Pregnancy Blog Week 22 – A Hug from Ryan Reynolds!
Have we talked about how much water consumption and peeing goes on during pregnancy yet? Because if we haven’t, I am sure BY NOW you are wondering if I have ever even been pregnant before. I can promise you I have, and I am listening to that beautiful child crying about a leaf she just pulled off the bush outside our house as I type. (I am sure we will have to bury said leaf and I will have to make a burial speech in a few minutes. Yes, babies and pregnant women do have a few things in common, emotions being one of them.)
Anyway, pregnant women drink water ALL THE TIME. Water to a pregnant woman is the equivalent of Ryan Reynolds opening his arms for a strong hug. You want it. You need it. You have to have it no matter how many calls you have to make.
At the Japanese Steakhouse in town while pregnant, I once consumed eight 16 ounce glasses of water before they brought us our soup and salad. I was in the bathroom the majority of dinner. I started calling myself the Official Wasabi Bathroom Greeter. People did fall for it, or they were just being extremely humorous towards a pregnant lady.
Also. SPAGHETTI SQUASH!!! Your baby is the size of that vegetable really fit people pretend to eat spaghetti with. I have never actually seen a real one (still don’t believe it is a thing) but I know squashes are a pretty decent size! Congrats 🙂
Baby is up to: Actually looking like a mini newborn, with the development of eyes and lips!
Tip of the week: Not freaking out about the changes your body is making. A lot of women call stretch marks “tiger stripes” and a lot of other fun things because the fact of the matter is it is freaking awesome to carry a baby and earn some battle wounds. Some women get them, some don’t…no matter what kind of woman you are, your body is doing something way cooler than a man’s body right now.
