The Power of Words

I just posted a picture of myself at 35 weeks preggo on Facebook and I received tons of beautiful comments and “likes”. I have to say that it really made my day. Nothing like going on Facebook for a little pat on the back these days. It’s really, really sweet that people can’t believe I’m only a month away from giving birth. It’s also really sweet to hear that people can’t believe I’m having baby #3. “You look so good!!!” As if having baby #3 should make you look like you are carrying a baby elephant. But anyway, I feel like I can’t complain about how I feel after such nice compliments. This is what I want to say:

I kid, I kid! Haha! I kid because I don’t ever hold back. I let everyone know how miserable I have been feeling and give them details on how it’s so tough to chase Santi around…blah, blah, blah. BUT, I have decided to stop. I really believe in the power of what you say coming true. I believe your intentions go out into the universe and God is going to hear me and say, “Ok, let’s put this whiny woman out of her misery.”…and the baby will come early. And there is no crib ready! And the new baby clothes have not been washed!! And I don’t have my hospital bag packed!!! And I don’t have a sitter for the boys at night!!!! AND MY MOTHER ISN’T DUE TO ARRIVE FROM CHICAGO FOR ANOTHER 2 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So that’s it. I’m telling you this last time that I am not feeling fab, that I am only eating foods that are white or brown (pasta, pad thai, cookies, chocolate and coffee), that I can’t sleep anymore, that I can’t walk anymore, that I’m gassy…and I’m done.

Please put YOUR intentions out into the universe for me to HOLD THIS BABY IN PLACE til at least my mom arrives. Thank you. Apparently I’m also losing my mind. :-)

Your Friend,


P.s. Yes, I am also seeking words of encouragement, pats on the back, “YOU CAN DO IT BETTY” cheers and lots of positive comments on here today. I have no shame.
