24 Weeks

How far along: 24 weeks today

Total weight gain: ...not sure, guessing at least +17, I'll have to update after my appointment on Wednesday. (updated: +19.6 lbs...ouch)

Maternity clothes: Sheesh, this is a hard one. My maternity clothes are too big, but my regular clothes are getting too small.  Every time that I get dressed is such a dilema! I've been wearing a lot of my flowy regular tops with my maternity shorts, but they look so baggy on me right now.  I'm really looking forward to breaking out the dresses, but it's not quite hot enough just yet. 

Stretch marks: Just the old ones on my chest that have popped up again. 

Sleep:  Pretty great still! Sleeping on my side is still annoying, but it is what it is.  I've been naturally waking up well-rested around 6:30 most mornings, which makes me really tired in the evenings, so I usually fall asleep pretty fast. 

Best moment of this week:  Having a slow week business-wise to catch up on editing and relaxing with my family.  We also moved the girls into a room together, and it is going much better than expected. I'm pretty obsessed with Lila's big girl bed, and so is she! We also got the paint for Grant's nursery, and his room is pretty much emptied of Lila's old clothes and things. 

Food cravings: Still about the same...lots of salty foods: Nachos, pizza, pickles, doritos, cheetos. I've also wanted tons of fruit this time, which was different than with both girls.

Anything making you queasy or sick: The headaches haven't bothered me near as much this past month (thank goodness!). If I eat too much, I'll feel really full and a little sick, but other than that, all is well!

Have you started to show yet: Yes, oh my Lordy! I don't remember being this big this early with either girl, but I think I was (*sigh*).  People are definitely starting to ask me when I am due and if I know what I'm having,  so I'm guessing I've moved past the point of others just thinking I gained some weight around my middle. 

Gender: BOY!!! Grant Joshua Gentry and his closet is growing by the day :)

Labor signs: The lovely Braxton Hicks started around 18 weeks.  

Belly button in or out: In

Wedding rings on or off: On most of the time, however it keeps giving me a rash (like it did when I was nursing Alli at around 4 months), so I think I have to go get it professionally cleaned since that helped the last time this happened. 

Happy or moody most of the time: A little bit of both. I've been really busy with work these past few weeks, so I feel like I've taken my stress out on Josh too much (poor guy). 

Looking forward to: Enjoying the pool and getting Grant's nursery painted and decorated.
