24 Week Update

How far along? 24 Weeks --She's reached her first viability milestone!

How big is baby? About 13 in. long and the size of an eggplant that weighs about 1.5 lbs.

Sleep: I have good nights and bad nights but I finally found a comfortable way to use my maternity pillow.

Weird Dreams: The other night I had a dream that I had the baby, in the hospital, but by myself and didn't tell the nurses until the next day. I just put her in a bassinet and went to bed. The next morning when they found her I tried to pick her up but she was very slippery and I dropped her on the floor. The nurse casually picked her up by the back of her neck like you would a kitten. Tim was at a comedy show at the mall so I didn't bother him with the news and my parents said they might stop by after lunch. 

Best moment this week: Making our first steps towards preparing the nursery. This lady is ready to nest! Also, having Tim home to feel his crazy daughter dance around.

Miss anything? Being able to walk around without getting winded...shoot, I miss being able to sit without losing my breath!

Movement: She's very active in the morning and before bed. I'm just now starting to feel her while I'm standing up and last week she did a somersault! 

Food Cravings: Haven't had many cravings lately. I have a hard time deciding what to eat because nothing really sounds appealing.

Food Aversions: I can't believe it but baby doesn't like pumpkin!! I was so excited to bake a Halloween treat and made these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Whoopie Pies and one bite had me sick all night. I couldn't even think of it without my stomach flipping.

Symptoms: I'll spare you some of the TMI symptoms but mostly just feeling uncomfortable. Some shooting pains, feeling like there is a block on my chest and not being able to take a deep breath. 

Belly Button in or out? Still in but looking pretty shallow
Looking forward to? Getting my gestational diabetes screen over with! I'm lucky enough to get the 3 hour test right off the bat. Praying my little veins can handle it and that the drink isn't as horrid as everyone says it is.
