24 Weeks!


Size of Baby: Thanks to our doctor's appointment this morning, I know that our little man is weighing in at 1.5 lbs and is twelve inches long!
Symptoms: - This week has been a little rough with lots of rib pains, uterus growing pains and fibroid pains.  I'm pretty much toast after I get home and spend all evening on the couch.
 Cravings/Aversions: - No major cravings this week. I'm getting to the point where I'm really having to limit how much I'm eating because my stomach fills up so quickly!

Maternity Clothes: - Still wearing both normal and maternity clothes. I told Cody today that it's amazing what I'll wear out now.. my new motto when it comes to getting dressed is, "Eh, this fits. It will work!"  :)
 Sleep: - Sleeping pretty good this week... wanting some more though!
 Highlights Of This Week:
 - Cody got our crib set up this past week! It's so fun to walk into the nursery and see all of the pieces starting to come together.  My mom and I also picked up the fabric for the bedding and she and Bami are going to start making it soon. I can't wait to show it off!
- Celebrating my first mother's day. {post to come!} Cody did a great job at making me feel very special and I can't wait to use the prenatal massage he got me.
- Today at my check up, the doctor looked at my chart and then said "Oh good! We've made it to 24 weeks. We're viable now if he comes. Our next goal is 28, then 32 and finally 38. See ya next time!" Now, I'm certainly not hoping that Griffin comes any time soon, but it was just crazy to hear the dr. talk in terms of Griff coming and making it sound rather soon!
Looking forward to: - The weekend, some down time and working on nursery projects. Maybe we should also start thinking about narrowing down some middle name choices too... :)
