24 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have a doctors appointment tomorrow so i will find out then

Maternity Clothes: pants, tight maternity tops and elastic bottom non-maternity tops

Gender: it’s a girl! Lucy Anne

Movement: yes lot of flipping and swift kicks to the bladder

Sleep: it is hard, I am a back/tummy sleeper so it will only get better once she is born and I can sleep the way I was again … it would also be a bit easier if my “alarm clock” didn’t go off at 5:30am everyday…oy

What I miss: cookie dough which was quickly remedied by making some cookie dough truffles MmmMmm

Cravings: fruit bars (strawberry and pineapple), cereals, and candy

Best Moment this week: Getting Lucy’s room all cleaned out, new clothes washed and hung up, and Liam saying “Lucy” for the first time clear as day…so cute!

I posted last week that I was going to a specialist to have a fetal echocardiogram per my high risk doctors request and I am so happy to say that everything looked perfect. Modern medicine is amazing, i can’t believe how much we were able to see! My Mom drove me down to Allentown for the appointment and we got to meet up with my Aunt and Grandmother who live down that ways. It was so good to see them and catch up. We had a really nice day. And thank you to my mother in law who watched Liam for the day, he had a blast as well.

Lucy’s crib arrived this week!!! Yay!! Thanks Mom and Dad for buying Lucy her crib :-)  IMG_5392

My Mom and I cleared our Lucy’s room last week. It was the “catch all” room for A LOT of boxes—like you could not even walk into the room stuffed with boxes and now it is just baby stuff, yay!!  IMG_5393

We purchases this piece a few weeks ago at an estate sale and I am just loving it.


It is sanded right now and ready to be primed and painted Behr’s “poetic princess”.


Aren’t those little drawers just perfect for all of the stuff little girls come along with! I think it will be perfect in her room. Ya know… like these…we are building quite the stash of headbands, flowers, and bows…and yes it is modeled on the back of a stuffed penguin.

I can't believe you are already more than halfway through the pregnancy! Lucy will be here in no time :)

Some of Cati's headbands are on stuffed animals as well, ha ha.
