oh baby | twenty-four weeks

how far along? | 24 weeks {six months!}

due date: january 14, 2016

baby's size | a cantaloupe - he is approximately 10.5-11.8 inches long and 12.7-20.8 ounces

gender | a baby boy!
 
feeling | not as good as the past few weeks but still can't complain... just a little bit more tired than i have been {probably from a new lack of sleep} but again, nothing too bad! overall, i am really enjoying being pregnant ♥
maternity clothes | still a little of both! i am currently up six pounds and it's a mixture for now. thanks for the maternity clothes recommendations ♥

workouts | a few walks- not enough stretching/yoga this week.

sleep | i didn't sleep much sunday or monday night and it was hard to get through the workdays - teaching is no joke when you do get rest! tuesday night, i took half of a unisom pill around 11pm and it worked amazingly... i wasn't too groggy in the morning and was able to sleep. i have a new feeling of empathy towards those who suffer from insomnia and i feel so bad for anyone who goes through that regularly... 

cravings | well... i have been wanting a lot of things that are not good for me but have been trying to restrict and eat as healthy as possible. {we are talking about all of my favorite junk foods: peanut butter cups, doritos, sour patch kids, swedish fish, strawberry blizzards, chimichangas, etc} i want it all.
fun facts | his see-through skin is gradually becoming more opaque and it's got a new pink glow, thanks to the small capillaries that have recently formed.

movement | lots!! he loves to move around and dance at night - mr. monaco has been able to feel him several times this week- yay!

miss anything | still beer more than anything. 
best moment of the week | spending saturday morning at the market, an afternoon with friends, organizing his room a little bit and then enjoying a netflix bender with mr. monaco that evening 

looking forward to | a weekend in the midwest. i absolutely love going there in the fall and can't wait to spend time with family and friends - while enjoying a wedding and our first baby shower!

how's dad? amazing. i am so proud of him lately... he is trying so hard to help me out in any way possible and it melts my heart- thank you.

next appointment | friday, october 16 {i will be 27 weeks and it will be glucose testing time- prayers already for that, please!}

  3. Pregnancy gives you all kinds of cravings for the bad things! My kick right now is cereal at night. And prayers for that glucose test; I'm sure all will be fine for you. I had mine on Tuesday and it wasn't so bad!

  7. The last trimester was my favorite time to be pregnant! Yes, you pee a lot, yes, you get much larger, but that's when I really felt like a mama in progress. :)
