24 weeks

How far along?  24 weeks
Baby Size: weighs over a pound & about the length of an ear of corn
Gender: BOY
Name: not telling :) but it's a good one!
Total weight gain/loss: from where i started... i lost 12 with all the sickness & now have gained back 14. so total gain of 2
Maternity clothes?  Ha! Not really. i did purchase a pair of long jeans from mommylonglegs.com... those should be coming in the mail today so praying that they fit & that help make some of my other clothes work a little better... really, i just have no clothes.
Stretch marks? Didn't get any with Joshua until the last few weeks & those have pretty much faded away. hoping the same thing will happen this time!
Sleep:  i just flip over a lot... and get freaked out that i'm lying on my back too much. i'm just pretty tired at the end of each day so sleep is welcome even if it is interrupted by the flipping side to side.
Best moment this week: getting to see him again! i had to go back for another ultrasound because they didn't get good enough views of his spine & heart last time. good news is they got all the images that wanted & he looks great {even measuring a little big}, bad news is that he wasn't really moving and not in a great position to see his face or anything. he's a stubborn one ;)
Miss Anything?  just being able to lay on my back while sleeping...
Food cravings: well throughout this whole pregnancy {even while really sick} caesar salad has sounded wonderful. otherwise now that i'm finally eating, i just want to eat everything!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  not really... eggs still don't sound good but nothing crazy.
Have you started to show yet:  in the past week or so i've really started showing. good for me, not so good for my lack of winter pregnancy clothes :)
Labor Signs: surprisingly yes... i think. i really didn't have any braxton hicks with Joshua and i think i'm already having some starting a few days ago.
Other symptoms: got some heartburn for the first time over the weekend. yuck. and the sciatica is pretty bad most days. boo.
Belly Button in or out? In, but funny how long it took to go out last time & how quickly i can see it popping out already.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time:  Happy :) just tired at the end of the day & easily annoyed. 
Looking forward to: getting my maternity jeans! 

hey baby #2, 
i hope you are doing well in there. out here it's cold & snowy & my belly is getting bigger each day. your older brother now says "baby" and i think he knows that you are located in my stomach. you are kicking me like crazy anytime i stop to take a breath & notice. so i just assume you're kicking all the time :) daddy is the only one who's felt you move besides me. this weekend we helped Kma & Opa move to Monument. it will be so great to have them close when you are born! because you were so stubborn during your ultrasound i barely got to see you & don't really have any good pictures of you. so i'm getting very curious about what you are going to look like... and wondering what the color of your hair might be... only 16 more weeks until we get to see your cute little face. 
i can't wait! 
love you already more than you, 
your momma, daddy & big brother Joshua
