The Last Hurrah -or- You Know You're Pregnant When...


I have never been a major Star Trek fan, especially of the original series. I can appreciate it, and I did watch many many Next Generation episodes with my dad. But as soon as I saw the trailer, I knew I'd want to see the prequel movie that came out this weekend. I remember watching the trailers, and the date it would be released and wondering if I'd be able to catch the movie before this baby was born. Well, we made it. Troy and I don't go out on a whole lot of dates with just the two of us, but we pulled this one together. For one thing, my sister's girls have grown up and become great babysitters. We hired the eldest for the evening. She even put my kids to bed, the super girl! We called our friends, the Mayfields, and bought our tickets a week ago. And lo and behold, we made it out on a date. Dinner at Biaggi's in the gateway and then Star Trek. I am not sure if Troy and I will make it out on the town again pre-baby, so we were so excited for this fun evening. It really was fun. I have promised my brother to say NOTHING about the show, so I won't review it here. I do have to tell you that at the very beginning of the show there is a rather traumatic birth scene and I just had to laugh at myself. I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant because I sobbed through the whole thing. This is STAR TREK, right? Action/Adventure? SciFi? Not a lot of girly stuff going on. I couldn't help it. I had tears pouring down my face. I have a head cold so I'm pretty stuffy, and my nose decided to drain right then and there, and throughout the remainder of the show. Luckily Misty had some baby wipes in her purse or I would have had to leave the theater. Funny. Great movie, and that's all I'm going to say.

Doesn't that always happen when you're pregnant? I haven't seen this movie yet...but the last time I was pregnant I rushed to the theater to see Star Wars III right before my baby came...and of course there is a traumatic birth scene there too. Of course I KNEW that one was coming.

Any signs of the little one yet? We're thinking of you and hoping all goes well and sooner rather than later!
