24 Weeks

I'm baaack! If you read my last pregnancy update you might be worried, but we got a fantastic prognosis from our MFM specialist. My cervical ultrasounds were fantastic and he decided that after 2 check ups, I was released from his practice with no high risk concerns! I am truly just giving the glory for that to God because He cares for me and knew how scared I was to possibly see my baby boy be premature or have my reproduction halted before we were done growing our family. We are beyond thankful, so now I will continue with my typical updates!

      The man behind the bump - my husband!                           Date night attire! (Monday)

It's hard to tell how big I am in these pictures because of the black dress! It's really comfortable, modest, and classic. 
Dress: Liz Lange Maternity XS from thredUP 
Necklace: Old Navy
Shoes: Old Navy
Flower Clip: homemade for my wedding
Lipstick - L'Oreal infallible red lip stain and balm (highly recommended!)

How many weeks?
 24 weeks 

Weight gain: I weigh 129 lbs, so I have gained about 12 lbs

Maternity Clothes? All day every day! I am rocking a huge bump.

Sleep: I have had a lot of insomnia and have been using lavender and cedarwood to help me relax at night.

Best Moment This Week: My birthday date night! We dropped off Roman at a friends' house, went to Red Lobster, and then shopped like a good ole married couple at Carter's Kids and Bed, Bath, & Beyond.

I also started my cloth diaper stash this week! Yes, we will be using cloth on our little guy. It's so much cheaper. I wish I could have done it with Roman, but with us both in college and him going to daycare it really wasn't a good option. I don't think I could have handled the extra laundry back then, but now it does not seem daunting AT ALL! I'm looking forward to seeing my little guy with a fluffy butt!

I also ordered this diaper from Spray Pal + GroVia
20% of proceeds from the special Little Warrior diaper will go to March of Dimes

Worst Moment This Week: I accidentally skipped my OB appointment! Uh oh. We had just seen our specialist a few days before, so I am not worried. We just rescheduled!

Miss Anything? Being able to roll over in bed without pain in my groin. The act of rolling back and forth is the most painful thing I do all day.

Cravings: Cheeseburgers (still!), Cinnamon Toast Crunch, basically anything I can find flavored with cinnamon (coffee creamer, bagels, etc)

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks (I have about 4-6 per day), acid reflux is starting, deathly pain in my groin when I use my legs to push anything (you know you have all tried to just kick the laundry basket instead of picking it up!) or when I roll over, and I generally just feel huge. I am all baby and I feel like my belly is constantly stretching to accommodate.

Looking Forward To: Having this baby! Getting more fluff (cloth diapers), starting the decorating and nesting process in our nursery (right now it is all just sitting in boxes after our move), and getting some items from my Babylist registry.
