How far along? 24 Weeks!
How big is baby? She’s about 1.3lbsand measures about 11.8″ long from crown to heel, according to BabyCentre.ca.
Total weight gain/loss: I weighed myself a few days ago and I’ve gained a couple pounds. It’s hard to explain since I lost about 4-5lbs during my first trimester. I’ve since gained that weight back to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, plus another 8lbs. So really, I weigh about 128lbs.
Maternity Clothes? I had to go buy a couple new bras because a) the underwire in one of my bras “went” and b) my nude bra way too uncomfortable. I had a feeling that my boobs got bigger too, so I figured I’d try on a bigger size just in case. Umm, yeah, they did. LAME. Kyle said it’s a good thing, but I say, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall …”
Stretch marks? Still none. I just don’t think they’re going to happen.
Sleep: I’m starting to find that it’s getting really hard to get comfortable at night. The other night I was spooning with Kyle’s pillow after he left for work just for extra belly support. I may have to find another pillow for when he’s home though.
Movement: Lots, especially when I’m trying to relax. At my massage appointment on Friday I was laying on my back and she was kicking like crazy! Even the masseuse noticed and asked me afterwards. They must have been some pretty big kicks considering I was underneath a blanket and a sheet! What a little monster …
Food cravings: Still nothing out of the ordinary, but it feels like I’m ALWAYS hungry.
What I miss: Being comfortable and taking sinus medication. Now that the weather is starting to warm up I’m getting the worst sinus headaches. THE WORST. It’s awful.
What I am looking forward to: Painting the baby’s room. Because of recent current events in my family’s life, my mom and I have postponed painting. It’s not a huge rush, but it will be nice to get it done so we can buy furniture and have somewhere to set it up.
Milestones: I’ve done a little bit of baby-related shopping. Our travel system arrived at Babies R’ Us, so I put that together Saturday afternoon. (It’s soooo pretty!). I also found a really cute bedding set on Costco’s website for a crazy-good price, so I bought that too. Yay shopping!
