Preggers I: 24 Weeks

How far along? 24 weeks

How I am feeling? Different things at different moments -- happy when I feel the baby move; loved when my hubby puts his hands on my belly; large when I try to roll over in bed; excited to be home and with my hubby for the duration of the pregnancy.

Weight gain/loss:  Weight gain... the right amount.

How big is baby? As long as an ear of corn, or as large as a cantaloupe... 10.5-11.8 inches and 12.7-20.8 oz

Sleep: Getting less and less comfortable... although I have only been uncomfortable since I've arrived home, so I'm hoping I just need to get used to sharing a bed with my hubby and a large puppy.
Boy/Girl Prediction:  I haven't really thought much about it this week... either a boy or a girl.
Baby Nicknames:  Baby, Nugget, or Jitterbug

Best moment this week:  Being back home with my hubby!!!!

Food cravings:  Honey-nut Cheerios and things that are spicy... although, I haven't had the guts to try to make a spicy version of Honey-nut Cheerios
Missing: Nothing, now that I'm home sweet home! 

Maternity Clothes: Yes, and needing to figure out winter clothes ASAP!
Movements:  Yes, and LOVING them!  I think they are really big and noticeable because they are SO much bigger and stronger than they were a few weeks ago... but hubby keeps putting his hand on my stomach and can only feel about 1 in 5 baby kicks/movements... so I guess they're still pretty little and gentle.

Labor Signs: No.  Thank goodness!

General Attitude: Happy to be home... and a little nervous about going back to work today.  I know I've grown so much in the last three weeks -- in a good way -- but I'm a little nervous.

What I am looking forward to this week:  I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday, and it will be good to check in with them again and hear that everything is going well.  Oh, and hubby and I are going deer hunting this weekend -- I apparently will be wearing his old camouflage because I don't fit in my camouflage.  We'll see how this goes.

Milestones:  Well... not a good milestone, but I've noticed a decrease in my bladder size this week.  I'm very curious how this will affect hunting this weekend.
