Six months!!

 April 21, 2010
April 21 marks another milestone…six months! Twenty-four weeks later and I’m starting to feel like this journey is going to be over before I know it. As the days and weeks fly by, we’re four short months away from meeting Little Boy Leger! While time feels like it will be moving at warped speed, time seems to have stopped when you think about the clothes you’ll wear to cover this growing belly. With four months to go, I’m about to take the plunge into maternity pants. I’ve dipped my toes into the shirts, but haven’t spent a lot of time or money on anything maternity. I took the first big step by looking online today. No purchases were made, but items were saved for later. Instead of buying pants tonight, I’m spending my money on some baskets for an awesome project my husband just completed. 
Twenty-four weeks, two days - April 22
Fun facts about our six month mark:
  • Belly button: flat. Yes, that is possible.
  • Weight gain: 15 lbs.
  • Swelling: my feet swelled and then stopped swelling.
  • Stretch marks: none. Yippee!
  • Movements: still very active, but no sudden movements after loud noises – he must be used to the beagle. One noticeable position change that altered the nice round shape to my belly. Grandma and dad got to feel some pretty good kicks this week while attending a wedding.
  • True to boy form, I’m carrying this little guy low.
  • Sleep: going well but I do wake up every time I change sides. I only wake up because it requires the stars to be aligned in order to transition the body from one side to the other.
  • Energy level: the same (so much better than the first trimester!)
  • Cravings: not much but I have had some unhealthy thoughts about pop. Pretty much along the lines of how delicious a Mt. Dew would taste or the feeling of popping the top of a can. Trust me, popping the top of a SevenUp is meaningless.
  • Heartburn: Ick! Please go away as quietly as you snuck up on me.
