24 Weeks

How far along? 24 weeks
Baby fact: At this stage, baby spends a lot of time yawning
Symptoms: My aching tailbone is back, and I'm suddenly taking more potty breaks.
Movement: It's my favorite part. I'm not sure if it's just coincidence, but he seems to move a lot when Steve is plucking at the guitar.
Sleep: Getting used to it. I find myself daydreaming about sleep often.
Dreams: I dreamt that I gave birth to a baby, and it grew a mouth before my eyes. Then, it suddenly had dreadlocks. I know.
Cravings: Pineapple, Asian noodles, and any baked goods.
Favorite moments: Going on a light jog/fast walk with a friend. I felt SO good afterwards. Hoping to keep it up. Another favorite moment from the week was a surprise visit from my sister (she lives in NYC). She and my mom showed up at my classroom and truly made my week.
On the to-do list: Start getting rid of things I don't need (mostly clothes)
Looking forward to: Vacation! We are going to Hawaii for the first time in a few weeks. And this weekend we are heading to Boston. Steve is running the Boston Marathon. I'm looking forward to cheering him on and seeing some great friends.


  1. that's a weird dream rach! :) also, if you're getting rid of clothes, may i invite myself to peruse them before you send them away? remember when we used to do that with lizzy's closet? love you friend!

  2. Yay! I love baby updates! Our busy season is almost done (one more week) and then I want to see that baby bump in person!
