24 Weeks

We're making some progress on the bump as well as the kitchen this month. After taking these pics I am realizing that I'm noticing the bump more so then it is really showing but I swear it's there. We are picking out our countertops today so I'm hoping in the next month the kitchen will be basically finished!

This week, Baby is the size of a: Cantaloupe 
How far along? 24 weeks
Due date: March 25, 2012
Total weight gain/loss: Finally gaining a little weight for a total of 2 lbs gained
Maternity clothes? Pants yes. My maternity pants still don't stay up well but my regular pants don't botton so loose maternity pants it is. I also got a pair of yoga pants that I am absolutely loving. Almost all of my dresses and tops still fit but I have bought 2 maternity shirts for days when I want to be really comfortable
Sleep: Sleep has been hit or miss. I'm still having vivid dreams and getting up a lot but I have gotten a couple of good nights sleep recently. I also can't really sleep in anymore. I get up at 8 am pretty much regardless of how late I could sleep in.
Best moment this month: Feeling the baby move. Some days it's just a little but other days I can feel almost constant movement.
Movement: Definitely a large increase in movement this month. There have been a lot of flips and kicks and a couple of possible cases of hiccups.
Food cravings: I think this has a lot more to do with our kitchen reno and less to do with the pregnancy, but I'm craving a home cooked meal. We've been eating out for about a week and a half and I'm a bit over it.
Symptoms: I would like a new pair of hips but that is old news at this point. New this month is the worse case of heartburn I've ever experienced (It woke me up ever time I managed to fall asleep for a night) and congestion. I also have been very weepy. Pretty much anything can get me balling my eyes out and I don't even know why I'm crying. The baby has also decided to occupy the space where my lungs used to live so I can't walk up a flight of stairs without taking a break.
Gender: Boy!
Feeling toward Pregnancy: I'm feeling a bit beat up. I desperately want to go for a run but I can barely walk at the end of a day of normal walking. I'd like to feel a bit better but I am starting to get a real bump which is fun.
What I miss: Running and going to the bathroom less than 10 times a day
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the kitchen so that we can start working on the baby's area.
Milestones: Finding out the gender.
