24 Weeks....

So much for trying to get better about doing my posts on Monday.  Hopefully one day things will slow down and I can get it together, but I have a feeling that is not going to happen before Hudson gets here.


Total Weight Gain: I will let you know after my appointment next Wednesday.  I have felt extremely pregnant, and very large this week.  Usually when people ask me how I feel my response is typically "great, i don't even feel pregnant" , well that has changed this week.


Sleep: Other than having terrible storms for two nights this week, and being woke up I have been sleeping really great.  Even though I have been sleeping really well part of feeling really pregnant this week has been the fact that I am so tired.  I am not the type to nap, I can never get settled enough to nap, and I am usually on the go until I fall asleep.  Well this week there have been several days its all I can do to get home and lay down for a little while. 


Food/Eating: I have developed a new found love for chocolate chip cookies this week.  I made the mistake of buying some when I went to Kroger on Monday, and I have not been able to stay out of them.  I have learned my lesson and will not have them in the house because I clearly have no self control.  I have also had a few nausea spells this week, nothing in particular made me sick I just feel sick for a bit and then it goes away.

Movement: Well I could not wait to feel him start moving, and now he never stops moving.  It makes my heart melt every time I feel it, and luckily he is on the same schedule as me, and I don't wake up from him moving at night, but as soon as my feet hit the floor his do too.  Sometimes I "think" I can tell what he is doing as in I can tell when he is just kicked and when he is just wiggling around.  You know how when you were young and you would do flips under water and count how many you can do without taking a breath?  I think Hudson is playing that game sometimes too.  I know what I am feeling now is just minor compared to how it will be, but I am loving every minute of it.

Gender: The first boy for my family :)

What I miss: Energy.  I feel like I have so much to do, but like I said lately its all I can do to get home and relax. 

What I am looking forward to: going to the Dr. next week and hearing his heartbeat.

Best Moment of the week: Just being able to feel how much he moves.  Its an unsettling feeling when you are not at the point of feeling movement, and not knowing that everything is OK.  Now I know he is at least moving around in there and still kicking.

Questions for other moms: When did the nesting stage hit you?  I keep waiting for it, because my house needs a good cleaning and organizing, but I have not had the urge to do it yet.


I apologize for the bathroom picture again this week.  I had Luke snap a picture before he left for work, but my hair was still wet, and I had not put a drop of makeup on so it was not a pretty sight.  I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!

  1. So glad you're finally feeling him... it's such a special thing that only moms get to experience! As for nesting, I think it's probably different for everyone. I cleaned the inside of our outdoor garbage cans yesterday so I know I'm there! Believe me, you will KNOW when it hits! Your closets, shelves, cabinets- nothing will be safe!
