Because it's safe to say that most people are on vacation and won't be reading this anyway.

And therefore, I may whine.


35 weeks pregnant.

Ginormo baby.

Seriously. She's actually ginormo. Already. Well, she was 2 weeks ago and I'm pretty sure she's gotten bigger since then since that's what babies seem to do.

And now moving forward.

Wait, did I mention that I'm also really hot? Even in my newly insulated, radiant barriered home I'm feeling like I'm in a sauna.

I blame that on the baby, too.

Also, I blame the weird rash on my face on her.

Clearly the poor girl is going to be born with a lot of emotional baggage. But I'm sure I'll forgive her as soon as she's done dancing the cha-cha on my spleen every night.

Okay, really moving forward. Have I mentioned that Eclipse comes out this week? Have you noticed a measurable difference in my level of excitement about this movie versus the past two movies? I can assure you that I am no less excited. I really think this movie promises to be the best of the three. I've seen my fair share of clips and it looks quite good, to be honest. And I DID have a New Moon watching party last week in which like 20 of my girlfriends came over and none of us really watched the movie (except for the kissy-face parts...oddly we all became somewhat silent during those parts). But we did have fun eating junk food off of Edward and Jacob plates (thanks, Jen) and I'm pretty sure no one realized that I had a cooler full of water bottles, so people were probably thirsty the whole time. Which is appropriate because vampires are thirsty all the time, too. So maybe it was a sub-conscious effort on their part to really relate to the movie.

This time around I've decided to forego the midnight showing. Because after approximately 9 PM I am basically disabled. I could probably qualify for a special handicap tag for my car, except that when am I ever driving past 9 PM? Never. That's when.

So on Wednesday I'm getting a babysitter, going to my doc appt. (because I go to those a lot), and then I'm going to a matinee. I may or may not be all by myself. And I'm truly okay with it. Me, a diet coke, a tub of popcorn and a frigid movie theater is probably the most romantic thing I can think of right now. I'm practically drooling just thinking of it.

You own that matinee! I did the midnight showing of HP6 with Taylor and I just don't think it's worth staying up that late for pretty much anything anymore. Truly a sign that I am getting old. Also too, you never answered my question about the theater's blood letting prior to the show this week.

Chris, Sarah, Madi, and Jax said...

Oh I feel your pain. I really do. I'm only 31 weeks but I'm measuring 3 weeks ahead and so that puts us almost even. Not sleeping well. Can't stay up at night. I just fall asleep wherever I am around 10 pm. Seriously all this pregnancy nonscense makes labor and a newborn seem inviting.

Jeni said...

Ahhh story of everyones life it seems. Why is everyone pregnant?
Ok but seriously, I have decided to forgo the midnight showing as well... Tear. I am embarrassed to admit it! I just can't cut it, I'm so tired. I wish I was going with you Wednesday though. When I get home. K?!

Sara, I think it's both rad AND creepy about the blood donation/Eclipse thing. I mean, blood donation is a great thing. But pairing it with Eclipse just makes me think of Renesmee. And at this point I try not to think of newborns with razor-sharp teeth.

SaraH, 3 weeks ahead? Seriously? I would jump off a cliff. Just sayin'. Though, I'm not really recommending that in your case. Maybe that just means you'll deliver early? I certainly hope so.

Jen, I'm glad that you're admitting defeat instead of putting yourself through the misery and the agony. I'm looking forward to ENJOYING Eclipse in a well-rested manner.

Something to cheer you:

I am on Team Jacob. You know what that means... I've seen enough Twilight movies to even know there is a Team Jacob. I could even be on Team Edward should it become necessary to sustain life, but I am soooo not on Team Bella or KStew for that matter. Barf.

Also too, Renesmee is the dumbest name ever. I don't care how sharp her teeth are.

I could get you a handicap placard in Pennsylvania for blindness, if that would help. But then you'd have to pretend not to watch the movie.

Sara K. said...

Deb, you chose wisely. Have you read the books? Shall I put off my Eclipse attendance until you are here, that is if you're still coming.

Oh my, I feel for you! I SO know what you're going through. 2 of mine were born in July, and it sucked. But you're almost there! Thank heaven for those freezers they show movies in. Hope you liked the movie! I have yet to get there...

Keeping you and baby girl in my prayers! Hope the time goes fast for you!
