Nora Kay Love ~ 24 Weeks

I actually had a cute pregnant day today...I've been a little rough on myself recently, but I was feeling extra cute this morning...which always makes for better pictures.  Maybe it's the black non-maternity maxi from Target...I may wear it every. single. day for the rest of my pregnancy!  ha! 

How far along: 24 weeks
How big is baby: Corn, 1.25 lb
Gender: My sweet baby girl, Nora Kay!

Weight gain/loss: This is a permanently removed subject in regards to specifics; however, last week I ate MUCH better and while I'm not trying to diet and be pregnant at the same time...I am using MyFitnessPal again just to monitor my calorie and nutrition intake.  The weekend was pretty much awful as far as food was concerned...but hey, I'm pregnant right?  I get a little bit of a pass! 
Sleep: I'm sleeping fairly well...but the last several nights I've been waking up SUPER HOT!  And then it takes me a bit to cool down and go back to sleep.  Of course there are also the middle of the night potty breaks which are always exciting!  ha! 

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Still nothing.  I'm still loving all the fresh summer fruit which I'm enjoying over Greek yogurt for breakfast and also as a sweet snack with maybe a small scoop of ice cream. 

Movement: We've got another dancer on our hands!  She actually seems to move the most either right before I go to sleep or right after I wake up in the morning.  Hubby finally was patient enough to feel her move a bit and I can't wait until Elyse can feel her move in my tummy! 

What I'm loving: All the nursery prep!  My mom has a big start on the nursery bedding, we have a painter lined up for the first part of September, the rocker-recliner (x2) will be ordered this week, and now I'm starting to think about all the details!  I'm so excited for it to all come together! 

Symptoms: She's definitely created a nice round belly for me!  I get lots of "you look so cute" comments...which helps a LOT.  My left ankle tends to swell the most after being at work on Monday & Tuesday; probably something to do with sitting in a chair for the majority of the day at a desk. 
What I'm looking forward to: A slower schedule...I hope.  We've been going kind of crazy the last few weeks so I'm hoping that with the arrival of Fall comes a little bit of a slower schedule.  Of course that could definitely be wishful thinking!   
Best moment of the week: So is it bad that I looked forward to a couple of homemade chocolate chip cookies and a small glass of milk every night last week?!?  Thankfully there are only two small ones left and it's up to Hubby to eat those.  I'm not thinking I'll be making those again anytime soon...or at least not until after my glucose test in a month or so!

You are so adorable I could die! That dress is so sweet! (I totally need one!) How the hell can you be rough on yourself? You look great!

P.S. I went for 4 walks last week and ate a cookie immediately after every one. Pointless? I think so. Haha!
