Week 24 - Off Roadin

Two dozen down, and sixteen (ish) left to go!  What are we up to this week?

Your Pregnancy: Week 24
Your baby's growing steadily, having gained about 4 ounces since last week. That puts him at just over a pound. Since he's almost a foot long (about the size of a beach bucket!), he cuts a pretty lean figure at this point, but his body is filling out proportionally and he'll soon start to plump up. His brain is also growing quickly now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop. His lungs are developing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help his air sacs inflate once he hits the outside world. His skin is still thin and translucent, but that will start to change soon.

Total Weight Gain: Up 11 pounds.  Bit by bit....probably time to indulge in some chocolate, right?  My daycare provider told me I grow "little baby bumps".  Always something every woman wants to hear, right? :-)

 My Body Gettin rounder day by day!  Seem to be carrying this one similar to Rob - some people might guess about the sex, but I think it's just the way I carry bebes.  Either way, I have to pee every 10 minutes.  This does not bode well, folks.....

Cravings: Nothing too out of the ordinary.  Still on the cheese bandwagon, as always.  Also been a big fan of cherries this week, but I'm not sure thats a pregnancy thing - cherries are ALWAYS delicious IMO!

Aversions: Soda.  Get it away.  (Can this last?  That would be awesome!)

Sleep: Terrible.  Not only are bathroom breaks common place but the damned neighbors and their dog at 4am is killing me.  I might have taken a few steps to eliminate this....when the dog wakes everyone up and your one year old decides 4:30 is a great time to give a piano concert, the game has officially stopped being fun.

Baby Items Bought/Received: Bought some decorations for Nugget's room - we are going Jungle Animals!

Best Baby Moment: Family run at Mendon Mauler.  It might not have been the race we were hoping for, but this is our first family of 4 event and it rocked!!

Goals: Sleep through the night.  C'mon, we can make this happen!  Also, Gananda garage sale is this weekend.  I don't need much but if a few cute baby outfits happen to be on sale....Nugget can wear some unique stuff, too!!!  

Worries: How am I almost in the 3rd freaking trimester???  Where has the time gone, seriously????

This Week:
Run: 9 miles
Bike: 70 miles
Swim: 5 miles
Total: 84 miles

To Date:
Run: 283.1 miles
Bike: 1316 miles
Swim: 56.5 miles
Total: 1635.6 miles...or, the distance from Rochester NY to Albuquerque, NM.  Seriously one of the coolest sounding cities in the US!
