Miss anything? not waking up 2-3 times at night to use the restroom, so much for that getting better in the second trimester!
Movement:  lots and lots! I don't remember feeling this much movement with K. Part of me prays that it's because she can hear and she's responding to all the noise.
Belly Button in or out:  flat
This week:  Little girl gave us some drama. I began having to many contractions despite resting and drinking plenty of water. Had to see the OB and get a Fetal Fibronectin test and a sonogram to measure the length of my cervix. Luckily my FTT came back negative and my cervix was at the proper length. OB thinks I may just have an irritable uterus,but  will continue to keep an eye on things because of my previous history of preterm labor. 
How's daddy doing?:  relieved that all is well with Little Miss
How's K doing?:  K keeps lifting my shirt to look at my belly button and asking " how are we gonna get her out?"
Looking forward to: The glider for her nursery comes in this week!

  Baby girl 24weeks 4 days, but measuring 25weeks 6 days (90% on growth chart).
I know for sure my dates are correct, so she's just a little big for her age. Her father was 10lb 2oz at birth and I was a little over 6lbs. So average we're looking at about 8lbs. K was 7 lbs 3oz but was 2 weeks early. I can't imagine how big he would have been if he had cooked for two more weeks!
