Baby Two: 24 Weeks Pregnant

24 weeks pregnant
Please excuse my end of day, make-up basically worn off, hair a mess appearance. 😉

Baby Lamotta is due September 28th, 2017!

Today is 6/8/17 which means I’m 24 weeks.

Baby is the size of a GI Joe.

I’ve gained… Good question. 

Midwife appointment this week? Nope – next week though!

Current mood: A bit relieved that I survived another milestone without my mom. Yesterday was her birthday so I bought sunflowers (her favorite) and we bought a watermelon cake (it was vanilla but looked like a watermelon). I miss her more than I can say. 

Cravings: Carrot cake & banana bread still. I bought some carrot cake along with the cake for my mom last night. 

Food Aversions: Pizza is still an iffy thing for me. 

The yucky stuff:

Currently rocking: Maternity clothes all the way. I’m wearing a dress from when I was pregnant with Jude today. It’s funny because someone at Jude’s daycare asked me how I have so many maternity clothes and I shamelessly plugged Le Tote because without them, I’d have nothing to wear. I’m trying to make my regular subscription last as long as possible before I give in and get the maternity. I’ve been renting anything super loose in the belly and cute skinny belts to cinch my waist. 

The best thing about pregnancy this week? I actually forget sometimes that I’m pregnant until baby girl starts tapping away at my bladder. 

What’s different about baby #2 than with Jude’s pregnancy? Homegirl is still way low. 

I’m nervous about: Packing for Barcelona/Lisbon and getting everything done in time!

Other thoughts: I miss being able to wake up and function without a cup of coffee!
