How far along: 24 weeks today-roughly 16 left to go!

Size of baby: about 12 inches and just over a pound.

Total weight gain/loss: +12 pounds total

Maternity clothes: a good mixture. I broke down and bought a new pair of maternity jeans since my old ones from Lila's pregnancy are too big (insert big smile here), so I've been wearing those as much as I can because the temperature outside is starting to creep up to the mid-80's most days and I want to get some wear out of them before it's too hot! I can still wear my non-maternity skinny jeans, some shorts, and a lot of flowy tops and dresses.  

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: Yes!! She definitely has more of a pattern than Lila did. I can always feel her moving around 9am and 9pm no matter what I'm doing. The other day in church I thought she must have been doing some Jazzercise because she was wiggling around the whole service!

Contractions: I started having Braxton-Hicks contractions at around 18 weeks, which is MUCH earlier than last time, which I hear is completely normal for your second pregnancy. Although they are annoying, it's good that my body is already starting to get ready for labor.

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty good right now, although sleeping on my side is not the most comfortable thing for me to do. Plus, our house is "energy efficient" and our thermostat only goes down to 68, so I've been getting really hot at night (we love it COLD when we sleep!).  We will definitely have to get that fixed this coming month!

What I miss: everything!! I have wanted wine and champagne much more this pregnancy, but haven't given in yet.  I've also wanted sushi (the good, raw kind!) more than last time. We went on a mini-vacation to Galveston Beach a couple weekends ago and I really missed not being able to have a cocktail at the swim-up bar, although the virgin daiquiris still tasted delicious!

Cravings: Cheetos, anything sweet (mainly chocolate and cake), and deli sandwiches (yeah I know they're supposed to be a no-no, but I just try to not have them everyday!). Also, Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits and McDonald's sausage and cheese biscuits (I'm getting hungry just typing this). 

Best moment this week: Taking Lila to Froberg's Farm to pick strawberries. It was so much fun to watch her go to town and have the time of her life picking the strawberries straight from the vine and shoving them into her mouth. She is such a funny kid, and I just love watching her in her element.


  1. You're so stinkin' cute!

    I want your shorts(unless they're maternity!) Where did you find them???
