33 Weeks and a Birthday

My birthday, not Julee's, of course!

Yup, today's my birthday. I turned 27, and have thus moved out of my mid-twenties into my upper twenties. Goodbye, youth. I had a great birthday - thanks to everyone for your well wishes on Twitter, Facebook, through texts and calls, and to those of you who joined us for our Japanese steakhouse dinner. You all are awesome!

But anyway, I'm 33 weeks pregnant today! I know I have only done biweekly updates up to this point, but optimistic as I am about things, I'm not sure how far this pregnancy is going to end up going. I'll be doing weekly pictures from now on, since there is no telling how much longer I've got left. Plus, I felt really bad about last week's picture. People said I looked huge. People were shocked at the massive difference from my 30 week shot. I didn't feel very good about myself.

What you don't know is that Julee was hanging out very high in my belly that day, and that Clark made me laugh right before snapping the shutter (causing my belly to leap up). My belly looked quite a bit different in the picture than it normally did, in my opinion, but I didn't really care at that point. Now, I do. So here's a new picture for you, what I think is a little more accurate. Sure, it's still big, but she's sitting much lower today and I made Clark stop dancing behind the lens so I wouldn't laugh this time ;)

In other updates, I'm feeling pretty good. Three more shots left to go. Four weeks until I'm full term and get the all-clear to deliver at the birth center. I'm tired and my back is constantly killing me. My parents get here tomorrow, and Christmas is in four days!! Wahoo!!
