Nursing covers and George Strait

I just need to share that I am finding it utterly impossible to wrap my mind around the fact that in about 3 WEEKS, I'm having a baby!!!! I'm super excited, but this pregnancy has so faded into the back of my mind that it seems really surreal that it's almost over. That it's almost time to deliver the baby, and that I won't be pregnant anymore, etc. etc.

I'm really trying to treasure these last weeks of feeling my baby move inside of me, of having a big huge belly that is forever being kissed and patted by 4 eager children. I feel great, and minus the constant getting up at night to use the bathroom, I'm happy as a clam. Interestingly this pregnancy has really felt like just a natural part of life...it's hard to describe.

The baby hasn't dropped, or settled head-down. She likes hanging out in the transverse position, but there's still plenty of room in there for her to change positions (which is why she's able to be transverse), so she does that regularly as well. I guess we'll see what she ends up deciding to do. That's the benefit (for her) of being the third baby to occupy that space, though of course it makes me a little anxious!




In other baby-related news, I happened to be at the thrift-store yesterday and accidentally happened upon one of these nursing covers. The exact one in the above picture. That costs $35. It was in pristine condition, quite probably never used. So I bought it--for $1.50. The good ol' Denver ARC makes me happy, happy, happy. (Not to mention they come to my house once a month, free of charge, and pick up any old junk I want to donate.) I could go on and on about the exciting things I find there on a regular basis, but I won't, because you would probably be bored. (Someone once told me that I am easily amused. It's true.)


And here's a testament to how easily amused I am (or an insight into what a geek I am): I also purchased, for $1, a movie at the ARC yesterday. (VHS, I might add.) The title? Pure Country. Starring George Strait. From 1992. My best friend and I saw it in the theater when we were 11 years old, and it became one of my favorite movies. No joke. I had the soundtrack AND the movie poster. And now, 17 years later, I finally own the film. I seriously cannot WAIT to watch it--Kevin claims I will be utterly ashamed and embarrassed when I see it again, that I ever liked it in the first place. He also is refusing to watch it with me. But...let's just say that the hospital I'll be delivering at has VCRs in every room. And at some point during my time there I'll be digging into my hospital bag and pulling out that movie. It's socially unacceptable for a husband to leave his wife's side while she's in labor, or shortly after she's given birth. Even if Pure Country happens to be on...

I'm with your husband. You'll be completely ashamed of yourself. :) I think this ranks up there with one of my favorite blog entries ever. You made me laugh.

I can't believe you're almost ready to have this baby. Congrats on such an uneventful and healthy pregnancy!

I own that exact nursing cover. Sadly, I paid full price. Sigh.

As for the movie. You know Brianna, there are some things you really don't need to share with the world. Really.
