23 Weeks

I had another check up this week and the doctor tells me that everything is going well. It's always so fun to me to go and actually get to talk to my doctor at these appointments, it's so much different than the check ups I had when I was pregnant with Asher.

This is one of my new skirts. I kept all of my maternity clothes from last time, but I really didn't have any dressy clothes. We never wore nice clothes in Indonesia, so I really had no need for them. Bangkok is like a fashion show all the time, so I figured I should try to fit in. I looked at what kind of clothes they were selling at The Gap and then went to China Town (with Asher on a hot day, not a good idea) and bought some fabric that looked the same. Three meters for $3 and that was enough for two skirts! I dropped off the material at the tailors, told her I was pregnant and she worked her magic to make me two lovely skirts. Of course now my problem is that I hate riding motorcycles in skirts. When I wear a skirt I have to ride side saddle and I really don't like doing that.

And just for fun here's a picture from about the same point of my pregnancy with Asher.

Anyway, our second son is doing great. I heard his little heart beating at the doctor's office and I feel him kicking around all day and night. He still doesn't have a name, but we are working on it.

You look great Mama! The "link" I use to get to the babyGap website is actually the gapmaternity one and I just click over... Even though we don't do a ton of dressing up in Malaysia, I think next go-round I wanna be cute and dressed up pregnant lady! Though my baju for Hari Raya (Eidul fitri?) was tailor made one year because I was pregnant. She just made the waist start at the top of my belly. Boy is that a loooong skirt!

Can't wait to hear the name! Even if it takes til Christmas to announce!
