I was reminded this evening I haven't updated lately about Flippy. Flippy continues to do very well. I continue to survive. They're sending me to physical therapy because Flippy is wrecking my back; I've started gaining weight (after losing in the first trimester and then mostly maintaining in the 2nd); and I'm starting to slightly panic about getting the nursery ready and getting registered!

My belly went SPROING a week ago, but this week it's been mostly maintaining (although I have a sneaking suspicion we're about to start another growth spurt ... I feel stretchy).

Whenever Grey Cat leans against my belly and purrs, Flippy flips like crazy. I'm not sure if this is excitement or protest. But it's super-cute!

Too Much Cuteness for One Blog Post

The cute! It burns me with its cuteness!

It's weird how 24-week-old fetal Flippy has already got habits and a bit of a personality. Flippy gets quiet when Mr. McGee talks, and likes to do his morning calisthenic workout around 5 a.m. Evening calisthenics occur reliably around 7 p.m. and again at 10.

All the discussion of how the fetus can "already hear" has made me very aware of what I talk about during my day. Flippy is getting an education in philosophy as well as trance music. And seems to spend a lot of time lot of time listening to people complain about current events.

People either think the name Flippy is adorable or think we're pre-emptively scarring Flippy for life. I haven't been able to identify a pattern to who finds it cute/awful, but there's no middle ground!
