I don't know if I mentioned, no weight gain these last two weeks. So I'm still at around 15 pounds. I think I'd set a goal to not gain more than 20. We'll see how that goes. But I should be close even if I do go over a little.
Sophia has been moving a lot this week. The other night she was making little tents on my belly. It's still not to the point that you can see hands or feet or anything like that. I don't know if it ever will be for me, since I probably have a little more cushion layers than some people :)
My sleep has been deteriorating some. I'm making an extra potty trip and sometimes it's hard for me to get back to sleep. Not like me at all. In fact one night this week I took melatonin. I slept very soundly. I don't like to take it very often because it works so well I feel I could sleep 3 hours past my alarm. But John was congested, so he was snoring more, and although he doesn't snore loud enough to wake me up, it does make getting back to sleep after a potty trip that much harder.
Friday night my good friend (and bridesmaid) and her two friends spent the night here on their way to New Orleans. We had a girls night (along with my MOH/BFF and my other good friend/neighbor) and went to our local Greek festival for some yummy food and lots of good conversation. When we got back home we chatted a bit while my friends all felt Sophia's "belly dance" she does every night. Fun times.

I had a baby shower today with the ladies from our church and two of my friends. Sadly, I didn't take any photos. There were some taken, just not by me :) I may get my hands on them. I got some very nice things, including embroidered burp cloths and a blanket, all with Sophia's name. I also got some handmade paci clips, very cute.
Tomorrow afternoon we are going to take maternity photos, and I'm really excited about that! I picked out our outfits this evening. I'm going for a fall/country theme. We are hoping to find a field with some big hay bales, we shall see.
So here's to a great photo shoot!
