    I’m not a lush. Really.

    October 17th, 2010

    I’m a cheap date.

    I say this because typically one glass of wine is plenty for me. I don’t drink often, which is a major contributing factor to this too. So, why is it that during this pregnancy white wine seems to be one of the items I’m consistently craving? I stare longingly accross the table when S has wine with dinner.

    I haven’t been drinking, don’t worry, but I’ve made it very clear to S that I’m fully expecting a bottle of chilled Crios Torontes in the recovery room.

    I just hope the nurses don’t think I’m a lush.

    35 weeks

    October 17th, 2010

    How far along: 35w. (Oh, and 35 days to go)
    Weight: 151.6lb. By the way, HOLY growth spurt!!! If you look at my belly this week vs. last, major difference. Kinda explains the 2.5lb weight gain. Someone’s putting on the poundage. I just hope it’s the kid, not the mom.
    Measuring: 40.5″ across my widest point.
    Sleep: Good. Although I wish that I will stop waking up at 5:30 every morning, just ‘cuz.
    Gender: Nutsicles
    Movement: Calming down a bit, but still a wiggly worm.
    Feeling: Overall good, and progressively more excited about my next life transition here.
    Food cravings: It’s not food, but I want wine.
    Fetal development:
    Your baby doesn’t have much room to maneuver now that he’s over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds. Because it’s so snug in your womb, he isn’t likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same. His kidneys are fully developed now, and his liver can process some waste products. Most of his basic physical development is now complete — he’ll spend the next few weeks putting on weight.
