How far along:
24 Weeks. Although I feel much bigger than that. I'm sure my tummy wasn't this round at 24 weeks with Max. I had a check-up today and I'm measuring normal though, so I'm sure all is ok :)
Total weight gain/loss:
I have gained 8 kilos so far and lost 2, making it a 6kg total gain. We've started eating a lot healthier now that I am through the nauseous stage. So hopefully I can keep future gains in check.
Like I did when I was pregnant with Max, I've been relying on belly bands and pants extenders so that I can keep wearing my regular pants, skirts and jeans. I did buy the most comfortable maxi skirt the other day, but haven't bought any actual maternity clothes yet.
I need to pee constantly so I am waking up 4 or 5 times a night. My hips and back have started aching at night too, so that's also keeping me awake. Plus Max likes to climb into our bed at random hours of the night and wriggle around. I have pretty much accepted the fact that it will be a few more years before I get a good nights sleep!
Best moment this week:
Having people comment on my belly. I love that I'm at the stage where people that don't know me are sure that I'm pregnant and not just really chubby :)
I have been able to feel him move since about 16 weeks, and Sean felt him move for the first time two weeks ago. He has been kicking like crazy these last few days and I love it!!
Berries and vegemite. Not together, that would be gross. Vegemite seems to be the big one at the moment, I can't get enough of the stuff. Spread with cream cheese I'm loving it on toast, on sandwiches and on rice crackers. Yum!
Thankfully none :)
Belly Button in or out:
Still in, but getting very shallow. Although it didn't pop with Max, so it might stay in again.
What I miss:
Soft cheese, an occasional glass of champagne and sleeping through the night.
What I am looking forward to:
Introducing this little guy to Max.
Best advice I can give myself - enjoy every moment I might not get to experience this again.
Milestones:Seeing the baby at our 20 week scan, having Sean and Max feel the baby kick for the first time, and no longer throwing up every second or third morning.
