24 Weeks!

So here we are- 24 weeks! I know I say this every time, but seriously this is going by SO fast!I can't believe that baby is going to be here SO fast! I am SO excited!!! It is SO much fun going shopping for baby and imagining him wearing all these cute outfits! Here are some fabulous pictures of the big baby I will be having before I know it!






Can I just say how much I miss laying on my stomach! I seriously HATE not being able to climb up on my bed and lay on my stomach! That is one thing I will be looking forward to when baby is here. This month I have had some pretty awesome leg cramps in the middle of the night. It's really fun when I wake up screaming and Andrew freaks out and has to rub my legs til they stop- he's so sweet! The more water I drink the less cramps I get- and, if I eat a banana every few days that helps too cause I think I am low on potassium like every other woman in my family. All my aunts, grandma and mom take potassium pills. I have a Dr appointment on Monday so I am going to talk to my cute Dr. That's all for now! LOVE YOU!

P.S.- My uterus is the size of a Soccer Ball and yours is only the size of an Orange!

OH my heck! Could you be any cuter? I love your tummy!
I HATED not sleeping on my belly too. Just wait, it is even more amazing after a few more months of not getting to sleep like that! :O)

I got the leg cramps too... They are so horrible!! Your right to drink lots of water!! I liked to take warm baths at night to help sooth my legs.

I am so excited for you! You are the cutest pregnant girl ever! :)

oh, he is just coming right along isn't he?!

I got cramps too! I would jump out of bed in the middle of the night and I'm pretty sure Taylor thought I was going into labor every time.

So just an FYI, plan on NOT laying on your stomach right after the baby is born, especially if you plan on nursing. Those feed bags take a couple of months to settle down to the point where you can actually put pressure on them without leaking EVERYWHERE!

I had those awesome leg cramps too. The first time it happened to me, i woke up screaming just like you did. I then jumped out of bed thinking I would run around to Chase's side of the bed so that he could rub it for me, you know, I was too large to bend over and do it myself. (Oh the joys of being pregnant!) Don't ask me why I thought that was going to work. I'll blame it on my "pregnant brain" and the fact that it was the middle of the night and I was a little out of it. Well, I dropped to the ground, still screaming mind you. Apparently it's not possible to stand when you have a charlie horse of that magnitude in your calf. Chase freaked out. He thought I was dying on the floor or something. I guess I was a little dramatic about it. We still laugh about it and are reminded of it every time anyone gets a cramp anywhere.
