24 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along: 24 weeks, exactly

Size of baby: 1 ft. long and just over a 1 lb, about the weight of a mango, the length of an ear of corn, and the size of a spaghetti squash

Total weight gain: 18 lbs. per my dr. visit last week, however, I may be taking this off the highlights. I don't really view this as a highlight anymore!

Maternity clothes: I wear some, but they're so big! I've resorted to wearing medium sizes and then when they get to small I'll wear the true maternity clothes.

Gender: Girly girl

Food Cravings: none right now! Except I've been over indulging in candy corn like I alway do at this time of year

What I miss: still coffee, and many of you ask why I just don't drink decaf, but there's actually a lot of other bad things in coffee then just caffeine. So I'm just going to stay away for now.

Sleep: it's never enough it seems. I wake up a lot more for random things. The other night I woke up because there were finger nail clippers digging into my back. I don't know how finger nail clippers got in our bed.

Symptoms: it's getting a little harder to bend over these days, big butt sydrome, and tired, tired, tired!

Best moment of the week: Lots and lots of movement now! Yesterday we bought a glider and today we bought a crib and dresser, now we just need a baby to put in it! And guess what, we got them on Craigslist!

What I'm looking forward to: I'm too tired to think about what I'm looking forward to, I'm just trying to get to the next minute.

Thrilled to see your post and photo, Kristen! Love the vivid comparisons for size (spaghetti squash, corn ear etc) and your words for yourself (tired, tired, tired and big butt syndrome)and your shopping successes! You are bringing us far-away folks closer to you this way! You look very good even if you feel tired. Hang on--that girly-girl will be here SO soon! We are still planning on being up for a few days in the lovely month of November. Love Sue

Geez, I'd wake up with fingernail clippers in my back too! Be careful! Oh, and I'm not surprised you found your stuff on Craiglist. I'm going to start calling you Craig. Way to be thrifty, mama taught us well!
