Baby Wilson: 24 Weeks
How far along? 24 weeks
Baby’s size/development this week: weighs between 12.7 to 20.8 ounces and measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches long; about the size of a cantaloupe
Maternity clothes: wearing them? Yes. I just purchased some new bras over the weekend. Golly, is it inappropriate if I say that I’m getting scared of how large the girls are getting?
Miss anything? Sleeping on my back
Food cravings? If you follow me on Twitter, you would know that I had an incident with a donut on Friday. I had walked into my favorite bakery and requested my favorite donut, like I had done many times before. Much to my dismay, I was told that they no longer make my favorite donut. It had been discontinued. So, I walked out the door, extremely disappointed and started crying. Um, yes. I cried over a donut. Naturally, I took to Twitter and asked my followers where I could find a donut place in the Loop to fulfill my craving. I ate a delicious donut and all was right with the world.
Anything making you queasy or sick? The same old Starbucks coffee and cigarette smoke. Nothing new here.
Sleep: Baby has been kicking like crazy at night right before bed which has added some additional time needed for me to fall asleep. I might need to start going to bed earlier to account for this extra time.
Best moment of the week: I got a little sneak peak ultrasound and Baby is looking good. :)
Nursery: I got lots done this weekend! The nursery closet is officially cleared of all my stuff. I also moved around some other things. There is still a ton of stuff on the floor but not as much stuff as last week. :)
Wedding rings on or off? on
Movement? I've been feeling all sorts of crazy movement. Somersaults, body slams, elbow jams. It is pretty amazing. It is completely indescribable.
Weird pregnancy thing of the week: The skin dryness is still a thing. My husband says “How can your skin be dry? It is sooo humid out.” Um, because I’m pregnant apparently. But if that is honestly the worst symptom I’m feeling, there are plenty of worse things.
Daddy is feeling: pretty excited to feel the kicks and rolls too.
Mommy is feeling: excited and happy. All the registry stuff is done. The baby is moving around constantly. I’m doing my best to try and enjoy pregnancy without worrying too much (although that is much easier said than done).
Workouts this week: Other than my usual walking, none. I took it easy this week because I think I pushed it too hard last week. I have plans to hit the elliptical at some point this week so we’ll see how that pans out.
Looking forward to: the Ragnar Relay this weekend! I’ll be driving my pals from Madison to Chicago. They run and I drive and cheer. I’m very much looking forward to it and will have a post about it later this week.
