Almost 24 Weeks

A few people have asked for pregnant-pictures (this is for you, Amanda!), so I figured why not.
We originally intended to take a picture at each week of the pregnancy, then make a book of it to show Baby C later down the road. Yeah, we've slacked on the picture taking. (do any pregnant women like their picture being taken?!)

This was taken yesterday, when unfortunately, no one was around to take a picture other than Brennan;). Hence the cheesy-take-your-own-picture-in-front-of-the-bathroom-mirror pose.
Oh well.

Here I am 23 weeks 5 days pregnant with Baby C:
(yes, yes, lucky me, I gain weight easily in the face)

And side-shot:
(hey, funny facial expression, but it feels unnatural to take your own picture via a mirror!)

So there you have it, folks. I'm better off posting these here than Facebook, since fewer people check here. ;)
I am excited to be almost to my 3rd trimester. I go to the doctor next Wednesday, and then I think I start going twice a month. 
I've been feeling pretty good, especially if you compare this pregnancy to Brennan's (when I had kidney stones at this point). I have the typical reflux, leg cramps, etc. One thing more significant this pregnancy is the amount of Braxton Hicks I notice, as well as pressure in the netherlands and ligament pain. JOY. But hey, it's not my 1st pregnancy, so it's to be expected. 
Baby C is moving quite a bit, even as I type right now. He feels low, and many of his kicks make my bladder think I have no time left to get to the bathroom.
One day, hopefully sooner than later, he will have a definite name. 

Pregnancy #5...and so it goes!

YAY!!!!!! You look SO cute!!! AH ok I'm happy to know you when you are pregnant. Even though we obviously seem to know each other well, Brennan was already born when I "met" you, even online :) Soooo I am enjoying this pregnancy along with you. You are so cute pregnant! I can't stand it :) And guess what, I have a girlfriend for your little C. I'm not sure what her name will be yet but when I find out I will let you know so we can make sure the names go along well :)

Love those preggo pics! Does C have a name? I'm assuming it will start with C at least.
