Pregnancy ~ 24 Weeks

 
How far along? 24 weeks last Saturday
Baby size: Size of an ear of corn- a foot long
Gender: Boy
Favorite Maternity Clothes: Still loving my maternity jeans and leggings. I bought a pair of workout pants from Four Two Fitness - I'm really happy with the way they fit and how they come up over my belly - so no lines. I've been searching for the perfect pair for spin, gym, relaxing, and finally found them. I've always loved Lululemon and these have a similar feeling, but come up higher on my belly.
Sleep: Some nights are better than others, but overall no problems.
Missing anything: Might sound silly, but some of my pre-pregnancy clothes. My wardrobe has felt very limited, but that's good because it will inspire me to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes once the baby is born.
Best moment this week(s): Last week we celebrated Todd's birthday! We kept talking about how this is his last birthday without a little guy running around :) Such a fun thought! We went up to Tahoe over the weekend with a big group of friends and celebrated. It was a bummer the 49ers lost the football game - sad, but at least the Broncos are going to the Superbowl, so that makes my brother happy!
Baby movement: I've been feeling lots of movement, especially in the early mornings when I get to work and late evenings after dinner. Todd felt him for the first time - marking the date Jan. 22 :)!! It feels so funny and different...someone told me it feels sort of like a snake inside of you and I would totally agree, but now it feels like a kicking snake - haha. 
Cravings: I've been craving yogurt and fruit. That always sounds so good.
Anything I really don't like: Everything sounds good these days!
Nursery planning: We bought the first piece of furniture for the nursery - a dresser/changing table from Pottery Barn Kids. Can't wait to get it and start putting the clothes we've received in it and organizing some baby stuff. I've also started looking at prints for above the changing table and bassinet... I'm liking elephants and whales right now - greys and blues. I'll start showing some of my ideas soon.
Exercise: I was sick last week with a cold so didn't get much exercise, but this week I've already worked out twice - Pop Physique (I've modified for pregnancy) and gym. Feeling good, exercise make me feel so much better and I hope it makes the baby feel better too.
Looking forward to: Excited for a relaxing weekend in SF. We're working on our registry this weekend and figuring out what we need. I'm feeling the "nesting" so going to start cleaning out drawers and getting things organized. The warm weather in SF makes it feel like spring - time for some spring cleaning.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
