Baby's Size: Baby is about the size of an eggplant and is approximately 14" long and weighs 1 2/3 pound. He or she is able to hear my voice and is beginning to practice taking breaths.
Sleep: I seem to go through a period of a few weeks where I need a ton of sleep. I just got through one of those periods and am feeling a little better, but I could still use a nap most days.
Movement?: Lots of movement :) This baby doesn't seem as active as the others were which maybe means that he or she will be laid back and easy going, right? :)
Food Cravings: I've been craving eggnog and Little Debbie Cherry Cordials lately. And yes, I'm definitely putting on too much weight. Ugh. I eat more when I'm stressed out without even realizing it and the last month has been extremely stressful to say the least.
Things That Make Me Queasy: Been feeling pretty good lately.
Gender: We're keeping it a secret because of what happened last time and because I just get so annoyed with the comments and assumptions about my family when I tell people what I'm having. I can tell you that the baby is healthy and right on track for growth. :) My standard answer when someone asks what I'm having is to smile and say, "Well, we know it's either a boy or a girl!" So far, that's worked pretty well :)
Labor Signs: The Braxton-Hicks contractions are starting to get a little stronger, but nothing too bad yet.
Symptoms: The usual. Killer heartburn, fatigue, achy legs.
Mood Most Of The Time: Depends on the minute you're asking.
Looking Forward To: Turkey! I love turkey and I only get to eat it once a year at Thanksgiving (I tried making turkey for supper one time and Hubby was not impressed since apparently turkey can only be served on Thanksgiving)
