The stares have gone from, "WOW - you go girl" to "Whoa, what if that chick goes into labor?"  I think I've started scaring people.  Today was officially my last day circuit training.  I've had to modify about half of the workout and after this morning's work out, my body is finally telling me ENOUGH of that!  I plan to continue Group Power for one more week (maybe....) and do some walking, but other than that, I am going to enjoy these last couple of weeks and not worry about making sure I get a work out in.   

Symptoms: INSOMNIA, bloody gums while brushing/flossing, getting up THREE times a night to potty and not being able to hold Lottie for more than a minute.  Other than those usual symptoms, I've been having severe hip pain at night - feels very arthritic like.  I've also been having leg and foot cramps through the night.  They make me jump out of bed to where I have to walk them out for a few minutes. 

Thyroid: After getting my refill, everything has been fine.  Hopefully, there will be no issues when I go to refill this next time around.

Maternity Clothes:  EVERYTHING!!!!! 

Gender: It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!! Steve has picked a middle name.  It's still up for discussion at this point.

Movement: She is moving from the top to the bottom, to the side, all over!

Food Cravings: This past week, I was a little more in control, but not really!  I really got down on some hummus / veggies / pita chips!  Delicious!   

Food Aversions: ZERO!

Best Moment of the Week:  I finally got all of Mini Coop's clothes washed.  Holy cow - I washed two large storage boxes full of clothes.  It must have totaled around 5 loads.  The drawers and closet are slap full of stuff.  I also started washing receiving blankets, bassinet sheets, etc.  I've definitely got another 3 or 4 loads of blankets, etc. to do so will hopefully knock that out this weekend.  We also went shopping for diapers, bibs, bottles, pacis, bottle brush cleaners, wipes, lotions, body wash, washcloths, etc.  All in all, it was a successful weekend as far as getting prepared goes, but also a very expensive one!!!!!!!!!!  

What I Miss: Sleeping comfortably and on my stomach.  It will still be a long time after the baby is born until I'll be able to sleep on my stomach, but I can't wait!

Differences Between 1st Pregnancy & 2nd Pregnancy: HOLY COW - time is flying by.  Does it not feel like I just started these posts?????  20 days - really?????????  Lord have mercy! 

Fears/Dreading: Typical fears - Praying Mini Coop is a healthy baby!  I just wish I could see her again!  I haven't had a medical ultrasound since I was 18 weeks - Ughhhhh.  I had around 5 or 6 the first time around.  I'm going to see if I can talk my doctor into a "growth" ultrasound this week.  Yeah right!  She's already told me no twice!

Follow Up Appointments/Ultrasounds: Next f/u appt. with my doctor is Thursday, the 18th. 

Bump Photo: What a gorgeous weekend!

My little mini me!

She wanted to poke her belly out too!
