24 Weeks

How far along: 24 weeks
Maternity clothes: Yes. I only have one pair of shorts that fit now. Bummer. 
Sleep: Still wake up to pee a lot, but it's fun to wake up and feel her move in the middle of the night. I'm tired. A. lot. 
Best moment of this week: Well, we were on vacation this week, so there were a lot of great moments. In regards to Ev, we registered at Target yesterday. Yay! Also, for the first time someone I didn't know told me congratulations, so I'm hopefully getting out of the 'maybe she is pregnant or maybe she ate too many donuts' phase. 
Miss anything: Not monitoring my caffeine intake. 
Movement: Yes. A lot. Justin's felt her move several times, and I can see my stomach move when she does. 
Gender: Still a girl.  
Labor signs: No 
Belly button in or out: In!
Wedding ring on or off: On. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I hope. 
Looking forward to: Being able to comfortably lay on my stomach and back again. 
Baby is the size of a: Ear of corn? About a pound and a half, apparently and around a foot long. So, really we should just call her a Subway footlong.  

Here she is in Charleston during our vacation. 

Here's Justin's food baby.

So, we're having a baby.

And, I've been (not-so-subtly) reminded by my dear, dear friends that I never update my blog, and now I have to. Well guys (girls), I haven't had anything to say. Now I do. Plus, my core 4 girls are ALL moving away within, like, 3 weeks of each other, so I have to keep them updated. While the likelihood of me doing this every week is slim, I'll try my best. I would love to read stuff like this from when my mom was pregnant with me or my bro. 

(And thanks, Jen, for making my life easy. I stole your questions.) 

How far along: 21 weeks
Maternity clothes: Some. A lot of dresses. My pants fit with the stretchy band thing, but dresses are more comfy. 
Sleep: I get up to pee 2-3 times per night, so that's exciting. I'm way better at sleeping right before my alarm goes off and during the day than I am at night. 
Best moment of this week: Buying a glider rocker for baby's room with my mom. I love starting her nursery stuff!
Miss anything: Not having to pay attention to my caffeine intake. 
Movement: Yes! I feel her for a little bit every day. Justin even got to feel her, which weren't expecting at all this early! He kept gasping every time she moved. It was presh. He then got his stethoscope out to try and hear her heartbeat. #mursehusband
Gender: She's a she! Evelyn Louise Morgan. Evelyn, because we like it. Louise, because it was my grandma's name. More on her later. 
Labor signs: Um, no. PTL. 
Belly button in or out: In. Also, PTL. 
Wedding rings on or off: On. 
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, I think. Maybe ask Justin.
Looking forward to: Working on her nursery!
Baby is the size of a: Carrot. Length, I think. However, Chelsea likes to relate her to processed food, so maybe a Twizzler? I don't know how long those are. She weighed 12oz at our appointment last week. How do they even know that?
Things I've asked other moms (including mine) recently: 
How(ish) old is a 35 pound child?
Is a nursing bustier for real?
Can I eat deli meat?
Can I eat canned tuna?
How much espresso is in that?
Can I get a massage?
Can I take a bath? (because you're not supposed to be in hot tubs, apparently.)
