You know, I was so excited to get home tonight and get a post written, but here it is, 2 hours later and midnight and I just got through my email and Twitter messages and now I can hardly keep my eyes open.

And Ling Ling has come out from under the dresser and is cuddled up with me so how can I possibly ask her to lay somewhere else while I blog? She was a sick kitty for a day or so, so she (meaning, I) need some lovin'.

Quick note on the pregnancy front before my eyes close on their own: 23 weeks along, had check up the other day and the doctor laughed at my bellybutton (WHAT BELLYBUTTON?) when I told her I was kinda freakin' out about it (OR THE LACK THEREOF!). She told me not to fret, it just happens. My blood pressure is finally back up to 80/140. I totally forgot that it was low, because I'm not dizzy or lightheaded anymore. And what's not there, you don't notice.... AND, she asked if I have had any contractions yet.

I have no idea what happened after that because I totally left my body.

Contractions? At 23 weeks? WTF?

Why? Braxton Hicks already? And how will I know? Will it really hurt? Will I panic and think I'm dying?


On another note, my sister-in-law is going to drop off a bunch of little boy clothes that her son has totally outgrown (after all, he's 3 now, not a newborn still in a onesie!), and some matenity clothes. And we both have great taste, so I know there will be some delightful gems included!

Bought the Amby Bed last weekend. Hope the little guy likes it!

Checked out the Amby Bed - it looks so cool! Nice to know for future reference. Let us know how it works for you! I love that it's portable to any room in the house, very nice. I hope you'll have many nights of restful sleep when the little one gets here.

BTW, when do we get to know the name? And I've never seen a pic of your hubby on here... does he despise pics of himself as much as my hubby does? (he can be really annoying about them but i post them against his will anyway... hehe)

One of my sisters-in-law was bugging me last night about his name... not telling anyone until he's born. After all, he may come out and be a totally different name. I might look at him and right away say, "Owen!", or "Bart!", and not the name we've picked. You'll know on or around Jan 27! I'm sure there will be pics of The D-Man with hospital pics, or perhaps sooner. Maybe I'll snap a couple when we (meaning HE) is painting the nursery!

Who links to me?
