24 Week Bumpdate #BabySkoDos

Twenty FOUR! Baby is the size of something slightly larger than she was last week. My phone is plugged into the wall, and getting up right now to check my app is not an option. More on that later....
Changes I've noticed:  Were those stretch marks on my thighs always there? Maybe they're new....maybe I need a tan? Not pregnancy related....but check out that mani!

How I've been feeling:  Just okay. I haven't been feeling great, but not horrible either. I'm in the home stretch as far as this school year being over...I can't totally blame my total exhaustion on growing this tiny human although it's certainly a factor. Ella has been really testing us lately too... this weekend I hope to get my mind right and rest up because I have been a little irritable, not going to lie! Oh right, getting up and down....bending over....it's all awful!

How I've been sleeping:  I've been having some bizarre dreams! I forgot about this lovely feature of pregnancy. VERY weird! 

Food and exercise:  Yippee, this has been a good week! I've been planning my meals a little better and providing myself better options for during the work day! I've also cut out my nightly iced tea...although now that I'm talking about it - I SO want one! I went a few days without stretching and definitely noticed the difference! I didn't need to be reminded of the importance, but I've been better about it the last few days! On May 30th, I'm getting back to business and coaching a challenge group! I've been out of the swing of things for a while now! With summer coming, I'm ready to commit to really make those changes on a more consistent basis! (If you're interested in joining the fun, let me know!)

Maternity clothes:  As much as I want to buy more work clothes (I'm getting sick of mixing up the same old stuff)...it's almost summer, and I should focus on maybe stocking up on a few more things for the horrible heat and humidity! I've been getting a taste of what's to come, it's not pleasant!

Movement:  She's been hanging out near my ribs on my right side a lot lately. It must be cozy over there!

Best moment this past week:   Ella referring to her Sissy by name...it's just adorable and makes it seem so much more REAL! Ella talks about her a lot actually!

Also, seeing Ella bonding with her Daddy is the best! The thought that soon there will be TWO little faces for him to look at like this....ahhhh I just can't handle it! Too sweet!
