24 Weeks - Cantelope

I'm really good at mixing up cantelopes and honeydews. I can never remember which one is which and I've been known to call them by the wrong name in professional company. I like the green one better. Whichever that is.

How far along: 24 weeks - technically this is Viability Week - the week where a baby born at this point has a chance surviving outside of the womb.

Total weight gain: Depends on the day and the water weight. 15ish pounds.

Stretch marks: I'm pretty sure they're starting to appear - but not on my belly, on my butt. Thanks, running.

Sleep: Still feeling icky, waking up in the middle of the night with a nose full of snot is rather unpleasant. So, no.

Exercise: Running, P90X, Kettlebells, yoga. Mini redemption run on Saturday!

Movement: All night long. I think she's gone from breech to head-down and back to breech again. It's hard to discern what parts are doing the poking. Charlie is super excited about his sister, but has pretty much zero interest in feeling her kicking at him. I don't blame him, given his level of understanding about how she got there and how she'll get out.

Food cravings: The chocolate craving has finally kicked in.

Happy or moody most of the time: Doing my best to keep the anxiety at bay.

Looking forward to: Organizing things in drawers and closets. I also found a pattern for a ring sling that I'm planning to try, so I'm pretty excited about that.


  1. Hooray!  Can't believe you're 24 weeks!  =)

  2. I think the green ones are honeydews.  I don't care for either one.  Watermelon is the only melon on my list.  I don't suspect they have watermelon on your progress list.  I guess it could be toward the end.
