    so cute…i’m just now at the point where i feel TRULY pregnant…he’s moving all the time (and i can actually feel him even with the anterior placenta!), my belly gets in the way of all my food photos, and i’m always trying to figure out how to make the most of my pregnancy clothes. i can’t wait til your baby girl arrives!

      that is awesome! i’m so excited for you, friend πŸ™‚

    As a CNM student/doula–no more reclining on your back (like in that photo)!!! If you are going to lie on the couch, your side is your best bet for getting baby to roll forward. Babies love to hang out posterior when you lie on your back.

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 5:25 pm

      haha i just did that for the picture- i’ve been leaning forward or laying on my side since friday. and i hate it.

  7. Maria @ a life to Bragg about on December 26, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    Haha love this! So cute and clever πŸ™‚

  9. Marci on December 26, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    Not sure how you still fit into your lulu pants for so long. Mine are too snug around my lower belly even when worn super low. Any day now!

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 5:28 pm

      they’re magically super tight now. and i refuse to buy new pants to wear for 10 days, haha, so i’ll be wearing lot shirts and sweaters to cover my bum

      • Jessica on December 26, 2011 at 8:13 pm

        I hope for your sake it is only 10 days πŸ™‚ I was 10 days over and it took 2 inductions with my first. Not what you want to hear, right? I hope your baby turns for you!!!!!!

        • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:16 pm

          gah! i’m so uncomfortable with the back pain, i really hope it’s sooner

  10. RachelG on December 26, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I had a dream last night where I was 6 months pregnant and it felt so real!! I blame you and my breeding machine cousins, lol! πŸ˜‰ SO excited for you guys and can’t wait to see baby Zumba-holic!

  11. Jenn on December 26, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    Hey gina! Maybe you or the cnm could offer your opinions on measuring fundal height. I am 32 weeks measuring 30 cm. I see various docs so im interested to see what others have to say on the topic πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:24 pm

      i wish i knew more about that, but i honestly have no idea.
      congrats to you! almost there πŸ™‚

  12. Rebecca on December 26, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:23 pm

  15. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga on December 26, 2011 at 7:49 pm

    Sending you vibes to get thru the contractions and to get that little precious sunny side up girl to turn the other way!

    πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:17 pm

      thank you- i need them!

  16. Raewyn on December 26, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    So cute. πŸ˜€ Hahah, I started freaking out as I got to the bottom and thought, “Ohmygosh – is she saying she gave BIRTH already??!!?” Heheh. Sooo excited and happy for you, Gina! Keeping you in my prayers. πŸ™‚

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:17 pm

      thank you, raewyn!

  17. R @ Learning As I Chop on December 26, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    I keep checking to see if you’ve gone yet. I’m due around the same time – Jan 7th – and am wondering who’s gonna go first!

    • Fitnessista on December 26, 2011 at 8:16 pm

      i’ll be lurking your blog to find out! πŸ™‚ so excited for you

  18. Yelena (One Healthy Apple) on December 26, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    I’m loving this post! I won’t have a cool holiday to make up a song for, but Memorial Day weekend (around my due date) will hopefully find me as content and ready to go as you! I’ll totally be lurking and waiting for the little bebe announcement.

  19. April on December 26, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    So excited for you Gina! Sending “easy labor” vibes your way! I delivered 10 days early so be ready, which I know you are YIPPEE! Can’t edit for the news…waiting to see the se post up for more than a day, then I will suspect you went into labor:)

    • April on December 26, 2011 at 10:25 pm

      Whoops meant can’t “wait” for the news ha ha

  20. Janine @ ThePurpleGiraffe on December 26, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Awww, love this! Too creative! When I saw the end, I thought you had the baby!? haha. Good luck!

  21. avery on December 26, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    Any day now! I’ll bet you are anxious to bring that lil girl home to the cozy nest you’ve been busy creating! I hope the back pain subsides!

  22. Mary on December 26, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    So excited for you, lovely!

  23. Karen on December 27, 2011 at 2:05 am

    I cannot recommend this article enough. It’s written by a midwife who is in her medical residency. It’s beautifully written, she calls herself a “rational radical”(!) and recants two recent births she assisted in- her DIL’s birth and a birth at the hospital while she was on duty.

    **NOT a horror story at all**

  24. Karen on December 27, 2011 at 2:05 am

    I meant to clarify that her DIL’s birth was a home birth.

  25. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on December 27, 2011 at 7:02 am

    So excited for you Gina! It could be any day now… πŸ˜€

  26. Juliette @ Finish Your Broccoli on December 28, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Good luck to you! Capricorns are the best πŸ™‚
