We’re thrilled to announce the presence of a fully formed human being currently residing in my lower abdomen! Little Dometrius or Loquisha now has everything, including fingerprints. FINGERPRINTS! Now S/he will be hanging out for another 27 weeks- just growing and chilling. Waiting to make the grand appearance.
According to Babycenter.com, baby is the size of a shrimp.
I think shrimp are scary looking. Ask my mom about the Freak Shrimp we accidentally ordered at a very famous seafood restaurant in New Orleans. It was a little traumatic. And delicious. But mostly traumatic. I digress.
Babycenter.com also states that THIS is my last week in the first trimester. Everyone else (that I choose to listen to) says I’m OUT! I have chosen to completely disregard Babycenter.com this week. Who’s with me??
On that note, baby is 3 inches long and the size of a small peach. Peaches are all cute and fuzzy. Not traumatic in the least!
So here I am, in my 2nd trimester! Feeling good. I definitely have a little bump going, and have started to gain weight. Eating is very fun again, and I’m back in full culinary force. =)
So here we go! Grow, baby, GROW!
