24 weeks down, 16 to go!

Things are finally starting to settle down around here. We are unpacked except for 2 boxes, the pictures need to be hung up, Aubrey's room needs to be decorated and I want to start little miss Allyson's room soon.

How far along: 24 weeks

Next appointment: An appointment with the perinatologist on the 21st.

Any new aches/pains: My back has been hurting lately

Sleep: I'm really surprised at how well I have been able to sleep. I only wake up once to go pee at night. Ally gets all her moving around down before I go to bed so it works out perfectly.

Best moment this week: Conrad FINALLY FINALLY felt her kick for sure. She started kicking more to my right side and she gave a good kick and felt it.

Movement: She moves around like crazy throughout the day but after 7 or 8 ish is when she wakes up. Kicks and rolls for a good hour and then must be tired from all that moving goes back to sleep.

Food cravings: Pretty much just food in general. I've been getting so hungry late at night. Come 9PM I'm ready for a second dinner so I usually settle for a snack.

Belly Button: It's beginning to pop out :( I'm scared to see what it's going to look like in a few months.

What I’m looking forward to this week: We go to the perinatologist to have an ultrasound and we will get to see our little girl again. Can't wait to see how big she is.

Aubrey loves her little sister!
