No thank you Hillary!

Well, I had my LAST doctors appointment today, praise the Lord!! As Ken and I were in the "little waiting room" before the doctor had come in, I was telling him what all I was looking forward to... Most moms would say, "Holding my new baby and looking into their eyes and just falling in love with each other." Me...not so much, oh yeah, don't get me wrong I can't wait to meet my new little guy and love on him like never before but I was thinking more along the lines of sleeping on my stomach, being heavily medicated, wearing something non-elastic, then complaining about having to button my pants and things spilling over....and I am soooo looking forward to my cute ankles once again. Cute ankles huh? Yeah, well Ken said that he didn't think he remembered my ankles being all that "cute" to begin with. Of course I took offense to the comment pleading with him about my prior ankle cuteness, but wasn't convincing. So I pull the blue paper up off the tops of my feet and say, "LOOK, is this what you want my ankles to look like for the rest of my life?" To which he answered, "No thank you Hillary!"

(try finding an anklet for these puppies)
(Oh, and I shall post a post-delivery shot of my ankles just to prove to Ken they haven't always looked like this)

Okay, on to more exciting news than the fact that my body has obviously retained a bit of fluid. My sweet little boy will be here sometime this Wednesday! Oh I played it off so cool, like it wasn't that big of a deal, as if I could possibly stand to be pregnant another week. But I had to...last week I had a hormonal break down in front of my doctor because I assumed he was going to induce days ago...my mistake. Any way, I go in at a bit before 6am on the 16th of April, and hopefully the baby will be here just in time for me to request some ridiculously large meal for lunch. I'll be at WK Boss. so feel free to drop in!

Okay, I remember PEP at Angela's the night before you had Landon. You pulled up your pants legs and showed us your big, swollen ankles. :0

Oh, I remember the day like it was yesterday that I got to sleep on my back without a 8lb baby smothering my insides. Okay...it was only a month ago. I feel your pain. Try not to eat Taco Bell post baby this time. LOL Can't wait to meet the new Jenkins boy.

Michelle, I have been thinking of you all morning. I woke up at 4:30am looking at the clock thinking you were probably getting up and getting ready to head to the hospital. I'm so excited for you and the family!

Ashlie said...

Gosh! That's what your ankles look like when they're swollen? They look pretty normal to me. Normal FOR me I should say; I guess I have a lot to look forward to when I get pregnant, huh? Hope everything went well today! I'm sure Anderson is super cute!

Autumn said...
