24 Week Bumpdate

How Far Along: 24 Weeks 4 days

Size of Baby: A garden eggplant or a cantaloupe 

Gender: GIRL!

Sleep: On and off sleep. Typically, I get about 4-5 hours of sleep a night. After talking with my doctor about it on Monday, she said it's not typical that women have trouble sleeping at this point so we're hoping it's just a phase. I think it has more to do with renovation stress. Praying that ends soon so I can see if my sleeping pattern gets better. 

Movement: Much more this week! Josh was able to feel her move a few nights ago. At work this morning, we were able to see her kicking against the left side of my belly through my dress!

Workouts: Sadly, no. Hopefully when I'm off of work in a few days, I will develop some type of routine. 

Weight: 18 pounds. Yikes!

Maternity Clothes: Mixing and matching. Mostly maxi dresses that I just go up a size or they have a lot of room originally. 

Symptoms: All day Monday I guess I hadn't eaten enough (before going to the doctor in the afternoon) that I developed the WORST headache. It rivaled the ones I got in the first trimester. That headache kept me up for most of the night Monday night. I probably slept about 2 hours. The next day was pretty bad. Other than that, I've been feeling great. 

Cravings/Aversions: Right now, I'm on a waffle kick. I've been eating blueberry waffles every morning before work. Yum!

Missing Most: Missing the sanity of my organized house. I had a little breakdown yesterday saying I wanted to move out of my house. The dust, the disorganization, the frozen meals/eating out, etc. is start to get to be a bit much. 

Nursery:  No progress on the nursery. It's a storage area for the paragraph above. 

Hubby: He's been very, very patient with me this week. On Monday when I felt bad, he waited on me hand and foot and even checked on me several times in the middle of the night. When he sees my Nook light up in the middle of the night, it must not be good :)  

Best Part of the Week: The best part of this week was Monday. My mom and I went to my OB appointment where we had an extra ultrasound because they couldn't see the heart last time. Well, baby cooperated and we were able to get the pictures we needed. She wouldn't show us her face this time but we did get to see her kick her little legs. So special to share that with my Mom. 

Can't Wait For: I'm reaaaaallly looking forward to Josh and I's babymoon coming up. I'm so glad I went ahead and booked it a couple months back. We leave May 31 and I think what my brain and body need is a getaway. 

I'm so thankful that I am at this point in my pregnancy, this point in my house renovation, and this point in the school year. Typically, I'm such a positive person. I feel like I've kind of lost that over the past three weeks and I'm really looking forward to getting it back. I think I'm overwhelmed and tired. I definitely don't want to sound unappreciative or like a chronic complainer because I strive every day NOT to be like that. I chose this renovation, I chose this job, I wanted this pregnancy. I never want to sound ungrateful. Counting my many blessings today and always. I think I just need to give myself some grace. 

 I got this sweet little gift this week with the most touching card. I think it will be great in our girl's room and I know I will use it to pray for her until she gets here and after her arrival.
