Size of baby: She’s the size of a butternut squash, according to the Ovia Pregnancy app on my phone.
Feeling: Okayish. Prenatal yoga has been helping to stretch out my achy parts, but at the same time, I haven’t done any kind of stretching in SO long that really, it’s making me sore in other places too. The other day I tried to convince Kyle to rip my legs off because my hip joints were hurting so bad. (He declined.) Other than that, I’ve been feeling pretty good.
Craving: Pi Day made me want pie, so on Monday I decided to whip up an apple pie. SO GOOD. I’ve also had a big craving for Vietnamese spring rolls, and was pretty sad that the place downtown where I used to get them at all the time was all out. Serves me right for stopping there after lunch. The hunt continues …
Other: I got the requisition for my glucose test at my prenatal appointment on Monday, so I’ll be doing that on Friday when Kyle’s home to watch Isla for the hour or so that I’ll be gone doing that. My regular doctor was away, so he had a locum filling in for him, and when the locum asked if I had my “sugar test” done yet and I told him no, he said to me, “Bad girl!” Umm … not my fault? Then when I asked him about what allergy pills were safe to take, he said he wasn’t 100% sure and that he’d look it up. I figured he’d bust out a medical dictionary or something but noooooope – he hopped on the computer and WebMD’d it. WHAT? Needless to say, I’m just going to hold off taking any pills until I either A) See my regular doctor again, or B) Ask a pharmacist. Ugh.
We’ve also decided on a middle name, so the baby officially will have a name when she arrives. Although the other night I had a dream that I gave birth to a boy when I was told it was a girl, haha. We have boy names picked out too, so you never know! Crazier things have happened. Isla would be happy if we named her baby sister “Ketchup” though. ;)

You look great! You can call Motherisk (out of Toronto Sick Kids Hospital) for advice on drugs while pregnant or breastfeeding. They’re awesome.
You look fantastic! Good luck on your Glucose test – I failed mine with Ellie and had to re-do it, the three hour version. On my birthday. It was horrible! Are you going to give us the first letter to try to guess Baby’s name?
You totally popped!! Your little shush is looking great!
Lol *squash not shush
