    Don’t blame the baker

    October 2nd, 2010

    I don’t know why but over the last week I’ve gotten a bunch of comments from people that go something like this:

    “So you must be due very soon, right?”

    When I tell them that I have another month and a half to go, they look at me with bewilderment.

    Am I THAT big people? I mean I know I stick out a lot, but I don’t feel that I look disproportionate for a(n almost) 33 week pregnant lady.

    I mean, come on: you don’t blame the baker for how tall the souffle rises!

    I’ve decided to hold my hang out and ask for a penny every time someone says this expecting a response. I bet I can subsidize S2’s college fund by the end of November.

    32 weeks

    September 26th, 2010

    How far along: 32w
    Weight: 147.2lb
    Sleep: Not much changed here. I do find it interesting, though, that my pelvic pain is worst and sharpest at night. What’s up with that? I’m not even moving.
    Gender: Aw, nuts!
    Movement: Still re-inacting Alien… or attempting to anyway.
    Feeling: Good, but pissy. It has nothing to do with S2. Just the weather. It’s damn frikkin’ hot and heat + pregnancy = me extra bitchy. Sorry y’all.
    What I miss: Right now? Feeling cold. Cool even. And patient. I also miss sleeping on my belly and wine. A chilled Pino Grichio sounds amazing right around now… and I’m not even a big drinker.
    Food cravings: Nothing. It’s too damn hot to eat. Could be why I’ve only gained .5lb over last week (although I’m enjoying that part. My weight gain feels well in check thus far)
    Fetal development:
    By now, your baby weighs 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You’re gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby. In fact, he’ll gain a third to half of his birth weight during the next 7 weeks as he fattens up for survival outside the womb. He now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair (or at least respectable peach fuzz). His skin is becoming soft and smooth as he plumps up in preparation for birth.
