Pregnancy: Week 24
How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 16 pounds
Sleep: Trust me, there are interruptions all night long! On average I still have about 2-3 bathroom breaks, which isn't surprising because I am getting up about once and downing a glass of water. I am so thirsty all of the time. Which is crazy, because during the day on average I am drinking at least 130 ounces of water. Another crazy thing when I do when I get up in the middle of the night is lather on lotion. My hands are always dry. The boppy pillow has been really helpful with the tossing and turning, but that is only if my husband is not hogging it!!!
Best Moment this week: Having my 24 week check up. Everything is healthy, and I got to hear baby girl's heartbeat. I also got my baby shower invitations (Thanks Mom).
Food cravings: The standard answer applies here: nothing really. I have been indulging in skinny cow ice cream bars about twice a week. They are really delish and low in calories!
What I miss: A solid night of sleep, and not feeling heartburn (which is something I am feeling almost daily now). Does anyone have advice for curing heartburn? I have tried watching what foods trigger it, but they ALL do. No joke. I have been sticking to natural cures such as a glass of milk or bananas, but it usually fights back with vengeance and returns in a matter of hours.
What I am looking forward to: Finishing the last small parts of the nursery, and my upcoming trips to San Francisco and Phoenix. Then it's almost labor day, which means goodbye to August!!
Milestones: I am 6 months along and couldn't be happier. I still feel great, and am really enjoying this special time between myself and Tim. The bond between us has never been closer, and we have really become quite the team :)
