Total Weight Gain/Loss:+Maternity Clothes: going to have to up this to 34 pounds…went to the doctor last week. Definitely wearing Maternity Clothes…I have been for pretty much the whole time. Gender: It’s a GIRL; name will be chosen when we see her! Please – keep suggesting names…we really don’t decide until we meet her… Movement: Still crazy but I don’t think I’m noticing it as much since I’ve been much more active now that I’m feeling better. Sleep: okay – crazy, crazy, crazy dreams. I’ve also tired to quit with the caffeine and I think that has helped with the mid-night waking up…for now… What I miss: champagne, beer, being able to walk without pain, sleeping on my back, my ankles Cravings: canned pears, whipped cream, bacon, mayonnaise, chocolate, pineapple, pineapple upside down cake Symptoms: heartburn, terrible hips, swollen ankles, emotional, an enlarged stomach Best Moment of the Week: finishing up LOTS on my to-do list!
