How far along: 24 weeks today
Total weight gain/loss: +13 lbs
Stretch marks: None so far, I try to remember to moisturize the belly as often as possible (so I get around to it every other day?) I’ve been using Bliss Body Butter in bloode orange and white pepper, which also makes me hungry when I use it 🙂
Maternity clothes: I’ve been wearing maternity pants since end of 1st trimester. They’re just more comfortable. I’m at the point now where no bottoms (except for elastic waist skirts) will fit unless they’re maternity.
Sleep: Sleeping so much! 7 hours isn’t even enough anymore… I swear if it wasn’t for my alarm clock I would sleep for 9-10 hours straight. This is so strange for me since I’m used to sleeping about 6 hours/night before pregnancy.
Food cravings or aversions: Major chicken aversion right now, especially chicken breast. The texture seems so gamey all of a sudden. I seem to crave everything Mexican food: tres leches cake, Topo Chico, avocados, salsa, horchatas… Neither myself nor my hubby are Mexican.
Movement: Consistently everyday, she seems to like moving right after I eat.
Belly button in/out: Still an innie.
Diet: Just trying to eat healthy. I eat a ton of leafy green vegetables (always have) and now I’m packing 2-3 servings of fruit with my lunch instead of the normal 1. Although I have gotten such an insane sweet tooth with pregnancy, and I have to have something sweet after dinner every night!
What I’m loving: My skin looks great! I like feeling the baby move, too.
What I’m not loving: The lower leg pains I’ve been experiencing lately: my calves and shins are super tight whenever I walk/run.
What I miss: Tuna. Being able to fit into all my clothes.
Favourite moment this week: When my puppy decided to cuddle with the bump and act all cute!
What number thread do you think we will be on come July 1st?!: 29!
I have 1 pair of maternity dress pants from Gap Maternity that I love! Maybe try that? I’ve only got 1 pair of maternity dress pants, so I wear them with everything.
