Bumpdate: 24 Weeks

while out shopping on Tuesday...

size of the baby: cantaloupe 

total weight gain: 15.5 lbs. - which I'm perfectly happy with :) 

gender: Baby Girl - Miss Olivia Rose 

maternity clothes: All maternity pants & I finally found a great pair of jeans for spring! They were randomly on the Old Navy clearance rack for $12 & I snatched them right up. They're a boyfriend style, which I think will look really cute with sandals! I'm still mixing in a lot of non-maternity tops... 

movement: Eric finally felt her move! 

missing: I really, really, really want some sandwich meat. Just a good cold sub. But since that's off limits, I'm making due with grilled ham & cheese instead. 

craving: Easter candy. I want all of it. Then I had to go & make these bars... and I want to eat the whole pan but I've been limiting myself to one per day! 

exercise: Averaged over 10,000 steps per day this week! And as I'm writing this I'm just getting home from a 4 mile walk with the dog. Warmer weather is definitely going to help me out in this category! 

symptoms: My nose is really dry every morning, despite the fact that I basically sleep on top of the humidifier every night. Other than that, nothing to speak of. 

Ella: is independent as ever. She had her developmental screening at the pediatrician on Monday & passed with flying colors. She was a total show off - counting & complimenting the doctor on her stethoscope. (Yes, she really used the word stethoscope - thanks Doc McStuffins.) I couldn't have been more proud! 

looking forward to: seeing my parents tomorrow night, it's been a month - which is the longest Ella has ever gone without seeing them. We're spending Friday & Saturday at the country house with them, then going to Eric's mom's for Easter on Sunday. It should be the perfect ending to our Spring Break. 

best moments: 
  • The crib is set up! I'm absolutely loving how her room is slowly coming together!
  • I had a great time shopping with my sister-in-laws & Eric's mom on Tuesday. We found some great deals & it was so nice to spend some time with them. 
  • Getting my lab work out of the way. It wasn't fun while I was in the process, but at least it's done & over with now. Fingers crossed it's my last before this baby comes!
