I’m back with another weekly update! Here we are at 24 weeks, and my belly is large and in charge.I will note that Erik and I went out to lunch for chinese food right before this picture, so that might be why my belly is so big. But man I was tiny last pregnancy.
I have been feeling her move around a lot more, and this week for the first time Erik felt her move too! It is really crazy how the position of the placenta effects how much movement I feel. Liam gave me his wonderful cold this week, and I feel like poo. My head feels like it is in a vice! I have 24 week appointment this afternoon, maybe I will ask her if she can give me something to get rid of this cold.
I think I have to go in for my glucose test soon. I lied I just check my posts from last time and I didn’t go in for my glucose test until I was 28 weeks last time; so in a month. I also realized that I will be done with my second trimester in a month, now THAT is insane! At the rate my belly is growing I won’t be able to fit through doors by the time February rolls around.
Really really hard to believe she will be here in a little over 3 1/2 months! We really need to get our S together and set up Liam’s big boy room so we can move him out of the nursery and get it ready for her. I know we won’t be moving her into the room until she is around 2 months old but I can only imagine how hard life is going to be with a toddler and a newborn.
In the next few weeks I will be going through all of Liam’s old clothes and taking out things we can reuse for baby girl. I know that I will be able to use all of Liam’s white onesies, for weekly pictures and for undershirts! Oh I am going to have fun picking out girly fabrics for her weekly pictures. And no I have not started Liam’s quilt, I maaaaay just give the pieces I cut out to my friend or mother in law to see if either of them can put the quilt together.
Okay that is all I have for you all today!
