Week: 27 weeks…um, that means 3rd trimester is officially here this FRIDAY. How’d that happen?
Size: He’s not that much longer (about 14.5 inches long), but the little bugger is nearly 2 pounds! And pregnancy.com just equated my baby to a head of cauliflower. Now I can’t help but picture cauliflower ear via high school wrestling mats on perfection growing inside. Ew.
Name: Little Caramel Meredith. (So, if you haven’t guessed, we’re not telling the name beforehand. It’s the best secret of my life at this point).
Gender: bouncing baby boy!
Maternity Clothes: in case you’re wondering, I can still wear heels. Not that I should be wearing heels, but looking nice for the hub’s birthday is a rare, short-lived exception that I can manage for 3 hours.
Food Cravings: BLTA’s – and we just had them for dinner. I think I was over-mayonnaised as a child, but the craving came back in full-force this evening. More, more!
Currently reading: The Milk Memos – awesome for moms who are planning on going back to work after the baby comes, and breastfeeding at that. (Okay, and also the 3rd book of the Hunger Games series…).
Most interesting fact: I’ve quickly found out from mama-friends in other states that California’s three-hour gestational diabetes test is a little redunkulous. Friends in other states, what have you had to do? Ours is blood draw…wait a half hour (and, if approved), drink the nasty Kool-aid…wait an hour, blood draw #2…wait another hour, blood draw #3. The good news is that my OB saw the light, and allowed me to just have a hemoglobin draw this morning. Yippee!
Feeling: let the resting and nesting commence.
Missing: sleeping on my stomach. I need to go to the beach right about now and dig a belly-hole. Mmm.
Anticipating: an extended Easter weekend in Mississippi in just three days! I’ve decided I need to buy a big, floppy hat to wear on Easter Sunday at what is sure to be the craziest Resurrection celebration I’ve ever attended (i.e.: a big ol’ black church in the South…need I say more?)
What are you doing for the holiday this Sunday?0
