Slow but steady



Well, not much visible belly growth from 18 to 22 weeks. If you look closely, you can see the waistline getting less pronounced, and the belly sticking out further at 22 weeks than at 18 weeks in relation to the bust…the picture is cut off on the right the same in both, but the belly on the right is about to touch the edge. But yeah, hard to see a noticeable difference at this point.

Nutella and I were having a conversation the other night about the glucose test. One of the books we’re reading says if you don’t want to drink the orange drink, maybe you can try 18 large jelly beans or a large portion of apple juice. We’re guessing the OB will not let Nutella do such a thing, but we started pondering what else might do the trick and came up with:

  • Half a liter of caffeine-free coke
  • 25 pixie stix
  • 5-10 pieces of maple candy
  • 1/3 box of brown sugar (yum!)
  • a small jar of honey
  • 6-8 candy canes

Anything else you can think of? 🙂
