I’d say baby is growing, don’t you think? I think she is laying horizontal, rather than perpendicular.
How Far Along: 24 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 6-7 pounds as of last week, but I think we have had a growth spurt! There were some days this week where I was STARVING and felt like I was constantly eating.
Gender: It’s a girl!
Movement: As I mentioned earlier, I think she is laying horizontally today (she seemed diagonal last week), so I feel her kicks and punches in my left and right side. Also, we went to the LMFAO concert last week and I swear she was loving it. That or she thought it was way too loud. She was tired (so I assume) the next day. So was momma!
Sleep: I have had a couple of 6-7 hours of straight sleep. It was GLORIOUS.
Maternity Clothes: I have been trying to wear dresses lately. I had to take one off the other day because it was kind of empire waist and was not flattering AT ALL. I have had to break out the Bella band for my pants and shorts.
Symptoms: This week I had my hand go numb and one finger. Super weird, especially the one finger. I called the doctor and they said to expect this throughout the pregnancy, but by noon she had moved and everything felt back to normal.
Also, still veiny, especially in my hands. Pretty.
Aversions: Fried food still.
Cravings: Sushi. I haven’t had any and probably won’t. My doctor said it was fine, but let’s be honest, I would just spend the entire night/day worrying about if I was going to get sick. And the roll I like isn’t even raw. Ha!
Best Moment this week: Planning for her room, looking for registry items and I won a custom stamp in a contest and ordered it with her name on it. I don’t think I had ever written down what her full name was, so that was fun --- and more official! (Name coming soon – I think!)
Also, my sister-in-law made an awesome homemade Key Lime Pie and you know how I have felt about Key Lime Pie this pregnancy. That was a definite highlight.
