Little Bit Bit: Week 24

2 May

I’ve said it before and I’ll surely say it again, but where in the heck is the pause button?! You know those hourglass things with the sand? You know how when you watch them, it feels like it’s taking forever for the last grain to fall? Well, this time I feel like I’m trying to slow it down. Like I’m trying to cover the open end but the sand keeps slipping through my fingers. We have so many things left to do, and I feel like we have no time! This is me officially freaking out.

In other news, Bit Bit has started having hiccups! I’m really enjoying being able to feel all her movements and see my stomach move along with her.

 

How far along? 24 Weeks
Total weight gain: 7 pounds. Finally making some progress here!
Maternity clothes? pants, yes. Still wearing regular tops and dresses
Stretch marks? Not yet
Sleep: sleeping great
Best moment this week:  Finally starting on clearing out our storage room. Which means we’re one step closer to starting on the nursery!
Miss Anything? Oddly, I see people out running all the time right now, and I think to myself, ‘Wish I could do that right now.” WHAT IN THE WORLD IS WRONG WITH ME!?!? It’s the classic “you can’t do it/can’t have it, so now all of a sudden you want it.”
Movement: more & more each day, with the addition of HICCUPS!
Food cravings: still sweets. I’ve got to figure out a good compromise so I don’t gain 60 pounds. This week the craving is cotton candy. <—Yeah, that’ll get me in trouble, real fast.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I threw up in the bathroom of a restaurant last night. Now I have the awesome pleasure of being able to say that I did that with both my pregnancies. Yippee.
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I’ve been dealing with round ligament pain since about 10 weeks. No joke when I say that I feel like I’m blowing out an ovary whenever I sneeze or move too quickly. That biz hurts!
Belly Button in or out? In, but it’s getting more shallow every day. It never popped out with Lakyn, but maybe it will with Bit Bit?
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY, but I can cry and get all emotional at the drop of a hat.
Looking forward to: making more progress. I’m most concerned about the crib. I don’t want to have a newborn and still be waiting on the crib to get here. Think I can talk to the Husband into getting it before we have room for it in the nursery?

    You look great! And it does seem like it’s going by fast, but I’m not the one pregnant haha. My pregnancy seemed to last an eternity!

    You are beautiful! I am with you, time seems to be flying by too quickly…with your little bit and with life in general. If you find that pause button, pass it on. :) Sounds like things are going well…minus the throwing up in the restaurant, that’s never too much fun. Hope the crib gets there!

    So I laughed SO much at the round ligament pain because I have been going through the same thing and the way you worded it made me laugh and laugh…that biz DOES hurt. LOL!!! And don’t worry you will get everything done in time! And yes for sure order the crib soon I actually do have a horror story about that. You are so beautiful and I am slightly jealous of how tiny you still are… :)
