The Majestic Blue Whale

The blue whale is the largest animal ever known to have existed. These majestic mammals of the sea were once abundant in all oceans on Earth; until the twentieth century when they became hunted to near extinction. However, some blue whales have been able to conquer the troubles associated with weighing over 180 metric tons by surviving in our contemporary world.

Eat your heart out people. Cuz' you know that's all I've been doing the past nine months.
Swollen has reached a new definition in my vocabulary and I'm more ready than ever to deliver this baby.
(And hopefully get rid of the elephantiasis in my feet)

Oh my gosh, I so know how you feel! It's hard to even remember what it was like not to be swollen all the time... don't worry, you'll be back to normal soon, and it will all have been worth it!!

Syd! You are still so cute! I LOVE it! Thanks for posting a picture for us peeps who don't get to see you often! Good luck!

Hi syd! your poor feet! I'm so sorry. Maybe that's why they say "barefoot and pregnant" because no shoes fit, so you just walk around barefoot:(
I had swollen feet too, and face (bleh) but that was due to Pre-eclampsia. You probably don't have that though, they would've found out by now, but bless your heart. I hope all goes well with the delivery. We are so excited for your little snickerdoodle!

You are the cutest blue whale I've seen and I don't even like animals. I can see Tina has been taking great care of you. I can't WAIT to meet lil snickerdoodle. Keep on baking--she's almost here.

Honey--those are some nasty feet. I'm so, so sorry! It makes my ankles hurt just looking at them. When labor gets tough, hopefully you can get a good view of those ankles and receive a bit more motivation! Ha!
Seriously, I cannot wait to hold your little baby! I feel like I haven't held a baby in forever! (I'm especially excited that it's blood related but not mine!)
Hang in there!

While those are some seriously chubby feet, don't worry, you'll be back in shape in no-time.

Hi :)I'm Amy. I definitely stumbled onto your blog and love it! Normally I'm a blog creep that just reads and appreciates but I feel like we would be pals or something. Plus, we got married EXACTLY a year apart. That's magic. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl! I felt kind of weird commenting on her birth story since this is the first time I've ever seen your blog but it needed to be said. :) I'm sure I'll be back to say hi. And you can check out my semi-entertaining blog if you'd like
