24 Weeks: Our Little Cantaloupe!
How far along: 24 weeks
Net weight gain/loss: up 14 lbs. KILL ME.
Maternity clothes: unfortunately, since I have one pair of shorts I actually like, and the rest are kind of miserable.
Stretch marks: none yet, despite daily, panicked inspection.
Belly button: thisclose to being an outie - I'd say by next week's post, this'll be a big yes!
Sleep: still could sleep at any given second, thanks to the Unisom I'm still taking nightly to control the nausea during the day. If I skip it, I still tend to sleep fine, but I usually end up barfing :(
Baby movement: yes - lots and strong!
Gender: 100% boy!
Food cravings: french toast sticks from Burger King (post-pregnant me is grossed out reading this...)
Food aversions: beef, sweets (should make the glucose test next month fun...), etc.
What I miss: not feeling like a whale
Looking forward to: making baby boy's bulletin like I did for A's room - we bought the bulletin and fabric last night! Still need to get the whales, though!
Best moment this week: We painted the nursery gray, and then moved the nursery furniture in and placed the bedding in the crib. Now, we wait!
Milestones: Baby is viable! It wouldn't be ideal for him to be born at this point, but he could survive with intense medical intervention. Woohoo!
