23-24 Week Bumpdate

Since we were away last week I just happened to skip the update. There really isn't any significant changes from week 23 to 24.

23 Weeks
What I'm Wearing:
Cover Up- Old Navy

24 weeks
What I'm wearing
Jeans: Old Navy,
(They are awful. They are so long and I'm 5'7. They need to be worn with heels and come on I'm pregnant I'm not running around after kids all day in heels.)
White Tank: Motherhood
Pink Cardigan- Old Navy, non maternity

How Far Along: 24 weeks and 5 days!

Baby is the size of: As long as an ear of corn and as big as a cantaloupe. YIKES!!!! 

Total Weight Gain: I've hit 18 pounds. Only gained 2 pounds last month so I'm pretty pleased. I haven't cut down on the eating just moving a lot more.

Sleep: While on vacation it was pretty difficult. It shouldn't have been. The mega California King bed we slept in should have been excellent for sleep but when I'm not in my own crumby, queen size bed under my comforters I just can't sleep.  

Best Moment of the week:

* Lots of movement and it happens all the time!

* Spending time with my husband on our little babymoon. It was so nice to reconnect. Our daily lives can such the life right out of us and we barely have any quality time with one another.

* Being away from work. Sitting on the beach does so much for the mind and the body. I can't believe how at peace I was.
* Guest invites continue to roll in for our shower. Just a few weekends left. I can't wait.

Worst Moment of the Week:
* The 10 hour car rides turned into much longer. On the way down to NC we were stuck in DC as the shooting happened. It was extremely scary to know you could be in danger. The car ride home was so long and my body rebelled. I am so swollen and sore. I can't fit my feet into any shoes. Even my Chuck Taylors are begging for mercy! I had to wear them to work yesterday and I looked like an old knocked up lady trying to look 18. Not a good look

Miss Anything:
* Being able to wear whatever I want and feel good about it.
* Being able to have a beer while on the beach.
* Feeling sexy and pretty

Food Cravings: While we were on vacation I really didn't deprive myself of anything. I think that could be why I'm feeling so LARGE this week.

Anything make you queasy: Nope
Have you started to show? Oh boy I have. I really feel like I popped.

Gender: Neutral all the way. Everyone is guessing boy. They are all saying my face hasn't changed and I'm carrying low and small. I have a feeling it's a girl!

Symptoms: Some tightness in my hips and I think my feet have grown and they have definately gotten flatter.

Workouts: I've been doing some walking and a lot of moving and swimming.

Mood: I am feeling great thanks to a wonderful vacation! I feel relaxed and tan. I LOVE it.

Looking forward to: My best friend's wedding.

Maternity Clothes: A good mix of maternity and non maternity items.

Stretchmarks: Nothing yet. I've been using Mama Bee by Burt's Bees religiously.

Rings on or off? Both are still on but they are getting a bit tight.

Bellybutton in or out? Still in.

This week I:
* Enjoyed myself. Vacation was wonderful! I can't believe it's the last time my husband and I will be away before we have a new little one in our lives.

* Ate everything that looked good. I'm feeling it but those dinners out and deserts were worth it.

Baby Update:

* Tastebuds are developing. (Must have loved that glazed, cream cheese crousant last week.)

* Skin is becoming more opaque and even turning pink. 

Momma Update:

* Mommy feels tired and swollen. 

* Mommy  is having a difficult time bending over. Painting my toes is becoming quite the chore. 

* Mommy is feeling HUGE. 

* My nails and hair are still looking good.
