How far along? 24w6d
Baby is the size of: the ear of a corn, in my belly! babe gained about 4 ounces in the last week.
Total weight gain: 10lbs! double digits!
Maternity clothes? yes. but im still waiting to get OUT of the leggings and INTO the dresses. come on weather! {this weeks forecast... 30 degrees, rain rain & snow snow. wtf!}      
Stretch marks? not seeing any!
Sleep: was doing awesome until last nights insomnia stretched. i did sleep 6am-2pm today though.
Best moment this week: mommy (me) turned 26 on the same day baby turned 24w! big marks for us! and daddy took us to see flash dance... baby moved the ENTIRE show, so we came home and played SoYouThinkYouCanDance youtube videos for 2 hours. and baby kept on movin :) baby G is a lover of all things dubstep! like this incredible kick ass video of the 3 ---> Dance Audition {seriously, WATCH THEM! especially the last man in red. you'll be turned on. or maybe thats just me.}

Miss Anything? WARM WEATHER.
Movement: my little dancin machine!
Food cravings: panera mac & cheese. had it 3 days in a row this weekend. oopsies!
Anything making you queasy or sick: the smell of ranch REALLY was buggin me out on Saturday.
Gender: baby G is a HE!

Labor Signs: thank goodness no!
Symptoms: big mama in the house. couldnt get comfortable in my theater seat for flash dance! oh oh. and i had MAJOR water retention. my ankles became cankles and my socks left serious indents around my ankles. whoa nelly!
Belly Button in or out? still rockin the innie! its gunna be out soon tho!
Wedding rings on or off? on. altho, i do take them off for bed now.

Happy or Moody most of the time: im either happy or tired ;)
Looking forward to: our ultrasound on wednesday! baby G didnt fully cooperate for the full 70 minute ultrasound at 20w, so we get another 40 minute ultrasound this week! (at 25w2d). i cant wait to see him!

Your Baby:
  • Is just about a foot long now. I believe it is a tradition to consume a foot-long sub sandwich or hot dog in your baby’s honor at this point. I also believe I just made that up.
  • Is still very skinny looking, with translucent skin, but this will all start changing soon.
  • Is officially at the edge of viability, and most hospitals would automatically attempt every possible life-saving option if your baby were to be born now.

aaand you get a sneak peak at the nursery in progress! part 3 post coming soon ;)
