24 Weeks



How far along: 24 weeks + 4 days = 6 months!

Baby Size: Ear of corn or Eggplant

Maternity clothes: Still using whatever fits. Maxi dresses come in handy! I am always looking for new stuff since my selection is getting limited. 
 
Sleep: Sleep is good or as good as it can be with all those fun bathroom breaks all night.
  
Gender: It's a boy!

Movement: Lot's of movement these days. He loves to move early mornings and late evenings. He refuses to let others feel him move though. You can try and as soon as your hand touches my belly, he freezes. Maybe he's shy?

Best moment this week: Hearing his heartbeat at my last appointment (156 BPM), he gave the doppler a good kick. He doesn't seem to like that thing. Went to a baby expo at Babies R Us and got lots of free stuff for baby. Registered for a few FREE birthing classes. Bought an adorable outfit online for him to hopefully wear next spring.
 
Looking forward to: My next ultrasound, we'll see how much he's grown since his last scan 4 weeks ago. And looking forward to swimming this summer! Taking the classes we signed up for. Painting the nursery.
 
Food cravings: Watermelon. I want to eat the whole watermelon at one time. It's the best.
 
  Anything making you queasy or sick: Still gag when brushing my teeth, besides that everything feels pretty normal.
 
Labor Signs: Nope!
 
What I miss: Bending down quickly to grab something from the floor. I miss sleeping a full nights sleep, but I don't think I'll ever get that again. And I still miss sleeping on my stomach.
 
Symptoms: Just dealing with dry skin, but I just try to stay extra moisturized and use sunblock daily. Feeling sleepy one day but energized the next day.
 
Nursery: We started one of my major projects last week (pictures to come soon). We are also getting the carpet cleaned this week so we can start filling it up with furniture soon.
 
Belly Button in or out? I'm really surprised but it's kinda half out. I thought for sure that wouldn't happen to me since I had a really deep belly button. It's funny looking to me, I laugh.

Mood: Excited, blessed, happy....tired. LOL!
