where'd you park the car?

I've really resisted the urge to make an Alien pregnancy comparison, but a girl can only hold out for so long. You knew it was coming.
Pregancy is three parts wondrous/awe-inspiring/miraculous, and one part science fiction.
Sometimes I'm legitimately startled to see my abdomen bouncing up and down or feel a tiny arm in my ribs. I half expect to be sitting at dinner with all my astronaut friends in our spaceship when suddenly baby will punch her way through my stomache and make a surprise appearance. Sigourney Weaver will be alarmed.
It doesn't help that as a child I believed babies came out through the belly button. And really, the truth isn't any less weird.

The good news is that not matter what Ivy looks like, she's bound to be cuter than this:



  1. you should have titled this post "don't open me if you're in the middle of eating a sandwich"

  2. Ha. Sorry. I hope you could finish the sandwich.

  3. amen on the alien thing. if i think about all this pregnancy stuff i just went through too hard, or if i come across the picture of my placenta again, ill totally freak myself out.

  4. I feel like I'm in on a joke that I don't actually get when I recognize your titles as lyrics.

  5. You have a picture of your placenta?

    And I should probably start giving my posts relevant titles.

  6. I'm so happy that this post evokes only nostalgia! The upside to being 50.

    Best wishes!


Don't be shy.
