24 Weeks



Instead of a growing belly, Jason wanted to document his growing 'stach...yes, he curled it up for the pic!

How far along: 24 weeks
Size of Baby P: 11.81 inches, 1.32 pounds (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Eggplant (for weeks 22-24)
Gender: Boy
Showing: Yes
Maternity clothes: Yes
Unglamorous body changes:  This isn't an external body change, but lately I've had major rib pain.  I feel like there is too much crowding in my short torso already!
Sleep:  Good, except for a bad coughing fit on Saturday night

Movement:  Getting so much stronger and more frequent!
Food cravings:  Guacamole, rainbow sherbet, ice water with lemon
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood:  Great
Best moment this week:  Jason felt Jack's kick last Sunday, 1/20 (24 weeks, 1 day).  So happy both of us are now feeling baby boy.  On Monday, 1/21 while watching quality TV (Vanderpump Rules) Jack went crazy...he must love reality TV as much as his mama.  Not only could both Jason and I feel him kicking up a storm, but we could see the kicks!!!  One of the best moments thus far. 
Strange experiences:  Seeing Jack's kicks on my belly!  He's gonna be a soccer player...name that movie Adam Sandler fans. 
Milestones:  Baby's hair color is starting to change to the color it will be at birth.  The lungs are developing more and the baby's weight will double in the next four weeks. 
Looking forward to:  Although this has nothing to do with the actual pregnancy, I'm really looking forward to attending Blissdom this year in Dallas.  No, it's not ideal that I will be 33 weeks pregnant and likely huge, but besides the conference, I'm really looking forward to spending the weekend with my bestie Ashley...who is also pregnant and networking with other expectant bloggers!  We are planning a little preggo blogger get together while in Dallas.  I have a feeling food will be involved. 

Thoughts:   Although I've felt big and pregnant for weeks, this week in particular I must really look it.  I was stopped by so many people this week asking about the pregnancy, what I'm having, including a table at Olive Garden who was placing bets on whether it was a boy or girl based on how I was carrying...and the strange thing was they only saw me sitting!  Even coworkers in other departments commented this week that they didn't realize I was pregnant until now.

The nursery is really starting to come together.  It's not quite ready for reveal pictures yet, but here a picture from Pottery Barn Kids to show you what we are going for (except our furniture is dark wood instead of white).  We are doing lots of elephants, gray chevron and some green gingham!  As the room comes together, it feels great and is becoming so real.
