How far along: 24 Weeks
Baby is size of a: according to my Ovia App he is the size of an eggplant
Total weight gain: I don’t weigh myself at home, but I will find out Friday at my next appointment
Maternity clothes: Wearing them every day! Just bought a new dress on amazon and was a little worried because it isn’t technically a maternity dress, but it was just delivered yesterday and I love it!
Sleep: Sleeping better, but he wakes me up with all the movement sometimes.
Best moment this week:
1. Craig surprising me with a “in between seasons” Fabfitfun box with some new maternity shirts for the upcoming cooler weather. He really goes above and beyond to make sure I’m comfortable and taken care of. He has to be the most creative and thoughtful man on the planet!
2. Our sunset date with McKinely…we took some great silhouette pictures. We were even able to take one of McKinley giving the peace sign which she loved—she does not like photos taken of herself, so this was a huge surprise!
Symptoms: Heartburn is still in full force…call me the Pepcid popper! Since I really do not enjoy taking medication every day I drank apple cider vinegar mixed with water before bed last night and no heartburn. I’ll be trying this again to avoid taking meds!
Food cravings: Goulash…yummm!
Food aversions: None
Name: No name yet…I’m in love with the name Curtis, but Craig has an uncle with the same name which would be a little awkward. We are still searching for a name for him.
Labor signs: Too early for that
What I miss: My non-maternity clothes…I miss having more options to pick from.
What I look forward to: Now that the nursery is painted I’m looking forward to beginning to design it
Milestones: You can SEE my stomach move when he is moving around in there
Bump: For 24 weeks I feel larger than my previous pregnancies…a little scary considering they were large babies.
