24 Weeks, 6 Days: Looking at HypnoBirthing

Ok, so I'm still 128 pounds--ACTUALLY, I'm 127 pounds....which means that I haven't gained any weight since 10/12/11!!! Almost a month!  Ha!  I may stay at 140 pounds yet! Would love to come in just under 140 pounds...but we'll see.  I think I'll be happy with 140.  That would be gaining 28 pounds, which isn't too bad.  25 would be better, but I'll take what I can get.  I have really been trying to not over eat and snack, which I haven't been super successful at, however I have cut out my extra meal I was eating every day.  Every day after work, at around 4:00pm, I was starving and getting some sort of something to eat--Panera, Jason's Deli, McDonalds, BK, etc.  So I've cut that out.  I think it's helping.  Now I'm saving money and calories!  Yay.  I wonder what I'll be at my DR appointment next Monday...?

Ok so on to my post subject.

I would love to take a HypnoBirthing class!  Apparently there's an instructor in Vero and in Orlando, so I at least have a decent chance at getting to go to one!  I have no idea how expensive this is...someone on WTE said around $500.  Ouch!  I'm thinking about having my grandmother ask people for a cash gift for my baby shower so I can go to this class.  I'll just tell her we have a ton of stuff, so what we could really really use is to go to this birthing class.  I think she'll agree with the hypnobirthing thing.  I couldn't find any class information on the website, but I emailed the lady to see if I can get info.  Hopefully there is something coming up!

My Halloween quilt is coming along nicely.  I've already decided that my next project is going to be a quilted advent calendar!

So I'm trying to make my own pattern based off of this image.  I figure it will be great for Lil' Chicken to be able to count down to Christmas with this every year!  My family had one when I was growing up, and it was so fun fighting with my siblings to see who would get to put an ornament on the tree every night.  It's super cute, and fun--and I think it will make a nice family tradition.

I can't wait until Lil' Chicken is here.

He woke me up with his wiggling this morning :)  I love watching my belly move when he starts flopping around.  Only 15 more weeks.  That is so insane to me.  He will be here before we know it.  Wow.  I need to get baby shower info to my peoples.  Maybe I'll work on that today.  I really really want to go to Joanne's to get some Xmas fabric, but I don't really have any money.  I don't need a lot, I'm trying to decide what to do about the pockets--all different patterns, or 5 different fabrics, and 5 pockets of each?  Should I put numbers on the pockets?  Like, 1, 2, 3...all the way to 25?  I think I'd like that, however I can't figure a color--I don't want it to be too much going on.

Ok, so I just filmed my belly moving!  I'm uploading it now....

Ok so it's all stretched out and weird, but the kicks are at :16, :31, :44, and 1:14.  Those are the bigger ones any ways, there are other ones but I can hardly see them at all in the video.  Yay Lil' Chicken!

  1. Oh--just kidding about the stretched out. I guess it fixes itself once it starts playing.
