Baby Barrett 24 Weeks

How Far Along: 24 Weeks

Size of the baby: Baby Barrett is now the size of an eggplant, approx..9 inches long & approx 1.7lbs.

Total Weight Gain/loss: I have gained 10lbs (as of my last doctors appointment, I don't really want to get on the scale at home).  My belly is  growing everyday.  I swear when I wake up the morning it has grown overnight.

Maternity Clothes:  I can still wear some of my longer shirts, but most of my pants are now maternity or stretchy yoga pants.  However, I have found that now that my belly is bigger I can use the belly band to hold up some of my non maternity pants, yay for more wardrobe options =).  I am still totally in LOVE with leggings and sweaters. 

Gender: SURPRISE!! We are not going to find out till Baby Barrett arrives in May!  We have lots of guessing going on in the family, right now we are pretty split.

Movement: Definitely have been feeling movement.  Baby B is moving all day long now.  It is such an amazing feeling to feel baby flipping and kicking all day long.  Hubs loves to feel Baby B move.  First thing he does in the morning is roll over and poke at my stomach until Baby B kicks his hand.  I would be mad because usually I am still trying to sleep but he starts laughing so much I don't have the heart to be upset =)

Sleep: Sleeping horribly.  I cannot remember the last time I got a good night's sleep.  I finally gave in and had hubs purchase a pregnancy body pillow.  I can't wait to try it out tonight.  Here's to hoping for a great nights sleep!  

What I miss: Not having smells literally have me running for the bathroom.  Not getting heartburn.  Not having my back throb =(

Cravings: Ummm... nothing in particular this week.

Symptoms: Lower back pain.  All the sudden I have terrible lower back pain that will not go away regardless of what I do.

Best moment this week: Spending a Superbowl Sunday surrounded by my family.  It was a perfect day!

I loved my body pillow although my hubby didn't. Also try a heating pad on your back. Looking good.
