How far along? Twenty-four weeks and a few days.
Are you showing? Absolutely.
Gender: Baby BOY #2! 🙂
Total weight gain: 7 lbs
Maternity clothes: Oh yes. I live in my maternity leggings. Invest in some, you wont regret it.
Stretch marks: Just the pre-existing ones. Thanks, Aiden.
Sleeping: Rough. I’m always tired but never sleep well. He’s soooo low. And I’ve had a lot of pelvic pain and sciatic pain the last few weeks. Ouch.
Food Cravings: I’m just hungry. But nothing ever sounds good.
Anything making you sick or queasy? Meat. Asher is clearly a vegetarian.
Miss Anything? Sleep and wine. And sushi. And wine.
Movement: Strong kicks now! Loving watching my belly move!
Labor signs: Nope! But a ton of pressure sometimes and Braxton Hicks have arrived at the party.
Symptoms: Irritable and tired. Overall uncomfortable because nothing seems to fit right! Asher loves to sit on my sciatic nerve now. FYI. IT HURTS.
Belly Button in or out: OUT.
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody: All of the above.
Best moments this week: Watching my belly move! Seeing Asher on the ultrasound!
Looking forward to: MOVING! And finally being able to feel even the slightest bit prepared for this baby. Can’t wait.
We finally met with our new doctor last week. Everything seems to be lining up perfectly for my VBAC. Asher is head down now too, thank the Lord. Breech babies are uncomfortable at any stage! He’s still really low though, so I still have a lot of pressure. To the point where it feels like he’s going to just fall out sometimes. (I wish it were that easy!)
Here’s a bump shot for you:
