My Pregnancy: 24 weeks

How far along: 24 weeks 

Total weight gain:  12 lbs. 
Maternity clothes: Definitely wearing maternity jeans or leggings, and I alternate between a handful of maternity tops. However, I'm also wearing regular (long) tank tops underneath sweaters that are non-maternity. As long as my belly has room, I wear it! 

Stretch marks: No
Sleep: Changes by the night. Not consistent at all lately. Unfortunately, I was hoping for some time without too much interrupted sleep before my new little mister arrives, but with my bladder and strange dreams, I'm still waking up at least 1-2 times during the night. 
Pregnancy symptoms: This week I noticed more sciatic pain/ hip discomfort. Even with my pregnancy pillow between my legs and supporting the rest of me, I'm noticing I'm more sore. Not too bad, but definitely noticed a difference this week. I had one night with a little heartburn, but it didn't seem to last, so I hope it doesn't get worse or more frequent. Other than that, feeling pretty well!
Best moment of this week: I've been planning the decor for both boys' rooms like a crazy women this week! Having WAY too much fun. :) Now if only I had endless amounts of cash to just go buy everything all at the same time! For now, it'll happen slowly but surely. So excited to see the rooms come together though!!! 
Miss anything: Naps. I've been really bad about napping for the last couple months. :/ I know, I know.... I'll regret it. I've just been trying to get a lot done, so I use Landon's nap times to accomplish things on my to-do list. But with not sleeping through the night well, I definitely need to be more disciplined again, and take naps more frequently. 
Movement: This little guy is a mover and groover for sure! I absolutely love feeling him wiggle around in my belly. That's always my favorite part of pregnancy, and I'll miss that a lot. So, I'm just soaking it all up while I can. :) 
Food cravings/aversions: Both cravings and aversion have been gone for a while now. Although...... (and I don't think I should blame it on "pregnancy craving") the other night I wanted chocolate SO badly. I was about to resort to eating a handful of chocolate chips I use for baking, but my hubby was feeling extra generous and went to the nearest store at 8:30 at night, so I could enjoy some delicious treats. What a guy! :) I have to admit,  when he asked me what I wanted, I gave 3 options and told him to surprise me. Well...... he came home with all THREE! He read my mind! Haha. But seriously, I was a happy lady. And no, I didn't eat them all in one night... but let's just say it didn't all last till day 3. :) 
Belly button in or out: My belly button didn't pop out with Landon, but it did get "even" with the rest of my growing belly, so I wonder what will happen this time, when I'm even further along. For now, it's in. 
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood: Happy, motivated and feeling blessed. I accomplished a lot at my house this week, and am getting the house more organized in preparation for little Greyson. Although, I definitely had some "cranky mama" moments this week too. It happens. :P

Upcoming appointments/events: I have an appointment on Friday. Excited to hear Grey's heartbeat again and see how he's "measuring up". :)
