How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good, albeit it a total moody, grump

When is your next appointment, and what is it for? Aug 23. Just a regular monthly check up.

What's your biggest pregnancy ache/pain/complaint? Back/neck pain from my hips and pelvis falling out of alignment! This has become an ongoing issue for me this pregnancy and will probably only get worse as more and more relaxen (sp?) are released in to that area to prep for delivery!

What's your favorite thing about being in the middle of your second trimester? Half way there and symptoms are at their minimum. Smile And I'm still not so huge that I wobble every where yet.

How far along are you on the baby's room? Pretty far! Just need to finish closet and fill up drawers with clothes, but I'm exchanging clothes with a friend in September, so holding off on that. Need to order new window shades and get some decorations on the wall. Smile

What baby item do you look forward to getting the most/or if you already got it, love the most? I think I'm loving all the little girl clothes. That is so fun!

Anything you crave or can't live without? Lately I've been craving cherries! And still love green chile. And now meat, which is weird.

Are you staying active and if so, what are you doing? Yes, doing my elliptical and leg band work and walking.

Any vacations planned before baby comes? We are going to Florida for a family vacation in 3 weeks and hopefully will have a little weekend getaway with my DH in September and then we are done for a while!
