24 Weeks!

How far along:  24 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: ugh, don’t want to get on the scale just yet.  I’ll update you on the next post. 🙂

Exercise: Cardio, weights, kettle bell exercises

Maternity clothes:  Motherhood and Gap maternity.  Leggings and tank tops are the most comfortable for me.

Sleep:  I am now sleeping with the body pillow!  It does piss me off sometimes, because when I want to turn, I have to move the entire pillow to the other side, which is difficult doing under the covers.

Best moment this week:  We finally booked our wedding location in COSTA RICA!!  YAY!!

Tim’s best moment this week: “Besides working a lot, enjoying pool time and drinks while away from home.”

Miss Anything:  I miss Tim!  He left for work on June 15 and won’t be back until July 3rd.  Our condo is toooo quiet without him. 😦

Movement: Liam has earned his black belt in Karate.  Two days ago I ate BBQ sauce for the first time during the pregnancy and he went kung fu on me.  Apparently he get’s way too excited with Cattlemen’s BBQ sauce.

Food cravings: Watermelon, sandwiches, banana strawberry smoothies, and arugula chicken salads with pine nuts and cranberries.

Anything making you queasy or sick: anything made in a crockpot.  It stinks up the entire place!

Have you started to show yet: I can barely see my feet! :/  By the time I am done drowning  myself in coconut oil, I look like a greased pig.  Oink oink baby…welcome to pregnancy world.

Belly Button in or out? In

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Ughh mostly moody!  People drive me crazy when they are too slow.  I just want to stay home, relax and not deal with anyone.

Looking forward to:  Definitely the baby shower, and also my friends and family flying in from Texas in mid July.

Difficulties: Holding my pee in is STILL NOT easy!!  Back pain is the same…unfortunately.  And going to the gym now is a bit difficult, especially after stuffing myself in workout clothes and passing all those athletic bodies.  The other day I saw myself in the mirror while working out, and  damn!  I look like a stuffed turkey….No joke.  My stomach stretched double time these past few weeks.  Just like dough for an extra large pizza!  Arggggg!

Fact: Liam is almost a foot long!  Has a full set of eyelashes and eyebrows and a good sprinkling of hair on his head.  No hair color yet..just white for now.

How far along:  22 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: 9 lbs the past five weeks/ Total: 17 lbs

Exercise: Cardio, weights, biking, swimming, yoga, and kettle bell exercises

Maternity clothes:  Absolutely! Leggings and dresses from Gap

Sleep:  I try to sleep on my left side, but I continue to toss and turn throughout the night.  Liam kicks me if I am on my back.

Best moment this week:  I finally felt Liam kick! 🙂 and Besides my visit back home to see the family, I am so happy to be in our new condo! More space and a nursery for Liam.

Tim’s best moment this week:  “Confirming the fact that I have a healthy wife and son.”

Have you told family and friends:  At this point, YES!

Miss Anything:  My existing wardrobe!  I’m very limited at this point.  I also miss wine and I desperately crave margaritas.  Never have before, but for some reason these are on my mind.

Movement:  I felt the first flutter on my flight to Texas! It was quick, but I was really happy to know Liam was moving in my belly!!  He now kicks every so often.  (check out some of the movement on our 2nd ultrasound)

Food cravings: Fruit Juice, chocolate, peanut butter jelly sandwiches, and watermelon

Anything making you queasy or sick: Roast beef

Have you started to show yet: definitely

Belly Button in or out? still in

Happy or Moody most of the time:  A combination of both.  Moody- I can’t stand traffic on my way to work in the morning and afternoon.  Music that is played over and over on the radio drives me crazy.  When I am home on the couch…I am REALLY happy. 🙂

Looking forward to:  The baby shower in July!  Also, booking our wedding location next week!

Difficulties: I have HORRIBLE back pain, especially on my left side.  Holding my pee in when I sneeze is NOT easy!!!

Fact: Liam is a whopping weight of 1 pound and the size of a papaya!  Eyebrows and eyelids are well developed.  He can now hear the sound of my voice, my heart beating, and whoosh-whoosh of my blood circulating through my body.
