How far along: 24 weeks! Officially VIABLE!
Maternity clothes: Oh yes! Even though they're not very flattering on me, I LOVE my maternity leggings!
Stretch marks: Not yet, still using Bio-Oil and Mustela cream daily
Sleep: Sleep has been better this week
Best moment of the week: Reaching viability! When I found out I was pregnant I calculated when I would be 24 weeks along. Even though I pray she stays in there for at least another 14 weeks, it's nice to know if she were born today she would have a fighting chance at survival! Especially at the amazing hospital I work for, Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies. I'll stick to what I know as a labor and delivery nurse, but those NICU nurses are angels taking care of God's more precious, tiny gifts.
Worst moment of the week: Morning sickness reared its ugly head randomly one morning before work. Mid-breakfast everything came back up....not fun
Running/Workouts: I swear my workouts are bipolar. They sure aren't getting any easier, but I was able to run 5 miles twice this week, the most I've done in a long time
Missing anything: Nope
Movement: Yes! Still just at night, but one night in particular she was super active! Loving every moment of it!
Cravings: Salads and Blue Poweraid Zero
Energy level: Hit or miss, overall feeling pretty good
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding ring on or off: On
Looking forward to: Getting the nursery put together! The painting is done, including the cloud mural on the ceiling!
Something surprising about being pregnant: I must say I'm a little surprised how fast it's starting to go by. Not telling anyone until 12 weeks was the longest 12 weeks of my life. Since then, the weeks seems to be flying by! While being pregnant hasn't been super easy, I admit I will miss having this little person inside of me once she's born
