Week 24

How far along?  24 weeks

Baby is the size of:  A cantaloupe

Maternity clothes?  Oh yeah.

Rings on or off?  On... still!

Sleep:  Meh. Depends on the night.  Tried some nose strips earlier in the week, it helped my stuffy head a bit.  Most of the congestion seems to be gone now... that may be due in part to the fact that it rained most of the week and that kept the pollen down.

Belly Button: Innie... for now... 

Exercise: Did pilates 3 times this week and walked on the treadmill twice.

Food cravings:  CHOCOLATE!  Angel food cake, feta cheese, and you guessed it... strawberries.  Yes, I did impulse buy another flat of those ruby gems today.  I just couldn't pass them up.  I think I've eaten about a pint so far.  I may or may not share with M.  We'll see.

Movement: Apparently, the little man likes hockey.  We were at a game last night and he was going crazy.  M got to feel him move for the first time!!! Usually, I'll say, "Feel here, he just kicked", and then by the time M gets his hand over there, the little guy has stopped. Not the case last night.  He was very active, and the kicks are getting stronger.

Best moment of the week:  Date night last night was fun!!  I'll post about that separately.

Fun fact:  His skin is looking pink this week... he's developing capillaries beneath the skin that will make him look a little less albino. 

Symptoms:  My tailbone hurts... yuck. I haven't been moving around as much at work, now that training my replacement is almost done... So I'm doing mostly computer stuff.  Even though I make a conscious effort to get up and walk around every hour, my tailbone is still store by the end of the day!  

Mood?  Some anxiety, irritation.

Looking forward to:  Dr. appointment this week. 

Not looking forward to:  Glucose test this week.
