"Baby needs a donut?"

I've mentioned my liking for blueberry donuts (not a pregnancy craving...just something I'm being much more liberal with lately). So on the way home today, I stopped at the donut shop. I ordered 2, but one was honestly for my husband who was home early. Anyway, the lady (who I think must recognize me by this point) asked, "Baby needs a donut?" This was funny, but also significant since it's the first time a stranger has commented on the belly. So that makes me officially pregnant. She asked if it was a boy or a girl, and how many months I was. And when I said seven, her eyes got wide and she said, "Baby REALLY needs a donut!" It was funny. Here's the picture I took as soon as I got home to document (and also to send to my mom, who lives in Michigan, who requested that today).

In other news, I was deciding whether or not to go to the gym, and if I WAS going I was NOT getting the donut. If I was NOT going, I WOULD get it. How backwards it that? Another runner friend who has 2 kids told me today she was put on modified bed rest with her first. She'd given up running by then just because it was uncomfortable, but she interpreted modified bed rest to mean swimming and yoga were just fine. She was induced (with both) a week after the due date. So, I do believe I'm in no danger, but I am also being cautious just in case, for another 2 weeks probably. Which won't mean doing nothing, but it will mean not doing something every day. Which is OK, as I'm finding tons of things to do around the house, as it turns out.

31 weeks, 5 days:

You loook so cute ! seriously being officially pregnant at 7 months is ridiculous. This happened to me this week at 5.5 months. Have you had any cramping? I started getting cramped yesterday in the center, low, after running. I have to go get it checked out.

Isn't that funny how working out results in better eating and junk eating results in not working out? I'm *totally* the same way!! What a viscious cycle. Anyway, I've enjoyed some indulgences along the way b/c I keep telling ymself that once baby is born there will be no more of that!! ;) Good news is that my weight gain has finally seemed to stop and I'm due so soon so I'm not too worried at this point.
By the way, with the shirt on you're still hardly looking pregnant! Amazing!
