Bump Update: 24 Weeks

How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Weighed myself yesterday and was +10. I feel huge. Every week I almost stop these pictures, I swear! The baby is over 1.5 pounds now. He's gaining and growing like crazy, so you know I am!
Maternity clothes? I wore my Citizens Maternity Jeans for the first time this week to dinner. Let me tell you how comfortable those things are.....LOVE.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: I sleep great but it is getting harder to situate myself. Turning and switching positions, getting out of bed is no longer simple.
Best moment this week: So many great moments this week! I celebrated my birthday with everyone I love. Celebrated my sweet friends engagement party. AND, got to meet my brand new niece just over an hour old on Sunday night. It makes me 100 times more excited for our little boy!
Miss Anything? Went with y'alls tips last week and used some self tanner. It did boost my spirits a little bit! I realized Monday I miss my energy- I used to be tireless and now projects lie around the house unfinished and cluttered.
Movement: Little man is a mover.
Food cravings: Other than eating a ridiculous amount of cake, cupcakes, etc for my birthday celebrations, no huge cravings. I ordered a fruit cup with my sandwich from Chic-fil-A the other day and it was phenomenal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Indigestion holding strong...
Have you started to show yet: Yes, that is a baby not a large lunch.
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In. By the way, I have the worlds smallest belly button! Not sure whats going to happen here.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Early last week there were a few tough days when I didn't feel well and experienced what I think was round ligament pain. No bueno.
Looking forward to: A weekend at home where we can get some things done around here! I want to get moving on the nursery!

Lots and lots of moments from this week...

{Let's discuss how excited I was when my gem of a husband brought this home after work. Close enough to the real thing to make me feel special!}

{Before going out for a birthday dinner!}

 {Visiting with some of my favorite girls...Ashley on the left is holding her sweet Phoebe and I am holding her newborn Rosemary who conked out on my lap! So sweet. Seldon to my left and her sister Hannah as well. Loved catching up!}

{Hello baby! Dress is Lilly Pulitzer with a waistband that can be tied to fit. I hope I can wear this in January for a shower! If not, it will be worn plenty after the baby is born}

 {With the engaged Seldon! A loyal reader and BFF}

 {With the hubs!}

I had an amazing birthday and enjoyed the weekend celebrating friends and newborns so much. It was a very special weekend!

Thanks for reading y'all.
