How far along? 24 Weeks
Total weight gain: almost 17 lbs! WHOA MAMA. Yes, that  means I gained almost 6 lbs. this month… thank you Halloween.
Maternity clothes? as you can see in this pic I am still trying to squeeze into my old favorite UnderAmour shirt for the IOWA Game. Clearly it is not working out.

Stretch marks? Not yet, but I have a baaaaaad feeling that strange brown line is about to make it’s debut below my belly button. Should probably host a contest for someone to help me name it (keep in mind.. husband is very scared of it)
Sleep: still sleeping great
Best moment this week:  Hearing at my 24 week appointment that everything is still looking good & going smoothly! I just feel so lucky & blessed that my pregnancy has been so great so far.. let’s hope we can say the same about the labor! 🙂

Miss Anything? the clear winner… cocktails! already thinking about a mimosa-less thanksgiving morning
Movement: more & more each day!
Food cravings: still sweets & fruit – should probably work on fulfilling my fruit craving more than my sweets craving if I don’t want to gain 50 lbs.
Anything making you queasy or sick: apparently eating an entire bag of grapes wasn’t the best idea..but otherwise, no
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: I thought it would be good to add in a “symptoms” line item – this way I can document that I started having round ligament pain, rib pain & a hefty case of “swollen ankles” right around this time.
Belly Button in or out? In-ish
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY
Looking forward to: the crib will be arriving this week! So excited to see it in the room! We also ordered a new leather ottoman/coffee table to replace our hardwood one that we currently have – that will be here this week as well! I will need to take some pics & share a little house tour soon! 🙂
