24 weeks!

So I am 24 weeks today, which means baby is now viable hooray! I had my 24 week check up yesterday and everything was good; blood pressure, heartbeat, my fundal height measured right at 24 weeks so that was all good news...next I go for the dreaded glucose test at 28 weeks and we also have our 3D ultrasound scheduled for that week too!..crazy to think that I've already reached viability week, now time is not going by so fast anymore ha...but at least I have the nursery we just started last week that'll keep me busy the next weeks to come so that's fun!...our painter comes next week to paint and install the beadboard, and i've already purchased all the fabrics for the crib and curtains and the bought the rug...then my mom and i have had fun buying antique pieces like this antique chest we found that we are stripping down and high glossing and an old rocker and ottoman I'm having recovered...It's really fun this go round getting to do a baby girl's nursery, I can't wait to get it all up and done! Hopefully it will get me to 30 weeks quick!
And for the weekly preggo post:
How Far Along:
24 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss: Oh goodness still gaining! (Up to 122 pounds, so up 20..yes 20 pounds total as of this week..my doc says it's totally fine since i started out so low, but this new found insane appetite of mine sure caught up with me!)

 Maternity clothes? Nope...still in my maxi dresses every day!

Stretch marks? No, but my belly is getting more veiny so I'm just waiting to see if I get some this time..In the meantime I'm lathering my belly every day with my Belli cream!

Best moment this week: Hubby really feeling kicks and rolls now!
Miss anything: Being able to breathe! My nose is so stuffy and sometimes a little bloody and my gums are really sore!

Movement: Yep, feeling kicks every day..and I swear I'm feeling tiny hiccups since last week!
  Food cravings: Lately it's salads with loads of ranch dressing, Panera, grapefruit, and cheeseburgers!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still mexican and chinese, can't eat it!

Have you started to show yet: Yep! Although i'm carrying this baby girl so low I feel like she is going to fall out some days!

  Gender: A GIRL :)

Labor Signs: No!
  Belly Button in or out?  Very out! 

Wedding rings on or off? On!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Our 3D ultrasound in 4 weeks!
