Baby #2: Seven Month Update

Baby #2: Seven Months Currently... 

Feeling - Hiccups for the first time! I was just saying to Jon that Wren had the hiccups all the time, but I hadn't felt them with this baby yet, and then a few nights later, we were getting into bed and I felt them for the first time - like little rhythmic kicks, right in the middle of my belly. Jon got to feel them to so it was perfect timing. :) Also, extremely out of breath - all the time. I brought it up to my doctor because when I say extremely out of breath, I mean if I walk up five stairs, I feel like I just ran a marathon. My doc assured me it was normal and would only get worse as the baby grows. Hooray! (Not.)

Craving - Still milk. Between Wren and I (but mostly me), we drink a half gallon a day. I know I should try to cut back, but it's just so goooood. I did read online that it's common for women pregnant with girl babies to crave sweets and milk, so at least it's not just me, right?

Wearing - Maternity jeans + cords and stretchy maternity tops. My belly is big and round these days, and people are starting to comment on it. A stranger at Starbucks told me it was cute, and a lab tech at the doctor's office guessed that I was having a girl just by the shape of it, which I thought was really funny. 

Wondering - How this whole thing will go down this time around. Will my water break? Will I have contractions at home? Will I go into labor naturally? Will we induce again? What day will the baby be born? We know it will be sometime really close to Valentine's Day, but I'm hoping it's not actually on Valentine's Day. At first I thought that would be fun, but then I changed my mind. I'd rather this baby have a day all its own to be born on. 

Thinking - Of middle names still. All day every day. I think we might just draw one out of a hat when she's born. ;)

Doing - Doctor visits every two weeks now, which is crazy to me - I can't believe it's already that time. Also, making notes in my calendar about when to pack my hospital bag, when to buy the last of the baby items, etc.
