Baby Mk… 24ish weeks

How far along? 24 weeks and 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: Yes, I am looking and I know, but I am not sharing anymore 😉
Maternity clothes? All maternity clothes.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Sleeping well, but getting hotter at night.
Best moment this week: About a week ago Josh felt the baby from the outside… so exciting!
Fitness Level: Still about 4-5 times a week.  I can still run an under 9 minute pace for a couple of miles which makes me proud, and am still teaching group exercise.  I know my energy level will decrease
Miss Anything? This has nothing to do with the pregnancy, but being home every day with Claire… but only 7 more working days and I will have this again- I can’t wait!
Movement: oh yes, especially right after I eat.  Now
Food cravings: Just ice cream… I can blame this on pregnancy, right?  I am pretty sure I just have it in my mind that since it is hot and I am pregnant I crave ice cream.  I keep telling myself that this may be the last time I get to blame things on being pregnant so I am embracing it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Have you started to show yet: YES!  Much bigger than I was with Claire at this point.
Gender prediction: 4 weeks ago I was sure it was a boy, but now I am back to having no clue at all. We will see in 16 weeks (give or take a few days)
Labor Signs: None and it can stay that way
Belly Button in or out? it is out
Wedding rings on or off? Off 😦  I had to take them off yesterday.  Hey, I made it ten weeks longer than I did with Claire. YAY!!!
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Mostly happy with a few bursts of tears here and there
Looking forward to: Summer and spending the last 16 weeks with Claire as an only child.  Getting the playroom ready for when this baby comes.

Baby MK… 20 weeks

How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Yes, I am looking and I know, but I am not sharing anymore 😉
Maternity clothes? I can still wear my regular dress pants, but that is all.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: I love sleep, but this is nothing new from pre-pregnancy.
Best moment this week: Hearing and seeing that we have a healthy baby growing right on track- so much relief.  I sometimes get so fearful and constantly pray for a healthy baby.  I also know that the point of the ultrasound is not actually to find out the gender, but confirm so many health aspects.  Praise the Lord we have a healthy baby!!!
Fitness Level: I’ve taken my workouts down to about 4-5 times a week.  This full time work crap is kicking my butt.
Miss Anything? Nothing at all..
Movement: I feel lots of movement first thing in the morning and before going to bed.  Nothing from the outside yet though.
Food cravings: I had a red meat craving the other day, but that was the only thing.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No.
Have you started to show yet: YES!  Much bigger than I was with Claire at this point.
Gender prediction: Boy… i will be shocked if this baby comes out a girl.  Either way, I will be happy!
Labor Signs: No, and we better not have any for a long while.
Belly Button in or out? it is out
Wedding rings on or off? Still on… I will count this as a success!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and the emotions are coming on more.  I balled in my office yesterday because I couldn’t see my dear friend who just moved to California.
Looking forward to: A warm weekend at home and a long(ish) run on Saturday. 

I forgot to take a 20 week picture until I was 21 weeks, so here it is…
