I'm a hot mama...literally

I haven't posted any pictures of the belly lately. It's gotten big! I'm still amazed that I have this huge stomach... I don't know, it's just a really weird feeling. Sometimes I still have to do a double take when I walk by a mirror.

A lot of women have been telling me that they feel sorry for me in this heat. We went to a church picnic last night, and I literally had to go inside. I knew I had to do something when I realized I was fanning myself with my food plate! One sweet lady told me she understood how I felt. She said she carried 2 of her kids through the summer. She said, "No one can understand what it's like unless they've done it." That's so true! I had no idea I would be so hot all the time. When I say hot, I feel like that's an understatement. I feel like I have an electric blanket wrapped around me all the time. It would come in handy in the winter! :)

Anyway, here is a belly picture taken at 32 weeks: (I don't like the 33 week picture!)
Big, huh? According to my baby books, Aubrey should weigh around four and a half pounds now. She is gaining weight fast - about half a pound a week from now on. I can't wait to see her!

By the way, David has all of the weekly pregnancy pictures posted on his Picasa. If you care to see more you can go to We think it's neat to see the weekly progression, but I know not everyone would find it quite as interesting as we do. :) There is also an album of nursery photos showing all the progress.

Just looked at the Picasa. It is really cool to see the progression! I know y'all are so excited. I was pregnant with both of mine during summer, but it wasn't the end of the pregnancy. I can only imagine what you're going through. And let me tell you, winter doesn't help -- I wore no coat in winter and you know the day I had Carter it snowed. I was still so hot all the time but I imagine it must definitely be worse in a Mississippi summer!

I'm sorry that you've been so hot, but at least it's almost over. Just try to avoid going outside as much as possible. Love the belly!!
