Actually, the muumuu will probably be necessary not just for fit but for coolness. Today is the first day it has actually been truly warm and springlike, and I was already absolutely burning up (unusual for me) even though I only had on jeans, flats, and short sleeves. Is Miss Jackson part furnace? Being hugely pregnant in July should be interesting. Thank goodness for flip-flops.

Miss Jackson Feels Enormous, and Warm.
So, several weeks ago, I was so ready to be visibly pregnant, with an obvious baby bump, and not just feel large and in charge. When my belly popped out, I was delighted. (It felt like it happened suddenly over the course of like three hours, which was surprising but wonderful.) And I still love feeling and looking pregnant, but Nora and I were just emailing yesterday about how on earth are we going to get four months larger? I am still comfortable now -- I'm not having trouble sleeping or getting up off the sofa or getting in the car or anything, but I also can't really imagine getting progressively bigger and bigger and BIGGER over the next sixteen weeks. I told Nora I supposed I would just wear pajama pants all the time and slip on a muumuu when I was forced to leave the house. I'm not complaining, I promise -- just sort of wondering, I guess, what it's going to be like.
