First, let's start with some non pregnancy related things. I have finally figured out that 3rd grade is different than 4th grade. The biggest difference? The boys cannot keep their hands to themselves!!!!!! I know they are boys, but seriously, can't we walk down the hall once without someone stepping on the back of someone else's shoes or poking them.
The Broncos can't seem to pull it together the last few games. I will not abandon my team, but it may be a very long season. I think the real reason they are losing is because I don't have a Bronco shirt that fits my over my growing belly. Feel free, fellow Denver fans to fix this problem! ;)
The Tuesday evening bible study that I lead started back up last Tuesday. We are doing Beth Moore's James: Mercy Triumphs study. So far it is awesome. The most intimidating thing about it is that the study has 120+ women in it, and I am in charge. Yikes! God has been so great walking beside my in tackling this study. He has blessed me with an awesome support system through our women's ministry and wonderful women to lead table groups. I think God has some big plans in store for all of us and I know that He is already shaking up a few things in my life just in this first week. I love the truth and depth to Beth Moore's studies.
I got an iphone 5. Why you might ask, because my husband ordered it for me! Now he is jealous and wants one of his own. He tried to take mine and leave me cell phoneless, but that didn't work out, so he now has to wait until October.
Now on to all things baby! I know we want little Audrey to wait to make her arrival, but we have 3 of the essentials now. Carseat, stroller, and pack and play (her nursery for now). Our tiny house is slowly being taken over by baby stuff. I can't imagine what it is going to be like after showers. I better come up with an organization/storage system soon!
How far along? 24 Weeks
Size of baby? Ear of Corn- she gained about 4 oz this last week--that would explain my need to eat more often!
Total weight gain? Holding steady at 12 pounds
Maternity Clothes? Maternity pants for sure, some tops, but a lot of my "old" stretchy, loose dresses and tops. Occasionally I try to squeeze into some normal tops, but I am finding them too short and tight.
Sleep? Still can't complain, other than the massive leg cramp that happened (Luckily only once so far!)
Best moment of the week? Still loving feeling Audrey move more and more. Her movements are getting stronger! Hearing her heartbeat at the Dr. on Wednesday. She is holding strong at 150bpm and loves camping out on my lower right side. Also, yesterday when Stinson began singing about Christmas coming and then about how Audrey will be here after Christmas all while unloading the dishwasher.
Miss anything? Bending over with ease. Shoes that fit without squeezing my feet.
Movement? Yes! I think Stinson will be able to feel her this week. I think he could have the other night, but he was sleeping, so he didn't want to move to see.
Cravings? Nothing major. Last week I was dying for some chips and salsa, so of course I bought some!
Symptoms? Leg cramps- only once, heartburn has become a frequent visitor lately/
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? Thick band on, diamond off (it's too tight :( )
Mood? Mostly normal, but cranky and grumpy watching the Broncos play the Texans yesterday. Payton better pull it together or this pregnant lady might come unglued!
Looking forward to? Getting my new car next weekend!
