Comfy Elastic Waistband
Want to Wear Always
I had a doctor appointment today so some quick stats:
Fetus: about 5 in., 5 oz.
Veggie Equivalent according to BabyCenter: Onion
Waist: 37 inches
Weight: Still not that bad
Not too much to report out of the doctor's office. Pretty boring appointment, no new pictures but I did get to hear the heartbeat so that was cool. I was also given permission to eat meat that is medium rare so I can stop trying to choke down well done steaks and burgers. It's still not raw the way I like it but it's good enough for now.
Thank god, I am not Keira. I only had to have one vial of blood taken. So far no adverse health effects. I will totally be punished for this later I am sure.
My next appointment is on August 6th and I will be having another ultrasound then. We should be able to find out the sex of the baby at that time. If we can, we will. Why, you may ask? Because I am ridiculously impatient, that's why. I hate surprises and people keep asking me. We may not even need it because according to Bruce's hockey friend Jeff, we are having a girl. Jeff says he has not been wrong in the last six years. He has 4 girls and one boy and his sister has 3 boys so he has had quite a bit of practice. So there ya go, Jeff says we are having a girl. Oh and Jeff's Dad grew up in Westfield. How weird is that?
Oh, you may be wondering about the poem. Although I am not really big yet, I went out and bought some pants during a visit to the awesome outlet mall in Gurnee. My regular pants, although wearable, were not particularly comfortable. I have always liked to wear my clothes on the loose side anyways. But hot damn people, I am in love with elastic waisted pants. Who knew I was secretly my grandma. The two pairs of jeans I bought even look cool enough to wear all the time. I just may do that. Stretchy pants are where it's at for me.
