Movement: Flutterings, flutterings, flutterings. Mostly only noticeable when I'm getting ready to drift off to crazy dreamland.
Cravings: Still haven't gotten that Paula Deen Hashbrown Casserole. Perhaps tomorrow. And I've wanted sweets. Thus the weight gain?
Symptoms: Crazy dreams and baby brain continue. Forgetfulness.
Preparations: I've worked on the quilt and the valances. Finally figured out how to problem solve the mess I had made of them. And I started our registries. Oooh, ahhh. I couldn't stop giggling over the cuteness of the tiny clothes. Even when looking online. And I scheduled family (me, baby bump, Hubby, Maggie) portraits for late October. Hopefully the belly will be more evident in 7 weeks.
More nursery sneak peeks...
Milestones: Um, we're halfway, people. Crazy! (Please note that the shorts below--which I swear are shorts--are really pinstriped. Not some crazy psychedelic thing (like my dreams).)
Weekly wisdom: With work, I generally have 1-3 months between site visits these days. That means this weight gain should be pretty obvious. I mean, 10-15 pounds? Yeah, not everyone even notices. My tip for the non-pregnant folks? DON'T sweat minor weight fluctuations. You're the only one who knows.
