How far along are you? 24 weeks [only one month til I hit 3rd trimester!]
How are you feeling? Definitely starting to feel the strain of the belly. My lower back and hips feel like they are falling apart sometimes and I'm definitely slow to move. I've been a little irritable lately too. AND I'm getting more and more forgetful. Example: Throwing in a load of laundry and leaving it for 3 days until someone asked whose laundry was in the wash. Whoops. Using my broccoli as a side dish instead of the recipe I bought it for...that happened to be called Beef and...you guessed it...Broccoli. And where I prep my food is right where my menu board is. *sigh*
How big is baby? The size of a ear of corn [in length] and at my last appointment a little over a week ago, Mason was weighing in at 1lb 3oz. He's probably a few oz more now :)
How are you sleeping? It depends on the night. I can have 3 good nights of sleep in a row and then a couple really awful ones. Luckily I am not waking up with Charlie horses yet. I think some of my disrupted sleep is due to eczema though.
Food cravings/aversions? I've reached the point where I crave milk all the time. I've been chugging it. I ended up gaining a ton of weight in my last pregnancy from drinking too much milk and actually was told by my doctor that I had to stop gaining so much weight. So I'm trying to keep it to 1ish glass a day.
Any milestones/other thoughts? Lil guy is kicking a ton! He kicks all day long and is pretty peaceful at night (which is nice). He loves to kick me in the bladder right after I eat and my stomach is full. I also have a carseat and a set of cloth diapers now - which is exciting. Hoping to get some more diapers and a breast pump soon. We'll be moving into our house soon, so the crib and dresser will be coming up very soon.
