Pregnancy might be easier if I were a mermaid: memoirs from a bathtub

142 days till I snuggle your little baby face off!

Dear Baby Deklan, 

              I think getting out of the bathtub would no longer be a problem. Plus, I imagine there might be less backaches and muscle strains. I could swim around in the warm water all day and never have to worry about fitting into my clothes. Maybe mermaids would mate like seahorses and the male could carry the baby around for a bit. Or better yet, I could lay an egg that I could trade off caring for with Joel or set it down while I feel "normal" for a bit. Boobs would probably stay perky longer, too (sorry, kid). I was just thinkin'....

      Love,
                 Mom.
