Here's the thing. I'm not where I want to be. But I wasn't at 24 weeks with Sophie either and now I love that I have that picture and it was documented so I will share this.
Just like the last 24 weeks while pregnant with Sophie I am frazzled (and 24 weeks pregnant with Claire).
This is the month where Jacob travels a lot and it's hard.
So here I am in my yoga pants and wrinkled shirt with my hair undone. But I wanted to remember it's length and these frazzled days with two (very) lively little girls (3 1/2 and 1 1/2) who love to seek out mischief together... but I'm sooo thankful they have so much fun together and love being with each other.
You can tell I was frustrated by my children's smiles (or lack thereof). But we got it done!
To clarify- I know I'm big. Telling a pregnant woman that is just rude. Asking if the woman is sure there aren't multiples in there is rude. I've been big with both girls too. With Claire I thought it was because of the bizarre surgery while I was 16 weeks pregnant (and maybe it was) or maybe it's just my frame/make up. So...
How far along? 24 weeks (Baby's the length of a cantaloupe or about 12 inches from head to heel).
Total weight gain: 16 lbs. Clearly not doing well this pregnancy....
Maternity clothes? Um.. seriously? I never left them.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep: Decent but trouble falling asleep.
Miss Anything? So much it's not funny. Mainly my patience.
Movement: A lot! This little one is active.
Food cravings: Not really. Just eating too much junk.. :(
Anything making you queasy or sick: Aspartame.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: Heartburn. So.. according to the wife's tales he should have a head of hair (that would be a first!). Extreme hip pain. Extremely extreme.
Belly Button in or out? Outie ish.
Wedding rings on or off? No... I've already started to swell up. Thanks a lot poor eating.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy and carefree but the patience.. where did my patience go?!
Highlight of the week: Claire and Sophie playing and giggling together so much.. It's such a gift. And... I'm turning 36 this week! So here's to being pregnant and over 35. Woop.
Looking forward to: Getting the girls transitioned into one room. They are super excited (well, Claire is, Sophie has no idea what's happening).
