24 Weeks...Still a Papaya!

How far along am I? 24 Weeks 1 day
Total weight gain? I find out in 4 days...I know it's over 10 pounds...maybe 15??? :( I've grown a lot this month.
Sleep? Sleep is great! I love to sleep. (Still no naps, though)
How am I feeling? LARGE! I feel great just a little tired at night.
Best moment this week? Getting two of my shower invitations in the mail. They are so cute! Buying new maternity clothes this week, finding a bookcase for Logan's room, and Chris feeling him move more.
Movement? He is moving mostly at night, and it is very low in my belly
Belly button? It's still in
Food cravings? cheese dip, sweets, and apples
What I am looking forward to? Hanging out with my sister in law, niece, and pregnant cousin Melanie this weekend. I can't wait for Saturday! Also, I go to the doctor on Monday for my 24/25 week appointment.
Milestones? Your baby isn't just sitting around (on your bladder) doing nothing, he's working hard preparing for life outside the womb—perfecting his lungs and packing on the pounds. He'll gain ½ pound this week alone. Other highlights this week:Things are starting to get a little crowded inside the old womb as baby grows bigger and bigger. Your ribs are probably pining away for the good old days when they didn't have a foot permanently lodged between them. Hate to break it to you, but it's going to get worse before it gets better.Your baby's ears are fully functional now. And since they are, you may notice that loud noises and sudden movements can startle the little bugger. He's getting used to the everyday sounds inside the womb: the sound of your heart beating, your lungs inhaling and exhaling air, the growling of your stomach because your partner promised he'd be right back with that double cheeseburger and he's taking forever! He'll even be able to hear your voice when your partner finally arrives and you ask him where the bleep he's been! So talk nice!

  1. This is week 9 for me and by far the best bc I got to see you. Logan's nursery is adorable and you are still glowing. I hope that I do as well as you have with the pregnancy. So far so good!!!! I can't believe our kids are going to be the same age. We couldn't have planned it any better. I love you.
