How far along: 24 weeks and 1 day
Sex of Baby W: A little lady! Her initials are DCW, but we aren’t publicly sharing the name just yet.
Weight gain: I have gained a total of 3 pounds.
Size of Baby W: ear of corn or a puffin.
Maternity clothes: All the time. My last pair of regular pants this week decided to be too uncomfortable to make it work.
Baby items: I bought a pack of headbands. We have also gotten several hand-me downs from friends.
Stretch marks: I have a couple stretch marks on each of my hips. Bummer.
Belly button in or out: It’s still in.
Sleep: Either I have to wake up to pee, or George starts stirring around 3 or 4 am. I generally don’t get back into a good sleep after that. We are adjusting George’s nap (he was still at 4 hour naps), and that seems to be helping with him snoozing a little later over night. I slept really well at my conference though!
Best moment the past few weeks: The conference I went to was really good, and it was really nice to have some time to myself before we become a family of four. We also started construction on our addition to our house.
Worst moment the past few weeks: I haven’t really had anything bad the past couple weeks.
Miss anything: Not really anything right now.
Cravings: I have been wanting chocolate baked goods. Bring on all the donuts, cake, and brownies.
Movement: She moves the most after dinner, but I am starting to feel her a lot more during the day. Tom has felt her several times, but George never stays on my belly long enough to feel her.
Symptoms/how I am feeling: I have been feeling pretty good. I did have a little morning sickness on the flight back from my conference.I have a lot of round ligament pain on my right side. I have had some cramping too. Thanks growing uterus.
Looking forward to: Seeing our addition get further along. I need to blog about how it all came together. We should be under roof here in the next couple weeks!
George knows that Sister is in my belly. We give her kisses and hugs every day.
Here is George at 24 weeks.
