whoever said black was slimming...

obviously did not see me today.


 34 weeks.


this morning i woke up and realized i had forgotten to iron the shirt i was supposed to wear to church.  so to save time, i opted for a non-maternity, linen black dress that was very unforgiving as far as material goes.  i was worried each time i sat down that i was going to pop a stitch, and that seams would start unraveling before my very eyes.

luckily that didn't happen.

i was also glad that i had learned my lesson as far as non-maternity nylons go and haven't made that mistake again.   what was i thinking back then??

but this was also the day that i got my first comments of, "any day now, huh?"  and "woah, you do look pregnant!"

which are always so fun for the self-esteem.  i actually don't really care about those comments so much because, well, i am in fact pregnant.  there is a baby growing in there and i am a somewhat compact {kind word for short} individual, so where else is the baby going to show up?

but other than that, how am i feeling?

well surprisingly, much much better than i was a month ago.  or two months ago.  or six months ago.  i had no idea how much the moldy environment of our last house was making me feel seriously miserable.  

so now i just have the normal pregnancy uncomfortable-ness, but not the misery that i felt before we moved.  i'm so grateful for that, and am also grateful that i got the chance to feel the difference before i popped this child out.  because i had sworn off of future children, based solely on how i had felt for 7 months of living.  now?  well, i'm not making any promises....just grateful that i got the opportunity to realize that it wasn't just pregnancy that was making me feel so awful.

6 weeks left, friends!!

Whatever you gorgeous girl! I think you look wonderful! Hey I was wondering if you could send me your new address. I wanted to send you a little something for this new baby girl that will soon be coming. I can't believe it is so close. I am so excited for you!!!

You look fabulous! If it makes you feel any better your face and hair are simply gorgeous. You are so funny...even when you are prego:)

Um, just the fact that you are 34 weeks pregnant and can fit into a non-maternity outfit is amazing. That is usually elastic and drawstring only territory. You look adorable!

The fact that you can rock a non-maternity outfit being 6 weeks from delivery is downright unfair. I guess you deserve that though, since you've pretty much been through the ringer the rest of the pregnancy. You truly look incredible.

You look gorgeous! As always. I agree with Rachel. By 34 weeks I am hanging out in Brandon's side of the closet.

You're so cute Lynsey...I think you look great! :)

You are absolutely gorgeous. I might be inclined to have another baby if I could look as good as you do. :)

So excited for you!
