We heard your heartbeat today! You are really, really real! Your heartbeat was so quick and it sounded so strong. The midwife, Ellie, moved the wand over a little so you could hear the difference between my heartbeat, slow and loud, and yours, that sounded like the galloping of tiny ponies. I thought I would cry, but I was just so excited and your dad and I high-fived instead of crying. We made you and we know we made you good.
Meanwhile, here I am, eating watermelon, because you definitely wanted watermelon. In fact, I have to ask you something. Did you come to me in my dreams as a small girl and tell me how much you really wanted watermelon? Whoever it was in the dream I was so astonished at how much I, too, wanted watermelon. Mmmm… I think it helps how dehydrated I’ve been. I’m so thirsty and sometimes water gets SO old. I really wanted Newman’s Own lemonade juice boxes to bring to school, but the grocery store didn’t have them. Disappointment! And I thought that my biggest difficulty was going to be deciding between classic yellow or pink. (I actually probably would have gotten both if there had been the option.)
Now I need to work on getting more iron. Since meat is disgusting to my pregnant stomach right now, Ellie said I should eat a teaspoon of molasses every day. Hhmmm, I’ve never had straight-up molasses, but I’m pretty sure it will be difficult to swallow and I will gag and puke. I’ll let you know how that goes.
Good night little BB. I need to go choose appropriate attire for the classroom. Something high-cut. Things are getting awful tight.
