Total weight gain? More than I care to admit.
Movement? Oh yeah. Sometimes I think T-von is hatching escape plans and is testing all his options. I've got feet, elbows, and a butt poking out in all kinds of places.
Name? None decided yet although we are working from a short list. As as many of you know, when we decide it will be top secret until the little guy makes his debut.
- T-Von: Given by his dad and uncle Nick...the "T" stands for Traugott, which was Nick's contribution to the name dilemma, and the brothers (all 5 of them) decided that adding a "von" in front of Lauer makes a better last name for all of us.... thus "T-von" for short.
- Yadi: Given by our STL friends here in Tuscaloosa after I revealed that Yadier Molina is my favorite player for the STL Cardinals.
Labor signs? Stronger Braxton-Hicks contractions, some uncomfortable but not painful. But that's about it!
Latest from the doc? After measuring my belly at my appointment on Thursday, Dr. R announced... "You're measuring big!" I have a feeling my eyes got a little wide at this pronouncement, because he quickly added, "But he hasn't dropped at all yet so he may be actually be right on the mark." Either way, Dr. R wants another ultrasound when I am closer to my due date!
- Timing: We will be excited whenever T-von decides to arrive, but if we had our choice he would wait until after Thanksgiving weekend. That is the end of the volleyball season for Josh and will assure his presence and my peace of mind!
- Feeding: I was not able to breast feed Noah. The simple reason for this was that I didn't make enough milk. But we have often wondered if that was somehow related to Noah's leukodystrophy, but no one was able to give us any conclusive answers. I would very much like to breast feed this baby... and need my body to cooperate!
