24 Weeks: 6 months...already? Gulp!

6 months...well that happened fast! I can't believe we only have 16 more weeks until we get to meet our sweet little boy!!

How far along?
24 weeks

How big is baby?
A cantaloupe (this seems like a BIG jump from a grapefruit!) or a GI Joe doll ~11.8"l  and 1.3 lbs

What's baby up to this week?
His see through skin is gradually becoming more opaque and he has a new pink glow thanks to the small capillaries that have recently formed. His lungs are also producing the substance that will make them inflate when he has to breathe on his own. 

I have had some leg cramping...and one morning it even woke me up. I woke
up from a dead sleep, jumped out of bed and yelled out in pain....poor AJ...pretty sure I scared the crap out of him! Other than that I have had some minor backaches and some fatigue...but I think that is more due to how busy we have been lately.

Maternity Clothes?
I ordered my first maternity Stitch Fix...and wasn't overly impressed...the price tag on these items was a little much for me. I am not looking to spend $50+ on a maternity shirt that I won't be able to wear for very long...needless to say I was really disappointed. #ShameOnYouStitchFix

Sleep was 50/50 this week...we had a busy weekend with 2 late nights and have been pretty busy all week so I have been extra tired. HOWEVER, I fall asleep the minute my head hits the pillow and minus my 1-2 bathroom breaks I am sleeping really well. I have had some minor back pain when I wake up (I just wanna sleep on my back or tummy) but other than that it's been good.

Missing Anything?
We did lots of celebrating this last weekend and I would have killed for a beer, a glass of wine, or a margarita #IAintPicky

Not really craving anything...but my preference right now is for sweets. We went out to dinner this weekend and I wanted to skip dinner and order cake instead...which is very unlike me. 

Not a thing...I pretty much like all food at this point.

It's been a little up and down this week...I love the holidays and I love spending time with friends and family, but we have had something going on just about every night and being the homebody I am, I am really craving a quiet evening (or 2) at home.

He is an active little guy and his kicks keep getting stronger and stronger! I just love getting to feel his little kicks and pokes all day long.

Best Moment of the week?
AJ's best friend from college and his wife had their little twin boys on Monday and everyone is happy, healthy, and oh so precious!! Our boys will only be about 4 mos apart and I already foresee many years of friendship and maybe some trouble in their future :)

Pregnancy Brain Moments?
I walked out of the house without my lunch yet again this week...I am such a zombie in the mornings it's always something ;)

Looking forward to?
Can I say Christmas Break again? I have one full day and a half day left until 2 weeks of sweet freedom and relaxation! I.CANNOT.WAIT!

Projects/Baby Gear purchased?
Our glider/recliner FINALLY arrived...there was a mix-up with the delivery and our package was lost! Luckily, they replaced it and shipped us a new one at no charge. 

I ran my first 5k (since getting pregnant) on Sunday morning and I noticed that it was a little harder to catch my breath and my poor legs were so sore and tired. That extra weight is affecting my more than I imagined it would. Other than that I ran a couple of other times...but my new motto is "slow and steady" :)
