24 week update

Hey guess what? Time flies when your pregnant. Not really, but it does seem hard to believe that I'm already 6 months along. I don't have any pictures to post, I'll have to have my sister Francie take a few for me this weekend. She is such a good picture taker she might be able to work some magic for me. Here's a few milestones to remember for month 6.
  • I can no longer wear any of my pre-pregnancy pants anymore. Except scrubs. I'm so glad I get to wear scrubs to work. As much as I love to shop, I haven't been that interested in buying clothes that are only wearable for a few months. It just seems like such a waste of money. So if you see me wearing the same things over and over, that's why.
  • It's nearly impossible to sleep on my stomach, which is really annoying since that is my preferred position of sleep. I still try, but it's just not that comfortable anymore.
  • My stomach has grown 7 inches in 6 months, and I've gained 15lbs. (4 pounds ahead of the schedule I set for myself when I first got pregnant) Oh well, I look at it the way I did the marathon I ran. I didn't care how long it took me, I just wanted to finish and say I ran the whole 26.2 miles. Then if I ever run another one I can try for a good finishing time.

Thanks to everyone who voted for the baby bedding options. Unfortunately there isn't much of a stand out winner. I'll leave it up for a bit longer, and maybe that will change. My MIL has a determined cousin who still thinks she can find the PBK tractor bedding that is no longer available. She's been calling around to all the PBK outlet stores and checking to see if they get any in. I'm doubtful she'll find it, but it would be my first choice if it were available, so keep looking Sandy, I'm holding out for a while to make a choice in case you find one.

I'm working on a list of names, maybe that will be my next poll. It's very hard to pick a boy name. We had both agreed on a girl name, well sort of, I liked Isabel and Todd liked Isabella. But for the most part we agreed. Now that we know it's a boy we can't seem to come up with something we both really like. Good thing we still have a few months to figure that one out.

The PBK tractor was my first pick also. I hope your extended family member is able to locate one for you. I'll keep my eyes and ears open too. You know how I can be when I am on a mission.
Dont be unrealistic about weight gain and inches. Enjoy the not-so-often chance of being able to indulge. I sure did! Not sure if it was the youthful age that was on my side when it came to shedding the 50lbs I gained or if it was genetics. For your sake... I hope it was genetics.

PS: I hope you dont think that I was trying to say you are old. HA! (I'm really not).

I did think you were calling me old? Glad you clarified. I'll let it slide since you are older than me.
