Sorry, no pics from the rest of the weekend. The house is in full upheaval so it's hard to get near a mirror without a pile of crap or a construction worker…

The belly is getting big, as are the arms, the legs, the breasts, the chins… I was shocked to find out I only gained seven pounds this past month – it feels more (and looks more) like 20. Went to the midwife yesterday, all if fine and weight if fine, so I guess I shouldn't worry or stress about it. I just feel like a whale, and I now snore even if I drift off to sleep (happens when your breasts practically touch your chin). Barely anything fits – I have the two pairs of ponte pants from Old Navy and picked up another pair from Liz Lange for Target (not as thick or nice). At home I wear old pre-pregnancy yoga pants. A couple dresses fit but most are too short now to wear without leggings or tights. It's also too cold most days to walk around town in bare legs (I put on leggings with this outfit just to walk to work). Only a month left!

  1. Just went back to check out the link to your gray dress and can I just say how much I HATE anonymous above? As Alec Baldwin would say: you are a rude little pig! Please stop trolling on Allie’s blog. She is a glowing, fabulous mama.

  2. gross gross gross! Why do you insist on showing your huge pregnant whale stomach??? No more pictures until you squeeze out the spawn, pls. & I would definitely stay away from the color GRAY, orca

  3. Allie, as ever, you look fabulous but your blog appears to be having problems loading! Is this a problem anyone else has identified?

  4. Awww Allie, you look glowing and gorgeous! Only a few more weeks!

    (is it sad that I am kinda feeling the same way and i’m not even preggers?!? and I just ate some peanut butter m&m’s…)

  5. I love love love this dress – it’s not super heavy ponte but it’s perfect drape for a dress. I love this dress so much I have searched three Targets and online for the dress in black to no avail (dress still available in this gray color online).

    As for the lipstick on the cheeks… I have done it far in the past but don’t do it often. I just felt the blushes I had didn’t match the look right and I wanted a dewy look… got the job done! 🙂

  6. You still look great and put together. Two questions: What do you think about the quality of your Target dress? Just curious if you find it’s a substantial knit or skimpy. Also, did you mean you used the lipstick on your cheeks? I don’t recall you doing that before. Wondering why?

  7. And I forgot to say congratulations on now being full term! Hitting the 36-week milestone is a biggie. Now if little lady decides to come before she’s technically due, you know she is fully “baked.”

  8. Oh, honey, you are almost there! The end for some people is worse than the beginning (depending on whether or not one had morning sickness, etc). You look fantastic!
