All About Tiny

Tiny is coming up for 24 weeks old. Tiny weighs more than a pound and a half and is about eight and a half inches long from crown to rump.

This week Mummy's bump has definitely 'popped' causing lots of people to comment on how pregnant she looks all of a sudden, and yet still allowing for some people to think she doesn't look very pregnant yet ("It's your height, you carry it well and it hides the fact your pregnant". Causing Mummy to wonder if people just think she got fat again).

Tiny may be a boy or a girl, according to a number of old wives tales - bump size and position, Mummy's cravings, and a whole lot more!

Tiny has reduced Mummy's wardrobe to a bare minimum, but Grandma took Mummy shopping last week and found a few nice maternity tops in Mothercare. Mummy has also been given some maternity clothes from a friend at church, which which she is very grateful.

Tiny has a number of nicknames including Tiny, mini-me, baby bump. Tiny's Mummy and Daddy have a few names up their sleeves for when Tiny is born, but nothing set in stone as yet. They think that meeting Tiny in person will help clear up that decision (aside from the fact that obviously they want to give Tiny a gender appropriate name, they also want to get to know Tiny a little more and discover a little more of Tiny's personality).

Tiny's Favourite hobbies

* Bouncing around on Mummy's bladder.
* Causing Mummy to have heartburn.
* Kicking and moving around to wake Mummy up in the middle of the night.
* Causing Mummy to completely forget things like sending birthday cards, what she went into a room for, and for words to totally escape her on occasion.
* Listening to Daddy talking to me and kissing Mummy's bump.

Tiny's Favourite foods
* Burger in a bun, with fried onions.
* Ritz biscuits with cheddar cheese.
* Anything chocolatey.

I kind of hit me when you said Grandma that that's me not someone else.

Awwwwwww, makes me wish I could hug Tiny from across the ocean :) It's nice to hear how things are going, girlie!

My son, who was 2 at the time, used to talk to his sister in utero -- Mom's belly button is the place you have to talk into, according to him.

And Mom-dumb is a perfectly normal and temporary condition, which should lessen in a few... years...

Have fun!

Great update, Debs! Glad to hear all is going well! Can't wait to find out if Tiny is a boy or a girl, but I have my suspicions.... ;)

Debs said...

At the moment we're thinking boy, Becky. But hey, that's just a feeling!

This is such a great post! Heartburn is the worst. The clothing situation had me reduced to (possibly hormonal) tears when it was me. And the forgetting... I used to blame all the extra blood from being pregnant going through my brain... but then I never STOPPED being forgetful and scatterbrained... so... I forget my point.

Yeah, the bit about Grandma hit me too!! SO exciting.

Let me tell u now, reading Tiny's list of hobbies and favourite foods made me think how little they actually change when they're out - and no longer quite so 'tiny' - the only thing I might do to change that list (apart from adding stuff to it but I don't want to scare ya) is to add an 's' at the end of 'bump'

Mrs Wibbs said...

Hehe - sorry, didn't finish that...
Yes they do start taking over your life pretty much from conception I reckon, and from then on, ur in it for life!! Enjoy, it's fab :)
