24 Weeks

Many things have progressed! I am now 25 weeks, and I'm posting late because Memorial weekend was so busy!

24 weeks :)
I fell in LOVE with this dress because it fits me in all the right places
Target- Liz Lange $25 (more expensive, but worth it)
Looking back, my tummy has certainly grown, but it's hard to tell a true difference from 20 weeks. 

How Far Along: 24 weeks

Gender: Girl

Total Weight Gain: 17 pounds. I feel like I move so slow! I would LOVE to stay within the 25-30 pound range by the end of this! Trying not to stress about the gain :)

Maternity clothes: I just purchased a pair of white shorts that were life savers this weekend, a beige striped tank, and a swimsuit. I'll post a pic when I'm not working and actually able to relax by the pool! Pea in the Pod is expensive, but ladies, invest! You must! 

Stretch Marks: None, woohoo! I'm still lathering myself up, even this week until the end.

Sleep: Every night about 3-4 times I wake up. It could be her or just bathroom runs. I made a pillow fortress (8+body pillow to be exact) after last week's horrible sleep episode and can sleep wonderfully other than the usual. 

Movement: Yes! It is crazy how much she moves. Sometimes, I wonder if she can ever sleep. Everyone can feel her and soon, I'll record a video of it. It just makes me want to see her more and more!

Cravings: Of course Target bread sticks and pizza will always be the picture. I love the spicy pringle flavors! Don't worry, I eat healthy :)

Symptoms: I would say there is so much movement that it can become uncomfortable and sore. Sometimes, I just want her to stop! No headaches. Figuring out how to sleep soundly was a task and I'm still sorting that. I am slow to move everywhere and sometimes feel down about it, but really try to stay positive by being open about it.

Belly Button In or Out: It's halfway out still. It's like the top only :)

Exercise: My grandparents were in town for a week and I never did. I know, sounds bad, but now that they are headed back, it is time to get on schedule! Walking 2-3 times a week for 2 miles, pushups against the wall, squats, planks, and leg pushes.

Nutrition: Nothing different here! I may have been less nutritious since my grandparents came into town, but I'm gonna crack down now!

Next doctor's appointment: 28 week June 18th-just a check up!

It really wasn't bad last week! It tasted like a soda AND they offered me fruit punch flavor! No one should be afraid of the  Glucose Drink :)
