Woah…this pregnancy is flying by! Today, I am 24 weeks (or 6 months) and I feel awesome. My only complaint is the fact that I am carrying her so high that I feel like all of my organs are under my ribs and I get lots of heart burn. I don’t care though, because she is growing and moving so much and it’s freakin’ amazing! She is so active, I think we may be in trouble when she finally arrives. Here are the most recent stats….
How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain? 7 pounds (I never weigh myself, but I just went to the doctor yesterday)
Sleep? O.M.G. I invested in a pregnancy pillow called a “snoogle” and I think it is the best purchase I have EVER made…like ever. The only problem is I have to fight Belle for it every night. She loves to snuggle my snoogle.
Best moment this month? Husband was able to feel her move for the first time last week. It’s not nearly as exciting for him as it is for me, but still pretty wild.
What I miss the most? this changes daily…sometimes it’s a second cup of coffee, or a glass of wine, or my skinny jeans, but this past week I missed being able to ride all the big rides at Disney and Universal.
Emotions? I feel level-headed lately. My emotional roller coaster has stopped for now and I just feel calm and happy most of the time. I didn’t think I had much pregnancy brain, but I did give a sales clerk my wrong phone number twice yesterday, and threw away my paycheck.
Cravings: I’m just hungry most of the time. I get full really fast since everything is so high, but then I’m starving again 20 minutes later.
Belly Button? It’s halfway out and totally weird.
Wedding rings? Still on. I have not been swollen at all…yet.
Looking forward to? Choosing her name and announcing it to everyone!
Only 16 weeks to go!
