How far along? 24 weeks, 1 day

Cravings: I had to buy a package of Oreos this week.  Nom nom nom!

Aversions: Where do I begin?

Feeling? I’ve been doing okay with HG, so on Sunday night I decided to skip the Unisom that I’ve been taking every single night (part of my “drug cocktail” as I call it.

On Sunday, I had contractions that were 6 minutes apart for 8 hours, then they stopped.  Since then, I’ve been woken up in the middle of the night with contractions 4 minutes apart for one hour, then they always stop.  The good news is that these contractions are at least making a little progress.  I am now dilated 2.5 cm.
