24 weeks today! It’s really hard to imagine a cantaloupe inside me right now, especially because I can’t say for sure that I’ve ever like, held a cantaloupe? But I can definitely picture a package of Oreos, and that honestly I don’t feel like there’s enough room in me right now for a whole package. I mean. I know there’s a lot of me, but it doesn’t seem like THAT much yet?
This past weekend, Chris and I went to Raleigh NC for a couple of days which was nice. Every picture of me from the entire trip looks like an accidental maternity shoot, but I can definitely think of worse things than a maternity shoot with dinosaurs and stuff. The trip was really fun though, it’s always nice to get away, even if it’s just three hours away, and one night.
Also! We got a crib! A friend from high school alerted me to this one for sale on facebook, because as you may notice, it matches the shape of our dresser almost perfectly! Since it was in Philadelphia, my dad went and picked it up for me and I love it. We paid about a third of the retail cost and my dad says it’s in perfect condition. I just couldn’t believe how perfect the match is. We may end up painting it yellow to match the dresser, but haven’t decided for sure yet. We won’t have it here until October, when daddy visits again, so we have time to decide for sure.
Bump size: 39″! DAMN.
Movement: I’ve actually started feeling movement regularly! It still doesn’t feel like kicking or anything really strong, but it’s something. The only way I can think to describe it is it feels like bubbles popping in my belly, which is weird but also cool.
Cravings/Aversions: Still on a salty kick – crackers, cheese, pretzels. No real serious aversions.
Mood: I think I’m back to normal after being a bit grumpy last week. I think the movement and stuff has brightened me up a little bit.
Other Symptoms: Still tired. Still not sleeping through the night. I’ve got a cantaloupe sitting on my bladder.
That’s pretty much it for this week! I know I always say thanks for reading, but I wanted to add to that — Thanks to everyone who reads, but also to everyone who comments & texts me after I post these with questions and comments & to everyone who texts or calls me just to see how I am. I really appreciate everyone’s support and love and all of that ❤
