My goodness, am I really that far along now??? Do we really only have 16 more weeks to prepare for a life changing event?? Geez. We have a lot to do.
I am officially in my 6th month of pregnancy. I still can't quite fit into maternity shirts. I hate chicken now (unless it's fried). All I want is steak and fish. I am officially halfway finished with my MBA!
Another fun fact: From the moment I found out I was pregnant, all I could think about was how life was going to change. For some reason, one of the things I was incredibly focused on was how I was going to go fishing for long periods of time if I was still breastfeeding. I know it is a ridiculous thing to focus on especially since I haven't been fishing in like 3 years. There are more important things to focus on (like, how are we actually going to raise a human?). But I found myself totally fixated on this. And how vacations with my husband were going to forever change. So what did we do about this?? First, I scheduled a babymoon with my darling hubby for July to Destin for a long weekend.
Second, my Dad took me fishing last weekend. We had a couple of days of all day fishing and it was awesome. The only downside to fishing while 6 months pregnant standing a lot in the sun, heat and humidity is the size my feet and ankles decided to swell to. Grade 2 pitting edema...not fun...but worth it for plenty of trout. Exactly how much water was retained? Well, last night I got home I weighed myself (and then pouted a little). This morning (after getting up 4 times in the middle of the night) I was 5 pounds lighter.
Anyhow, here's the bean (with swollen mom) at 24 weeks.
