24 Weeks with Baby V2

How Far Along: 
24 weeks

Size Of Baby?

Maternity Clothes?
Still mixing it up where I can, but mostly maternity clothes!! Finally found my maternity leggings, I had been wearing non-maternity ones that still worked but below the belly! 

Stretch Marks?

We will find out in April!! 

We will share in April, our girl names are pretty much set, but boy names are very few, I will say we have two contenders and two middle names all picked out! 

Soo far so good! M really needs to work on using his alarm clock better. He did drop the baby monitor at 3 in the morning after Noah woke from a bad dream and startled me and apparently the baby, because s/he was kicking and moving like crazy afterwards! Headaches started at the end of week at 3 AM, which didn't make for a good nights sleep! 

Loving Cran-grape juice, but otherwise nothing crazy this week! 

This baby is a moving machine! Mike felt the baby kicking like crazy when we went to bed one night this week! He couldn't believe how strong the kicks were. Baby is still head up according to my 
appointment (and the movement I feel) this week and straight up the middle! 

Weight Gain:
Roughly 13 pounds. 

Great!! Headaches are still persisting! On Wednesday I had a headache from 3 AM until I went to bed and actually had a nap when M came home from work to try help get rid of the headache and I was just exhausted from our day! My nose has started running again as well. Feeling great otherwise, but definitely took advantage of some naps this past week! 

What I Miss?
Can't think of anything.

Items Bought for Baby:
A few little Christmas gifts! 

What the doctor had to say? 
I have graduated from 2 week appointments to 4 weeks for now! My blood pressure is still sitting around 130-135/80-85, so not too bad, but if I notice it climbing I'm to call and get a closer appointment. Fingers crossed we can just sail on by! So we go back in January, where I will have another ultrasound for growth and to check on my placenta for any signs of pre-eclampsia, I will have my sugar test and see the doctor. 

Graduating to 4 week follow ups instead of 2 weeks, especially around the holidays will make my life a bit easier! 
Officially 6 months pregnant!!
Noah saw Santa this week again and we got a smile! 
Mike feeling the baby was exciting as well and I loved his reaction! 
Hosting Christmas at our house with family! 

Belly Button?
In, but I will say it is getting shallower already!

And a bare belly pic:

Looking Forward to: 
Celebrating Christmas!! 

These posts will be a week behind, as I am now 25 weeks.

SO crazy how fast time is going! Yay for less appts! I hate when I move to every two weeks, seems like a pain lol.
I hear you, I am exhausted these days, and am ready for some time off!

Love that belly!! Glad your bp has been ok and you can have less appts. Boo to headaches. Try going for a massage!
