I get so emotional, baby…every time I think of you. yep, that is my theme song these days. I am watching tv, something sad happens…I cry. Someone says something to me…I take it personally…I cry. I feel chunky and lazy…I cry. I have a bad swim…I cry. I am driving and thinking about the future…I feel so excited and happy…I cry. blah blah blah
How far along? 24 weeks on Sunday February 19, 2012
Weight gain/loss: +15.8 pounds
Size of baby: the size of a grapefruit and my uterus is approaching the size of a soccer ball (according to week 25)…EEEYIKES!
Maternity clothes? none…and I still fit into my swimsuits
Stretch marks: none
Belly Button in or out? I am not sure what is going on here. I have noticed a raised ring forming around my belly button…possibly the top of my uterus?
Sleep: this week it was hurting my belly to sleep on my side and I am not supposed to sleep on my back and the front is just not happening…not good sleep this week…
Food cravings: yogurt of ANY sort
Food aversions: Starbucks…I just don’t want it anymore…it must have been at least several months since my last Americano.
Pregnancy Signs: sore muscles (maybe time for that prenatal massage). We went out to Mt Vernon on Monday to check out G Washingtons place. a lot of walking and uphill…I had a hard time with it…felt like my heart was going to explode. And then next day my legs were so sore and achy :/ I wish I could swim everywhere.
Movement: lots to feel AND see! he must take after his Mommy…in the sense that he can not sit still…and does not seem to want to sleep much. On the other hand…my increase in appetite leads me to believe he takes after his Daddy as well!
What I miss: Riesling
What I am looking forward to: Spring is coming!
Best moment this week: seeing the smile on my Mommy’s face when she saw and touched my belly. hehe
Weekly Wisdom: one of my most favorite mottos…Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
Milestones: got the last of our big furniture for baby Ps room and about finished a registry. I found a really neat site to do a registry…actually more of a wish list…called BabyLi.st.
Going the Distance: baby P has swam: 248.52 miles and biked: 1026.48 miles
