24 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 24 Weeks already!! I can't believe we only have about 3 1/2 more months until we get to meet our little Jackson. I can't wait!!

Size of Baby: The baby is around a foot long, from head to heel. About the length of an ear of corn. He weighs just over a pound.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm not entirely sure, I should find out on Friday at my 24 week appt. I'm kind of scared cause i think it might be a lot. :-(

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity pants and mostly maternity shirts.

Gender: Its a BOY!! Jackson Thomas Smith

Movement: Yes, he's moving around A LOT now, and I love it.

Food Cravings: Still no real food cravings. Just anything that sounds good. I do seem to be hungrier more often these days, which is not helping my ever expanding waist and hips. Guess that comes with the territory though.

What I miss: Nothing really at this point.

Sleep: Having to get up at least once a night to use the restroom and just can't seem to get comfortable sometimes, but otherwise sleeping fine. I don't seem to have a problem going to sleep cause I'm usually very tired by the end of the day.

Symptoms: A sore muscle in my upper back. Other than that I don't seem to have any other symptoms.

Best Moment this week: Going to dinner and shopping with my hubby this past Monday night. He HATES to go shopping with me, but his cousin's wedding is this Saturday and I needed a new dress. So he offered to come along!! I was shocked, but happy. He was sweet and sat there as I tried on 6 or 7 dresses and gave his opinion on each one. :-)

What I am looking forward to: The long 4th of July weekend, and our little overnight trip to Hannibal, MO with Jake's family on Sunday/Monday.
