Home S-t-r-e-t-c-h: female version

I've had a few requests for a belly picture. I like to make my readers happy. So, Mom and Julie, here you go. In all my glory:


This was taken Easter Sunday. Yeah, just add a few weeks, a batch of homemade donuts, and a scoop or two of carmel and vanilla ice cream and you can imagine how house-like I'm looking now. At 38 weeks and 5 days. But who's counting? And I guess it's appropriate that I resemble a house. Because that is precisely what I am. A home to this sweet girl who already owns my heart.

My belly button seems considerably lower today than it did last week. I think that's a good sign. And the last loose ends that needed tying up before baby's arrival are coming to a close. I am ready. I only hope she is soon!

You look great! I can't wait to see her, wish we could have gotten together like I wanted to but things got a little crazy on our end.

Your belly looks adorable...and the shirt you're wearing looks like it's a cute one, too! Now if only we could see that smile of yours!! Good luck in the home stretch, Destinee. I'm at 34 weeks and I feel like my belly is as big as yours, if not bigger! And my doctor says I'm measuring on the small end. Really? Small for what species? I feel anything but small right now. Can't wait to see pictures of you AND baby!

You look so great! (Are you sure that isn't just a ball under that shirt, you don't gain any weight anywhere else... lucky you!) I can't wait to see this new baby!

I was going to say the same thing as Cassity! You just look like you're hiding a basketball under your shirt! :) I can't wait to see pics of your little girl too. Also can't wait to hear her name!

Destinee,
You look good! You don't look HUGE like your husband told me. Your belly looks just perfect! Was that weird to say...anyway, we can't wait for another little one to join the family, just wish we could hold her. Good luck with the next couple weeks we'll be waiting for the call.
Love ya!
