Maternity clothes?: Some of the maternity clothes that fit me at the end of my last pregnancy I am now growing out of. My belly comes out the bottom of some of the shirts.

Stretch marks?: Nope

Sleep?: Still very badly

Best moment this week?: Best goes along with the worst...started contractions on Wednesday and was admitting to the hospital. Seems I was dehydrated so they gave my fluids through an IV and got them stopped. Spent 1 night in the hospital. Best part is that they were able to stop it without medication!

Movement?: As you can tell from my recent video that I posted there is a ton of movement.

Food cravings?: I really want sweets!

Labor signs?: Yes but they were stopped! Haven't had any since then...just the normal Braxton Hicks contractions.

Belly button in or out?: Definitely out

What I miss: Being able to have Jessica sit on my lap. When she does now and my belly presses into her back she gets up and tries to push it in....I guess she doesn't like being kicked in the back while sitting on my lap.

What I'm looking forward to this week: My mom coming up to visit next weekend.

Weekly Wisdom: Drink lots of water and try to relax.

Milestone: 75% done with the pregnancy!!
