Bumpwatch: Week 18

by - Sunday, June 22, 2014

How Far Along: 18 Weeks! Apparently the baby is the side of a sweet potato, which I personally find overrated, but maybe Bumbo Baby will like them? 

Best Moment of the Week: We got our first thing for Bumbo's room! We are doing a steampunk travel theme, in hope that the child will eventually become an inventor of those great early flying machines. We hope to raise as historically anachronistic a child as possible (eat that, Jameson). So, we bought a yellow Victorian hot air balloon, and The Boy even got to open it on Father's Day, s that was really cool!

Most Interesting Prego Quirk: The belly has arrived, but it looks like my previously established gut is being pushed open like a garage door. I always thought other pregnant women looked gorgeous, but now that I am going through it myself, it really trips me up.

I Would Really Like Some: I would really like to stop eating salmon now, thank you. The Boy is still pushing it, because he wants the baby to be brainy, but I am over it. Even pre-pregnancy, I would just turn on food, and I have majorly turned on salmon. I basically only want sweets, but I am fighting that because I know taste buds and such are developing right about now.
Bizarro Thing No One Warned me About: You need to drink your weight in water. Everyone talks about how hungry you get, which is true, but you also get so thirsty, and I can really feel the difference when I don't get enough water: I even get leg cramps from it, which doesn't make any sense. Water becomes serious business when you are baking something in your oven.

And The Boy?:He read that Bumbo can hear me now, and that sometime soon it should start to hear him, so he has started to sing to it. Mostly, he sings about how he is the best singer in the world. I think he would like our spawn to think he is the height of musical talent. He also mostly sings pop covers, so he is kind of like the Weird Al of narcissism and an overinflated sense of musical prowess.

Looking Forward to: We have a doctor's appointment next week, so I am really happy to hear how our spawn is doing and to set up the next ultrasound. Also, I am looking forward
