Bumpdate {24 Weeks}

{How I am Feeling} 
Good but I am really starting to slow down and my endurance is at an all time low. My husband's family visited us this past weekend and I was the old fogie slowing the group down to a snails pace. (actually I would have been eating said snail's dust) Thankfully they are awesome and put up with slowpoke me as I waddled along.

{Weight Gain} 
17 freaking pounds. I looked at pictures of myself before I got pregnant and I didn't even recognize myself.

I've been doing good! (finally) These past couple of weeks I have been doing a weight lifting program specifically for us pregos, yoga and of course almost daily dog walks. Hopefully I can keep this up but I am not holding my breath...

I am quickly running out of creative ways to make my non-maternity shirts fit me. It is getting to the point of no return and I am almost to the point where I am going to have to drop some serious dough on baby lady shirts.

I'm still sleeping well through the night (except for the nightly pee breaks) but this kid is an early riser and usually has me up by 6:30. I've always been a morning person but the 6 am wake up calls are really starting to push it. 

This was the first week it looked like the creature from 'Alien' was about to pop out of my stomach. I was sitting on the couch when all of a sudden my stomach got super tight in one spot and when I looked down a giant lump of a hand or a foot was there. When I started freaking out and yelling the lump quickly disappeared, I think I spooked the poor kid. 

{Food Cravings} 
The usual Tootsie Rolls, Twizzlers and cinnamony things.

{What I am Missing} 
Being able to have a beer with my husband and father-in-law this past weekend. *sigh* 

{Belly Button} 
Still all sorts of crazy! Part innie, part flat and part outie.

{Looking Forward To} 
Our crib arriving next week and being able to put it together! After that it is off to IKEA to find a dresser - have I mentioned how much I miss that store. It's pretty pathetic how excited I am for this upcoming shopping trip but no joke I have a countdown on my phone to IKEA day.

  1. How cute are you!!! I love the chalkboard bumpdate. Hope pregnancy is treating you well!


  2. I think I remember this was the time when my belly constantly felt stretched. Has your husband had any pregnancy symptoms yet? I don't know how common that is but mine did, most noticeably the last couple of months. I slept through the night and he was the one up three times a night to pee. And he craved red robin hamburgers while I had no cravings at all. I think the exercise will help your labor and delivery a lot. You look great.

  3. I love that you put up the past photos from the updates, it's fun seeing the changes all on one post!

  4. You are SO adorable!!! & your adorable shirt makes your bump even cuter!
