24 Weeks!

How far along? 24 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  +20 pounds. Heading back to the doctor in a few days, so we'll hear the final holiday break eating verdict then.

Maternity clothes? Definitely on the bottom. I'm still trying to wear as many of my tops as possible.

Stretch marks? None, though I hear rumors that this is about the time they show up with vengeance.

Sleep: Trying to catch up as much as possible with these days off for break. I will certainly miss my naps when school starts back up.

Best moment this week: Getting a glimpse at how loved she will be. I think she got more presents than we did!

Miss Anything?  Nothing really stands out. . .

Movement: I'm feeling some flips and flutters. The best part was when I was out walking one day last week and I tried to pick up the pace. She didn't like that too much and gave me a good 'ol kick to show her disapproval.

Food cravings: Starbucks Peppermint Mochas, mmm. Really, anything with peppermint!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing stands out in particular this week.

Have you started to show yet: Yes! There is a bit of a bump there.

Gender: A sweet baby girl!!!

Labor Signs:  Nope.

Belly Button in or out? In, but it's trying to pop out.

Wedding rings on or off?  On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy for the most part, but there are always those mood swings;-)

Size of Baby: Sweet girl is the size of a cantaloupe this week. Must be about the smallest cantaloupe ever because I can't imagine her being that big yet!

Looking forward to: Our two appointments on Wednesday (one with the regular OB and the other with the Fetal Maternal Specialists. I hope we get to see her on the big screen!

I can't believe we only have four months left!!


  1. I felt so much relief at making it to 24 weeks. It's a good milestone. Congrats!
