23 weeks and counting

i was talking, ok, i was whining to my a dear friend yesterday about this pregnancy. during the conversation she asked how much longer, i said about 3 months. and her quick reply was how fast that is going to come.

i laughed and didn't take it seriously. until we got off the phone. i took out the calendar that i never look at because:

1. i can't go or do anything and my dr. appointments are seared into memory.

and 2. it's always frustrating to see the days and days of waiting to go.

but wait a minute, i only have 12 weeks until i'm as far along with abby. and honestly, after 35 weeks, i don't think i'm too worried about this baby coming along healthily.
12 weeks can sound like such a short time. and then again, it can sound like a long, long, long, long, long, long time.

but for now, i will entertain you with a belly shot. to do the belly shot, or to not? that is the question. i always enjoy seeing all of you other preggers bloggers, so i hope the feeling is mutual.

ps-lucy felt the baby move yesterday and thought it was the coolest thing ever. it was, in a word, awesome.

pps- if any of you have any advice on how to survive partial/complete bed rest, please leave it in comments or email me:

Yeah for a picture of you!! You don't look very big at all considering you only have 12 weeks left. You look very cute.

I wish I had good tips, but I don't. Just call me when you need to vent/talk. :)

You look soooo good. Did you hear we moved back to the valley. Only temporarily, for like 6 months. Crazy huh? Good luck on the baby.

so, you look about the same size I do at about 12 weeks, not 12 weeks left. Thanks for the picture! no, no bed rest tips, but I'm curious why you are on bed rest? If you lived here I would be more than happy to have your girls spend LOTS of time at our house. Are you still coming home next summer?

You look amazing! Seriously, what an adorable belly. You're tiny, though, just like I am when I'm preggo. And I wish I had advice for surviving bed rest, but I don't. Good luck making it the next 16! Over halfway there--yahoo!
