Baby Update | 23/24 Weeks!

Hi dolls! So I combined these last two weeks together because again, (thankfully) it's was kind of uneventful - up until last Wednesday night! Actually, I should back up a sec. There was another eventful day too. Last Saturday, we went to Anthony's uncle's birthday party. We were just sitting there, playing checkers near the pond (yeah, we're those people) and the babe started kicking. Now, I've definitely been getting kicks but nothing like these so I quickly told Ant to put his hand on my belly and he felt him give a big kick! One of the best moments EVER. Then the babe went into hiding and would only kick late at night. THEN, Wednesday night, my insomnia kicked in and I was up and around 2AM, he started kicking like crazy. I don't even know what made me decide to check it out, but I flashed my phone light down at my tummy and guys, I COULD SEE LITTLE KICKS! It looked like my belly was having little spasms. SO FREAKING COOL. I can't even explain how I felt. It was amazing!

Also, we printed out our baby shower invites so the planning has officially started! :) The invites are from Made By Katy Designs and I'm seriously in love! I can't wait to show you all once they're sent out. 

How far along? 24 weeks!
Total weight gain: 10 pounds still last time I checked.
Maternity clothes? Maxis, maternity tees and my fave pair of Old Navy Maternity jeans rolled up.
Stretch marks? On the 20th, I noticed my first little stretch mark :(
Sleep: Eh. My back's been hurting lately so it's been uncomfortable lately but still doing pretty well.
Miss Anything? Not really. 
Movement: HECK YES! I absolutely love it. 
Food cravings: I could STILL really go for a McDonalds Ranch BLT Chicken sandwich, fries and a Starbucks frapp...
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing.
Gender: It's a boy! 
Labor Signs: None!
Symptoms: Insomnia, lower back hurts.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On but sometimes they get stuck.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but feeling incredibly overwhelmed lately.
Looking forward to: Meeting the babe! But for now, the baby shower! :) Oh, and we're going to be on vacation not this week but next week - WHOOP WHOOP!
