24 Weeks

How Far Along: Week 24 is complete!

Size of Baby as Relative to Common Household Fruit or Vegetable: Baby is the size of a ear of corn. 

Weight Gain:  14lbs so far
Gender: BABY GIRL!!!!!

Movement: Very strong kicks this week, stronger than I ever felt with my first pregnancy. They don't hurt, but I can finally feel them from the outside. Hopefully B will feel one soon. I laugh every time she really jabs me. Love it. 
Sleep: Getting lots of sleep. Totally used to the many bathroom breaks at night by now. 
What I miss: I'm getting used to my limitations and abiding by Dr's orders.
Cravings: Nothing too noticeable this week. 

Symptoms: My feet/heels are sporadically in pain, but nothing unmanageable. I'm starting to feel like I waddle a little when I walk. 
Best moment of the week: The lack of stress and anxiety this week was really noticeable. We purchased a car seat and also got the paint for the nursery (it was free thanks to coupons from Ace hardware!). And a pedicure with my husband was very romantic and relaxing. 
Worst moment of the week: It was 108 degrees this weekend. I don't do that kind of heat unless I'm in vegas or palm springs!
Hoping all continues to go well with my appointment this week!
