So now that the baby's on the outside (instead of indeed remaining pregnant forever), I'm ready to get back to being myself. I remember it'll be a while before I actually fit into my 'regular' jeans, but for now, I've got my wedding rings back on, and I may even get a little jangly with charm bracelets. On a really daring day, I even wear shoes that tie!
Maggie (bless her heart...) says my belly is getting smaller, but it's still squishy. She said she likes it like that...hmm...okay? Right after the birth, she climbed up on the hospital bed with me and asked, "Mommy, why is your belly still big?" Good thing she's cute!
