24 Week Baby Update

So this update is just a tad bit late since I am now 25 weeks, but I still wanted to post it. I will post my 25 week update later on this week and hopefully get all caught up. This is such an exciting and new time for Chanse and me and I don't want to ever forget it!

24 Weeks!

How far along? 24 weeks!
Total weight gain:  10 lbs at my last appointment
Maternity clothes? I am planning on getting some very soon. Most of my jeans are too tight in the waste so I have resorted to maxi dresses, skirts, leggings, and sweats.
Stretch marks? No 
Sleep: I wake up a lot because she will move in the night or because I have to go the bathroom. I kind of like waking up to her moving though, it comforts me :)
Best moment this week: When Chanse saw our baby girl kick my stomach, and then when my mom saw her do it too! I love seeing the looks on their faces!
Miss anything? I miss sleeping on my stomach. That is no longer an option haha
Movement: She has moved a lot more this past week and I really love it! I have seen her kick around quite a few times, and she puts pressure on different areas. I think as far as baby goes she isn't a huge mover though, or she is just so far back that I don't feel her a ton.
Food cravings: Sadly I have been craving things that are bad for me like french fries and waffles haha. I'm doing my best to incorporate those fruits and veggies though!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Apples are so acidic that they make my acid reflux really bad and this makes me pretty sick :(
Gender: Girl 
Labor signs: Nope
Symptoms: I have some cramping and pains in my stomach, and I feel like my abs are super sore. She has also been favoring the right side of my stomach lately, and I think she is pinching my sciatic nerve because I have been getting some major side aches :/
Belly button in or out? In, but it is more out than it was last week haha
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I am very emotional ha, I think it is a mix between the excitement of the baby and the stress of trying to finish my last semester of college.
Looking forward to: Graduation! It isn't related directly to my sweet baby girl, but the sooner I graduate, the sooner she will come! :)

And here is my regular awkward gym picture haha. I always take one because you can actually see my stomach haha
People still are shocked when I tell them that I am 6 months along, and they tell me that I am still so small. I feel like I feel her so much more than I have in the past though, and I am interested to see just how much my body is going to change in the next couple of months. Right now I am just going to enjoy being pregnant, and preparing to be a mom to my precious little angel :)
