24 Weeks: bump pics and nursery updates

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Solidly into week 24 of this pregnancy thing. Thought I would give y'all an update about how I'm feeling and what I've been working on. Our 24 week appointment was yesterday and lasted about 5minutes. Heartbeat was strong, I'm not having an complications, so we were in and out. Next about 28 weeks=Glucose Test.... keep me in your prayers because it seems everyone gets Gestational Diabetes these days!

2013 Goal Update:
*Bible Reading: Still going strong! Made it through 1-2 Chronicles and Romans! Now onto Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther :-)
*1200 Monthly Fitness Minutes: YES!! Every Month and usually over that!!! So happy that even pregnant I can continue my healthy life goals!
*Bucket List.... not doing so hot here...but having a baby is kind of a big one on my bucket list so that counts right?
*Resolving to do one of the following before the end of August: Hike Taum Sauk Mt, line dance, or run a 5k...might be pushing it on the 5k thing lol

Weight Gain +10lbs (CW:172)

Bump: yep! even the dr confirmed yesterday that I have a "lil bump with a strong heartbeat" (her exact words!)

Movements: YES! baby boy is kickin and movin all over especially when I lay down at night! and Daddy FINALLY got to feel his first good kick!

Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!

Names: Yep- decided. but it's a secret

Cravings: mexican food..... every day...but i haven't given in which is probably why I'm still craving it.. i let myself indulge in it maybe 1-2 times per week and usually only get a taco or 2.

Complications: still skin rashes :-(

Contractions: NOPE

Coping mechanisms: swimming! hot baths! mexican food :-)

Next Appt: 28 weeks: August 13th: Glucose Screening Test

Here's a couple pictures of things I've been working on for the bedroom: Baby Boy will be sharing with me, so I get to find ways to integrate baby/storage/usefullness into my bedroom without losing MY room.

changing station: whole thing only cost about $15 including the wall shelves and mobile!

another set of shelves with a mirror I made and my bunny Albert

And here's one last bump for the road: 24 Weeks!

Happy July Everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your summer!

    Too cute! The glucose test is horrible. It made me feel extremely ill. Just try not to throw it up because they make you do it again, even if you lasted 59 minutes of the time! I know what you mean about craving Mexican food. I swear, my husband is so sick of Chipotle! I want that all the time. We have only eaten there 5 times or so in 9 months, so I think he got off rather easy! I wanted Taco Bell a lot at first, too.
