24/25 weeks

Finally a pregnancy update :) It's funny how when you already have two kids that time seems to move faster! A lot of days I even 'forget' I'm pregnant until the end of the day when I relax and baby starts booting around, lol.

How far along: 24 weeks according to dates, 25 weeks according to the ultrasound

Total weight gain: 17 lbs (I wince when I think of this, but I am over halfway through my pregnancy, plus I'm just greatful that my baby is doing well!)

Maternity clothes: yes, mostly (especially pants/shorts)

Sleep: Still sleeping well, and needing naps throughout the week

Movement: I have really noticed an increase in movement and/or the force has become stronger in the last week - a sign that baby is growing bigger and space is becoming a valuable commodity

Gender: at first I was thinking boy, but for the last few months I have been leaning towards girl

What I miss: as weird as this sounds for summertime, I miss being able to drink tea whenever I want.

What I am looking forward to: hitting 30 weeks - don't really know why

Milestones: Officially looking pregnant - 2 weeks ago I finally got my first congrats without first telling them I was pregnant
Sorry for the bad photo, I could pick it apart but I'll spare you, lol.

Thanks ladies. Stacey, yeah it's hard to get used to when with my other pregnancies at 20 weeks I started showing. I do have to remind myself though that it is my 4th pregnancy. Also there are a few other young ladies in my church that are having their first child and are due about 4 weeks before me and I'm sure I'm larger than them. I should know better than to compare, but it's hard not to :) Like I said, I just need to be thankful that things are looking good with baby (especially with having a scare of complications).

So happy to hear that things are going well with the pregnancy! As for comparing your size to other people, just make sure you keep comparing yourself to those who are behind you yet much bigger - it will keep you feeling good about yourself! :)
