24 Weeks

How far along: 24 Weeks! I can't believe I am 6 months pregnant!
How big is the baby: Baby boy is the length of an eggplant-11.8 inches.
Weight gain: 17 pounds according to me. 16 pounds according to the doctor. Let's go with that!
Doctor/Medical/Body Stuff: Had my 24 week appointment today. All is well! I am measuring right where I am supposed to be. I just really like our doctor so much. She is so down to earth, answers all our questions, and takes the time to talk. Follow up 28 week ultrasound scheduled in a month to check on my naughty placenta (placenta previa).  Unrelated to doctor stuff: Some days I don't think it is possible for my chest to be any more sore. OY! Also, I burp like an old man. It is really pleasant to be around me.
Sleep: Depends on the night. But I sure do get a lot of Pinterest-ing done in the middle of the night some nights!
Movement: I am feeling him more consistently throughout the day. AND last night while laying in bed we saw him punching and kicking from the outside! It was SO fun! At the doc appointment I couldn't stop giggling because Little Men kept kicking the Doppler probe while she was trying to get a good listen. 
Food/Aversions: Nothing too crazy this week. 
What I miss: My back not hurting. 
What I am looking forward to: Picking out paint and getting the walls painted in the nursery!
Baby Projects: We hit up IKEA and Garden Ridge to start shopping for some nursery decor. That was super fun! We have also spent quite a bit of time looking at cribs online. Haven't made a decision on that yet. We did order a glider/recliner for the nursery that should arrive on Friday. I hope we love it! Our stairs are really narrow...only 31 it limits our choices. Target has had some great baby items on clearance this week. I'm so glad someone in my Facebook group noticed! I got a Mei Tai wrap for $17 (normally $35) and a squeeze pouch making kit for $7.50 (normally $25)!
Pearls from the Preschool: Friday I wore a zip hoodie (therefore my belly wasn't as obvious). When I took my coat off, one of my students screeched, "DID YOU BRING YOUR BABY TODAY!?!?!" I think she was worried I left my belly at home? Not sure. But it was cute!
Oh! And This: I was so sure that a car seat would be near impossible to get in the back of Adam's Mustang, but when our niece Emma was visiting this week we tried and it was really no big deal. You just couldn't have someone sit in the passenger seat with the baby in the back, but really we never take his car anywhere when it is the two of us anyway. We always take my car. So I guess Adam gets to keep his Mustang for a while!
