grunt-worthy: story deadlines, mountains of laundry and fig newtons for breakfast.

all of a sudden, i feel really, really pregnant.

gray turned 30 weeks yesterday. and i'm not sure if it's because addi was born and owen was born or what, but i feel suddenly very pregnant.

like, waddling is not an option. and my pelvis aches. and my back KILLS. and bending over is impossible. there's this thing in the way of my regular movement.

landon recently made a comment in reference to my grunting -- no, i won't tell you the whole story. i, understandably, was not impressed and resolved to show him by not grunting no matter what.


i totally grunt. and moan. and sigh. ALL THE TIME.

and it's weird 'cause i don't feel as heavy or as just-plain-fat as i did last time, but the baby is so THERE. like right out in front causing an unnatural center of gravity that somehow became the bane of my existence when i was not paying attention.

and i have stories due. and i really wanted a pop-tart, but they're all gone so i had to have fig newtons. and we're supposed to be in waxahachie next week for district council, and we're thisclose to going commando if i don't wash underwear soon.

but my pelvis hurts.

ten more weeks?

yes. you heard right. that was me grunting.

I grunt... alot. I am not pregnant, and it is not a temporary condition. I think I would even if I was skinny. It really annoys me. This is one of my favorite posts of all time for you.

It's 'cause Gray is a boy... in my opinion... it makes you feel low and preggers ... longer and sooner.

FYI - I gafawed at the almost need to go commando comment. Thanks for that!
