Belly Awaiting a Zip Code

It's getting to the point where I feel as big as a house.  Most things that I wear accentuate my growing belly.  I'm still working as much as I can, which is about half as much as I was working a few months ago.  I like to work because I like my job and during the day I feel pretty good.  Usually working with customers is run of the mill, today though was a different story...

I had customers all morning say things like "you must be due soon!" Or "Are you sure you should be doing that?"  I even helped an older man who said "You make me nervous, shouldn't you be lying down at home?"  And he kept commenting on how much ground I must cover in one day.  I really really dislike any attention from people, so having a belly that demands attention (I guess) is hard for me.  My co-worker thinks my belly needs it's own zip code.  I'm ready for this part to be over but I still have 6 weeks left...and 4 weeks of work left, if he comes on time.  Until then I guess I'll just have to deal with the comments and questions.

In Honor of Ms. Taylor

I don't know if any of you heard but Elizabeth Taylor died today.  Because I have a great love for classic movies I wanted to do a post on my favorite Elizabeth Taylor movies.  The best part about Elizabeth Taylor is that, yes, she was incredibly beautiful, but she could act!  She really could...which is why I think she was chosen for so many great roles! So here we go...

1) Elizabeth was the original bride in Father of the Bride.  So that's my number one pick.  Make sure you also see the sequel Father's Little Dividend, where Elizabeth as Kay has a baby. (This is one of my most favorite movies!)

2. The next one is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.  This is a play written by Tennessee Williams about a troubled family in the south.  Elizabeth stars opposite Paul Newman.  This is a great movie with tons of layers, great acting!

3.  The last one I'll talk about is called A Place in the Sun.  Elizabeth is a young girl who falls in love with a man with one big secret.  Drama, of course, ensues.

These are just some of her movies that I have enjoyed but there are so much more!  Enjoy!

Pancakes, Labor, and Tummies

Today is National Pancake Day?! I love pancakes, or before I was pregnant I liked them every once in a while...now that I am pregnant they are a weekly staple.  I wasn't planning on having pancakes tonight but I just might have too now :) Delish...also for some strange reason I crave Cherry 7up. 

What else?  On Wednesday I will be 30 weeks pregnant.  This past Saturday my hubs and I went to a birth class.  I feel so much more prepared and more confident in the process...the process of having a baby I guess.  I really liked that the instructor was super positive and reassured us that I was made for this!  Because P.S. have you guys been watching the new show on Lifetime called "One Born Every Minuet?" I have...I can't help myself...um it's totally terrifying though. I just have to tell myself that they have to put the dramatic ones on otherwise nobody would watch. (because I'm not going to stop watching)

In my third trimester I have noticed that sleeping has become uncomfortable for me.   For a couple nights I have slept on the couch with the middle back cushion removed so I can put my belly in the space.  It's so nice! My sweet husband slept on the floor beside me.  Last night we slept in our bed, not comfortable.  I don't know what to do.  Boo for that.  That's pretty much it, except for the fact that I feel giant now.  I don't know how more baby is going to fit in this belly!  10 weeks to go!!
