I stole this from a friends blog but thought it would be a good way to share some statistics:
How far along? 26+ weeks
Total weight gain: 12 pounds (the only good thing about not being able to keep anything down for 4 months)
Maternity clothes? Yes...plus all things elastic waste- gym shorts! Gabe's tank tops and tee-shirts, and billowy dresses
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Pretty uncomfortable but sleeping well. I swap sides at least twice an hour. Thanking God that Gabe can sleep through it.
Best moment this week: Hearing Finnegan's nice strong heartbeat Monday night. After the midwife removed the doppler Finn moved to the other side and kicked me...she is already full of spunk!
Movement: Non-stop! She is totally nuts. We can feel where she is and kind of push her over and make her move too. She loves music, listening to a kids cd now- THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS and she is dancing!
Food cravings: Nada, appetite is pretty normal. I do like chocolate or ice cream every day but can't blame it on the girl.
Gender: 100% girl unless sono was wrong- we wouldn't know that until D day!
Name: Finnegan Marie (pretty sure on the middle name). If she comes out and we aren't feeling Finn it'll change but she is already Finnegan to us.
Labor Signs: umm, NO!
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Coffee, bending normally, sleeping on my back and belly
Weekly Wisdom: When you need help ask! When you don't- JUST DO IT!
Milestones: Guess this means progress we are making on getting ready: Birthing class almost booked, glucose test taken, book shelves cleared of some space, winter clothes put away...so much more to do!
