That leaves me with my Week 24 Pregnancy Highlights. I definitely have the "waddle" going on. I never fully understood why some pregnant women waddled, but I do now! There are so many things that I could do before that I took for granted, like bending over to put socks on, getting into my car, shaving my legs, etc. It's getting harder to do these things! I really think my belly gets bigger everyday, and it seems to be growing outward only. And it itches something fierce right around my belly button! Lotion has become my best friend.
Total Weight Gain: 30 lbs
Sleep: Some nights are good, others not so much. Acid reflux has been waking me up in the middle of the night. Turning over has also become one of those pre-pregnancy things I took for granted. Now it's a production.
Best Moment this Week: The best moments are when the babies are moving around. I love it! It brings me so much happiness.
Movement: Yes! They are becoming more active--they love to move around when I am sitting on the couch at night. I love to just watch my belly move!
Food Craving: Milk, chocolate, strawberries, raspberries.
What I Miss: Taking a HOT bath, painting my toes.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Getting our nursery done. Mike is painting the trim and hopefully the ceiling this weekend, then we have to paint the walls, get new baseboards and carpet, order the furniture and then we are done!
Weekly Wisdom: Don't compare how big or little you are compared to other pregnant women. Your pregnancy is just that: YOURS.
Symptoms: Big belly, widening feet, stuffy nose, hard to get comfortable. HAPPY!!!!
