23 & 24 Weeks


How far along?  
23 & 24 weeks


Total weight gain/loss? 
 I weighed 158 at my last OB visit so about 18 pounds.

Maternity clothes?
Maternity and regular clothes. Mostly my pants and jeans are maternity. I have several skirts that work well with my growing belly.

Stretch marks? 
No new ones yet. Continuing to lotion like crazy. 

Sleep? 
Sleep has become more of a challenge the past 2 weeks. I've had to add another pillow either to my back or to elevate myself more. It seems we keep passing some type of cold between us and I've been sick, again, these past few days. No fun.

Best moment these weeks? 

Feeling her move about. I can ask Sawyer where his little sister is and he will pat my belly.

Miss anything? 
Going to sleep and turning over in bed with ease. It's become harder to rely on my core strength with this growing belly so I have to push myself to maneuver about more than ever.

Movement? 
Oh def!!

Food cravings?
No but I am loving Sonic's Breakfast Burritos these days.

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
Nuh-huh

Gender?
Girl!

Symptoms?
Growing boobs and belly.

Labor Signs? 
Nope

Belly Button in or out?
half in and half out if that is even possible

Wedding rings on or off? 
still on

 Happy or Moody most of the time?
Happy Momma.

Looking forward to?
Getting started on the new closet in our bedroom.

I'm trying to stay as current as possible on my bump posts but I swear I forget to take progress pics until I'm in my pj's or sweats. Anywho, things have been rolling along pretty well the past few weeks. We still have so much to do but will eventually get there. My sleeping has been better and have only added one additional pillow so far. I keep forgetting to break out the snoogle.

We've also started potty training with Sawyer. Having this belly has made it quite a task. Bending down and standing up constantly has been a challenge but at least I'm getting some exercise in. He has done really well but it's not exactly what I expected. Valentine's Day was pretty low key for us. I was sick, again, and Brett suffered an awful nose bleed that morning. We gave Sawyer a couple new trucks which he obsessed over. He loves to sit in the kitchen floor with us and roll them back and forth. He will point to the exact spot in the floor where he wants you to sit. The Hubs gave me a sweet card and box of Godiva Chocolates. He received a card from me with a basket of last minute goodies. Since I was so focused on prepping for potty training I forgot about Valentine's Day approaching, oops. We still had a lovely day together as a family.

What did you guys do for Valentine's? Do you have a special way you like to celebrate the day?
Hope y'all have a great one.
