Ok, so I have been a bit late with my recent updates! Busy, busy, busy. I must say that I am amazed that I am 6 months along! Wow – time goes so quickly. But each step of this  journey is so amazing. Feeling kicks, researching birth, planning a nursery and preparing to meet our little girl! So awesome. Here is my most recent update. It is actually on time as I am 24 weeks TODAY!


How far along? 24 weeks

Baby is the size of: a cantelope

Maternity clothes? yes – it has been great to go to my closet and have a selection. My Gap maternity jeans are so great! And while the weather stays warm enough, dresses are a wonderful option.

Stretch marks? nope 

Sleep: sleeping well. I just want so much of it! Ha!

Best moment this week: Shopping and spending time with my dear sis-in-love Caitlin and buying my first gourds/pumpkins at our local orchard! Autumn is coming!

Have you told family and friends? Yes!

Miss Anything? energy, sleeping on my back…

Movement: Yes! And it is awesome!! Albert felt a few good kicks this week as well. 

Food cravings: All things autumn! I really want fresh pressed apple cider like now. And I made a spice cake with cream cheese frosting – whoa. Pair that with a glass of milk = heavenly.

Anything making you queasy or sick: not anything specific, just need to eat consistently.


Have you started to show yet? Oh yeah. For sure.

Labor Signs: nope

Symptoms: Lack of energy, stretching pains now and then, more bathroom breaks…

Belly Button in or out? in, but flatter.

Wedding rings on or off? on

Weekly Wisdom: drink lots of water! I feel like I can’t get enough sometimes.

Looking forward to: working on the nursery and getting ready for vacation! Yay!!

Milestones: Our baby’s translucent skin is now becoming more opaque and because of recent capillary formation, her skin has a new pink glow.
