7 quick takes: day late, dollar short version

1. I am now 30 weeks pregnant. I have entered that delightful stage of pregnancy I call "beached whale." I am gigantic.

2. But Scott still thinks I'm pretty, so it's all good.

3. As an extra fun part of this pregnancy, I am now considered to be of "advanced maternal age." That means I'm 35 or older. So, I get to go for ultrasounds like all the time. Which is fun, in a way.

4. But the hospital is 45 minutes from my house. This whole thing will be less fun in 2 weeks when I have to start going once a week.

5. I decided that I am going to make red velvet cake pops today. Have to go to the craft store and get lollipop sticks.

6. Baseball has started! All 3 of my kids are playing this year. That means heading out to the fields which are on the end of town that is always about 10 degrees colder in the spring than the air outside of my house. We don't put away our winter gear until after Mothers' Day. Especially for a 9 AM T-Ball game. brrr......

7. Have had "Slumdog Millionaire" for over a month from the Netflix. Haven't had any time to watch it. This is my life.

Advanced maternal age - blah. Me too, but I never get to have any extra ultrasounds. But at 34 wks, I am pretty close to going every 2 wks now. And the office is 45 min away for me too. Sometimes I'd rather poke something sharp in my eye than strap 3 kids in the car and haul myself behind the wheel for another appt. Oh well, it's the home stretch.:)

Wishing the best for both of you mamas (and babies!)--well, if you are what "advanced maternal age" looks like then I guess that doesn't seem too bad!!!
