24 Weeks



Weight Gain: +18 which is actually less than I had gained at this point last time (granted, I had a little extra to start with this time)
Maternity Clothes: Yep
Sleep: Can't get enough.
Stretch Marks: Not yet...
Highlight of the Week: Let's see...we went on a date to see Trans Siberian Orchestra for Jason's birthday, Sawyer got to sit on Santa's lap for the first time, and the holiday spirit is in full swing at our house! I love the holidays even more now that I have my own little (and growing!) family :)
Missing: Mobility, energy
Movement: Still lots! You can see him moving from the outside now.
Cravings: Same old, same old
Symptoms: Heartburn
Showing: Yes
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button: It's safe to say I have an outie now.
Wedding Rings: On
Most Looking Forward To: Christmas!
Milestones: It's kind of weird, but I'm happy to have reached 24 weeks because he has a better than 50% chance of surviving if he were born right now. But I hope he stays in at least 16 more weeks!

22 Weeks



Weight Gain: +16 (Yikes! Too much turkey!)
Maternity Clothes: Yep
Sleep: Not too bad. I usually wake up once to pee, but other than that it's pretty good.
Stretch Marks: Not yet...
Highlight of the Week: We had a great Thanksgiving and Sawyer started walking! We also went Black Friday shopping and got a lot of clothes for both boys at a great deal, which was awesome!
Missing: Being able to bend over comfortably. I feel like I am constantly picking up Sawyer's toys, crumbs, sippy cup, etc. off the floor and it is getting tough.
Movement: Tons! Jason was able to feel it for the first time about a week ago! Have I mentioned that I love feeling him move? ;)
Cravings: Milk! Just like last time...
Symptoms: Feeling like a stuffed sausage already and starting to get uncomfortable. Heartburn has begun too.
Showing: Yes
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button: A little of both. It's kind of like a crater with the inside being low and the edges being high.
Wedding Rings: On
Most Looking Forward To: Christmas!
Milestones: He weighs one whole pound now!
