So yeah, I'm 24 weeks pregnant. Time has been moving quickly despite my general discomfort. My back is killing me 99% of the time. I'm generally pretty tired (whoever said you get all this energy during your second trimester was lying). And it's at 24 weeks that a baby is considered viable, or there is a possibility he will survive if you go into labor, so that's pretty cool.
I've been making more concrete plans for the nursery, which is super exciting. I've decided January will be "decorate the nursery" month for me. December has gone by quite quickly with going home and the holidays, February will go by quickly as I prepare for The Sailor to come home, but I feel like January is gonna drag by. More on that as I actually execute stuff. I'm still not sure whether I'll show off stuff as I get/make it or if I'm gonna wait until the whole thing is done and I can do a big reveal. We'll see! But to get you a little excited for it, here's some pictures I plan on having printed (not sure what size yet) and then frame them:
I also bought a used Fisher Price "Nature's Touch" Cradle 'n Swing this week. It's very exciting to see baby stuff in the general living space of my house. These things usually cost between $145 and $165...I got mine for $20! Bam!
Things to look forward to on the pregnancy/baby front:
- DIY Knit baby hat and booties (80% complete)
- DIY Knit Balloon Animal Frog (40% complete)
- Picking a stroller and car seat
- Plenty of cloth diaper excitement
- And of course, all things nursery related!
I have an OB appointment next week, so hopefully my next "weekly update" will be a little more informative/exciting, lol.
Until next time...
Is it just me, or has my belly growth kinda been at a standstill? There was a huge growth between 20 and 21 weeks (check that out here) but it really hasn't changed since then. And yes, I did forget to take a 23 week picture...
