We're headed off for vacation next week, and I'm kind of excited because I'm looking forward to (hopefully) a sunny beach week with T and the kiddos.  However, I'm a little nervous at the thought of all that time cooped up with the kids in a teeny cabin.  E is definitely two.  She is a screamer, a cryer, and a semi-tantrumer, though I completely ignore the tantrum thing so it doesn't happen much.  It's a tough age because if I'm not watching them, it's hard to tell if D did something to make her legitimately upset, or if she's just being a brat.  We'll see how that goes in close quarters for a week!

Tomorrow is my next OB appointment.  I feel kind of huge compared to D and E's pregnancies.  I know that my stomach muscles are all stretched out from the other two, but up until a couple of weeks ago I wasn't showing much.  It's weird.  My pee is also a little cloudy, which I read can be normal or can be a sign of gestational diabetes.  Isn't the internet wonderful?  I really hope I don't have GD, because mama likes her ice cream.  If I can't drink wine, at least I can have my little bowl of ice cream instead.  :/

As T kindly pointed out, I didn't really have "cankles" per se, just fat feet.  Haha.  However, they've been much better this past week, so I'm hoping it was just a phase.  They're still a little puffy on the tops of my feet and the sides, but nothing like they were before.

Gumdrop is kicking all the time, which is totally nice.  Sometimes I use the doppler even though I can feel him kicking, just to hear the heartbeat.  I'm falling more and more in love with him every day...

Have fun on vacation. We stayed for a week in a cabin w/no plumping or electric & survived. Actually, because we were playing so hard, Addy slept like a rock star!

I am also feeling quite big this time around. Hoping, he doesn't get too big though. Glad you are doing well otherwise.
