24 Weeks!

How far along: 24 weeks!
How big is baby:  The size of a grapefruit!  On a different ‘size’ note, my uterus is now about the size of a soccer ball!  That’s cool!
Weight gain/loss: +11-12lbs.  The same as last week.  Thankfully.
Stretch marks: Same as before.
Maternity clothes: Considering moving into my larges on some of them! AH!
Sleep: Not bad.  Waking up to move the pillows stuffed around my body stinks, but other than that, it’s pretty good!
Food cravings or aversions: Just food.  I’ve craved a lot of soft serve ice cream this week.  But really, I just love food.  Mexican food is also delicious!
Gender: BOY!
Movement:  Lots!  Some are painful, others are just downright cool.  I love to watch my belly move from the outside. 
Belly button: Flat. Gross.
What I'm loving:  Just carrying my baby?  Ha.  I’m really not ‘loving’ or ‘hating’ anything right now.  Just kinda…goin’ through the motions.
What I miss: Not having pelvic pain when walking, rolling over, putting on clothes, or doing anything that requires my lower half to move.
What's different this time:  My pelvic pain is getting kinda uncomfortable to be only 24 weeks.  But other than that, I guess it’s all just the same ole’ same ole. 
Not much interesting to say this week.  This week flew by and I can’t believe in 3 weeks I’ll be going into my 3rd trimester.  It really blows my mind!  Actually, this whole pregnancy has flown by so far.  I bet it starts dragging a little bit towards the end though. 
This is me…in all my glory.  Smile
