Week 24

You are as long as an ear of corn, and you now notice bright lights and may move in response.

We are getting everything boxes up to move soon. You are wiggling around like crazy - which makes me happy and eases my mind. Your Daddy FINALLY felt you kick for the first time this week - which was awesome! So many times, my belly shakes like crazy, but he misses it. He was glad to finally feel you! You are also really responding to our voices - it's adorable.

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy, but still a little overwhelmed and emotional at times.
Energy: Some.
Cravings: Anything sweet

Week 23

You are as big as an eggplant, and your pancreas are developing now.

This was a pretty good week - a little bit more energy.  I did get tendonitis in my right hand, which has been miserable because I can't take anything but Tylenol and that doesn't help.  However, it's starting to feel better and I'm trying not to overdo things.  I'm really distracted this week with moving and thoughts of what I need to do to prepare for you and what I need to buy.  I need to get organized.  I think that after we get moved and settled, I'll have more time to do the custom things I want to do for you.  However, right now, I'm pretty overwhelmed.  There is so much to do in 4 short months.  However, the good news is that you will actually need very little as a newborn, so if I don't get it everything completely finished, I know it will be okay as long as you have diapers, wipes, milk and a lot of love.  :)  However, I do want your room to be beautiful and perfect and I'm excited about all of my ideas!  I just can't wait to see them completed and everything finished!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy, but a little overwhelmed and emotional at times.
Energy:  A little more energy than last week.
Cravings:  Raspberry jelly donuts from Krispy Kreme.  Yeah, I know.  Don't even start.  :)

Week 22

You are the size of a papaya, and your taste buds are becoming sensitive enough to react to what you eat this week.

Not a lot happened this week pregnancy-wise, but we sold our home! Praise God! It only took 8 days with a sign in our yard and a prayer. No Internet listing or even flyers. Woo! We are going to be so busy over the next couple of weeks packing and moving...I'm a little nervous. However, I know it will happen before we know it and we will be so happy in our new home! I can't wait to get started on your yellow/grey room! It's going to be so pretty!!

Stats for the Week:
Mood: Happy (and overwhelmed with all of the house stuff, but grateful!)
Energy:  A little more energy than last week.
Cravings: Sweet things..sigh!  I don't think this is gonna be a good weight month unless I put the brakes on the sweet cravings!

Week 21

You are as long as a carrot, and your bone marrow is beginning to produce blood cells.

Another doctor's appointment this week and you are perfect! Momma, on the other hand, gained 8 whole pounds! In my defense, I think a couple of pounds were fluid. I had to take off my prized wedding rings in Tuesday. My hands swelled so fast in one day that I didn't know if I'd ever get them off. I did find a lovely pair of fake rings at Kohl's that will work until I can squeeze into them again! Here's hoping for Christmas! ;). We put a "for sale by owner" sign in our yard yesterday, so we are hoping that our home sells quickly before we move into our bigger home!

Stats for the Week:
Mood:  Happy!
Energy: Still pretty tired.
Cravings:  Anything bite-sized and chocolate.  I'm sure that has nothing to do with the 8 pound gain lol!
