Look at that. 24 weeks. Altho, if all goes well and I have this baby on my scheduled c-section date, I only 15 weeks left of my pregnancy. Can I get a high five? I have a feeling with everything that still needs to be done before then, those 15 weeks are going to fly by.
I'm definitely feeling more like a whale than a regular person these days. This pregnancy things have progressed so much faster. (Comparison photo with Vinny at 24w here.) Because of it I'm pretty self-conscious about my bump. I know there's no hiding it, but with the right clothes I can make it look smaller than it actually is. Cardigans. They are my best friend.
Oh, and yes, I've been taking my weekly bump photos in the office bathroom. As much as I wanted to document this pregancy with my real camera, I just never happened. Convenience of the iphone won, again.
How far along? 24 weeks
Maternity clothes? Maternity clothes are in full force lately. Comfort has been key so as much as I want to rock a great pair of skinny maternity jeans, I always choose leggings instead. And, as much as I told myself I would never do it, I wear them as pants. *gasp* With several trips to Target this week I've picked up a few maxi dresses and I cannot wait to trade my leggings in for them once the weather permits.
Stretch marks? Not one!
Sleep: I've definitely been more tired than usual the last few weeks. Almost to the point of 1st tri tiredness all over again.
Best moment this week: Wednesday's 70 degree and sunny day. It felt so great to get outside and put some flip flops on. It's been the longest winter in Minn ever and we are going a tad stir crazy.
Miss Anything? Definitely could go for some sushi. Coupled with a glass of wine!
Movement: So much movement - all over! I love it. While at work I find myself starring at my belly watching all the kicks and punches. It's definitely my favorite part of pregnancy.
Food cravings: Like I said, sushi would be awesome right now. Altho I am back on my root beer float kick like I was when I was pg with Vinny. I can't get enough.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: 15 more weeks until we'll know!
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? It's trying to pop out. It's not visible under my clothes - yet!
Wedding rings on or off? I think they may be officially off. I didn't swell up as fast as I did when I was pregnant with Vinny, but it's come to a point where they will go on in the morning, but I have to use soap to get them off in the evening.
Happy or Moody most of the time: As much as I want to write happy, it would be a lie. This week has been rough. I kinda felt like I've been getting smacked at all angles of life this week and, because of it, I've been a little more quiet than usual and definitely a little down.
Looking forward to: Going shopping all by myself on Saturday for a few hours. I don't even remember what that feels like. Just me, the mall, my list and starbucks in hand. It's going to rock.
