Size of baby: A banana!
Maternity clothes: Oh yes, and this won't be changing anytime soon. Even well until after the baby is here. :)
Gender: Sweet baby boy! Name to be revealed real real soon!
Movement: Sill feeling the "quickening" movement the books describe but no big kicks yet. I'm hoping by Christmas I can feel it and so can our families! UPDATE! I felt our baby kicking this morning (December 5th) while charting on the computer at work! He is kicking like crazy and they are strong! Such an awesome feeling. I am in total awe today!
Sleep: I have been sleeping like a rock lately. I don't know whats going on but one day last week I slept until 11am!! I paid for it the next night and didn't hardly sleep a wink. But on my days at home I'm sleeping until like 10am now, vs 8am, so I'm thankful for that.
What I miss: Nothing really. Except wine. I'd like some of that. And the other day I was craving a bloody mary like whoa, and I don't even like blood mary's typically. so odd.
Cravings: still orange juice. lots and lots of it. and brownies. and cinnamon rolls.
Best moment this past week: starting our big hardwood floor installation. our house is nuts right now. you can hardly walk in the kitchen, all the den and dining room furniture is in the garage, and the floor is down to cement. Dad started laying down some wood this weekend so it's nice to see the progress being made. I can't WAIT to have them finished and have our house back to normal. We have nowhere to sit, the cable doesn't work so we have no TV, we can't cook a thing (oh darn) and our animals are going nuts. Thank goodness Dad lives a few miles away cause we've been spending our nights hanging over there!
Symptoms: Not much of anything really, except my growing belly. Congestion comes and goes but it's tolerable.
What I'm looking forward to: I ordered a few swatches of bedding because I STILL can't make a decision on what to do about the nursery so I'm hoping once those come in and I can see the colors in real life I'll be able to make some purchases. I'm hoping to really start it after Christmas and after this huge downstairs floor project is complete.
Milestones: Baby boy has working taste buds and drinks several ounces of amniotic fluid a day. AND depending on what I eat depends on what the fluid tastes like. I think that is so cool!
Mood: so happy! and excited for Christmas and lots of family time! I miss my mama!
Labor Signs: still cooking. it's crazy that in 16 weeks we will have a full term baby...I'm sure I'll go the full 40 weeks tho, so 20 more to go.
So our house is crazy right now and my chalkboard is buried in the garage somewhere so all you get is iphone pics.
