What part of pregnancy are you looking forward to?: Hearing the heartbeat for the first time. I also can't wait for those first little flutters! And constant movement. And hiccups!

Favorite food?: Hmmm... Right now, I'm sort of drawing a blank, but that could be because I just stuffed my face, so food doesn't sound good.

One interesting fact about you!: I'm a goof! And a liiiittle bit of a hippie. My friends all call me "granola", and I love it. Also, I'm a little bit of a sarcasm fiend. I can't help it!

Cool, Erica! I really want to go to China, too, and my fiance is fluent in Mandrin and Cantonese so it would be pretty convenient for me! He's planning on teaching the little one Mandarin and possibly Cantonese as well.

I hope you have a wonderful and healthy 9 months!

Melanie, that sounds like me - the sarcastic hippie part LOL!
