Bumpdate: 24 weeks

24 weeks Wednesday, May 8th. I'm a little behind!

I feel enormous! I'm scared for 34 weeks!

How big is baby? The size of a cantaloupe. Oh my gosh, that's big!

Maternity ClothesAll pants. I have been wearing shirts but most regular dress shirts fit. My t-shirts are getting a bit tighter (see above).

Stretch Marks: Tiny one on the back of the top of my hip, but it could have been there before! Nothing else new.

Sleep: Comes and goes. I slept really well a few nights this week then there were other nights that were horrible. I actually slept on the couch for a few hours last night and it was so much more comfortable! 

Best moment of the week? My sister coming home (although that could come back and haunt me later...haha!)

Movement: Feeling more and more. J still hasn't felt it. He will try then she will stop. She's also been kicking my bladder like crazy! It's not cool when I am teaching and have to use the restroom fast.

Food cravings: Nothing really. Although I'm acquiring a sweet tooth which has never been me. I usually am not a big sweets fan. Now I could eat ice cream every day!

Food aversions: Not much. But nothing ever really sounds good.

Belly button in or out? In!

What I miss: Not having hip pain and sleeping well. But still thankful overall so I hate to complain!

What I'm looking forward to: My school shower is this week!

Milestones:  We're at 24 weeks and my dad is healthy and good to go *knockonwood*. My grandma's dad passed away when my grandma was 24 weeks with my mom. My mom's dad (my grandpa) passed away when she was 24 weeks with me. My dad is going to break the streak. He's not allowed to do anything dangerous either. So keep him in your prayers! {I wish I was making that up, but I couldn't if I tried}
