24 Weeks

How far along?  24 weeks
Total weight gain/loss? According to my scale I'm up about 10lbs, which means I gained around 6lbs this month!  Yikes.  Time to reign it in.   
Maternity clothes? Yes 
Stretch marks? Nope, but I check compulsively.  
Sleep? I generally hate when pregnant women complain about sleep because, just wait until the baby comes and you're so tired you don't know wether to wind your ass or scratch your watch, but I haven't been sleeping that well.  Oh well, at least I can turn over and try to get comfy without having to change a shitty diaper or pop out a boob.  
Best moment last week? Date night!  We went out to a dinner where there were no crayons and to a movie that wasn't animated.  It was glorious.  
Movement? Yes, apparently the middle of the night is a great time to practice high kicks in utero.  Who knew?
Food cravings? Cookies, but I'm pulling back so I don't gain like a mother the next 16 weeks.    
Food aversions?  chicken, onions, and tomatoes.  
Gender? Team Green
Labor signs? I've actually noticed a cutback in the BH's thankfully.  
Belly button in/out? In, but it's only a matter of time before it pops out.  Last time I used to cover it with a band aid because it skeeved me out so badly.  
What I miss: Beer.  Andy was drinking Lagunitas Little Sumpin and it's one of my favorite micro brews and I was so mad I couldn't have one, or 7.  
What I am looking forward to: Getting to hear a good strong heart beat at my next appointment on Thursday. 
Milestones: Happy Viability to Mrs. Petrillo.  We're looking to cook for several more months, but it's nice to know that there's a chance at viability God forbid anything should happen.  

Here be my 24 week bump!


I swear to God I wear more than just pajama pants, but I only just remembered to take this pic right before bed.  My face is starting to look puffy too...bleh.

I love date nights with my husband. That is the night we usually send the kids off to my parents' house for an overnight. I have friends who think I'm crazy for sending the kiddos off at such a young age, but I think date night is so important.
