Good morning! Somehow, I am 24 weeks pregnant today...wow! I'm trying to do these updates weekly, but it's looking like it will be every 2 weeks instead. Oh well! Maybe spacing them out will make them a little more interesting...more room for change. Anyway, here we go:
How far along: 24 weeks
Size of baby: About the length of an ear of corn...12.5 inches long and 1.25 pound!
Total weight gain/loss: Lost 10 pounds in the first trimester and now have gained 5 of those pounds back.
Sleep: Sleeping pretty well. Getting up 1-2 times per night to go to the restroom.
Best moment of the week: Having strangers acknowledge the pregnancy. I finally feel like I'm past the "is she or isn't she" phase and now it is pretty clear that it's a baby bump!
Movement: Moving and grooving all day long! It still amazes me.
Food cravings: Veggies, sweets, smoothies.
Labor signs: N/A
Belly button in or out: In
What I miss: Sleeping on my back, wine, caffeine (I'm still having a little, just not nearly as much as I normally would)
What I'm looking forward to: The furniture coming in! I can't wait to see everything come together.
Milestones: 6 months along!
