I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him.
1 SAMUEL 1:27
These last ten weeks have flown by! Even though I know I have gotten a lot bigger, it is crazy to look back and see how things have changed in this neck of the woods.
With 16 more weeks to go before the 40-week mark, things could get really scary…and not just in the way I look. Don’t worry I will be documenting every ugly minute of it. Here is what things are looking like today:
How Far Along: 24 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 20 pounds
Food Cravings: Dang you Jason’s Deli Salad Bar! Why do you have to be so convenient and yummy? I especially love their Mini Bran Muffins and free frozen yogurt. The fact that I have eaten there three time this week shows just how out of control my cravings are.
What I Miss: Being able to drink beer while I watch football. It just really adds to the experience. I actually miss going to the games more, but that is kind of a locational problem.
Symptoms: I have been so achy this week. There is no doubt that my ligaments are growing and stretching to accommodate this big boy.
Baby Movement: The movements are noticeable a few times each day. I know the placenta placement is making it more difficult to feel all the activity going on in there, but, hopefully, as he grows I will start feeling him more regularly.
Maternity Attire: My mission is to place an order with Gap/Old Navy Maternity this week. My must buys are skinny jeans (I guess they are only skinny on bottom) and tunics. With the falling temps, it is crucial that I invest in some new pants.
Hurl Factor: There was a hidden egg yolk in my potato salad tonight, and it almost made my whole dinner come up. Yuck! Just thinking about the taste and texture makes my stomach roll.
Annoyances: My little clinger Doug, the dog, has to be on my lap at all times. First of all, there is no room for him to climb aboard. Secondly, I am a human oven right now, and I can barely stand my own body heat, let alone a small dogs.
Weekly Highlight: Trying to figure out what to register for. As clueless as I am, it is always fun to pretend shop for the little man.
