Are You Ready for Some Football?

Football season is now officially in full swing. It is cloudy and cool here today, which makes it feel even more like football season. And B is making chile for dinner. Nothing like curling up on the couch in sweats with no make-up for the day. The only draw back is that I'm uncomfortable in my own skin! Can't sit in one position for longer than 10 minutes to save my life. Oh well. My little occupants are just as squirmy this morning!

We went to dinner last night at this place. It was my first time there after hearing people just rave about the place. Everything we had was really good, but I didn't eat much of my entree. I must have filled up on the bread, appetizers and gazpacho. I'm not usually one for cold soup, but the gazpacho was really tasty.

Did anyone watch SN.L last night? Tin.a Fe.y was hilarious as SP! It is such a perfect fit. I wonder if she has been automatically imitating her since Mc.Cain's announcement? Or if she just had to study her mannerisms this week. Either way, it was great! Even the accent. Is it just me, or does SP sound a bit like she's from Minnesota?

One more week until the next ultrasound. I have this irrational (at least I hope it's irrational) fear that I'm only feeling one move and the other one is in trouble. Why do these thoughts keep creeping into my head? I keep trying to push them away as soon as they pop up, but the thoughts still come back. I wish I had better control of my own brain.

Oh yeah, and my pre.natal crad.le came on Thursday last week. I L.O.V.E. it. It has definitely helped with the soreness and I'm walking much better now. It does kind of look like a weird contraption, but it is mostly hidden under clothes (other than the straps at the top that tend to peek out of my shirts. There is one other version that is *more* supportive, but it looks like a jock strap was added on to the original. It might have helped more with the pelvic pain (or evil crotch pain, as Nancy calls it), but it just freaked me out.

Here is the latest belly shot as of yesterday, which was 22w2d. I've got the cradle on in the pictures and I was sportin my Illini orange yesterday. For some reason the shots are a little fuzzy when I use the timer on the camera and the lighting is funky. Oh well.

I promise, I'm laughing with you, not at you! The twin girdle should go down in posterity as "all this money I spent on infertility and I end up with a sling!"

I always say my husband married the wrong girl. He is in the basement doing the football thing and I am not even close to interested. I am glad you enjoy it though!

You definitely have the pregnant belly now! So cute!! And I am glad the cradle is bringing you some comfort.

I'm laughing at Melanie's comment!

It's been football all weekend here. I'm ok with it on the weekends, but when it creeps into the week, I get annoyed.

I'm sorry I missed Tina Fey! She's hilarious!

Fall is absolutely the best time of year - I love it!

And wow - that is one crazy contraption. I've never heard of the prenatal cradle much less seen one. YAY for feeling better!

Go Broncos!

Love Cafe Brazil. And loved the Palin/Clinton skit, too. It took me a few minutes to figure out if it was Tina or Sarah.

Your belly is so cute!

Antigone said...

You look so much more pregnant than I do. I'm jealous.

Nice cradle. :-)

Io said...

Heehee! The track suit makes the belly thing look like some sort of athletic pregnancy cup. Like you're about to compete in the Prego Olympics...
T.Fey makes my life better. Seriously, she was perfect. And yeah, I've wondered about Palin's accent - it does sound like she's Minnesota or North Dakota or something. But maybe that's just Alaska - I don't think I know anyone from there.

You look fantastic! I love the cradle thing - it actually looks comfortable. I remember being pregnant with our youngest daughter and I was so huge & uncomfortable - this would have come in handy!

Football season...ahhhh Nothing better than watching Football with your honey in the Fall. :)

Jennifer said...

You look great with twins at 22 wks...even with that sexy cradle! :)

The Bears lost (sadly)...they really bit it in the 2nd half, huh?

paula said...

LOVE the cradle! I hope it helps. Every day is a day closer to meeting Apple and Banana!
Yes, I got hooked on you through G & K. G is my cousin.
