24 weeks

How far along:  24 weeks

Baby size:  A cantaloupe!  Or as long as an ear of corn.

Baby's progress:  Baby is beginning to fill out and their features are becoming more defined.

Weight gain:   1 pound over pre-pregnancy weight!  I am SO excited that I've finally hit some consistent weight gain.  

Stretch marks:  Still in the clear.  I've started adding Burt's Bees vitamin E oil at night too.

Sleep: Still doing well.  I very rarely wake up for potty breaks at night, but I can't sleep past 7 AM anymore!  I have to go to the bathroom by then.

Gender: Check back in December!

Movement:  Big movements!  It's fun to watch my stomach jump with a kick or punch from baby.

Best moment this week:  In all honesty - my 2 hour nap on Sunday :)

Looking forward to: Our upcoming babymoon!!  It's going to be a quick, fast trip.  With all of the hard work Justin has been doing at home, he deserves this more than me.

Food cravings: There is nothing that I HAVE to have this VERY minute.  I keep waiting for an insane craving to hit.  I still lean towards salty food and salads.

Belly Button - In or Out:  In, but much shallower.

Anything making you queasy or sick:  Not really.  My appetite is still small so I try to eat what I'm hungry for as soon as I want it.

Wedding Rings - On or Off:  On. Thankfully we never got it re-sized and it's a touch loose.  

Labor signs: No and I'm hoping they stay away for at least the next 13 weeks.

What I miss:  Nothing really.  I feel great, my mood is upbeat and I'm loving being pregnant.

Symptoms: This big bump!  I keep forgetting that it's there and I'm running into things!

Workouts: Still walking every day and squeezing in a routine in the evenings.  I hope when it cools off some more Justin and I can get back into some (easy) hiking.

Things that suck:  My need to slow down.  We have so much going on, I want to help out more!

Things that don't suck:  My mood (still upbeat and happy!!) and laying in bed with Justin listening to him talk to the baby.  Melt my heart.  I didn't know I could love him this much.

And a fun comparison:
