Happy hump day! This day definitely got here a lot faster with having Monday off, and even better that tomorrow is my last work day of the week because of Inauguration. Can every week be a 3-day week? I'd be in heaven!
Anyway, I wanted to do another little bump-date on here since it's been a little bit and I have fun doing them :)
How Far Along: 24 weeks--seriously can't believe that there's only 2 more weeks of my 2nd trimester!
Size of Baby: The size/length of an ear of corn or cantaloupe (depending on the app you look at), and weighs apparently about 1 1/3 pounds
Gender: A girl! We got this adorable outfit from my friend Rachel right after we did the gender announcement and I couldn't be more in love with it
Weight Gain: about 11-12 pounds I think, although I'll know for sure next week at my doctor's appointment
Food Cravings: sweets, especially chocolate. And the nightly ice cream cravings have taken over
Food Aversions: I still don't have any aversions other than cooking fish myself.
Movement: Ohhhhhh yes! Baby girl is a wiggling, kicking machine in there! MG finally felt her moving the other week, and then he SAW her moving when she did a pretty good karate kick in my stomach one night. He's also felt her moving against his arm when we've been spooning in the mornings.
Sleep: Still sleeping through the night, sometimes for more than 8 hours which is so not like me. I will say the crazy preggo dreams have diminished for the most part, though
Clothing: Maternity bottoms all the way now. And some maternity tops mixed with looser fitting shirts. I wore a maternity top the other week and some of my 5th grade girls were giddy when they saw me, saying "you're getting bigger!" haha
This was the day that I looked down and was like "oh wow, the bump definitely got bigger today"
Other Pregnancy Symptoms: I just feel really "full" all the time, especially after dinner. It's like my skin is stretched to the max (well, because it is lol).
What I Miss: I really can't say I miss much other than that delicious turkey sandwich from the deli nearby. I'd have that over a glass of wine right now any day :) Oh, and maybe not needing to pee every 30 minutes lol
Best Moment: when MG got to SEE baby girl moving around--I think he was pretty impressed, and it was a really special moment for both of us.
Looking Forward To: baby shower planning, and getting the nursery set up once we start getting things like the crib, etc.
And we have another ultrasound appointment next Tuesday so we'll get to see baby girl again which we're both looking forward to!
That's it in bump-land for now!
Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I to share what's hap-"pinning" with you!
