I am 24 weeks pregnant now, so technically in my sixth month, and just now getting a chance to share my four & five month chalkboards. I know, get with the program right?! So before I share my six month chalkboard, here are these + a little update!
How far along: 24 weeks
Weight gain: 15+ lbs.
Maternity clothes: Wearing mostly maternity clothes or comfy sweats around the house. Warm weather means lots of dresses, I am still loving my Andie Pants (pictured below) & grabbed a pair of maternity shorts on sale for summer (and most likely for post-baby belly as well).
Sleep: Still sleeping great.
Best moment this month: Celebrating Harper’s 3rd birthday, and even though it was so bittersweet, it really makes me excited to know we have another brand new baby on the way to start all over again with firsts.
Worst moment this month: Feeling overwhelmed as Brandon traveled a ton these last few weeks. I think kids at any age are going to have their challenges, but sometimes all of those challenges consume both kids & the walls definitely feel like they’re closing in! It is a constant struggle to balance parenting, spending time with Brandon when he is home, working, blogging, cleaning, having fun & anything else that is left, and when I think about adding another baby to the mix? My head spins a little. I think month five is always the freak out month, so hoping it will pass!
Miss anything: Things are getting a little uncomfortable over here as the belly is getting bigger, making it hard to climb at the playground with the kids, lean into the tub to give baths, etc. and I definitely miss being able to do that all with ease. I could also really go for a margarita, I blame it on the Mexican food cravings & warm weather.
Movement: Lots of kicks, flips & hiccups!
Cravings: Lemonade, strawberries & Mexican food.
Queasy or sick: Feeling good. Second trimester is where it’s at.
Looking forward to: Excited to get started on baby girl’s nursery, painting & putting together some new furniture. And maybe picking a name one of these days? So far, Harper’s suggestion of Snow White is a front runner. 😉
Happy St. Patrick’s Day Eve!! XO45
