What's With All These Hiccups?

So I literally get the hiccups just about every day now - it's so odd.� Sometimes I get them multiple times a day, though they usually only last for about two or three hiccups at a time.� Obviously my first thought about it was,

"Well, pregnant ladies must just get hiccups more frequently for some strange reason, probably for the same reason pregnant women get weird cravings for things like pickles and ice cream."

Honestly, though, I can't find any explanation on the Internet about being preggers and getting hiccups!� Although, funny enough, there are tons and tons of search results addressing the fact that babies are known to get hiccups in utero (how adorable!).� I must be the only crazy pregnant lady who doesn't really suffer from the common weird pregnancy side effects (i.e. cravings for pickles and ice cream, morning sickness, etc.) and instead makes up her own quirky ones.

I have a dr. appointment on Monday, so maybe she can shed some light on my hiccuping situation.� I'll keep you posted.� Until then, I'm off to the Jersey shore this weekend to enjoy some fun in the sun and to model my new maternity bathing suit from Target!

Hooray For Body Pillows!

So I just got back from a super long walk and, man, am I wiped!� James keeps saying we should go for more walks, and yeah, I know exercise is good for pregnant women, but I'm thinking four miles was a little much.

On the bright side, I did make out with a pretty comfy body pillow from Bed Bath & Beyond, which is going to make sleeping on my side much easier.� My regular-sized pillows just haven't been cutting it lately.

In other news, today marks my 19th week, and apparently Baby Lump should be about 10 inches long now.� A little strange considering he/she was only supposed to be six inches last week, but apparently this week is when they start measuring babies with their legs included (before this week, they were only measured from crown-to-rump) - interesting!

Enjoy this funny, three-headed baby cartoon from Baby Gaga until my next post.

Maternity Pants: Not JUST for Expecting Mothers

I had a fun little pregnancy milestone today: I broke out and wore my maternity jeans for the first time.� Let me tell you - you've been missing out.� I can't stress how incredibly comfortable maternity pants are.

I actually encourage every woman to invest in a pair for the sole purpose of wearing during major food consumption holidays - Thanksgiving, Christmas, the Super Bowl.� Not a huge investment either - I bought mine on sale for only $14.99 at Old Navy (be careful though; not all Old Navy stores have maternity sections).� I bet you it'd be completely worth your money.� No need to unbutton your pants when your waste band stretches to accommodate your growing belly - whether it be full of baby or full or turkey.� Just a thought.

I'm also 18 weeks today, which means Baby Lump weighs between five to seven ounces and is almost six inches long.� To stick with the food metaphor, this means he/she is about the size of a deli pickle.

Why do I have a craving for ice cream all of a sudden?� I kid, I kid.� ;o)
