Week 24 Bumpdate
 As you can see, we finally hung pictures in the house. These hanging shelves and frames make my heart happy. They hold most of our favorite people all in one place.
Size of the baby: Cauliflower – 13.5 inches long and weighs 1.5 pounds.
Biggest baby development: Nostrils start opening.
Total weight gain: Didn't weigh myself.
Gender: Boy!!
Maternity clothes: Haven't bought anything lately. I do need to go bra shopping and find a maternity bathing suit.
Movement: Little man hasn't been as active this week. I think he's laying really far back, because the kicks don't seem to be as prominent. My mom was able to feel him kick over the weekend....and I'm sure that's all she's talking about this week :)
Sleep: I have been using the Snoogle Pregnancy Pillow which has been a complete lifesaver, but for some reason I've been more comfortable using a regular pillow to support my belly this week.
Nursery: Haven't thought about it. Just the thought of everything we still need for a baby is overwhelming and the nursery door has stayed closed for a few days.
Cravings: Nectarines and chocolate pudding. The green olives have also made a return this week. And I can't stand eggs...even the look of them makes me want to gag.
Symptoms: The leg cramps have started, but PowerAde ZERO has helped a little. My left foot is starting to swell, but I think it's a combination of having foot surgery a few years ago and the pregnancy.
Khanh is: Chubby. *Disclaimer: This is a direct quote from the Hubby himself.* He did send another e-mail shortly after and said he is super excited. I like the first answer better. Haha!
Looking forward to: Two baby showers this month! My Grammie is flying in from Maryland for the first shower and I can't wait to see her.
Best moments: I got to talk to one of my best friends from high school that now lives in Mississippi (Hi Audry!). Even though we can't see each other on a regular basis, it's like distance disappears when we are able to catch up. We also got to see my grandparents on their 62nd Anniversary. Look how adorable they are!

Note: I post these updates at the end of the week, so I am currently in my 26th week.
