Cravings: Believe it or not, there hasn't been anything in the past couple of weeks that I just had to have. I do find myself searching the kitchen and baking lots of sweet things though. We're cruising along and I know that my husband is thankful for no crazy cravings that have him going out in search of.
Food Aversions: None! Yes, I am feeling like a normal person again! :)
Heartbeat: still in the 160's.
Gender: precious baby BOY!
Extras: I'm feeling great and love feeling our boy get stronger with his kicks and thumps. I have no idea what position he is in right now but it's a funky one. Sort of feels like he's transverse. I'm up a total of 13 pounds which is pretty much where I was at with Kate at this point. The only thing that is saving me is my daily long uphill walks that I take Kate on each morning. I need to get better about doing my arm weights because for the first time in my life I have back fat. :::gasp::: I can't believe I just admitted that. You know the fat right behind your arms on your back? Yeah, I am so disturbed and am determined to make it disappear before this little man arrives. Other than that wonderful bit of news, things are great and I can't wait to see my doctor in a week for my checkup.
At week 24, William is now the size of a papaya and weighs around 1.3 pounds. Thank God all 13 of those pounds aren't all me! :)
Only a couple more weeks left in the 2nd tri! Amazing!
