Yes, I'm still pregnant. Tomorrow I'll be 41 weeks pregnant. I really don't have much else to say other than I'm not surprised.
There's been a lot of reading, drawing, painting and playing with play dough these days. Yesterday, we made caterpillars which involved painting a strip of egg carton. Nothing fancy.
