Thursday, 3/17/2011
(24 weeks)
Here is me and Lil D this week:

Maternity Clothes: I have officially started wearing maternity pants. I had purchased 2 bella bands, which were getting a little uncomfortable holding up ok , but now that I know how comfortable maternity pants are, I think I would have skipped the Bella Bands all together and went straight to maternity pants.

Sleep: Everyday and week is different depending on what I have going on. This week has been hard with daylight savings time and I have been busy with different things. I have been waking up in the middle of the night a few nights the past couple of weeks for 1-2 hours at a time. Those days are worse and it ends up catching up with me eventually.

Best Moment of the Week: Figuring out that maternity pants are HEAVEN!

Movement: I have been feeling her move A LOT. More and more every day and week. I have noticed that she is a lot more active after I eat.

Food Craving: I have definitely gotten some of my appetite back. I am open to more foods and they actually sound appealing. I still like my popsicles/icees though.

Food Aversions: Green Grandma made corn beef and cabbage in the crock-pot last week and the smell made me really nauseous, but other than that I have been really good.

Morning Sickness: None.

Gender: It's a girl! Read that post HERE.

Symptoms: Flatulence and constipation are the major two that continue to stick with me.

What I miss: Bending over and putting on shoes without a hassle. I know it's only going to get worse.

What I'm looking forward to: Finishing up our registry, setting baby shower dates and finding a place of our own just to name a few.

Baby's now the size of a papaya!
