How far along: 24 weeks
Symptoms: Lower back pain
Nicknames/Names: We haven’t picked a name yet, but we have a front runner.
Best moment of this week: Hearing baby girls heartbeat again. Everything is healthy and she is growing so well…so am I 🙂
Miss anything: It’s getting more difficult to do normal tasks. The other day at church I was sitting down and I tried to grab my purse and I couldn’t. Also, it’s becoming more difficult to put my pants on.
Movement: Baby girl is a mover. She loves when I eat and when I lay down. She also loves when her dad puts his hands on my belly and talks to her.
Maternity Clothes: I recently bought 4 dresses from Walmart. I went maternity shopping at Target and I attempted to buy pants. They didn’t fit me right and I kept thinking, “I only have 4 more months of this and it will be in the heat of summer. I think I want dresses.” Walmart maternity dresses are literally $10. I bought 4 and I love them. Some of my pants still fit me with my maternity bands, I’m sure I’ll buy more shirts and pants later.
Food cravings: Soda pop. I never drank soda before I was pregnant, but I think my body is craving sugar/caffeine because I am so tired. I don’t give in to my craving, but I still want it.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Red sauce pizza
Have you started to show yet: I am definitely showing. However, I still have to tell people I am pregnant. I think they are just being courteous.
Looking forward to: I want her to keep growing healthy and strong, but I am so excited to meet her.
