I had an appointment with my midwife this past week and I gained 5 lbs (!!!) in one month. This is not the greatest news, but I know that a lot of people (who are not pregnant) also gained 5 lbs during the holidays. I'm hoping the weight gain slows down a bit. I've gained 15 lbs so far. The one sad thing about the weight gain is that my rings are starting to feel *really* snug. I actually had to take them off yesterday when I was packing :( I know it's silly, they're only rings, but this makes me sad; even sadder than having to give up wine for 9 months.
Rings aside, I'm loving being pregnant. I do get tired more easily, which makes the packing for our move a bit harder, but that's to be expected. We started packing well in advance and do a bit every day so it's not overwhelming. We've also contacted a cleaning service to help us with the cleaning of both houses; a quick cleaning of the house we're selling, and a big cleaning of the house we're moving into.
The fun thing about being 24 weeks is that I am *really* showing now :) People in my classes started noticing this week.
Also, one of my dogs (the pug) loves sleeping on my pregnant belly. I think she's hatching it.
