28 weeks!

How Far Along? 28 weeks
Size? eggplant
Maternity Clothes? still mixing them up with regular clothes
Weight Gain? I'm gonna go with 19 this week! :)
Stretch Marks? Lathering and lathering, hoping I can make that one disappear and not get anymore!
Gender? Leighton Kate!
Sleep? still not fab, i could crawl in bed right now!
Movement? lots of it - strong ones lately, they make me jump a bit! :)
Food Cravings? cinnamon goodness!
Anything making you queasy or sick? nothing too bad
Labor signs? Just a few Braxton Hicks here and there.
Belly button in or out? that sucker is flat already!
Wedding rings, on or off? still on, they did get a little tight after Christmas dinner! HA!
What I Miss? being able to breath normal, see below
Symptoms? so remember me talking about little anxiety attacks/shortness of breath? well they haven't gotten any better, worse at times actually. At points, I have almost passed out while breaking out in a sweat, getting dizzy, and seeing spots. It's really scary when it gets to that point not to mention the annoying-ness of not breathing normally on a regular basis. My doc sent me to a cardiologist to make sure that I didn't have something that I can't remember the name now, but something pregnant women can develop....so after an EKG and Echo, I was cleared from that (I can't imagine what that 2 hours cost me!). But they still aren't sure what is causing it. I have an irregular heartbeat, which can be caused from the pregnancy. They are sending me some sort of device to wear for a week to track my heart and see what all it is doing. Sounds fun, right?
Good news is I passed my glucose test! YAY!!! 
Bad news, I'm anemic again....oh joy! I wasn't surprised there, I was with Elise and I have always been borderline anemic....bring on the daily Iron pills!
Happy or Moody? I have been very happy, I love the holidays - especially with E! But today, I am a bit moody....too much to do! :)
Best Moment of the Week? Christmas morning, it is so different and so much more fun now with E! Full recap to come soon! :)

I get terrible anxiety from driving. I have the same thing happen to me on a regular basis. I saw a hypnotherapist a few times we did a relaxation session and a breathing session. It helped tremendously. The numb face and feeling faint were largely brought on from me holding my breath without realizing it.
