"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

A Watermelon!

Okay- So, we've now fruit graduated to a watermelon and I believe it to be true because my stomach is outrageous!

Doctor's appt went well
Gained another 5 lbs
Blood Pressure Perfect 126/ 70
Camille's Heartbeat is steady and strong
My stomach has finally started to drop
Still no indication that I will be having her before the 25th
Doc says she's about 6 / 6.5 pound right now and expects her to be around 8 / 8.5 pounds when born!
Fingers crossed she's a FATTY, so I won't be so nervous about handling her. :)

P and I ate at Olive Garden with our friends Lacy and Griff who also had a doctor appointment today (they are expecting twins!) OG Soup, Salad, and Breadsticks... never tasted so good!
I hope to get Lacy a Blog started soon---so, she can post about her pregnancy.
Blogs, in my opinion, are better... you can get on people's nerves with this pregnancy stuff on Facebook but on a blog, if someones reading what you wrote- its because they choose too!

So, I go back next Thursday... hopefully, I will have progressed. I want her to come when she's ready, but my feet hurt, I'm a zombie because of zero sleep, and my back is starting to ache. It would be nice to do a simple task; such as, picking an item off of the floor without it taking my breath away. Also, I'm ready to be able to sing to the radio in my car without having to stop mid chorus line to inhale air. Its frustrating... but, I know she'll be all worth it!
