How far along: 24 Weeks
Maternity clothes: Being stuck in some semi-winter weather is nice so I can wear cute maternity sweaters. Target and Kohl’s are my “go to ” stores to find things to wear. Thankfully I am out of town so I can get away with wearing the same clothes all of the time!
Stretch marks: No.
Sleep: I forgot how much I like to sleep on my stomach. I have found by having three pillows has helped me sleep better, so it’s improved this week.
Best moment this week: Feeling him kick a lot harder. Olivia was leaning on my belly and he kept kicking her. Already having the sibling rivalry!
Miss anything: Being in shape. It’s going to be a long process to get back to what I used to be (even before Olivia), but I have some major motivation coming up with a husband in remission and some planned mountain bike and running races.
Morning sickness: I’ve been a little nauseous this week. I honestly think it’s because I am always just grabbing quick things and need to slow down a little bit.
Movement: Like I said, he is definitely kicking a lot harder. I love it.
Food cravings: Sweets. I go in for another glucose test this week so if it is positive, I am in really big trouble.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smelly cab I took today. Definitely sitting in a car for a long period of time. I have been getting car sick so bad!
Have you started to show yet: Yes. It made me feel better to hear stories from my friends this week about how rude people were to them about their pregnancy size. I have been hearing comments and gasps all week as I walk around and it gets to me at times. I know it will get to the “I don’t care” stage eventually.
Gender prediction: Boy.
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: Still flat and weird.
Wedding rings on or off: Off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Sleepy. Is that an option? I don’t think Olivia helps!
Looking forward to: Being home soon. It will be good to get everything back to normal. Can’t wait for Mike to get back home and we can have some down time before little boy arrives!
