24 Weeks

This is my weekly pregnancy update. For details on the story behind these updates you can visit my first one here.

The nursery project is in full swing and I'm feeling much better about getting ready for this baby!  This is where we left off last night...

Clearly we are going to need a couple coats of that navy color.  I'm hoping there will be more painting to come tonight!

Pregnancy Play-by-play

How Far Along: 24 Weeks

Size of baby: Baby J is the size of a Papaya.  I guess we stay with Papaya for a few weeks now.  

Total Weight Gain/Loss: + 6.5 

Maternity Clothes: Maternity jeans and T-shirt, "The Suit(s)" or sweatpants and some maternity shirts pretty much take care of my wardrobe these days.  I actually found a pair of maternity jeans and a maternity shirt at a resale shop when I was selling some toys so I didn't even have to pay for them!  I have washed them and plan to give them a shot so we'll see if I still feel like it was a great deal after I wear them for the day.  

Gender: BOY!!! So our top name choice right now is Ty.  I think we are sticking with Ty and we're thinking the middle name might be Athen.  I have commitment issues I guess.  Somehow I think that posting the name on my blog is the equivalent of signing the birth certificate or something.  I'd say we're 95% sure on the Ty and 75% on Athen.  Hopefully I make it to 100% before he gets here!

Movement: Ty has been moving a lot more.  I stay so busy during the day that I forget to pay that much attention but when I get in bed I realize I don't know how much I felt him that day and start to freak out a little.  That's usually when he starts elbowing me from the inside letting me know that he's fine:-)  

Sleep:  Between work and Case teething, just TRY to stop me from sleeping!  I think I'm done going into the office so much now so that will help... now if I could just get Case's teeth to pop through!

Cravings: Baked goods and caffeine free Coke.  Why can't I crave fruits and vegetables when I'm pregnant?!?!

Symptoms: Not much this week that is coming to mind right now.  I would say now until the end is my favorite part of pregnancy!!!

Best moment this week:  Wayne called Case "Ty".  I don't think the name gets much more official than that!  It was SO funny!!!

I love that Wayne called Case "Ty". I'm sure that won't be the last time!
