38 1/2 weeks pregnant: My last dance hurrah

So I will be the first to admit it: at 39 weeks here, I love being pregnant.  Yes, there is acid reflux, yes, my lower back hurts, yes, I have to get up several times a night to pee. But I love the feel of my belly, the feel of my baby moving, the emotional high of carrying something so precious.  I revel in pregnancy, I savor it, I take many many pictures (I blog about it here at Baby Bouteneff).  I have felt good for my pregnancy and I want to have my baby no sooner than 40 weeks because I want to eek every moment out of pregnancy.  I know already, I am going to miss it.

So the Friday night before my 39th week, we have friends over for dinner, play games, and when they leave, a song comes on our stereo which makes me decide to give a final crazy pregnancy dance, because you never know when little baby will make his appearance (and he does appear only 5 days after this video).  So no, I am not showing my best moves here, but I am showing my dramatic moves, and so I share.  Because dancing with baby doesn't have to start post-womb.

My womb-baby gets a taste now with Sister Hazel's "Champagne High."  Which I feel like I have been on for months. Minus the champagne...

How did you enjoy dancing while pregnant?
