24 Weeks

24 weeks! I can't get over it. Time is whizzing by right before our eyes.

I still feel really good and have great energy now that a friend introduced me to the Boppy Total Body Pillow. Josh calls this weird-looking pillow my inch worm. Always a stomach sleeper, the transition to sleeping on my side has been challenging. Thanks to this pillow, I am sleeping pretty darn good.

Ella Baisden moves ALL THE TIME. I feel her probably 4-5 times a day. Her movements have grown from bubbly flutters to hard kicks in just a matter of weeks. The other day on my way home from work, she kicked me so hard that I burst out laughing. I can watch my stomach move and it is so weird. I'd love to see what she is doing in there!

EB is almost 12" long and weighs over a pound. The 24 week check up went well. I've gained 12 pounds, yikes! Her heartbeat sounded good and was, of course, interrupted by kicks. Her heartbeat is ALWAYS interrupted by kicks...we've got an energetic one.

We have a few things on our to do list right now, but one near the top is to take a birthing class. Eek, not sure I really want to know more about it but everyone tells me it will help me feel more prepared.

This is a wild week for us - we move on Friday...we are so ready to get settled into our new home. It's been weird packing up our house now. It's hard not to be emotionally attached since Josh and I have so many great memories here. We hope it will help someone else make awesome memories too, though. On the other hand, I'm ready to be in a space we know we'll be in for a while. We've been so focused on "house stuff" throughout the pregnancy, so it will be nice to change focus and think more about our little girl! Plus, moving at 6 months pregnant isn't such a bad thing...I plan on being a great finger pointer!

You couldn't look any cuter. I am so excited to meet EB! I can't wait until you can start seeing the elbows going in your stomach! That was always my favorite!
