Size: our little ear of corn is over a pound now! Bam!
Name: Little Caramel Meredith
Gender: bouncing baby boy!
Maternity Clothes: I think it’s the funniest when, with some clothes, people can’t ALL the way tell if there’s a bun in the oven. The belly definitely sticks out, but some things accentuate it more than others. The best is when I run into an acquaintance whom I haven’t seen in awhile; the conversation usually goes something like this: “So, Cara, how…are…you…doing?” (chewing on words while staring at belly). “Good! I’m great! And you?” I know that I should insert the whole “Oh, did you know we’re expecting?” question into the reply, but I like messing with their minds even more, and they know it’s too awkward to ask if I’m actually pregnant. Now that’s funny.
Food Cravings: Beer battered fish tacos. Stat! Arriba, arriba!
Currently reading: The Science of Parenting – it WILL be finished by the end of the week, I’m determined!
Most interesting fact: From the above book, I found it absolutely interesting (and perhaps highly controversial, I’m not sure), but if a parent can detect autism in an infant or baby before the age of 2, then there have been studies in Israel and France in which if together the child & parent(s) undergo an intensive 3-week program, the autism can be ELIMINATED. I mean, that’s crazy! Your thoughts?
Feeling: that it’s all about the attitude. And I choose to have a good one.
Missing: non-cankles. It’s a love-hate relationship. I need to go on walks and not be sitting as to not get all cankle-d, but then I’m tired and need to sit, so I try to prop the feet up, but I still end up with cankles. Love-hate, love-hate.
Anticipating: Having to fast for the gestational diabetes test soon – say it ain’t so! Fasting for at least two hours? My food-driven body is crying out in pain already.
