Week 39

Week 39 is about being pulled downwards to the earth. Everything in my body stoops and drags with gravity. My back valiantly arches to offset the load in front, but it's got about 15 minutes of patience left in it.

Week 39 is also about eyes widening when my reply to, "when are you due?" is "in about 5 days". Lots of people glance down quickly as though my water might break on the spot.

It's also the point when you get a certain look from other women, even old ladies, as they watch me waddle and struggle and sweat. I can tell I'm sparking memories for them.

Child, the lease is almost up. Start making arrangements.

Risa, my child promises to be very stubborn. I'm betting I don't have any big news for at least a week.
