Week: 29 weeks!
Size: Hello, little butternut squash! (So much better than a head of cabbage. Weight: 2 1/2 pounds, Length: a “tad” over 15 inches).
Name: Cappuchino Meredith (at least that’s what neighbor Mark called him today).
Gender: punching, kicking, somersaulting baby boy!
Maternity Clothes: From the mouth of (high school) babes this afternoon: “Well Cara, I’ve got to tell you, you really don’t look that chunky.” Why thank you! The girls then put their hands all over my belly and asked me to explain maternity jeans to them. No zippers – bomb.com!
Food Cravings: pretty much whatever I can get my hands on every other hour. Eating is my hobby.
Currently reading: Bringing Up Bebe, The Nursing Mother’s Companion + Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close for fun. (One friend this morning suggested I read some actual “what to expect from newborns” books, as to not be all prepped on pregnancy and birth, but then have little reference one the buddy arrives).
Most interesting fact: Honestly, nothing’s really stuck out in this week’s reading. On another note, did you know that fatigue returns in 3rd trimester? I successfully went to bed at 9.15 last night, and didn’t wake up until 7 this morning – yay for hibernation before sleep deprivation!
Feeling: like there’s a light at the end of the busy tunnel…
Missing: not being clumsy. fully articulating coherent sentences (damn you, pregnancy brain – where is my vocabulary?).
Anticipating: going to sleep tonite. Is it bad if I’m already excited to go to bed, and it’s only 8.15?0
