24 Weeks

How far along: We are at 24 weeks today.

Total weight gain: +2 lbs from my pre pregnancy weight. +5 lbs from last months appointment. Agh. I mean I have a belly so I guess it's about time for the scale to shoot up.  I don't know if I can handle that.

Maternity clothes: Yes, pretty much everything is maternity these days except for my summer dresses and a few looser tops that I have.

Stretch marks:None I think. I guess I need to start getting some belly lotion or whatever to help prevent....even though I'm pretty positive it's just a marketing scam. :)

Sleep:  Typically I am sleeping pretty well. I get up once during the night and sometimes (maybe once or twice a week) I can't fall back asleep for 2-3 hours afterwards. I also have this crazy cat named Fendi Foo who goes on howling sprees to try and prepare us for a baby. Yup.

Best moment of this week:  I finally decided on nursery colors (navy, coral and gray). Plus the baby moves all the time and I LOVE IT.

Food cravings: I am really loving some Ben & Jerry's ice cream, but will be cutting that out! Sweets are sounding better and better even though I was never a big sweets person. Of course cheese fries and chips sound good too. I definitely do not give in to all of that although I wish I could!!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: My allergies have been bothering my eyes so badly. All of the allergy eye drops are class C which means I'm not risking it.

Have you started to show yet:  I sure have. I feel like my belly has blown up this month. It scares me that I will only be getting bigger and bigger since I still have roughly 16 weeks to go.

Gender: Baby Britney. Although we won't be sharing her name until delivery. Not that we even have a name now. I may just name her after Miss Friski.

Labor signs: No.

Belly button in or out: In.

Wedding rings on or off: On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and stressed. I feel like October is so far away and yet it doesn't seem there is enough time to get everything done. We ordered her furniture this weekend and it should be here this week. Colors are picked out. There are so many things (expensive things at that) that she will need like a car seat and all. Overwhelmed might be the best way to describe me. Not to mention finding a daycare, pediatrician, etc.

Looking forward to: My roommate moving out (are you reading this DJ?!) Doesn't that sound harsh? One of my friends has been with us for a couple of weeks until her place is ready. I love having her stay with us because we catch up on PLL, Real Housewives, we cook, clean, etc., but when she moves out that means that we will have access to her pool and I am looking forward to swimming as the next two months will be getting HOTTER! That seriously is the only reason I am letting her go. :)


  1. I'm sooooo jealous of your weight gain!!! I've gained freaking 23 pounds already :(

  2. You can afford to gain 25 lbs. I promise, I look like I have gained 25 lbs! I wish I looked like I had only gained 2 lbs. I do not have a cute bump!
