24 Weeks, Sorry Baby!

I was trying so hard to stay consistent with updates but somehow the last four weeks have just flown by. Sorry baby!

Weight gain: Averaging about 2 pounds most days which I am pleased with. The OB during my appointment today said, “well you are just perfect” which I was thrilled to hear. BP is great and while I am starting to see some serious swelling she wasn’t concerned. Just need to focus on getting in my water, about a gallon a day, and getting my feet up as much as possible.

Miss anything: I was at a business conference this past week and I really miss being able to just go with the flow. Instead, I was constantly worried about eating and moving around enough. By day three one of my amazing friends begged someone to let me sit on the end so I could try and get my feet somewhat up. Made me feel more high maintenance than I like.

Cravings: I’m not necessarily craving anything specific lately. I have noticed an increase in appetite though.

Favorite moments over the last few weeks: His movements are becoming stronger and more constant <3 I forgot what an amazing feeling it is, especially when they are still small and it isn’t painful.

Although my feet weren’t thrilled, I had a wonderful time at Rise Business in Charleston, SC. It was a weekend full of self reflection, amazing speakers, and truly inspirational stories from other small business owners. Now I just need to hunker down and make a decision which path I want to take.

I am also grateful to have finally hit 24 weeks. Even though this is my third pregnancy I am just as nervous as I was with my first.

Looking forward to: We FINALLY have a date night this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. Since our move to STL we haven’t had an opportunity to really connect as a couple and finally hit a point where that wasn’t gonna cut it anymore. We signed up for Care.com so we could find someone who we could rely on as our family grows. We met a wonder woman who the kids took to immediately. Definitely looking forward to adding regular date nights to our calendar before and after babes arrives.

I’m also looking forward to Thanksgiving when I get to see my beautiful niece and handsome nephew. We FaceTime often but it’s never as nice as giving them all the hugs and kisses I can.
