How far along? 24 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I finally got on the scale!!! It is the most it has ever been and I have gained a total of 14 pounds!
Maternity clothes? Pants and one shirt. Still wearing “baggier shirts” and dresses that stretch
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: I have had insomnia! I wake up at about 2:00 am and can’t get back to sleep until around 4:00 am. I guess I am getting prepared
Best moment this week: The constant moving you are doing and Daddy getting to feel you often. Also, Dadd cooked me a wonderful Mother’s Day breakfast and built a raised vegetable garden. He is so thoughtful!
Fitness Level: Same as last week. Running a few times a week, teachign class on Sunday and Yoga once a week. About 4-5 workouts a week. This Saturday I am also running a 5k.
Miss Anything? All the things I have missed recently (wine and running long distances) has subsided as I am getting more excited to be a Mommy.
Movement: Oh yes and I love it!
Food cravings: I have come to the conclusion that cravings must not be what I thougth they were. I don’t ever have this sudden urge that I have to have something or the world is going to end. Instead, it is that I want to eat a certain food over and over. Lately, I have been wanting and eating a TON of grapes.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Have you started to show yet: Yes!!! I guess I have really popped over the last week! On Monday I had a previous student come up to me and tap me and say, “Mrs. N are you putting on some pound? Did you quit running?” I then proceeded to let him know it was a baby. He said he wondered, but thought it would be rude to ask. Apparently, he didn’t learn that it is even more rude to ask a woman if she has put on pounds. Then yesterday, I saw another former student in the office and she said, “Mrs. N, not to be rude or anything, but are you pregnant?” I am glad she knows how to ask appropriately. Many current students tell me everyday that my baby must be getting bigger.
Gender prediction: Sticking with the boy… that is what the Chinese Calendar says too 🙂
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? Out
Wedding rings on or off? Off…. I sure do miss wearing it.
Happy or Moody most of the time: So happy.
Looking forward to: Just 9 school days left. Once school is out I can really get working on your nursery 🙂
