The parasite

by statia on August 23, 2006

If I thought that low blood sugar sucked when I wasn’t pregnant, it’s 567 times worse now and thankfully, the ick is tapering off at a pretty good clip because I had french toast sticks for breakfast and nearly a whole small pizza for lunch. Anyone want to get in on a pool for how much weight I’m going to gain by the time this whole thing is over?

We had another ultrasound this morning with our OB. I long dream of the pants on kind, but I’m beginning to think that these people that say you get to keep your pants on for an ultrasound are liars, because “pants on” ultrasounds is just an urban legend. I mean, I see the wands on the machine and I see the “warm goo”, but I think it’s just for show.

I’ve also decided that if the parasite is a boy, he’s most certainly gay (not that there’s anything wrong with that) because s/he was dancing up a storm. Which means that even if it is a boy, I can still dress him in pink and get away with it and I know the meester won’t have to take Homocil to deal with it.

Oooooh, did you get any pictures??

Weight gain: I gained 90 pounds with the 1st and 65 with the 2nd. Now that was some serious eating!

I think someone is f-ing with you at the OBs office. You should be far enough along to get the pants on scan.

@Stephanie – until about 18-20 weeks along, there are no guarantees. Blue can very much hide itself as pink until those testicles fully descend and then “surprise!” I know a literal handful of friends who had to return clothing and more during a third-trimester follow-up u/s.
