36 WeeksActually, if you google the phrase that is this post’s title, you’ll get a bunch of news and fashion magazine articles from September 2008 reporting the findings of a perception psychologist at the University of York who ran a study that suggests that horizontal stripes actually make you look thinner.

Having a near full-term Homo sapiens parasite squirming around in your uterus, however, seems to counteract the thinness illusion.
36 Weeks

At 36 weeks, she’s e-nora-mous. Get it?

  • I think she looks beautiful. Thin is the last thing you want to be at 36 weeks!

  • I do too, of course. The midwife today said that she’s gained 4 lb. more than the ideal weight gain, but not to worry since her pre-pregnancy BMI was down at the limit where they disqualify supermodels for being too skinny.

    Everyone is convinced that this kid’s not gonna wait around for her due date. Impossible to know, of course.
