Baby #2: 24 Weeks

No outside picture this week due to the massive black widow (seriously the size of a quarter!) we found on our back porch. I have to go through there to get to the back where I normally do my pictures and I refused after seeing that thing. I'm going to give the poison a few days to work and then I'll think about it...

How Far Along: 24 Weeks

Size of baby: Why does everything I read give a different size? I guess she's somewhere between the length of an ear of a corn and an eggplant.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +15 pounds...Perhaps Jesse's yummy ice cream birthday cake has something to do with the 1.5 gain this week! ;)

Maternity Clothes: Pretty much exclusively except for a few things here and there (And now that I think about it, the outfit in my picture this week is 100 percent non-maternity.)

Gender: A baby girl, Adelyn Elise

Movement: Yes! She's jumping around in there like crazy. 

Symptoms: I'm still having pretty bad hip pain but I am trying not to let it slow me down. I had one day this week where my hips were killing me and I was just not feeling well overall so I stopped my workout halfway through. I'm really trying to listen to my body when it comes to working out and everything else.

Sleep:  It's been really good this week. I am so tired by around 9:30 that I usually have no trouble at all falling asleep.

What I miss: I'd love a pumpkin beer or a glass of wine

Cravings: Cereal (dry) and chocolate. I'm not usually a big chocolate eater but I have definitely been craving it this week.

Best Moment This Week: I had a good doctor's appointment today. Everything is going well and I am measuring right on track. I can't ask for anything better than that! I also made my first visit to Buy Buy Baby. It's an hour away so I wanted to check out it while I was close by. I was not prepared for how big it is! I loved looking and around and testing out some strollers but I didn't actually buy anything. I'm still trying to inventory all of the stuff we already have and then I'll decide if we really need anything else.

Shopping: I bought what I think is going to be Adelyn's coming home outfit. Now I just need to add a little monogram and it will be ready to go! It's very simple but I just love it!

You are such a cute preggo! I had bad hip pain too - a lot of stretching helped me... I'm sorry though, it's no fun :( and ewwww about the spider! That would freak me out!

Ugh I had hip/back pain with Nolan and it was no fun! But you are still looking so adorable!
