Thoughts on Pregnancy: Week 24

365 Project 2015: Day 17

Today I am 24 weeks pregnant with this little babe who is now the size of a cantaloupe! We’ve been really busy over the last week, so the blog has been pretty quiet. My parents moved in to their new home here in Lexington over the weekend. They’re still getting settled but I think they like it! I went over to their house on my lunch break yesterday and it felt so surreal. I’ve lived 900 miles away from my parents since September of 2006 and now I can just drive over to their house from my house in less than 10 minutes. I can drive from my work to their house in less than 10 minutes. Am I dreaming? Hahaa! It’s just so crazy. I’m so excited for our sweet baby to have so many family members all in one place!

How Far Along Are You: 24 weeks.
How Big Is The Baby?: He’s the size of a Cantaloupe!
How Much Weight Have You Gained?: I never remember to weigh myself, so I’m not sure! But at my last appointment I think I had gained around 13 lbs. I’m betting I’ve gained around 16 lbs or so by now.
Maternity Clothes: Other than a few stretchy dresses, footless leggings/tights, and one pair of pre-pregnancy jeans - all of my clothes are now maternity.
Stretch Marks: None!
Sleep: Sleep is getting less comfortable for sure. Whenever I change sides in the middle of the night it seems to wake him up and then I’m awake for a few minutes while he moves around. I like it though!
Best Moment This Week: Early this morning I’m pretty sure I felt him have the hiccups for the first time ever - didn’t even mind that it was like, 3AM!
Movement: I went a few days where I felt like his movements were lower down and not as strong. But I was pretty busy during that time so I probably just didn’t notice as much. Today - it feels like he might be doing buti yoga in there! ;] He’s definitely higher up/not kicking me in the bladder constantly.
Food Cravings: Um. All of the food. All of it. I’ve never been so hungry in my entire LIFE. I’ve been eating healthy for the most part but I want and need a little bit of desert after dinner. NEED. IT. I guess I am also craving Chai Tea Lattes from Starbucks too .. so yummy.
Food Aversions: Nothing really at this point. I think I could probably do guacamole and pickles now but I don’t really want to find out.
Labor Signs: Nope!
Belly Button In or Out: Pretty much flat to the rest of my stomach.
What I Miss: Sleeping on my stomach. I haven’t missed that too much so far but lately it sounds really nice. I used to *only* sleep on my stomach. I also miss being able to walk up the stairs at work without feeling like I just worked out for an hour.
What I’m Looking Forward To: Decorating the nursery and getting the rest of our house in order! Also - BABY SHOWERS.
