24 week Bumpdate!

This week: It is hot. That's all I can think about this week. Oh, and that June is finally here!! :) I've also reached viability!! It is amazing to think that our baby girl is just growing bigger and stronger from here on out.

How far along? 24 weeks! 

Baby's size: Baby P is the size of a cantaloupe!

Total weight gain: At my appt. yesterday, I was up 1 pound, for a total of 4 lbs. I seriously don't know how I'm not gaining more weight but my doctor told me that everything is good, so I'm good. I know I'm walking way more and probably eating better.

Maternity clothes? Rotating the same old. I got to try out my maternity bathing suit this weekend and it was pretty comfy.

Stretch marks: Negative.

Sleep: Not good in the heat but glorious in the AC. I'm still so tired in the morning, though.

Best moment this week: Jeff got to feel the little miss move!! His face was precious when he felt it and it was so amazing to be able to share that with him.

What I miss: Same. Summer drinks. Oh, and New England June weather. What's up with the heatwave?!

Movement: All the time! She is one very active little girl! I've noticed my belly moving and it's the coolest thing to watch.

Food cravings: Pink lemonade and slush!! I have yet to find a place around here that sells slush. So weird.

Food aversions: I think meat still. I haven't even tried to eat it. 

Gender: Pink! Pink! :)

Belly button - in or out? In but it's a weird shape.

Wedding rings - on or off? Rings are on. If it's hot at night I will take them off but they're mostly back on with the AC on.

Symptoms: Tired and hot. Oh, and swollen feet. I legitimately had cankles the other night. Frickin' cankles!!!!!!

Mood: It was an emotional weekend, my hormones are out of control, but I think that was a fluke and I'm mostly happy.

Looking forward to: Registering and furniture shopping!! Haven't I said this the past two weeks? I think we're really going this weekend. I also ordered fabric swatches for the custom crib bedding and I can't wait to see it!
