Sorry… I’m two days late on my 24 week bump update and have to blog from my phone, so no chalkboard pictures! We just moved into our new house and have no internet. We are so excited to finally be here, but the internet thing is not so great.
How far along are you? 24 weeks – 6 months!!!
How I’m feeling: If I stand for awhile my feets hurt. Belly feels like its stretching when I turn in bed. Tailbone is killing me!
Total weight gain: According to the scale at the gym – I am up 14lbs. I’ve been lifting weights and my clothes are fitting the same, so I am sure its muscle in my legs and arms! I won’t know until I go to the doctor how much I’ve actually gained.
Cool baby facts: Annabelle’s kicks get stronger every day! Her skin is starting to look more opaque and even a little pink.
How big is baby? Annabelle is the size of a cantaloupe.
Sleep:If I don’t exercise, I need a nap during the day. Haven’t been able to sleep from 3-4am lately.
Maternity Clothes: Just ordered another pair of leggings from Motherhood Maternity. I am on a hunt for another pair of jeans! Any recommendations?
Best moment this week: The woman I always stand next to at Sh’Bam saw my “Lovely Baby Bump” tank and said, “AH! I can finally say something without worrying I would offend you. You’re pregnant right?” I laughed and said, “Yes! You should’ve said something weeks ago because I want to know that I look it!” She and I chatted for awhile and she couldn’t believe I was 6 months. Yay for people noticing Annabelle in my belly!
Movement: Little Annabelle is definitely going to be a dancer like her Momma. She goes from standing and squishing my lady parts to sideways and kicking me on both sides of my belly.
Food cravings: pumpkin coffee and pumpkin sweets
Food aversions: Not really.
Belly button in or out: My bb is on its way out…
What I miss: Enjoying a glass of wine with my husband.
What I’m looking forward to: Baby shower in Connecticut on September 7th!
Randoms: A stuffy nose and sensitive gums, all symptoms I’ve read about and just acquired.
