Week: 26 weeks, and the little bugger is kicking and punching like CRAZY. There’s an alien growing inside me.
Size: 14 inches long and 1 and 2/3 pounds – he’s ginormous, and certainly classier this week, as he’s about the length of an English cucumber. Tea and crumpets, anyone?
Name: Little Caramel Meredith
Gender: bouncing baby boy!
Maternity Clothes: I am STOKED about the $2.98 maternity jeans mi mama found at Burlington Coat Factory in Oregon which fit PERFECTLY.
Food Cravings: Anything but the glucose drink I downed this morning.
Currently reading: The Nursing Mother’s Companion and book 2 of the Hunger Games series!!!
Most interesting fact: Did you know that you can get sent home early from your gestational diabetes screening if upon the second time they try and draw your blood, they unsuccessfully only extract an 8th of a vial from your wee little veins, and you subsequently vomit the pink drink 6x afterwards? Fact (and hence this morning’s test). Did you know that you can cut back on baby acne by drinking coconut milk? Fact (and I had some authentic baby coconut at a Vietnamese restaurant on Saturday). Did you know that the Hunger Games is so very addictive and really shouldn’t be read in the hour you’re trying to calm yourself down and fall asleep, because you’ll end up not sleeping that night? Fact (and thanks a bunch, Katniss).
Feeling: like resting and nesting is beginning!
Missing: My neighbors. More on that later.
Anticipating: making the gray-yellow-white baby room a reality!
So, my friends, how are YOU this evening?0
