Eating for two

Breakfast: oatmeal

Mid-morning snack: many pieces of holiday chocolate

Acid reflux begins.

Lunch: Healthy vegetable soup

2 hours later, hunger returns. Contemplate what to eat to relieve hunger yet not aggravate the acid reflux.

Obvious solution: consume half a box (movie theater-sized) of Dots candy.

Half hour later: Search for Tums

I've obviously got this healthy pregnancy eating thing nailed.

a holiday riddle

What is over 10 feet tall, produces a cheerful glow, and wakes you up at 3:20 AM by making this noise: "WHOOSH! BOOM! pop! tinkle tinkle rattle tinkle..."??

That's right, it's my Christmas tree *falling over* mere hours after being fully decorated.

Luckily, we only lost one non-generic ornament, and the glass table the tree fell on escaped unharmed. The tree is now safely tethered to the wall. It's a little crooked, but we're not messing with it again.

It did not help that there was an ice storm last night. When you're lying awake in bed after an incident like that, the sound of ice pellets hitting the windows is eerily reminiscent of pine needles and glass shards falling upon wood floors and glass tables...

baby blabber

This past month has seen a massive expansion of the belly, which I know is on course to continue plumping up at full steam. I thought it was bad a few months ago when I knocked somebody's drink over with my boob, but I have now begun to inadvertently knock things over with my belly. I was emptying the dishwasher the other day and knocked several things over, including a full glass of water, as a reached up to put dishes into the cabinet.

In other news, the baby had its first case of hiccups yesterday, which was strange in that I'd been thinking about in utero hiccups and wondering if the baby would ever get them and if so, how I would know. It started out feeling like kicks, but when they repeated continuously at regular intervals for 10-15 minutes in the same spot, I figured it either had to be hiccups or else the baby had snuck one of these into the womb:

pregnancy comment of the week

Random 50-year old man at friend's holiday party: "Oh...that's a nice belly. Wow. Really a very nice one. I've seen a lot of pregnant women, but that is really just a beautiful belly. You really look beautiful. You have such a lovely glow."

Um, thanks. I'm sure your wife appreciated hearing that. I could really tell by the look on her face.

And thank you for not expanding your comments to include any thoughts on my tits.
