Thanks again for the congrats!

Indeed, it's very slippery out...

Now I have cravings for frozen strawberries, luckily my future m-i-l has some and always offers them when we visit.

I'm still tired, and I really hope I'll get the energy burst you're supposed to around week 18-20. We need to put this house in order before the baby arrives...

I am STILL waiting for my energy boost . . . but the nesting instinct really kicked in around September and everything was ready since Boo was 3 weeks early but had to wait 2 months before he could wear the newborn stuff ! Had time to get some preemie stuff while he was still in the hospital.
Congrats and enjoy it now (while it is still as quiet) and after the little one gets here!
(first dibs to play with tiny toes!)

The only food craving I had was for meat. We had been experimenting with vegetarian eating, and about half our meals were vegetarian. Then when I got pregnant, I started really craving meat. Non of the vegetarian combinations satisfied so I gave up on it and went back to eating meats.

The body is very wise. Most pregnant women seem to crave healthy things.

Congrats to you too Thais!

On the other hand...

Pickles, liquorice, ice cream anyone?

My wife is a lover of liquorice (as is Granath, I seem to remember) but she wasn't allowed that during her pregnancy... too salty (as she likes the triple salty kind). With her pregnancy being in summer most of the time she switched to another craving: ice cream. We soon learned that there's heaps of salt in ice cream

Oh well. I seem to crave just sauerkraut (keeps my bowels working) and frozen strawberries.

I'll have the occasional piece of candy, but only very small amounts and I don't crave it.

I and my fiance went to see our ante-natal/pediatric nurse yesterday. It was amazing to listen to our baby's heartbeat, as well as the funny scratchy noises when the little one tried to move away from the pressure on my tummy caused by the contact microphone. It makes our impending parenthood slightly more real for both of us. My bump doesn't show yet and I can't feel any movements either at 16 weeks. But soon!

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
