Bump Day -- 24 Weeks

Had to bust out the cell phone for my pic this week...lord only knows where my camera is. Pardon the blah bathroom, I'm working on it, maybe next week it won't look so boring!

How far along? 24 weeks

Weight gain/loss: This week: Up 3 pounds. Not surprised. There was a lot of eating out last week. Oh well. I'm growing a baby. Total: 10 pounds. The double digit landmark wasn't as scary as I was anticipating.

Maternity Clothes? Yes. And the sudden influx of warm weather....80s in April WTF....has made me realize I may need one or two more staple wardrobe pieces to get me through the summer. On a side note, while unpacking clothes yesterday I was amazed at how small some of my pre-pregnancy things looked. I held up a pair of underwear that looked child size and asked my husband if I'd EVER fit into them again. I sure hope so, they were pretty cute undies.

Sleep: Meh. I blame it on the new house. I don't sleep well in strange places, plus it's been so warm out and I refuse to use my A/C in April. The last two nights were much better though...I'm finally starting to feel more at home and I didn't hear the train, not once!

Stretch marks: Nope

Best moment this week: Seeing the crib all put together and hanging Jamie's growing wardrobe in the closet! It's a constant reminder every time I walk by the room that, holy crap we're having a baby!

Movement: We have a mover and a shaker! Adam hasn't really felt any good kicks lately and I keep trying to get him to see the movement, but usually just when I have him look Mr. Stubborn stops moving. What a stinker! Just like his mama!

Food cravings: I ate an entire pint of Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey the other night. In one sitting. That's quite an accomplishment. The funny part is I really wanted Phish Food, but I knew the hubs wouldn't touch the banana ice cream and I wasn't about to share!

Gender: BOY!

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? In. Though I noticed this week it's getting kind of shallow....I honestly don't think it will ever pop out completely. At least I'm hoping not, the outties give me the creeps.

What I Miss: Feeling in my right leg. This baby is literally on my nerves and I have a tingly thigh to prove it. I could handle the sleepy feeling, but this week with all my moving business it's started to hurt and send burning sensations down my leg....awesome.

What I'm looking forward to: Getting my hair done today!! I haven't had it done since October...before I was even pregnant. I was a little superstitious to color it during the 1st Tri no matter how many people told me it was safe. Well now I as I quickly approach the 3rd Tri I feel I'm in the clear. I cannot WAIT until 4pm....these locks need some serious TLC!

Weekly Wisdom: Cut yourself some slack now and again. You're pregnant. You aren't super woman. It's ok to sit down even though there are boxes to be unpacked.

Milestones: Vitality day!! Apparently at 24 weeks if this little man were born he'd have a chance of survival....I think we'll let him cook a little bit longer though!

Invest in a plain black maxi dress for the summer! I LIVED in mine! some cute sandals and a pretty necklace and you're all set for a night out or you can wear it to the pool!

Nikki said...

I often stare at my pre-preggers clothes and wonder if I'll ever fit into them considering there is much of my maternity wardrobe I don't really fit in anymore...in about 7 weeks I should be saying "Hello Gym!"

Mrs. Grant said...

Looking good! I agree invest in a black dress..I already have 2 & have been loving them!

Brittany said...

YOU POPPED!! You look so cute!

I am totally afraid of outtie belly buttons too. I'm afraid it's going to bust open...hubs laughs at me..a lot.

Brittany Ann said...
