How Far Along? 24 weeks
Size of Baby: As big as a cantaloupe & as long as an ear of corn
Weight Gain: 17 lbs. since pre-pregnancy weight
Maternity Clothes: I’m extremely thankful that maternity clothes are so comfortable. I was telling Tom the other day that I wish I could wear maternity jeans all the time! I was also happy to find maternity clothes for NFL teams, so now I’m feeling ready for football season!
Nursery: We ordered the furniture for our nursery this past week, so now I’m anxiously waiting for it to come in! Here’s a sneak peak at the crib & dresser that we purchased.
Movement: Happening much more frequently now, and I’m loving it!
Symptoms: This week I had a dream that we had a baby boy! Not sure how accurate pregnancy dreams are though…
Sleep: Sleeping much better now, and no longer having to get up in the middle of the night. Lyla has enjoyed sleeping at my feet lately, and I often wake up to her sleeping in my snoogle pregnancy pillow with me 🙂
Cravings: I was really excited when Tom told me that salted caramel mochas were back at Starbucks this week. However, it was way too hot in my non-air conditioned classroom to get my normal hot drink, so I decided to try it in frappucino form. Let me tell you, my world has been turned upside down — it’s my new favorite drink!
What I Miss: Still don’t really miss anything!
Best Moment This Week: Registering! We spent about 4 hours in Buy Buy Baby last weekend and registered for all of the big items — stroller, car seat, etc. Now we’re slowly adding everything else 🙂
Looking Forward To: Football season starting again today — Go Bears!!
