|24 Week Bump Shot|
How far along? 24 weeks- 6 months - 2nd trimester
Total weight gain: 140 lbs, same as last week...15 lbs total so far.
Maternity clothes: Definitely in maternity gear. I can still work in my old wardrobe, but especially at work, maternity stockings are a must and maternity dresses are just what are the most roomy and comfortable. Still rocking out heels from time to time though! I'm trying to avoid them though to avoid any swelling- been very lucky so far!
Stretch marks? Still nothing- so thankful!
Sleep: I can't sleep! It's driving me crazy. The worst insomnia ever. I have been up past midnight the last few nights, which hasn't happened since before I got pregnant I feel like, but then having to get up for work is killing me. I just want my body to balance out, and I can't ever nap. I miss sleeping. :(
Best moment this week: My husband got lucky at the casino, so we're going to put the winnings towards starting Landon's college fund!! YAY! I was the first person in my family to go to college, so my parents never planned anything like this for me, and I can't wait to be able to have something to help Landon in the future. :)
Miss anything? Wine! I cheated today and had a small bit of coffee mixed with hot chocolate. And I MISS SLEEP. :(
Movement: Yes- lots of kicking and wiggling going on in there. AND I LOVE IT!!! Keep moving, little man!
Food cravings: Chocolate milk, french fries & frosty (I blamed my mother-in-law, as she told me her pregnancy craving with my husband was frosties, and since then, I've wanted one almost every day, but only caved in once because my husband offered to go get it! haha)
Anything making you queasy or sick? Seafood.
Labour signs: None, and hopefully none for awhile!
Symptoms: Insomnia, heartburn
Belly button in or out? Still in, but it looks different- eek!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy, and so looking forward to a long weekend. I love my job and my work, but I really need a break since I'm trying to save every vacation and sick day towards maternity leave (my work doesn't give you any paid time, ugh- so frustrating. I'm ready to move to Europe), and being pregnant, I could really use a break, so I will soak up every minute of sleep my body allows me to get this long weekend!
Looking forward to: New Years Eve- sounds like our friends made reservations for all of us to go to Eddie Cerinos (right around the corner from our house with amazing Italian) for dinner that night, then just hanging out afterwards. That'll probably be the night I pass out early when you want to stay up, lol, since I have't gotten any sleep the last few nights. Either way, I'm excited to get dressed up and have a fun group date.
