How far along are you? 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 15+ lbs
Maternity Clothes? Mostly.
Stretch Marks? None on the belly.
Sleep: Not so great. I'm starting to get really hot at night. But I had an awesome nap today, so I can't complain too much.
Best moments: Visiting Santa Fe with my in-laws and buying a couple of things for baby while we were there.
Missing anything? Being comfortable on road trips. I usually like to drive, but I can only last about an hour without getting a backache.
Movement? Yes, mostly while laying down.
Food Cravings: Rootbeer floats. Baby likes to kick after I have one!
Symptoms: Fatigue. And an itchy belly.
Belly Button in or Out? So shallow!
Happy or Moody? Both! But overall, happy.
Looking Forward to: Seeing my friends before we leave. I guess that's sad, but I'll be happy to see many of them before we move!
I recently read a blog post on Vanilla and Lace about the importance of not complaining when pregnant. Read it here! She talks about how complaining about your pregnancy can be hurtful towards women who cannot conceive or who have lost a baby. I always knew that one should never ask couples the question, "When are you going to have kids?" for the same reason, but I never thought about complaining about pregnancy in the same way. I hope that these Bumpdates aren't too negative. I'm just trying to tell it like it is. Though, I have become more cautious about what I say and write about my pregnancy since reading that blog entry.
p.s. How annoying is it when people ask the kid question?? People need to stop.
We're leaving for Arizona this week! I'm sure we won't have internet for a week or two once we're in our new place, so I don't see myself blogging much after this week. I may have to skip a couple of bump updates. I'm not looking forward to packing up this apartment. Thankfully, we've gotten a lot of offers to help us with that. I just want to throw everything away!
