24 weeks

Went to the doctor today for a regular baby checkup.  All is well!

Size:  Approximately the size of a Papya

Heartbeat:  148 beats strong
How I’m feeling:  Besides having a cold, I’m definitely feeling better than last pregnancy, but again I think its because I’m striving to work out more.  Of course not this week since I’ve been sick.  I also don’t really remember that I am pregnant.  Weird?  The time that I do is when I sit down to eat and need a tv tray and napkin that covers the front of me because I can’t successfully be a clean eater with out it due to my growing belly.
How much weight I’m gaining:  HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  LIKE I WOULD SHARE THAT!  All I will say however is that I’m doing MUCH better than last pregnancy.  And although my spandex-wearing-bike-riding doctor did say “oh ____ lbs gained?  I’ll take it” today, which seems good, I’m not so convinced.  I know he is a bit mindful of how much weight I am gaining, because lets face it, I NEED to NOT gain a lot of weight.  I didn’t lose any from last time, so I have to be on top of my game this time.  So I decided that I will track how much I’m eating through a Weight Watchers program.  No no no.  Don’t worry, I’m not dieting, just putting myself in check.
Gender:  Still currently in a sealed envelope tacked to my white board.  Unknown.  Although Jeff and I are both hoping for another GIRL.  But we will certainly love and cherish this baby no matter what.
Names:  There has been a girl name that we have been discussing since we first found out we were pregnant.  I like the long version, he likes the short nickname of it.  After a while we took it off the table.  Just the other night, I heard him say “ok, ok, I think I concede.  (if its a girl) We can put ___________ back on the table”.  This is HUGE.  Mostly because we can’t think of ANY other names.  Seriously, we are ridiculous.  And we don’t have any names for boys either.  I think its a mental block.
