I tend to have a sweet tooth, and pregnancy hasn't changed it, but I'm also craving more savory stuff -- chili with tortilla chips, artichoke dip with breadsticks, that kind of thing.  But I feel...

I'm knitting leg warmers and a blanket for friends' babies right now. We're hoping to find out the sex at the 18 week ultrasound, so I'm likely holding off on stuff for this baby until then.

Yup, me too, but from coughing. I find knees to chest the best position for avoiding pain while sneezing/coughing/rolling over, if you can bend over or get your knees up in time.

I felt a bunch of tapping the other night, at 14.5 weeks. I'm pretty sure it was the baby, and have felt more nudges in the same place since then. http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
