24 weeks

How Far Along? 24 weeks

Maternity Clothes? Yep.

Weight Gain? Too afraid to check; Lately I have been starting to feel big. (Updated: I bit the bullet and got on the scale. Gain is 22.5; I know it is a normal part of pregnancy. Scale is not my friend though.)

Stretch Marks? No

Sleep? Really good. i'm a bit amazed actually.

Best Moment of the Week? We ordered some baby announcements to send out to a few people who don't know yet and they arrived in the mail this week. Made DH and I smile.

Movement? yes, daily. feels like an alien in me, rolling over and over and over.

Food Cravings? i like fruit. bubbly drinks. peanut butter.

Gender? will know in 16 weeks (give or take a few)

What I miss? My wedding rings, I strongly dislike tight rings, so haven't been wearing them

Symptoms: Sinuses and allergies are rough, but not keeping me down. Otherwise, I feel good.

What I'm looking forward to? A bunch of hand me downs a friend will be bringing over. And looking forward to making progress on my to-do list.

Weekly Wisdom: Enjoy today.

Milestones: viability- crazy to think that a) I've reached this point and b) that babies born this young can survive

Emotions: Total scatterbrain. I can't get anything done at work. I feel like I am in a fog, running in circles. So unlike me.


  1. Hurray for this milestone!!!! And Hurray for not finding out the gender! We didn't find out and it was the BEST SURPRISE of my life...it's so exciting!!!!
