cravings & such: well, i have just acquiesced at this point. i am a lame preggo. no shocking cravings. nothing. just the usual lineup. i do really enjoy a cheeseburger and fries with a shake. and i love ice cream. and cheese. and pizza. but, that isn't exactly news. sigh. oh well, if my only complaint is that this pregnancy has been business as usual, i am pretty blessed.
the bump: feeling more bowling ball like these days. since elinor is gaining almost half a pound a week at this point, the belly is growing right along with her.
cool & cute things: little miss weighs about 3.75 pounds and is about 16.7 inches long. she will gain a third to half of her birth weight during the next seven weeks as she fattens up for survival outside the womb.
new things: baby girl now has toenails, fingernails, and real hair [or at least respectable peach fuzz]. her skin is becoming soft and smooth as she plumps up and loses her wrinkled appearance.
meaningful moments: scheduling an appointment with a pediatrician. scheduling our hospital tour. this is happening folks.
the countdown: 56 days to go!
current size: weight of a large jicama. funny, she feels much heavier...
