How far along: 24 weeks
Total Weight Gain: I think I have gained about 12-13 pounds. The past two weeks I was really good about eating healthy and limiting my sugar intake, so we will see when I go to the doctor next.
Maternity clothes: All maternity bottoms or bella band. I can still wear regular flowy dresses, but have bought one size up if I buy anything new. Mix of maternity and regular tops…mainly maternity.
Gender: A still unnamed Boy! We have had some progress here and both have a name we like, but Tommy won’t commit because he has a friend from high school who has a kid with the same name. I get it because about 99% of the names I like also are used by someone I know. Sigh.
Movement: He moves quite a bit at night, but still not as much as I remember Emmy moving. I am willing him to be a very chill child ;).
Sleep: Up at least once a night to go to the restroom. Can no longer sleep on my stomach.
Cravings: Salads. Oh, and I did have a day where only Mexican food would do!
Symptoms: My gums are starting to bleed. With Emmy my hair fell out in normal amounts and I never had a huge hair loss after she was born. However, with this baby, I have lost no hair and have noticed that I look a lot more floofy! (Is that a word?)
What I am looking forward to: Getting his room in some semblance of order. It is a huge disaster. I am also looking forward to wearing fall maternity clothes. I have several maternity pants, but it is too hot to wear them.
Best moments: Getting the bedding ordered. I am using someone different than with Emmy (who I thought did a great job), but went with someone local. I am hoping she does just as nice of a job…
Feeling the baby more!
