Size of baby: Over 2 pounds. The twins were 32 weekers, and weighed 4 pounds. I think it's amazing that in the next 4-5 weeks the baby will double in size, and the next 4-5 weeks after that will double again.
Total Weight Gain: At my doctor's appointment 2 weeks ago, I was already at 21 pounds. I am supposed to gain between 25 and 35, so it looks like I will be at the high end of that. Those darn McDonald's cheeseburgers! However, I am measuring right on with the doctor.
Maternity Clothes: Ordered some colder weather stuff online, and I think I am done shopping. I don't have a lot, but certainly enough to get me through the next 3 months.
Gender: Boy. Still no name. Dan and I each have several names we like, but nothing we absolutely love. And our lists are not overlapping at all.
Movement: Still the best part of being pregnant.
Sleep: Not horrible, but I do miss sleeping on my belly.
What I miss: My wedding ring. I couldn't take it off today, so I had to grease it up and take it off. My fingers are only going to get bigger.
Cravings: Nothing specific. In fact, I don't find myself starving like I have been in the past.
Symptoms: I must be in the third trimester. I've had Braxton-Hicks, back pain, and heartburn. Yay!
Best moment this week: Realizing I can rest my arms on the top of my belly.
Other pregnancy news: I get to go do my glucose screening and get a rhogam shot next week. Lucky me. I also finally did some preparations for this boy--I bought a coming home from the hospital outfit for him. He doesn't need much, but I definitely wanted to get him his own special homecoming outfit.
