How far along: 24 Weeks, 1 Day
Due Date: August 18, 2013
Baby’s Size: The baby is about the size of an eggplant. The other app wasn't working for me today so this is what I am going with.
Maternity Clothes: Pants yes, I am still getting by with some pre preggo tops but not many. I did pick up a few tops that I hope will get me by.
Sleep: Now that I have a back pillow I am sleeping like a baby. That is in 2-3 hour clips because of the baby sitting on my bladder.
Best Moment this week: Hearing the baby's heartbeat at the last appointment.
Worst Moment this week: Trying to figure out the logistics of this cyber baby shower so I am not talking into a camera and seeing only myself. Ugh. Thank you skype for being so very cheap.
Miss anything: Sleeping on my back, Pants that button, not peeing 3,000 times a day, Being able to sit comfortably without repositioning myself 20 times in an hour, Working out normally, Running (oh how I long to start running again!), not having to worry about how to make food safer so it doesn't effect the baby.
Food Cravings / Aversion: I have been craving carrots, celery, and just about any veggies you can list. A salad for dinner it will be. I haven't had any real aversions lately. I'll count my blessings on that one.
Movement: Tons! He is dancing up a storm in my belly. I do find it a bit funny that as soon as hubby puts his hand on my belly to feel the baby stops moving.
Gender: This baby is still all boy!
Belly Picture: The belly is growing and growing! Again please excuse the horrible hair and lack of makeup. I will try to take a better pic next week.
Baby / Parenting Book I am Currently Reading: I am still reading bringing up Bebe. It's a fabulous book but I can't seem to keep my eyes open at night to keep reading it. This is more a reflection on my tiredness than the quality of the book. When I'm not super tired its hard to put down. I may need to start reading more during the day so I can finish it. I may take a break from parenting and pregnancy books for a bit after this one.
Looking forward to: Completing the nursery for the most part. It's one room in the house that needs to be overhauled. Needless to say there will be a big garage sale in our not so distant future.
This week’s Baby Task: This week I need to paint the letters for the baby's name. Paint the nursery art that I never did last week. I also need to wash the crib bedding and blankets as well as prep all of the cloth diapers.
