How far along - 23 weeks, due November 30th.
Gender - A little gentleman.
Cravings - Peanut butter, cookies, and bananas in rice krispies.
Aversions - Fish.
Best moment - Seeing a few kicks from the outside. It's so weird, I love it.
Looking forward to - Getting my last internal ultrasound out of the way. Fingers crossed they don't schedule me for any more. It's fun to get a glimpse of him, but it's a pain to bring Aria and it's sucking up insurance funds.
Miss anything - Wine. I could go for some Bunratty Meade.
Movement - He is wiggling around in there all the time, especially at night. Or I just notice it more at night. But nobody else has felt him still. Maybe this is the week!
Other pregnancy symptoms - All the sciatica pain. Before I would wake up with a clean slate and by the end of the day it would be giving me grief. Now I wake up and it still aches and then gets worse as the day goes on. Pretty much the only symptom, but it's a doozy.
Aria's thoughts - I think some sort of realization that she won't be the only kid around has dawned on her. On the way home from swim lessons she said "You aren't bringing the baby in my room, are you?" I said the baby would be with mommy a whole bunch when he is very little so if you want mommy to come in your room then the baby would come too, is that okay? She said "Okay, but will he eat my books?" I said he wouldn't be able to grab books for a while, so she has a long time before she needs to worry about that.
Aria has been missing Disney lately I assume because she has been bringing it up a lot. She said "Disney doesn't let baby brothers come in." I said oh they sure do! She said "No, no grandma can watch baby brother while we are gone." Then strollers came up and she said "baby brother can ride in the bottom". Oh she cracks me up, but sounds like we have some work to do haha.
