24 Weeks...Sweet Caroline

{I included Jeff this week as daddy needs a little attention, too} ;)

How Far Along? 24 weeks, 5 days…108 days to go!
Size of Little Miss? 12.5 inches long and 1.25 pounds, which equals an ear of corn--skinny little thing isn't she?
Maternity Clothes? So thankful so many of my pre-prego clothes still work though the bottoms have all been switched out for maternity wear. Being pregnant in the winter definitely has its perks. Although, I had to spend quite a bit on new workout gear...those XS tops and bottoms obviously have to be put away for awhile-HA!
Weight Gain? 17 pounds…only up 1 pound, even after all the Thanksgiving deliciousness--I'll take it! I'm definitely on track with the 1 pound per week guidance my doctor gave me, though I am finding I am getting full a lot more quickly these days. Snacking is helping me in this area.
Stretch Marks? Not so far--thank you Lord!
Gender? As if you didn't know ;)...pink, pink, and more pink!
Movement?She is a quite the little mover in the afternoon and evening, and loves to offer her Mommy a sweet little jab every now and then in the middle of the night
Sleep? That's a joke, right? Between going over my to-do list at all hours of the night, bathroom breaks, and having to sleep on my side, this area is a big fail.
Food Cravings? More with the apple cider and I love english muffin sandwiches for breakfast!
What I Miss? Holiday cocktails, running {still doing the elliptical and strength training, but I want to run a race right now SO badly}, and I'd most certainly like a cold ham sandwich, too.
Symptoms? Itchiness, Braxton Hicks--oh yes, now I know what these puppies are and OUCH, and swollen legs {ewww}
Best Moment of the Week? When we were flying home Sunday, Jeff got out his book and read a few chapters of the baby book he bought...he is so intent on figuring out as much as possible about pregnancy and what's to come

our fun walk on the beach in Hilton Head
and basically the only time you'll ever see me without makeup
And there you have it, Happy Hump Day!

    I think it's about the cutest thing I've ever heard that Jeff pulled out the pregnancy books out on the plane and started a little study session!

  18. There is this oil called Mother's Friend that is supposed to help with stretch marks but I used it for the itchiness. It was the only thing that helped me! I could only find it online.

    You look absolutely adorable, by the way!

  22. As soon as I read that title I found myself singing "sweeeet Caroline..bum bum bum" ha! The band here at Ole Miss plays that during every game.
    You are looking so cute! And I think it is too sweet that Jeff is reading up on the pregnancy too!
