The Pregnant Waddle

Pre-Pregnancy Weight Just Around the Corner (It's Trying to Run and Hide)

Tuesday, April 19, 2005


Staff development really soon--and pregnant mommies must not neglect any available bathroom-visiting moments--but here's yesterday, synthesized:

* Red goo not forgotten. Drunk, in fact, and wasn't all that bad (I'd actually recommend the Fruit Punch flavor, if one must take the glucose test). Small hysteria involving unexpectedly low freezing point of said goo (remember that it was supposed to be "better tolerated" cold? I stuck it in the freezer to chill, and IT FROZE SOLID). Fortunately, microwaves and calm husbands exist.

* Squidgle, most obligingly, has already turned upside-down: GOOD baby!

* The ultrasound techie, however, was less obliging and had taken the day off. So, no pictures. Alas.

* Imagine the biggest sugar high after the most profitable Halloween candy haul of your life. Then imagine coming down off that high. Such was I. Jitter, jitter, jitter in the car on the way to the doctor's; yawns and crankitude all the way home. I didn't begin to feel even remotely normal again until after supper.

* We have friends coming to stay for a couple of days. We cleaned the house. The house is clean.

* It's a good thing only one of us is pregnant. The dear husbandlet bustled around cleaning busily; I would put away two pairs of underwear and then have to rest for a while. Not that I'm doubting my contribution to the house's cleanliness, of course . . . that underwear stayed PUT.

OK, off to be developed. I wonder if there will be food.

Um, unexpectedly low freezing point --> freezing more quickly than expected? Hmmm....
