"Float, float on"~ The Floaters
So, here are a few pregnancy updates because you're just dying to know and I like to give the people what they want.
Symptoms: A bit of mild cramping from round ligament pain and occasional lower back pain, but nothing bad. The old rubber band is on its last legs with my jeans. On to leggings! Also, exacerbated seasonal allergies. I've now given up and taken Zyrtec twice in the last week.
Cravings: Hard-boiled eggs (especially deviled egg sandwiches), walnut bread, chocolate milkshakes, blueberries, kale (well, not exactly any kale, but this kale and chickpea salad they have at Whole Foods which is super yum and makes me feel okay about having milkshakes)
Aversions: Anything too acidic, especially vinegar-y salad dressing
Weight gain: Other people actually put this on their pregnancy blog posts. I don't think I can do it -- it just seems like TMI and also jinxing myself because I'll probably become ashamed at the weight gain after one too many milkshakes.
Growing baby: Now the size of a bell pepper but feeling more like a wee tadpole swimming around in my belly. Which is all kinds of wonderful. Those first movements are the best.
Counting down: 2 more weeks until the big ultrasound! I can't stand it. How do people wait until the actual birth? I'm such a weakling.
