24 Weeks (Round 2)

How far along? 24 weeks and 3 days

Total weight gain/loss?  Up 21.3 pounds.  So that's exactly 2 pounds gained in 7 days.  I don't care for this trend, but it appears to be what my body is doing so I'm not going to stress about it.

Maternity clothes?  Yes and yes.
Stretch marks? The old ones are definitely looking a little darker.  Or maybe they're new ones.  Hopefully not new ones.  Probably new ones.

Sleep? Good but I cannot get enough.  I fell asleep at 7:30 on Monday night and have been in bed well before 10pm most nights.  8-9 hours of sleep each night and I still feel like I could sleep some more.  I'm napping whenever I can.

Best moment last week?   Showing Lukas his new BIG BOY bed!

Movement?  All. The. Time.  I think he may have had the hiccups for the first time this week.

Food cravings? Red meat, plantain chips and Brussel sprouts.

Food aversions? Nope.

Gender? Boys have a penis.

Labor signs? Occasional Braxton Hicks contractions.

Belly button in/out? Half and half.

What I miss: Sleeping on my back.

What I am looking forward to: My big brother's visit this week!  And celebrating my daddy's 70th birthday!!!

Milestones: We've reached viability!  If Baby Swan #2 were to be born today he'd have a chance at survival.  We're hoping he stays in for at least another 15 weeks, but I did breathe a very small sigh of relief when I read that 24 weeks = viability!
