately, whenever I am out and people ask how long I have left I tell them two months (I'm due November 12th) and for some reason I always get the same reaction. Gasp, oh my goodness, are you serious, ohhh, I'm sorry, something along those lines. For some reason people are very shocked I still have 8 weeks left and they all think I am about ready to pop. I know I am very skinny, and my belly is very big, but still, it's not that big!! I think 8 weeks isn't long enough, that is so soon to me!! And everyone thinks he is going to be 2 weeks early, so that would mean only 6 weeks left! I am definitely not ready for that yet, and am not uncomfortable yet, so I am fine with baby bucc hanging out for a while longer, it seems so soon, but I am starting to feel more prepared as far as baby stuff is concerned.
We now have a bassinet with lots of extra sheets (thank you Uncle Mike and Aunt Donielle), a whole drawer of my dresser full of 0-3 clothes, other size clothes, some cute stuffed animals I bought at Cost Plus World Market, a car seat and two bases (thank you Tanya and Christy for getting it from her to me), some blankets, towels, washcloths, a baby bath, baby wipes (but not diapers yet I love costco we have a ton of wipes), a diaper pail, some baby toy/gym type things, a boppy type nursing pillow, and a huge comfy pregnancy body pillow that is my favorite thing in the world (who knew what a difference those can make!!) And I haven't even had a baby shower yet!!! Most of the stuff came from Uncle Mike and Aunt Donielle, and Steve and I are very grateful for everything they gave us, it felt like a baby shower on its own because there was so much wonderful stuff!!! My baby shower is on October 4th at 1 p.m. and Melanie is hosting it, I am very excited, she is going to throw a fun party and she has been spending a lot of time planning it for a the last couple of months.
