24 Weeks

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Feeling rather LARGE all of a sudden!

How far along: 24 weeks... It's so hard to believe we're at the 6 month mark!

Size of Baby: Apparently he is as long as an Ear of Corn and over a pound and a half

Gender: all blue!

Best moment this week: Finishing the registries (THANK YOU all for your help!) and seeing the baby shower invitation was definitely a highlight! My Mom picked them out on Etsy and I love them! Perfect for a Fall baby shower/pumpkin-obsessed mama like me.

Little Pumpkin Invitation.
(We changed the wording a bit and made a font change, the seller was so easy to work with!)

Weight gain: +15 lbs. total

Maternity clothes: Mixing and matching. I've been wearing my flannel button downs with a tank underneath since I can't button them

Stretch marks: None yet but it seems like my belly is growing fast all of a sudden so I'm being really diligent about applying my Mama Bee's belly butter

Belly button in or out: In but getting flatter by the day. Also of note... that belly button piercing I got at age 16 and hoped would close a few years ago is looking super stretched. Ew.

Wedding Rings on or off: On

Sleep: Not good. I cannot seem to get comfortable no matter what I do which does not bode well for the future as I get bigger!

Miss anything: Sleeping through the night... The urge to pee has come back with a vengeance.

Movement: Lots of big movements lately! He's really active in the afternoon while I'm working at my desk. I also think he is a night owl like his mama, I get the strongest kicks when I get into bed. Lets just hope the night owl thing changes once he makes his debut!

Cravings: You mean aside from eating all of the peanut m 'n ms that were supposed to be for trick-or-treaters?

Symptoms: Much to my dismay, I think the linea negra is beginning to make its appearance. Also new since the last bumpdate are some back pain and tingling in my hand (which the doc said is common depending on where the baby is sitting). Overall though, the second trimester is treating me well and I'm loving it!

Nursery: We've been super busy so not much progress since my last update, other than the glider purchase! It was supposed to be in this week but unfortunately the truck broke down (UGH!) so we may not get it until Thanksgiving since its being shipped to the store near where my parents live.

Looking forward to: Definitely Asheville this weekend with my parents and some real Fall weather! I have a few cute outfits I've been wanting to sport but it hasn't been cold enough yet.

  13. You look adorable! Enjoy Asheville, you could not have picked a better time to visit! White Duck Taco is delicious + perfect for a quick/casual lunch, Early Girl Eatery is our favorite breakfast spot {best biscuits + gravy and shrimp + grits} and Curate {chorizo potato chips} is so, so good!
