24 weeks!

24 week bumpage

How far along: 24 weeks

Size of baby: According to thebump.com Jaqs is still the size of a papaya! She's about a foot long and weighs around a pound and a half.

Total weight gain: I think I've hit the 10 pound mark. My January weigh-in may be a little scary after all the Christmas goodies I'm  we're about to enjoy ;-)

Gender: Baby girl!

Movement: Yes, lots of movement. She's the busiest around 8 in the morning then again around 10 p.m. It's so cool to watch my belly bulge as she kicks, flips and flops. Last night I got her to respond to me for the first time, too! I hadn't felt her in awhile so I shook my belly a little bit, and she started squirming around :) Daddy didn't like that I woke up baby girl, though. I won't do that when she's here, promise!

Sleep: Sleep is still good. I do wake up with numb hands more often than I ever have, though.

What I miss: Being comfortable in jeans is about the only thing I can think of! Thank goodness for leggings.

Cravings: I've had a major sweet tooth lately...no bueno.

Symptoms: Just the numb hands every now and then. I really can't complain, we're smooth sailing right now!

I didn't like my hair in this pic,
so how about a close-up? ;)
Maternity clothes: A combination of both.

Best moment this week: So much has happened in the last 2 weeks:
-Rob felt Jaqs move for the first time on December 8th. That was such a sweet moment...we were both so excited!
-She's also been giving her Pappa B "high-fives" and squirming around for Grammie since we've been home-home in Abilene. They love it. I think Jaqs already has them right where she wants them!
-Baby girl's crib is set up in her room....that's still crazy to me! 
-I have her bedding fabric picked out, and Rob's grandmother is going to make it for us. Now we need to find a gilder chair that we love.
-Realizing that I'm almost 6 month pregnant. My goodness! Time's flying.
