Week 24 Bumpdate

What a GORGEOUS weekend we just had! Now that we are getting closer and closer to the third trimester, everything is starting to feel more and more real. I finally sat down and focused on creating our baby registry. It was such an overwhelming task and I kept putting it off, but now that it's done, it feels so good!

How far along?: 24 weeks, 3 days
Baby is the size of a: Cantaloupe
Total weight gain/loss: 20lbs
The Bump: Steadily getting bigger
Symptoms: I know I've said it before, but getting winded is so annoying! Going up a few flight of stairs makes me feel so out of shape!
Food Cravings: Still nothing in particular. I like sweet things after I eat a meal, but let's face it, I've always been like that.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope!
Sleep: I feel like I toss and turn a lot more than usual, but really I think it's just because I wake up every time I move at night.
What I miss: Energy! I have none. I get tired out by the littlest of tasks
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlotte Noel
Gender Prediction: Still a girl!
Movement: Nothing really changing on the movement front. Still feels like little flutters and rolls.
Maternity Clothes: All I wear is maternity clothes. Unless I'm just arounde the house, then it's my husbands clothes. I have suddenly outgrown all of my tshirts!
Labor Signs: None.
Best Moment of the Week: Getting some help with the nursery! My in-laws came up this weekend to help with house projects and we cleaned out Charlottes closet! It feels so good not to have an avalanche of junk tumbling out at you when you open the closet doors.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Still waiting for that moment my husband can really feel her kicking. I know it will be soon.
