Bébé Deux Week 24 Update

{Hello there, wild hair! Just keepin' it real y'all ;)}

Today's date: August 13, 2013

How far along: 24 Weeks - Yay for viability!

Total weight gain: 6 pounds

Size and growth of baby: David is the size of a cantaloupe! {But oh, honeydew...} He is around 1 1/3 pounds, and a full foot long. Although he is pretty lean right now, his body is building up proportionally and he will continue to plump up over the next 16 weeks! David's lungs are growing "branches" as well as a substance that will help his air sacs inflate when he's out in the world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will be changing soon. {via & via}

Baby is a: boy!

Maternity clothing: All clothing, except a few shirts I wear at home, are maternity.

Sleep: I seem to have one night a week where I can't fall asleep until after 2 am. I have a few ideas that may help the next time it happens. Naps are hit or miss, but I at least lay on my side and relax every day. Once I am asleep at night, waking up for a potty break doesn't interfere with going back to sleep.

Movement: I feel movement everyday at least two different times of the day! David does move more on some days than others. I just have to remind myself that he's still pretty small, which is why I'm not doing kick-counting until he's bigger. I do think he got his first round of hiccups the other day! It was super cute :)

Cravings/Aversions: Chocolate chocolate chocolate. Mostly I have wanted chocolate cupcakes, chocolate mint cupcakes, and Nutella. Aversions are no more, but certain foods sound/smell gross depending on the day.

Morning Sickness: This was my second Zofran-free week! I'm diggin' it ;)

Symptoms: Round ligament pain (seems worse than last time!), nesting, a few extra pimples, gas, movement, heartburn, trouble sleeping, peeing a fair amount, and tired.

Labor Signs: None

Belly button in or out: In

How this pregnancy is different than the first: I have gained more weight with this pregnancy, but I also haven't been as sick this time around. I have more round ligament pain, and it can get pretty bad. I feel like I have a shorter temper, but it could just be because I have a toddler getting into everything ;)

The best moment of this past week: Getting more painting done, finally finishing one of my pregnancy projects, spending time with Phil, and the Royals doing so well after the All-Star break!!

What I miss: Nothing at all :)

I'm looking forward to: Getting the glucose test over and done with soon, my parents visiting, and cooler weather!
