Baby stuff!

Today there was a sidewalk sale on a street nearby that is lined with little boutiques. One of the stores is a baby boutique that has beautiful things. I scored some GREAT deals there today!

Three soft, large blankets...$10 for all three!

I have been drooling over this little knitted hat every time I go in the store. I got it for FREE in the buy 2, get 1 free sale!

I absolutely love this little outfit! If we don't have a boy, I'm sure I'll find someone to give it to, but I couldn't resist buying it!

A closeup of the giraffe. It's made of really soft material and has little brown fringe. SO CUTE!

Last but not least, a couple of week 25 belly shots.

24 Weeks...Viability!

Today is a big day - 24 weeks! If the baby were born now, there is a good chance that s/he would make it. I want it to stay in for MUCH longer, but it's comforting to know that if something were to happen, s/he could survive.

I had my 24 week OB appointment on Monday. Everything looks good except the fact that I gained WAY too much weight last month! The doctor said I should be gaining 2-3 lbs. max each month and I gained 7! Oops. Well, Christmas, New Year's, plus a growth spurt by the baby are my excuses. I actually look pretty much the same all over, except for my belly, which has really grown!

A couple of nights ago, Mr. C rolled over and put his hand on my bum. After a few minutes he said, "Is the baby moving? I can't feel anything." I said, "That's my bottom, not my belly!!!" It was SO funny...we couldn't stop laughing. I guess my body is really changing if he can't tell the difference between my bum and my tum!

The only negative so far is that I started getting charlie horses this past week. If you've never had one, be glad! They are excrutiatingly painful leg cramps where your calf tenses up and becomes rock hard. It only lasts 20-30 seconds, but it hurts SOOOO bad. My calves are sore for days afterward like I've done a crazy workout. The doctor said to increase my fluids and potassium, so hopefully that will help. Other than that, I feel great!

24 weeks in the yellow room, aka nursery.

Happy 2010!

Happy New Year! I can't believe the year of my baby's birth is finally here! 2009 had a lot of ups and downs and I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store. It's going to be an amazing year!
