How far along: 24 Weeks
How big is baby: 11+ inches, over a pound. Picture an ear of corn.
Total weight gain: +8.5lbs. Enormous appetite means extra pounds packed!
Maternity Clothes: Bought two maternity t-shirts on clearance at Target. And tried on my first pair of maternity jeans. But I didn’t buy them yet. Man those things are comfy – but SO baggy in the front.
Sleep: Still great. And still needing lots of it.
Best moment of the week: A nice, relaxing Saturday with my hunny.
Food Cravings: Holy moly all of a sudden this baby is STARVING. Or at least I am. I’m a bottomless pit. I could eat all day – and sometimes I do. We might have finally hit the point in my pregnancy where I shouldn’t have trouble packing on the lbs.
Food Aversions: Well, I think I’m a bit lactose intolerant.
Symptoms: Again, eating EVERYTHING in site. Bottomless pit. And I’ve been a bit weepy + sentimental.
Movement: Lots of it. This is the time (weeks 24-28) I’m supposed to feel him moving a lot, and boy is he making sure I am.
What I’m looking forward to: Time with J.
What I miss: Cool falls.
