I was looking at some pregnancy countdown thingys online. Not because I'm going to add one to my blog, frankly because I visit my blog daily to link to other blogs and I don't want to have to see it every single day. I just feel like time will start to crawl along if I am reminded how many days, hours, minutes, & seconds I have left of my body not being my own. Not that I don't like being pregnant or think of it as a complete blessing. I just like to feel great and energized and myself and I don't feel that way while pregnant. I happen to feel just icky and tired and not myself. Ok, so now that I am totally rambling in a different direction, let's get back to what we were talking about. I like to look at the countdown things every once in a while. It's much more exciting to me to see the countdown after it's been a few weeks since I last looked. It's like, am 27 days further along than last time I was wasting time online looking at these things! So today I was looking at one particular one and it gave a percentage of how far along you are. I am 33% along. I couldn't believe that! A third of the way through! This pregnancy really has gone by so fast. And why wouldn't it, when I have a kindergartner, a very busy toddler and I'm taking care of a household and running a business! I hardly have time to sit and gaze at my growing belly and think of the baby that is to join us this summer. I haven't even blogged about the pregnancy, (besides the feeling yucky at the beginning, which has gotten much better, thanks for asking) and posted no pictures of the belly. Now don't get excited. I don't plan on posting one anytime soon. Right now it just looks like I ate too much at Thanksgiving & Christmas and I most certainly did! so I will be waiting until it's a cuter, rounder shape before showing it. So I just thought I'd share with you that I am almost exactly 1/3 of the way to through this journey we call pregnancy. Hopefully I'll be checking back in with you soon with the news of whether Marty will be completely outnumbered in his family or if we will be evening out the odds a bit. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, and even if you weren't, I have to share and toot my own horn, I have not put on ONE piece of maternity clothing yet! Go me! That's not to say that my jeans aren't being held together with a rubberband instead of the button and the zipper may be zipped only half-way, but hey for baby number three I am pretty surprised I wasn't wearing mumu's by week 8!
