How far along? 24 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/measurements: 36 inches! That's a half inch bigger than last week.
Maternity clothes: I've been wearing Steve's sweatshirts at night lately because they are more comfortable than mine are now.
Stretch marks: Still none.
Sleep: This week I've noticed that I'm getting sleepy a little earlier at night so I've started going to bed between 10 and 10:30pm.
Best moment this week: I signed up for a childbirth class. It doesn't start for a while still but it feels good to have it sorted out.
Miss anything? Nope.
Movement: Tons of movement! It's gotten a lot stronger and sometimes you can see the outside of my belly move. It's really weird! :)
Food Cravings: Nothing specific...maybe chocolate.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: We don't know.
Labor signs: Nope.

Symptoms: My hair is overwhelmingly thick. It's driving me crazy actually. Ha Ha! The other thing that was new this week was I think I had a Braxton Hicks contraction. It just felt like my uterus got really tight, like a kinked muscle but not painful at all, and then it relaxed after a few seconds. The pregnancy app that I have on my phone and some books and other things I've checked all say that you can start to have some of these every once in a while starting around 24 weeks.
Belly button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy. I really like being pregnant and I love feeling the baby move. Even when it feels a little weird or uncomfortable it's still nice because it's basically just a few months of my life that I get to
Looking forward to: Once again I am looking forward to Spring weather! It snowed a little yesterday and now it is is snowing A LOT today! It's April 4th! Come on Spring!

Thanks for reading!
