Jicama. Really?

The good (?) people at stopped sending me weekly e-mail newsletters around 22 weeks.  No idea why that happened, but I since have learned that you can log onto their site and still find the weekly info and occasionally they still reference produce items.  (Hmm– maybe that’s why they did it, to lure us into their website. Tricky.)  In any case, as the calendar switches to 32 weeks today, I am excited to announce that Baboo is apparently the weight of a large jicama.  Yes, a jicama and not a regular one at that.  A LARGE one.  Let’s all become more informed citizens today as we learn just exactly what jicama is:

From The American Heritage Dictionary  (on– n.   A crisp, sweet turnip-shaped root vegetable (Pachyrhizus erosus) used raw in salads and as crudités or cooked in stews. Also called Mexican turnip, yam bean.

Wow, “yam bean” is so much cooler.  I’m totally going to start calling him Yam Bean.  Or perhaps YamBeanie?

In other news, as Kerry taught us all in her Baby Dunbar blog, there’s a whole lot of weight-gaining going on in relation to blood.  According to my 32-week newsletter, my blood volume has increased 40-50% since the little yam bean came to be.  Crazy.  They also tell me that I may experience shortness of breath and discomfort while sleeping.  Yes and yes.  Thank goodness I haven’t started in with the heartburn like I know some other bf2k7 preggos dealt with.  Happy thoughts for no heartburn, people!!  :-)

  1. Okay, I have been behind in reading your blogs, and I just got all caught up. I was cracking up picturing a pork chop bouncing off your belly. :) Too funny!
