Bumping It Up

So after a discussion about bellies "popping" yesterday evening, I was thinking that I have probably popped.  This morning I looked in the mirror, and thought, "Hmmm, well, I don't look all that pregnant."  (rather smugly thought this, I must add)
Then I turned to the side.

Hahahahah, I guess I do in fact look quite pregnant!  Also, excuse my jerry curl hair in these pictures.  It's raining, and I am too tired to tame the curls.

So, almost 24 weeks (please compare to just 2 weeks ago, in almost the exact same outfit, egads).

Sex of baby: We are holding fast in not finding out.  I think it is a girl.
Size of baby: A spaghetti squash/ear of corn/foot long hot dog.  These all seem vastly different sizes to me. .
Total Weight Gained:  15 pounds.  Dear Lord.
Maternity Clothes: Pants and skirts. I am loving that elastic waist. All my normal flowy dresses and tops are still in use.

Movement: Baby does not stop! 
Sleep:  I still can't get enough.

What I miss: My energy!
Cravings: Honeycrisp apples and soup- same things I would normally be craving this time of year.

Aversions: Still can't handle chicken.  We had chicken pot pie for dinner Sunday, and I could not do it!
Symptoms:  My back hurts all the time, I'm even more clumsy than normal, and soooo sleepy.
Best Moment this week: Check out the fortune that Hubs received with his fortune cookie on Monday-
So January 10th- will that be the Bean's birthday?  Pretty weird, huh?


  1. you are SO cute! love the fortune... definitely one to keep!

    on my first date with TC (it was a lunch date during the work day), we went to a Chinese restaurant. my fortune said, "someone you recently met will play an important role in your life."

    kept it! :)

  2. I got a fortune cookie just like that when I was preg. I went in on the date it said for my induction!
    You look lovely :-)

  3. Your bump looks adorable!! And that fortune??!!??! So weird!!

  4. Too cute - you've definitely popped, and you have that unmistakable hand-on-bump gesture moms-to-be can't help but do.

  5. You look just so great!

    I'm also craving apples and soup. Which is funny since I hate soup.

  6. You look precious! I have just recently been introduced to Honeycrisp apples, I'm a staunch Granny Smith only girl, but I'm loving these.

  7. the fortune cookie?? CRAZINESS!!! you definitely have that pregnant glow lady ;)

  8. Hottie!! I feel like weeks 22-24 is when I really became noticeably pregnant. At 25 weeks today it just keeps getting bigger....

  9. You look so adorable! How in the world can you wait to find out the gender? I would be to antsy to find out!

  10. You look adorable! Don't sweat the 15 pounds - you're at a good place. We didn't find out the gender of either one of our kids. Each time it was such an amazing moment - like Christmas! I had to laugh at your aversion to chicken, because that was the same during my pregnancy with my daughter. Made me ill just thinking about it. Hope you are feeling well and getting plenty of pampering from your hubby!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
