wow. have had so much happen this weekend already…. will have to write more today/tomorrow. but i wanted you to get a good view of me at 24 weeks in my pregnancy. this photo was taken on saturday after my LONG night’s adventure at a 20-0hour benefit crop. it was hard to smile "for real" becuase i was so tired!
Me at 24 weeks:
i am definitely getting bigger. i feel the baby move almost every day – still usually at night when i’m lying in bed. the movements are getting stronger. i’m consuming all food in sight. it appears that if there’s food (and i like it), i’ll eat it. sheesh – this is one hungry baby! i still sleep well and for about 8 hours a night. when i move from my back to my side or vice versa, baby starts moving around like crazy – guess Seven doesn’t like getting "squished!" i have back pain most of the time and i’m sure that’ll only get worse as my belly continues to grow. when my back is really sore (like on saturday), i tend to "waddle" more than "walk" so we’ll see if i can get that under control!! sleeping on a camping mat on the floor of a church for 5-1/2 hours is NOT a good idea when you’re 6 months pregnant! (but i got a lot accomplished at the crop, so it was worth it). dave has felt the baby move a few more times. can’t wait ’til he can feel the new movements – feels kinda like the baby is "rolling" over or around (maybe doing flips?). with the nicer weather outside, i’m trying to go for a walk after work. gotta be somewhat healthy for this baby, right?!
okay – off to church. more later about the weekend. love ya’ll!
