How far along: 24 weeks
Baby Size: ear of corn according to one email I got
Maternity clothes: Not yet....but probably should be. I'm still just stuffing myself into my regular clothes. I hope to get some non-maternity skirts and maxi dresses this weekend to get me through the rest of the summer.
Stretch marks: Still none (that I can see...I don't exactly go searching for them too hard, though, because I'm too scared of what I might find ha-ha)
Sleep: decent - still waking up, tossing and turning a lot but I'm kinda getting used to it.
Gender: lil' boy
Movement: I definitely feel him more. And just yesterday I was able to see my belly move a little when he kicked.
Looking forward to: doing some 'stock up' shopping trips. I want a good stock pile of basic necessities (baby and non-baby related) to have around so it's one less thing to have to worry about once baby gets here. Yeah, I'm a bit crazy like that :)
Food cravings: still lots and lots of fresh fruit! I went raspberry and cherry picking over the weekend and LOVE having lots of fruit in our fridge!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Labor Signs: None, thankfully.
What I miss: having hormones that are in check, enjoying a glass of wine on our back deck, and feeling/looking like my normal self.
Symptoms: still so much pressure in the lower belly - either something is wrong or I'm just carrying REALLY low - it's crazy and so annoying! The lower back still gets bothersome/achy sometimes, too. Oh, and the constant peeing...yeah, I'm so over that!!!
Nursery: Nothing new in this department...hoping to buy some furniture soon though.
Belly Button in or out? In and still have my belly button ring in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Workouts: Still able to keep up with my workout routine of working out 5 or 6 times a week.
Things that suck: starting to cry on the drive home from the gym...for no apparent reason. Yeah, wacky hormones definitely suck! Oh, and making decisions...like daycare...and a name for the little guy...and car seats and strollers...and all that...Oy!! :/
Things that don't suck: Feeling fantastic on this past Saturday's long run. I felt like I could run for forever. Runs like this are few and far between these days so it felt good to feel this way.
