The fruit snack craving has totally fled. :)
No new cravings this week.

achy hips from laying on my side at night
Another memorable thing from this week is that I started really feeling her move. I wasn't completely sure if it was her or something else. It didn't feel like butterflies, which is what all the books and websites have said it feels like. Instead, it felt a little more like a muscle twinge, and after talking to another friend who experienced the same thing, I have concluded are kicks from little miss Emily.
