Obviously, that is a sign of a great weekend ... although very unproductive.
I can't believe I posted every day two weeks ago and then last week nothing! It was a tough week!
The Friday before Mother's Day/Graduation Day ... I got laid off from work.
To be honest I am devastated.
I thought I would finally be able to start saving money before this baby is born.
I thought that unemployment would give me more money than they actually are!
I thought that financially things were going to get better for us.
I am overwhelmed and over emotional right now.
I am hoping that I will find a way to make money from home and be able to spend time with the baby when she gets here.
I am not really sure how we are going to make things work now!
24 Week Update
How Far Along: 24 Weeks
Size of baby:
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 8 pounds ... I think! I don't weigh myself until my doctor's appointments.
Maternity Clothes: I am trying to wear mostly non-maternity clothes but this baby is so low that my pants are barely buttoning. I am wearing mostly dresses and skirts. The yellow shirt I am wearing in the picture is maternity and I love it.
Gender: It is a girl!
Movement: This past week the baby has been moving a little bit but I feel like it has been less than the week prior. Maybe this is from the stress of getting laid off from work.
Sleep: I am not sleeping good at all! I start waking up at 5:30 and then continue to wake up every 30 minutes after that. I would really love a good night sleep.
What I miss: I am not really missing anything.
Cravings: Rice, strawberries, and freeze pops.
Symptoms: The heartburn has pretty much gone away as long as I am eating small meals throughout the day. I am very tired but once I get moving I am better.
Best Moment this week: Jacob trying to convince me that he should be the first one to kiss the baby ... before even Dan and I kiss her. He cannot wait to be a big brother. I love how excited he is.
