How far along? 23 weeks 3 days
Total weight gain/loss: at my last doctors appointment I finally gained some weight 0.3 kg, not much but its a first for me. So right now I am still down about 9 pounds overall
Maternity clothes? yep
Stretch marks? Yes and they are gross
Sleep: I am starting to have a harder time sleeping. From waking up several times a night because I have rolled on my stomach and it is extremely uncomfortable or waking to go pee
Best moment this week:
Feeling baby kick for the first time and seeing my hubbies reaction when I told him I had felt baby move
Movement: See question above
Food cravings: Chocolate!!! I am also getting heart burn when I eat the chocolate so I guess I just can't win right now
Gender: No idea.... I did have a dream that it was a girl the other day though
Labor Signs: Still nothing :)
Belly Button in or out? Still in and hopefully it stays that way
What I miss: Back to beer.... how sad
What I am looking forward to:
Seeing this baby on December 26th- what a perfect christmas gift
Weekly Wisdom: Not sure if it's good wisdom but I was told several times today that labour is horrible
Milestones: Feeling baby... weird but amazing at the same time

Daddy to be

I am so excited to see M as a dad. I think he is going to be such a good dad. He has no experience with children let alone new born babies but I just know he is going to be such a good dad to our little one. It makes me so excited to start a family with him. I know that no matter what we can do this, together we will do this.

New firsts

Friday was my first time at the hospital for this baby. Not the best first to be having but I am happy to say all ended well. I started having some fairly intense pains in my abdomen in the morning and but lunch time the pain was still in my abdomen and had spread to my back and then I started to puke so I called the health link and she told me to go to the hospital.
My parents came and took me to the hospital. After a 3 hour wait the doctor came in to say she was pretty sure it was round ligament pain and that we could go home. So while I am very relieved that it is nothing serious it really sucks that it's something I am just going to have to live with until the baby is bigger and my uterus is no longer hanging.
