How far along: 24 weeks!
Size of baby: An ear of corn or a cantaloupe depending on which website you look at.
Movement: All the time and I love it!
What I miss: Well since it is New Year's Eve I am missing some glorious champagne. Or wine. Or shots. Whatever.
Cravings: My sweet tooth has been out of control! I'm hoping it's just Christmas and all the yummy treats that have been laying around.
Best moment this past week: Being with our families for Christmas. It always goes by so fast! We also made some nursery progress and the whole room is now empty and ready for paint. We built his little closet and I'll post a pic below.
Symptoms: My right hand keeps going numb. I talked to the doctor today and she said it was normal, just related to swelling or baby laying on certain nerves. She said it will probably get worse.
What I'm looking forward to: Our babymoon next week! Holy cow so soon!
Milestones: His nostrils are opening up (they have been plugged!) and his lungs are developing further. His skin is also becoming pinker, but it's still translucent.
Mood: happy and overwhelmingly blessed! ready for 2013!
Labor Signs: negative
And after! We got the shelves at Home Depot and the blue baskets at The Container Store. I had looked for a while and these were perfect! Since his room is mostly gray and yellow with a little blue I wanted to tie more blue into the closet. I love how it turned out! (Shout out to my stepdad Bobby who built this! Don't know where I would be without all the handy men in my life!)
