24-week bumpdate

How far along:
24 weeks ... aka 6 months BOO YA!

Baby Size: a cantaloupe -- durn that girl is getting big 

 Weight gain: 121.2 -- total weight gain to date ...15.2 ibs. This is better than I thought it'd be.

Maternity clothes: NO clothes!  jk... yeah I be wearing some maternity thangs and some regular thangs. I did buy two new bathing suit tops to hold the new gals I've acquired :)! I'm going to sport the bikini while preggers. I apologize in advance to any eyes that will be offended by that. 

Stretch marks: nope

Sleep:  It's good. Still can't get enough though.

Gender:  A goyle

Movement: Lots and love it. I love watching her move. I could stare at my belly for hours. It has replaced the TV. Just makes me happy (unless she drop kicking my bladder or something.. that's not comfortable)

Best moment this week: Our appointment was really good -- we learned a TON about breastfeeding and the midwife was so informative and helpful. They gave everyone baby dolls (men included) and I popped the head off mine... I've got some practicing to do....obviously.

Started going to a chiropractor again so that's been fun. Just want to make sure I'm all aligned and that canal be open and ready for a big ol baby head. 

Going strawberry picking with Mike and day dreaming about doing that stuff one day soon with our little nugget. There were little kids just covered in strawberry juice. It was so adorable. I think they got the picking part down but the berries never made it to the basket. I totally get it.

Looking forward to: seeing my sister and her family this weekend. It's going to be a really hard weekend as we say good bye to them (they are moving back to Germany) but it's been nice having this year to spend with them. 

Food cravings:  Nothing - just normal stuff. Boring.

  Anything making you queasy or sick: nope

Labor Signs: Not that I'm aware of. Speaking of labor, we're trying to figure out what birthing class to take. I'd love to take a Bradley course but they're so expensive. I'm not sure it's worth it. Anybody taken normal birthing classes in the raleigh area? Are they good? suck? Lamaze?

What I miss:  I still miss having wine with my friends or with Mike. I never realized how much of a big social thing it was for us (that could be a bad thing...). It's not like we got drunk but we always enjoyed having a neighbor or friend come over and enjoy a drink a two. I miss that.

Symptoms: I think I'm starting to walk funny.... the pregnant waddle

Nursery: You won't believe it.. we actually did something this week! We picked out the closet organizer thing last night from Home Depot. Goal for this upcoming week is to install it.

Belly Button in or out? It's making its way out

Wedding rings on or off? On 

Mood:  Gooooooood. Starting to nest I suppose or could just be my natural desire to get things done.


  1. Awwww I love this little update! You are SOO CUTE! Everyone knew you would be the cutest pregnant momma ��

    I know it will be hard to say goodbye to your sister and family. I hope they have safe travels. Wish them well for me! I'll be praying for them.
