24 Weeks!

Being just 3 short months away from my due date is both exciting and kind of surreal. There’s still so much hubby and I have to do to prepare, but we’re looking forward to finally holding baby in our arms.

I know I mentioned in earlier posts that hubs and I are working on refinishing the floors in our home. We spent the past week having a few flooring companies come out and give estimates for the work. I think we’ve pretty much decided on the company we’re going to move forward with, we now just need to choose a stain color.

How far along? 24 weeks

Symptoms: I’m peeing more often, it feels like very 15-30 minutes. I have some occasional soreness from sleeping on my left side and the pressure it puts on my back, hip and thighs.

Sleep: Still using my Snoogle and sleeping well most nights. I have some hip and lower back pain some nights/mornings from sleeping on my left side.

Total weight gain/loss: Haven’t gained (or lost) any other weight since my last posting.

Maternity clothes? Haven’t made any new clothing purchases this week, but my mom was kind enough to pick me up 2 new pairs of cute sandals and a comfy pair of nude ballet flats.

Movement: Baby is becoming more and more active as each day passes. I still feel most of the movements at night, but I do get a few kicks if I’m sitting too long.

Food cravings: Gummy Bears! I don’t know why, but they’re so yummy.

What’s making me sick: No feelings of sickness or queasiness this week.

Looking forward to: Still eager to see a 3D or 4D sonograms of Lil Bit’s face. I’m also looking forward to finally painting the nursery and just preparing for baby’s arrival in general.

Best moment this week: Feeling more movement, little karate kicks and all.

Worst moment of the week: I had Braxton Hix contractions during an office potluck, which sent me in a bit of a panic. Spicy chili and lack of staying hydrated were the contributing factors. I make doubly sure now that I’m getting all the fluids I need and I’ve stayed clear of spicy foods.
