Things are trucking right along! It’s so crazy how fast the weeks seem to be going by. Part of that is the fact that the last few weeks have been absolutely CRAZY at work. I’m so exhausted by the time I get home I eat, shower, and jump in bed. No joke, I was in bed at 7:00 Thursday night. I was SO tired. I was at work from 6:30am until almost 5pm, and I stood on my feet for 7 1/2 hours straight in surgery that morning. I’m not sure how much longer my body or my baby are going to let me have days like that.
In other news, Morning Sickness has reared it’s ugly head again! I thought I was well past this, but the last couple weeks I’ve been getting sick after waking up in the morning. Thank goodness it only seems to be morning sickness and doesn’t last all throughout the day like it did earlier in my pregnancy. Still, I’d rather it go away again!
Alright, here we go with the usual update!
How far along? 24 weeks (This is considered Viability Day, or Vday, meaning that most medical
professionals would attempt to use intensive medical intervention to save the
life of the baby if it is born on this day or after. A nice milestone, but
baby boy needs to keep on cookin’!)
Total weight gain: +2lbs according to my scale this morning! Whoa! When did that happen?!
Maternity clothes? Still trying to find the right ones…
Stretch marks? No new ones.
Sleep: Can’t get enough.
Best moment this week: I’ve been too tired for anything exciting to happen.
Miss Anything? Sleep.
Movement: He has been moving A LOT this week! I love it!
Food cravings: Milk. Ice cold milk. Movie theater popcorn.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I’ve thrown up two mornings this week. Not a happy pregnant lady. Go away morning sickness!

Next appointment: September 24th – glucose test. Yuck!
