24 Weeks

24 Weeks

Total Weight Gain:  10 lbs.

Maternity Clothes?  Finally bought a few more tank tops that are long, so I can keep wearing lots of my normal clothes.  I'm patiently waiting for some warmer weather which will allow me to bring out all those flowy sundresses that will surely accommodate my growing bump!

Wedding Rings On or Off?  On!  I'm not swelling up yet; we'll see what happens when the warmer weather comes along...

Stretch Marks?  My belly is still looking flawless! :-)

Sleep?  So-so.  Luckily I get to sleep in, because some of my best sleep comes in those morning hours!

Best Moment This Week:  Getting my appetite back!  All of sudden I am hungry constantly.  I'm even sneaking some nibbles in bed at 11pm while reading before I fall asleep.  I have finally hit the part of pregnancy where you have 2nd, 3rd, maybe even 4th dinner.

Miss Anything?  Wine, there will be never be a week I don't miss a glass of wine.

Movement?  Still moving all over the place.  I think he's working his way to my ribs now...not sure how I feel about that!

Food Cravings:  It's a long list: lemon poppy seed pancakes (yes, I made them again), oatmeal (never liked it before, love it now with raisins & brown sugar), whole wheat toast with peanut butter & agave nectar, and blueberry greek yogurt with grapenuts!  Breakfast has become my new favorite meal.

Food Aversions:  Meat has actually made its way back into my life.  I guess my increased appetite comes with a desire for meat again.  The only thing upsetting my stomach right now is smells....I DO NOT like smelling food from the last meal while doing the dishes, yuck!

Symptoms:  Some little discomforts here or there. 

Staying Active?  Oh yes, I LOVE going to the gym!  I'm still able to run my 5 miles, so I'm pretty happy about that.  I keep thinking I'm going to get in the pool one of these days, but it has yet to happen.

Belly Button:  It's "in" but pretty strange looking to be honest.

Happy or Moody?  I would use the word irritable this week...happy, but irritable!  Costco is not the place for irritable people either.  That place is always full of crazy shoppers who don't know how to handle the big shopping carts!

Nursery Progress:  I'm constantly looking online at bedding, paint options, I need to commit to some decisions!  Each week I get more & more anxious to get it ready!

Looking Forward to:  Enjoying my last 2 weeks in the 2nd trimester!  They say this is the honeymoon stage of pregnancy so I'm holding on to my last days.  I'm also excited to plan our "babymoon!"  We're thinking of taking a quick weekend via ferry somewhere in the lovely Puget Sound!
