Total Weight gain: I don't know! We had a little toilet leaking incident and cleared out the bathroom and I don't know where the scale is. I could technically look for it but I'll just update everyone next week. I'm thinking I'm at a nice steady pace of about a pound per week so maybe....23 lbs. total???
Maternity clothes: Yes, and even some of those pants are getting uncomfortable! Oh my!
Stretch marks: Still the same ones....still a very itchy belly!
Sleep: It's okay. I've taken Benadryl for my itchy belly a few times and that makes me sleepy! :-)
Best moment in the last week: Our company from Germany came yesterday! It's a very boisterous house with three 3 year olds and a 17 month old! :-)
Movement: He's a mover!
Gender: It's a boy!
Ayla's current sibling wish: Her wish this week is a baby sister. Sorry, Ayla. :-)
Ayla's current name choice when asked "What should we name the baby?": She actually said his name! Maybe it's starting to stick! :-)
Food Cravings: Nothing in particular but Michelle just brought me lots of goodies from Germany!
Belly Button in or out: It's an outie!
What I miss: The general easiness of being able to do things, like bend over for example. Ayla broke on her of bracelets with beads and I just didn't have the energy to pick them all up! I got some of them and then gave up. Luckily Katrin got the ones that rolled into random places for me!
What I am looking forward to: Spending the rest of this weekend and next week with my sister, niece, nephew, cousin, and second cousin. Ayla has had a great time playing with them!
Weekly Wisdom: I think that in general, people are kinder to pregnant people. When I went to pick up everyone at the airport yesterday, I got Michelle out of a ticket. You aren't supposed to park at the arrival terminal, but we had to go back and get Katrin, Nora, and Jana. Long story short - I picked Michelle up at Avis, got the rental car, and drove with them to pick up the rest of the crew. I parked on the side and so did Michelle. She had to run in and get Katrin. I got out of the car to tell the security guard that I had to park here for a second with my sister because there is no close parking and I am too pregnant to do all of that walking (which in reality I can still handle. Hee! Hee!). As I was talking to him, another security guard was already writing a ticket for Michelle. He told her to hold off.....phew!
Milestones: According to my pregnancy app. baby is about 3 lbs. and around 17 inches long! Everything is just continuing to grow and develop. :-)
Baby Brain Moment of the Week: I've definitely had some but I can't remember any of them right now!
Labor Signs: Hopefully not until the end of December!
