22 and 24 weeks...

I've been a slacker with our chalkboard but the Simpsons have been crazy busy the last month. Our house is almost together...I just need help decorating now😊. 

  •  How far along: 24 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a: cantaloupe 10.5-11.8 in and 12.7-20.8 oz.! 
  • Total weight gain/loss: 5 lbs.! 
  • The Bump: pretty round and getting bigger everyday! 
  • Symptoms: a few Braxton hicks, swelling feet and hands, and my poor husband....I'm a little crazy emotionally wise. I cry over the silliest things. 
  • Food cravings: McChicken from McDonald's. I know terrible but seriously I want to eat one all the time. I don't though 😊 
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: nope, I've actually been feeling pretty great these days! 
  • Sleep: I sleep like a baby! 
  • What I miss: Nothing really.....besides my friends in Texas. 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: some days I can wear it other days my fingers swell. 
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: Charlie! We're still unsure on the middle name....
  • Gender: A girl! its been so fun saying SHE!
  • Movement: Charlie has been kicking up a storm! I'm loving it. When I lay down and put music up to my belly you can REALLY see her moving. It's been so fun to share this with Doug.  
  • Maternity Clothes: my shirts are starting to get a little short....I might need to invest in some more. My pants are still fitting pretty well especially since my sister let me borrow her maternity ban :) 
  • Labor Signs: N/A
  • Best Moment of the week: I was in the kitchen doing something and Doug and I were chit chatting and then randomly he says "I love your pregnant belly, you look so beautiful." He's the sweetest husband! 
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Bella feeling her sister kick and getting Charlie's nursery put together. Our little house needed so much work and moving into a smaller house has been hard with trying to find a place for everything so Charlie's room is 100% not done and its driving me crazy! We're tearing out the carpet in her room this weekend and putting new floor in because that room needs it! After that it should start coming together. 

  • I didn't know where my chalkboard was so I improvised :) 

    First belly picture in our house. Don't mind our floors...we just put them in our kitchen and just need to finish the trim then they'll look 100% better!
