24 weeks...

I was a great poster for a few weeks, and now I am horrible! But I have a test on Tuesday, plus a HUGE Greek midterm. It's a take home midterm, but that means he just made it even longer!

So here is my 24 week update. No picture of me this week. I tried to get Bech to take one this morning (after he took it, he handed the camera to me and said, "I'm leaving the room while you look at this." Ha...I just don't like pictures of myself right now!) But I wasn't crazy about them, so maybe next week!

How far along: 24 weeks and 1 day!

Baby size: 12 inches, 1 1/3 pound--whooo! He is over a pound now--that is crazy!

Maternity clothes: Actually today I am wearing a non-maternity shirt--but most days, yup!

Sleep: I have been sleeping great lately, except for when I have random hot flashes.

Best moment this week: The crib came in! And we bought the mattress yesterday. So we spent yesterday afternoon organizing his room. The crib is set up, so now I need to start on the skirt and curtains!

Movement: He moves a LOT! And sometimes it hurts. Which worries me--I mean, he's really small right now...what's it going to feel like in a few weeks or months? Also, Bech has been able to feel him a lot. Plus, when he kicks, you can sometimes see my stomach move, which is weird.

Food cravings: Jolly Ranchers and frozen yogurt (but the whole state of Vermont is obsessed with their native Ben & Jerrys, so no frozen yogurt at all! But I will be in DC in 2 1/2 weeks, so I plan on eating at Tangy Sweet at least once or twice!).

What I miss: Margaritas. I know I say it every week, but I really do miss it!

What I am looking forward to: Continuing to put together the nursery

Milestones: I don't know--I guess that Jack is viable now. Meaning, that if something crazy happened and he was born tomorrow, he has a chance for survival.

Pregnancy Symptoms: I think I have cried 5 times this weekend!

Stretch marks: nope :)
