so, so big

Today, as JF and I walked into Steak and Shake to have lunch with the hard-workin' hubster, an employee walked by me and said, "Holy Jesus!"

I said, "Yes."

What was I supposed to say?  Jesus is holy and I am big so I thought I'd just agree with her.  It seemed better than telling her she was rude or asking for the manager.  But I bet I could have gotten my junior-sized Nutter Butter milkshake for free if I would have spoken to the manager.

Oh. And this is how big I am.  In case you're just dying to know.

Not the greatest picture, I know, but you get the gist.
10lb baby inside.  I'm sure.  It's my own damn fault for drinking Nutter Butter milkshakes and Moolattes.  And eating french fries.  And pizza.

BUT in my defense I have eaten a whole lotta fruit and asparagus this pregnancy.  I mean, I've gained like 25lbs or less.  So that's good.

With L I went into labor the day of her due date and gave birth the next day.  With Ben I gave birth two days after his due date.  JF was born three days after his due date.  If this baby is going to stick with the pattern then I should go into labor today/tonight and give birth tomorrow. 

Oh Holy Jesus, please let it happen.  Amen!


  1. AHHHHH! I remember walking into the gym in my 9th month with Isaac...and one of the employees exclaiming, "Holy crap, you're about to pop!" I didn't know what to I said, "Well, in your case, I hope you're wrong!"

    Weird. People are weird.

    I think you look beautiful...AND I've never had a Nutter Butter shake, but I think I'll send Josh out for one today :)

  2. I like your bangs and your drapes and this picture makes your house look clean. So all in all, it's a pretty good picture, wouldn't you say?

  3. You look like a woman about to deliver a big, healthy baby should look. I just hope that big, healthy baby comes VERY soon, because I know how uncomfortable you are!

  4. I think you look great! There is nothing more amazing than gestating a human being. You go, mama!! :) I always hated the rude comments. I hope for your sake that you deliver soon. It is miserable going over your due date by a week or more!! Hang in there!

  5. If it makes you feel better, Nick and I looked at your picture and the first thing Nick said was that you look thinner. I look amazing as usual. :)

  6. Ooooh, the public comments! What is wrong with people? They're mean and stupid, that's what.

    I'm so excited for you that baby is going to be here any day. I know you're hatin' life right now, waiting like this, but she WILL be here soon. She MUST. And when she does, it's gonna be fabulous.


  7. Thanks, friends.

    Alisha, I'm glad you like my bangs. And my curtains. Those curtains are probably my favorite part of my house.

    And Nick and Mia - you guys win BEST COMMENT! Congratulations!

  8. you look great! and i too love your bangs. :) praying for you

  9. You are beautiful. And -take comfort- I have given birth to 2 ten pounders (NOT at the same time) lol, they were both born naturally and they were very happy healthy babies, even though they looked like 6 months old! God Bless you! +JMJ+

  10. What is WRONG with people! When I was almost due with Noah (my almost 10 pounder) I got rude comments ALL the time... don't people know better than to piss off an already grumpy pregnant woman?? Hang in there, Bonnie!!

  11. Man, I wish people would just learn to keep their traps shut! :) With my first pregnancy, I wasn't used to it yet and I burst into tears many a time during the last 6 weeks of that pregnancy. By #5, I was over it. I often pondered getting smart-mouthed right back at them, but usually acted better than I thought.

    Congratulations that the day is just about here!

  12. Dang it, everyone pointed out your bangs! I wish mine would look cool like yours!! I think it's a great picture!

  13. And didn't some random person say the same thing to you when you were carrying one of the boys? I seem to remember you blogging about that. In any case, yes, Jesus is good :) And you're awesome!!

  14. You look awesome! I can only wish that I look half that good at 40+ weeks!! P.S. I have curtains very similar!!
