24 Weeks

It's getting late (almost 8!) so I'll be making this a quick post!

How far along? 24 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 10 pounds gained. We go back on Monday so I'll find out more then.
Maternity clothes? Yes. It has been cold this week so I've been wearing maternity pants every day.  I've also worn several maternity shirts from Jessie and I'm wearing a maternity dress in the picture for Jenn's wedding.
Stretch marks? Still none
Sleep: Can't complain.  I've slept pretty good.  I had one night of really awesome sleep where I slept like a rock all night long.
Best moment this week: Seeing my belly move!  The first time I was sitting on the couch Monday.  I wanted to video it, but I had to get up to get my phone.  He of course stopped.  I've seen it several times, including just a minute ago.  It never fails, E-V-E-R-Y time I call Matt over, he stops! 
Miss Anything? I resisted a Coke (and Sprite and Sierra Mist) at a literacy team meeting this week.  SO hard.   
Movement: Definitely.  I can tell he's getting bigger and stronger and I feel him every day now!  I can consistently feel him on my right side.
Food cravings: None. When I'm hungry, I want need to eat ASAP though!  Last night I had to eat a piece of bread before our spaghetti was finished because I thought I was going to pass out.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Gender: Still a boy!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Everything baby related.  Matt and I visited a nursery where Connor will probably go and it was so fun to see all of the little babies.  We're definitely getting very excited!
Other: My rib pain is MUCH better this week.  I can tell on my walks with Gizmo that it just feels different.  I don't know if it's that he's on my bladder or what, but just different.  This past week I also felt him kicking my insides more than he has in the past.  He is still shy and will stop moving anytime Matt puts his hand on my belly.  I want Matt to feel him so badly (and be the first person aside from me) so I hope he'll get more comfortable with his daddy soon :)
