.:23 & 24 Weeks:.

I missed last week because I was in Oregon, so we'll combine the two weeks. I feel gigantic. I feel like my belly is growing like crazy lately. I must be carrying high because I am starting to get some pain in my ribs, and feel really short of breath often. I'm not quite sure how I'm supposed to continue getting bigger if I'm already feeling this way! This little guy continues to be so super active. I love feeling him from the outside, and also love to just watch him bounce around. Lately it seems like he favors somersaults! The girls are still so excited for their little brother, and Remi has started getting in on the tummy kissing action. I'm really really excited to have a baby again, and often wish that time would just hurry up so he can be here. But at the same time, I really want to try and enjoy this last pregnancy. I know there are for sure things that I will miss.

Another week, come and gone. I feel like this little baby never stops moving. Even when I think I haven't felt him move for awhile, within five minutes I will usually feel him. I don't remember any of the girls being this active. I don't know what his plans are for when he is not in there anymore, but I hope it includes some sleeping sometimes! Not that I'm complaining, though; I love it. Reece felt him move for the first time this week. She loved it. Still feeling pretty good, though I'm really starting to notice a decrease in what my body can handle exercise wise. It is frustrating to lose what I worked so hard for, but of course totally worth it. I was just hoping to hang on to it for awhile longer before I had to tone it down a bit. I'm definitely grateful to still be able to exercise though, and have been making sure to do it every day during the week. I think it's helped with my mood a lot. I've started working on some sewing projects for him, which is fun. So excited to meet this little guy! We really need to start thinking about a name....

Over halfway. It feels great to say that. Every time I am around a baby, it just makes me that much more excited to get this little guy here. But that being said, I can't complain too much. I've been feeling pretty good lately. Even with my congestion and allergies, I've managed to get some decent sleep this week and I think it has helped a lot. My hips are starting to hurt, and I think my feet are getting bigger because they often hurt while exercising, but what do you do? This little baby is sure busy in there. I've finally been able to feel him from the outside a few times. I'm hoping the girls will get to feel it soon. I know they are going to love it. And good news: Diet Coke doesn't taste bad to me anymore!
