Ok, so now that I'm pregnant, I've been getting the hiccups AT LEAST 3 times a day, and they last for quite a while.

According to Lexie, there's an old wives tale that says if you have hiccups during your pregnancy, your baby will have a lot of hair.

However, most of these old wives tales are completely absurd. One says that if you deny a pregnant woman what she craves, you'll get a stye in your eye. I'm pretty sure withholding a certain food from an expectant mother will NOT cause an ocular bacterial infection. However, my mom wouldn't make me Rice Krispies Treats the other day, and I'm secretly hoping her eye starts hurting. That'll teach her.

Mmmmm... Rice Krispies Treats... I need to make some like, right now.

Shit... I don't think we have any marshmallows :'(

Anyway, if there is ANY grain of truth to the hiccups-and-hair theory, I will give birth to something resembling a gorilla. Of this I'm certain.

I wonder how the Rice Krispies Treats recipe would taste with Cocoa Puffs instead of crisped rice...

According to General Mills, Cocoa Puffs are "naturally and artificially flavored frosted corn puffs". I mean, if rice tastes good with marshmallows and butter, corn must too, right? I need to get some marshmallows and spend some time in the kitchen tomorrow.

Yummmm... Count Chocula!!! I'll have to get some of that too. (Still on the General Mills site, and forgot about half these cereals.)

I really want chili cheese nachos from Diamond 8 Billiards right now. Grrrr...

I thought you said hiccups, and I lsearched online for old wives tales about hiccups, and there was one about hiccups and hair, so idk.

Either way, my kid's gonna be hairy, cuz I've had heartburn like crazy and have been eating Tums like they're candy! lol
