Size of Baby:
Aj is the size of a Banana! That doesn't seem big according to Loche lol :)
Movement is here and there really some nites Aj kicks up a storm preventing me from sleeping and sometimes i don't feel a thing and i get so worried!! But Aj does respond to daddy's touch and daddy's voice :)
Everyone still thinks its a girl I'm just hoping for healthy and happy! And ok yes I'm secretly hoping for a girl as well ;) have u SEEN some of the cute things out there for baby girls!!
Sleep MM how i miss it :D but like usual i end up passing out when i am exhausted! Napping when i can, sleeping is getting harder as i cant find a comfy position and i already take up more then half the bed with pillows! Poor Nathan!
SPICEY i can NOT get enough spicey food LUV LUV LUV anything spicey at the moment! Indian Beef Vindaloo has been a huge craving :) and spicey noodles with lots and lots of chili peppers!! And i also have a gross craving of Pepsi...I REFUSE to give into this nasty craving!
Lower back pains, fatigue and tender sore hips... and my boobs r driving me nuts...they r super heavy...and I'm not even half way threw this!
Belly Button:
In still no sign of popping out :) so i think i shall remove this question!
Maternity Clothes: longer in normal clothes havent been since the end of last week....all maternity stuff now! You all will get a glimpse of how much i am actually showing... :)
What i miss:
The lack of boobage! lol... i REAAAALLLLYY miss sleeping on my tummy...i dream about it when I'm not dreaming of crazy things like giant size lamingtons the size of a boat with super size shark teeth screeching at me and chasing me around the back yard trying to eat me!! Yup gotta love those pregnancy dreams!
Taa Daaa.. Yep there's the Bump i was telling you about.... I have only gained 3pounds since falling pregnant.... So go figure! :)

Now for a Recipe!

Zucchini and Potatoes!

1 medium size onion sliced thinly
1 medium sized potato (cut in smallish thin slices)
2 decent size zucchini (chopped or diced to bite size)
1 Tablespoon of Garlic
Fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
 1/3 of a cup of red wine
1/2 cup of chicken stock
1 teaspoon of chili powder
2 teaspoons of dried marjoram
a dob of butter and a lil olive oil for the pan :)

Heat your oil and butter in a fry pan then add your onions, garlic and your salt and pepper to taste, cook the onions down. If they start sticking add some of the stock at this point toss in the potatoes let them simmer for about 10 mins. Now add your marjoram and chili powder to the potatoes. Mix threw then pour the rest of the stock and red wine over the top. Preheat the oven on high your stock and wine should have cooked down to a nice thickish sauce. Toss the zucchini threw the potatoes and sauce. Empty the zucchini and potatoes into a casserole dish and place in the oven to finish cooking the potatoes for about 20mins! We served this with lamb chops! YUMO!
Super simple and oh so tasty!
