I survived my second week of commuting to and from Edinburgh. It is pretty draining and, I won't lie, I take off my shoes and put my feet up on the train home but it's not soul destroying. We are still nowhere near having an agreed upon name but I guess we have 15 weeks until we figure that out! A lot of the names we'd discussed last time are too popular now, we just don't like any more or just don't work. Searching for baby names online is interesting because I swear so many of them make up the name's origins and meaning!
*How far along?: 24 weeks
*How big is baby?: A cantaloupe. Now I want a wedge of cantaloupe with some salt sprinkled on it.
*Maternity clothes?: Yes, but this dress is not maternity. This is a Land's End dress my Mom sent me last year but it was a bit big in the bust and body. Massive pregnancy boobs and bump means it fits now though!
*Sleep?: I'm so exhausted from my commute Monday-Wednesday I sleep really well the second half of the week.
*Best moment this week?: My Mom booked her flights to come in September!
*Movement?: Yes; getting movement at other times of the day rather than just at night.
*Food cravings?: Lemons and salts. If I could have margaritas I'd be rocking out.
*Labor signs?: No
*Belly button in or out?: Innie, but much shallower; you can see that my belly button ring isn't actually a belly button piercing but a stomach piercing. What you say? See apparently when I was a baby the upper lip of my belly button got infected and was cauterized off except no one told me this until AFTER I got my belly button pierced and discovered it's really just a dermal stomach piercing. Luckily my stomach isn't flat and you can't really tell.
*What I miss: Antihistamines. I have some allergy medicine from the GP but it really isn't as good as the real stuff. I think just the tail end of my chest infection and my allergies combined are not fun.
*What I'm looking forward to: We leave for France on Wednesday!
*Milestone: First bebe inconvenience. NotBlondeHusband ordered Still Game tickets last year and they arrived today---for bebe #2's birthday. Guess he won't be making that show.
