belly business -- 24 weeks

How far along: 24 weeks
Size of the baby: eggplant (9 inches long, 1.7 lbs.)
Total weight gain/loss:  official weight gain from the doctor -- 8 pounds
Maternity clothes: Oh yeah! My mom came in town this weekend and was so generous! I had $100 to A Pea in the Pod, so we spent some time in there and I got a pair of leggings, some yoga pants, corduroys and skinny jeans and 3 tops. I'm well on my way!
Cravings: sweets! What usually happens is someone mentions something or I see a commercial on tv and I have to have whatever it is right then.
Symptoms: I've only had one bout of indigestion, other than that, I'm feelin' good.
Movement: Baby M loves to really move around in the evenings when I'm laying in bed watching tv. I think it really loves doing that just as much as I do!
Gender predictions: I've had people tell me they are convinced I'm having a girl and people convinced I'm having a boy. J's great grandmother (who turned 100 right before Thanksgiving) is certain it's a girl and apparently she called all 3 of one of her granddaughter's kids.

My most recent doctor's appointment was this past Thursday and everything was as it should be. Heartbeat was 140 bpm and I have to do the glucose test next time. (Please take a moment to hope and pray I do not have gestational diabetes -- I like sweets way too much!)

And, now, here's this week's crappy picture!
