Well, all I can say is I didn’t gain weight but I didn’t lose either. I actually stayed the same. I figure that’s not horrible with Thanksgiving and all plus the night before, Sarah, the wasband and I went to Grumpy’s pub to see the band that played at Sarah’s wedding. We had a good time. Didn’t stay late and only had two drinks but that is probably about 5 points. Add that to Thanksgiving day and you’ve got no weight loss.
I have to step up the weight loss now so I can have my new knee done in March. That will give me three months to recover before baby is born.
I’m going to have to be in shape!
One thing I forgot to mention was the due date. The baby is due on my birthday, June 9th. Sarah’s Doctor came up with June 10th but I found a website online and it came up with June 9th so that’s what I am telling everyone.
Obie’s grandfather and brother share their birthday on June 12th. I’m hoping it will be born on my birthday but it would be cool too to have it born on it’s great grandfather’s birthday and it’s uncle’s.
I’m also tired of calling it–IT. Sarah and Obie want to know the gender but we have to wait until sometime in January for that. I, personally, don’t care what it is as long as it is human and not some alien. I will be happy though we did call my son “alien piggy” when he was little.
When I was little I referred to myself as Noni and most of my relatives called me Noni. We’ve decided it will make a good grandma’s name. I don’t really want to be called Grandma or Nana anyway and I certainly don’t want to be called Granny. We have also decided to have Barry be called Bubba. We have many times referred to him as Bubba so it will fit right in.
The kids are still discussing names for it but I think they want to find out the gender before they really decide.

You are currently in week 12. Your little one is around two whole inches long and their head is starting to lift a bit as their neck straightens. What’s more they’re practicing breathing using amniotic fluid and they’ve developed their sucking reflexes. As for you, your pregnancy is now becoming a fact which others can observe without you telling them that no, you’re not just putting on a bit of weight.
Museditions just asked a good question on my last post about the baby. Where are we going to put the little wee one?
The kid’s basement apartment
The above is a crude drawing I just did on Paint. My goodness, using Paint is like using an Etch-A-Sketch. I was never good at that. I hated Etch-A-Sketches. Obviously I can’t draw at all. Anyway, where it says baby is part of their storage room. They will put up walls and a floor and ceiling and ventilate the air. The room will be small but this way the baby can be downstairs with them when they are home. They will be able to fit a crib and a bureau in it. Otherwise they would have to kick out Barry and use his room on my floor and they don’t want to do that. We actually like having the wasband around. I once posted photos of their apartment downstairs here. It’s really nice.
Well, that’s it for now. I am going to settle down in my room and crochet.
