Weekly Check-In: 24 Weeks!!!!!!!!!!! V-Day!!!!!

Weekly Check-In

How far along?
24 weeks 2 days
I will be staying at this fruit/vegetable for a few weeks.Your baby isn't just sitting around (on your bladder) doing nothing, he's working hard preparing for life outside the womb—perfecting his lungs and packing on the pounds. He'll gain ½ pound this week alone.  Baby's got a fully developed inner ear now. This means his sense of balance is working and he can tell whether he's hanging upside down or right side up. He can also feel you moving, so go ahead, pop in your favorite tunes and boogie.

Maternity clothes?

Yes!! I just bought my dress Im wearing to my first baby shower! 


Im sleeping with a pregnancy pillow that is wicked awesome by the way. It is really funny watching me get out of it in the middle of the night but it is helping so much with the sciatic nerve pain I was having.

Best moment this week?

My favorite moment this week was the finishing of the guitars. John did such a good job on them!!! They turned out perfect! I know our little guy will love them!! Here is a picture of the finished product:

The one that looks yellow is actually a green color. Because of the lighting I could not get it to look right on the camera.

Here is my recent picture from yesterday at 24 weeks 2 days:

And John:

Thinking he isnt eating enough!! But hey he looks good for 24 weeks!! Ha ha ha!!

Food cravings:

 I love sweet tea!!! Thats all!!! Im actually going to say Im starting to get tired of Chickfila. When I told John I was getting burned out with it his jaw dropped. I think its because Ive eaten it the last six months at least 2-3 times a week. Im down to one time a week now.

Belly button in or out?

I cant believe it but my belly button is actually starting to do things. I had a deep belly button so I just knew it would not do much. I was so wrong. It is very shallow now. I bet it pops out or at least stays even.


He is one busy little boy in there!! I love it!! He has his periods were I expect it to happen because he moves at the same time every day. 8-10pm for sure!
What I miss?

I wished that pregnancy pillow didnt take up so much room in our bed. John and I cant even lay next to each other like we use to because of it. I will be happy to get rid of it when this little guy comes!

What I'm looking forward to:

Im looking forward to the baby shower my Aunt and cousins are giving me Nov 5th!!! EEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We made it to Vday with no issues!!! Im so much in love with this little guy!

On a side note my grandmother decided that after looking on Etsy that someone else making the bedding would be a better idea. So I wanted to share what it will kind of look like. Im chaning it up just alittle.

So instead of the teal in the middle Im doing black(where ever that teal fabric is it will be black). The satin ribbon wont be there either. The sheet will be the dark grey color and the bed skirt will be all lines and no circles in the middle. The blanket up at the top will have 4 squares in the middle instead of just one big piece of fabric and will look totally different. Im so excited and cant wait to get it!!!!
