24 Weeks?!

Today I opened my email and babybump reminded me that we are 24 weeks along. Holy crappola, I say. I can't even believe the time has doubled since I saw the little survivor bean in the ultrasound. I am so incredibly lucky to be here right now. I still can't believe it. Bebe's been quite busy bouncing around the belly. Bebe must be getting big because I can see movement about an inch or so above my belly button and all the way down at the same time. Kicking and punching, I suppose.

I am on my break right now, but the break has been busy. We are furiously working on renovating the back room to make it a master suite. Floors are being installed as I write this. The coats of polyurethane are being applied next weekend, so DH and I are skipping town to escape from the fumes. I am not quite sure where we will go since the Mississippi River flooding is screwing up all the cute places we like to go in Louisiana and Mississippi. We wanted to do a Delta Blues tour, but the poor Delta is screwed right now. It's tough to do all this research to find a dog friendly B&B, but I'm on it.

I decided that at 24 weeks, I was going to stop running, even if I get the urge. I am peeing a lot (or at least feeling the urge to pee a whole lot more), so my thoughts are that the baby is big now, and I don't want any premature labor happening because of the running.

Happy Wednesday to you all.

Happy 24 weeks! Oh I can't wait to be able to run again! I haven't been allowed to run since my IVF cycle! Probably a good idea to cut back if you are feeling it might set you into premature labour.

Woohoo for 24 weeks!! I'll be there with you on Saturday. It feels like such a milestone, doesn't it?

Regardless where you go, enjoy the time with Hubby and some well-deserved relaxation!!

Congrats on the 24 week mark- it is a huge milestone.
Hope you vacation is wonderful- there is nothing like getting away from 'real' life and just relaxing- have fun!
Isn't baby movement the greatest feeling in the world- I just love it!

I hope you find a perfect spot for your getaway. It is so nice to be able to disconnect for a bit! Congrats on making it to 24 weeks - that's a big milestone, but the need to pee only gets worse!!

Congrats on week 24! Very exciting to hit that HUGE milestone! I cannot wait to run again... or sweat for that matter! LOL! I was very active prior to IVF, now I just stick to yoga and light walking... but even walking is getting hard! Keep your bebe cookin!
