where i end and you begin

I've been doing homework and working for two days straight, which is tiring, but at least I've finally gotten some things done. I've done the article review journal for my reading class, and I have the presentation for it on Tuesday. I've done the last response paper for my film class. I've written an artist's statement for my ceramics class. I still have to make five mugs, three pitchers, and seven bowls. The last wet clay day is Tuesday, so we'll see how that goes. I still have to do the ten page research paper for my film class, but I've started the research and done an annotated bibliography for that. 
I don't want to jinx us, not that I necessarily think life works that way, but Scott and I have been getting along really well lately. Maybe we're just getting more comfortable in our marriage. Our house is a complete wreck right now, with both of us scrambling at the end of the semester, but soon it will be over and I'll be able to see the coffee table and kitchen table again. At least we've managed to stay on top of dishes. 
For baby stuff, the good news is that I've finally gained some weight. I plateaued for a few months, but I'm at 128 (in all my clothes and with shoes) now. That's compared to my pre-pregnancy weight of 116, so I'm doing alright. I have thrown abandon to the wind when it comes to what I eat now, but surprisingly people are still saying that I look thin, except for my belly. Oh who cares. Body image is just so deeply engraved in all of us, that it's hard to shake, even when you know it doesn't matter, because what matters now is that the baby is healthy. Anyhow. 
I'm totally in love with my husband, more every day. And we find out if it's a boy or a girl on May 7th.

first and foremost... ignore this person called servidores. I've seen this exact same message left on my blog, only under a different name. It's just an advertisement. Grrr

Second, wow. I'm so happy for you! I love that you and Scotty are drawing nearer to each other... how important that is! It makes my heart sore, but in a good way.

Third, women with curves are absolutely, deliciously, gorgeous! And you, my dear, will be gorgeous all your life. I will love to see you in your many bodily changes- through motherhood, through middle age, through old age.... beautiful, beautiful always.
I love you
