24 weeks

Symptoms: Really just normal aches and pains as things adjust in there. Im sure my backaches are made worse by a certain 30-pound toddler demanding to be held and carried too. Heartburn comes and goes, I get full fast and tired more easily, but overall Im doing well. Still no carpal tunnel signs!

Medical stuff: Our anatomy scan was perfect which was a huge relief. Ive gained about 15 pounds so far which is fine I guess. My doctor gave me a hard time about not taking my iron pills so I guess Ill try to be good. My 1-hour glucose tolerance test is coming up this week and she told me that Ill probably fail it (like I did with Meredith) because I have PCOS. How fun!

Movement: Its much  more pronounced now. Not constant, but daily. Loving that.

Clothes: I wear almost exclusively maternity clothes now except for some stretchy skirts. For work I broke out my larger scrub pants that I wore during my last pregnancy and postpartum, and even though I could squeeze into my regular tops its just not comfortable so I wear maternity t-shirts and scrub jackets.

Preparation: Got our new carpet and Im working on our bedroom! Okay so its not specifically new baby preparation but its something on my list that I want to get done beforehand. Otherwise we havent done much other than throw a few names around that we both kind of like. Still completely not sold on them though and I had a dream that the baby was born nameless so that might happen. With the holidays coming up and lots of other unrelated things on my to-do list this whole baby thing is going to take me by surprise if Im not careful. Ill have to do a before baby post because the more I think about it the more there probably is on it.

Also: Its funny how much Im not focused on the pregnancy this time around. Im just way too busy with Meredith and work. I guess I can attribute some of my mania where the house is concerned to pregnancy because it gives me a deadline, but overall its just kind of there in the background. I still can hardly imagine having a second kid in the house and a male version at that. Pretty excited though. :)
