24 Weeks

How far along: 24 Weeks
Total weight gain: 17 lbs.  That's almost triple what I gained last time at this point! To be fair to myself, I am about the same weight now as I was last time around too. After I had McKinlee I lost a lot of weight and was even smaller than I was at my wedding. I tried eating healthy, I ate junk food, nothing really affected my weight and I was totally ok with that! I have a feeling that won't be the case after #2. I'm already getting nervous about getting back in shape.
Maternity clothes: Still in regular jeans with my belly bands and lots of leggings since we've been home. I love being pregnant in the winter!
Best moment this week: Coming home!! It was so nice to see Stafford at the airport and remember that I have someone to help me with everything. Our time apart always makes me realize how grateful I am for him and the role he plays in our marriage and family.
Miss anything: Sleep! I have not slept well the past few nights, and I am tired! I think I'm ready to pull out the body pillow. 
Movement: This baby likes to move! The kicks are getting more and more powerful and I love it. Her heart beat is in the 130's and our Dr. said that's perfectly normal.
Food cravings: Strawberries! -Covered in chocolate obviously. I wish it was summer. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.
Have you started to show: :) yes.
Gender: Girl!
Belly button in or out: In, but pretty shallow.
Wedding ring on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: So so happy!
Looking forward to: Getting back to normal.. We've been away from home so long and Stafford has been out of school for over a month! I'm ready to get back into our routine and start the potty training process...... woo hoo! Any tips?
