Watch Sesame Grow, week 28

Edition: I'm running out of new things to say
Size of baby: Sesame weighs about 2 1/4lbs. Just the other month he/she was the size of a kidney bean so somebody's been packing on the el bees!
Size of mother: I am not packing on the el bees. I weighed exactly the same (139) at today's appointment as I did last month. 
Fun fact: The above lead the doctor to say, "Look at that cute little belly! It's like you're not even pregnant!" If only I had a dollar for each time someone says that...

What's on the menu: Thursday I felt like eating carrot cake so I made one on Friday. I guess you could say I finally craved something. IT'S ABOUT TIME.
Worst part of the week: The nausea that never leaves and heartburn that's doing it's best to give the nausea a run for it's money.

Best part of the week: 1. The fact that the nausea is much more bearable than it was the first 6 months. Silver lining, folks!
2. Clothes that fit, especially the sweatpants I hold near and dear to my heart. 
Other things I have to say: Today I did my diabetes test. I was expecting the drink to be the worst thing I ever tasted because that's how everyone and their mother act about it, but it wasn't bad at all. Yet another pregnancy myth. 
Last but not least, Christopher has gained a little too much sympathy weight.

Can you call vegetable cake a craving? ;) Glad your stomach finally feels like eating FOOD. ANY FOOD. Also, so glad we're in agreement about the glucose test drink. "I almost gagged!" Well please don't drink a mountain dew, sister.

Honey nut cheerios with soy milk and blackberries gave me heartburn today. WTF is that? I think the 3 hour glucose drink is not a pregnancy myth. That stuff is terrible.
