24 Weeks

In an effort to remember these short-lived days of being pregnant and all the fun (good and bad) that goes along with it, I am going to document with the obligatory weekly updates. Everything is going really well aside from your typical aches and pains from time to time. We know it's a boy and he's set to arrive in late May!



How far along?  Here's the part where we out ourselves.  :)  I was 24 Weeks as of last Thursday!  I started writing this post last week, so we're going to do two in the first week to catch up. Crazy to think that we're already six months in!

How big is the baby this week?  Ear of Corn

Total Weight Gain?  I was +10 pounds at my last appointment.  I guess I should start weighing myself at home to keep a little better eye on this.  Especially now that I'm eating anything that doesn't move. 

Maternity Clothes? Definitely pants- I can still wear pretty much all the shirts in my closet but prefer the maternity tops since they are more snug and make me look pregnant rather than whale-ish.

Best Moment of the Week?  Getting a bunch of hand me downs from my friend Jules who has two little guys.  He already has a solid start to his wardrobe thanks to her and a few 40% off online sales at Gap! 

Trouble Sleeping?  I definitely struggled with sleep in the very beginning but it's gotten MUCH better. I know this will be short lived though so I'm trying to soak it all in while I can!  

Miss Anything?  Booze. Superbowl Sunday and beer go hand in hand, but thankfully O'Douls is a surprisingly decent substitute. 

Movement? Yes! After a few weeks of "was that it??" I finally started feeling him with confidence around week 22. Den can feel him as well and every once in awhile you can even see little nudges on the outside. SO WEIRD!

Food Cravings? Cookies all day every day and this week I've been craving a donut like nobody's business. I still haven't fulfilled that little urge, but hopefully soon. 

Belly Button - In or Out?  In, but I wouldn't be surprised if it pops out by the time this is all over. 

Symptoms? Not really!  I little bit of a back ache now and again, but I've been feeling really good lately!

Wedding Ring - Off or on? On

Happy or Moody?  Happy

Looking Forward to?  Vacation! We had planned on going on a delayed honeymoon in January and just never got around to booking it. I finally pulled the trigger so we are looking forward to soaking up some sun and enjoying what is likely to be our last long trip for quite awhile!
