My 20 week appointment was great. As always, I was anxious to hear his little heartbeat. My midwife (hopefully we'll be with an OB next visit) told me she was a bit concerned with my weight gain, or lack thereof. I have gained five pounds- total. Food doesn't appeal to me like it used to, so I eat when I am hungry-- which I thought was often, but apparently I need to be shoving more food in. I don't crave sweets like I did five months ago, and instead will opt for anything with salt. Sometimes I think Sean should wear a salt lick around his neck. I am thirsty all the time-- no surprise, due to my increased sodium desire. I wake up often in the middle of the night; partly due to a squashed bladder and the other part due to an unquenched, never-ending thirst.
I have stopped worrying about the small things, because the
I have fallen in love with all things baby related. Baby clothes; I am grounded from shopping for them (unless they are on sale-- a really really good sale), until after the shower. The babies and small children toddling around at church make me anxious for all the fun stages ahead. Holding babies; although, at first I was worried that if I held other people's I wouldn't want to hold my own. Baby's/Children's books; my secret desire is to have a room with shelves and shelves of books-- the secret desire, attached to this one, is that the books will collect zero dust.
Sean has been preparing for this little guy in a different way. He has been busily working with the young men and swimming in tooth-filled requirements/tests at school. Congratulations to him for finishing and PASSING the first part, the drilling portion, of his LAST test. WOOHOO!!! Yay Dr. Sean!

Last night I was able to attend a very fun and very creative girl's night. We all arrived dressed as witches and weren't disappointed with the company, food, decor, costumes, games, and hostesses. If only I was this creative.

Game #2 was Mafia- witch style. We were burnt at the stake.
|Game #3-- Pumpkin bowling. I got a strike and won a prize- laxative pills. Thank you, Helena! You really shouldn't have.|
|Our brew: Bat juice and Vampire Blood.|

The after party was just as good as the party. I love girl's nights. Thanks Amber and Helena!
