Wow...24 weeks!

How far along: 24 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 15 pounds.

Maternity clothes: Yes, and the belly has definitely "popped", but not as much as about a month from now I am guessing...:)

Stretch marks: New ones, not yet...can see some old ones looking mighty fine.

Sleep: Been sleeping better, minus the falling asleep on the couch and finally going to bed (after a bathroom break) at 3am.

Movement:  Yes, not as much as I would like to feel, but I have to remember that the little one sleeps in there too...

Cravings: If someone is talking about a certain food (really doesn't matter what it is) I will end up craving it.  Aversions: Today?  Food in general.  Just not feeling hungry.  I will eat though...for the baby.

Gender:  We are doing the surprise thing!  It sure does make people mad though...:)  I actually don't know many people in real life that are doing (or have done) the surprise thing...:)  But the ones I do meet that have end up commending us for it!  Pretty cool.

Symptoms: Not a whole lot of them this week.  Constipation has been an issue.  Asked my OB and he gave the ok to take I have had that a few times in the last few days along with Fiber One bars...

What I miss: Being pregnant with DD was a bit easier than this pregnancy (SCH complications) but honestly the things I do miss can wait 3+ months.

What I look forward to: Charlie being viable and being able to play music and feel Charlie move to it...

Moods: Eh, pregnancy hormones change my mood with a quickness...The Baby Story show on TLC has me in tears each and every time I watch it.  To think that we will be in the delivery room again in 3+ months...eeeek!

Milestones: Another week down!

Medical Concerns: None at the moment, other than I keep forgetting to call to see if I am off of pelvic rest.

Weekly Wisdom:  Crib shopping is not the most fun in the world for a 5 year old.  Next time, let her bring the DS so she isn't so bored...

Best moment this week: DH, DD and I went out to eat, after we were done the server asked if we wanted D-E-S-S-E-R-T.  I said no but then DD exclaimed "DESSERT?!?!?!"  And then she smiled so cute at the server....LOL

Worst moment this week: gas.  Enough said.


  1. You will be SOOO glad you went the surprise route on gender! We thought our birth experience was so neat because we didn't know. And we had gotten a lot of rude comments about it before we had her too, so hang in there!

  2. Ditto on the not finding out the sex thing - drives people NUTS! LOL.

    And gas? OMG. I feel ya.

    Yay for 24 weeks....seems like it's going quickly, doesn't it???

  3. 24 weeks is a big milestone - viability! "Aversions: Food" - with you on that one!

  4. I waited to find out twice - and it was really cool in the delivery room. Glad to hear you are doing well. I always hated the pregnancy constipation and gas... makes ya miserable.
