Pregnancy Week 24 #24weekspregnant #babynumber2 #pregnancyjourney #pregnancyjournal

Hello week 24! Another week down... 16 more to go? I'll bet they're going to start going pretty fast. At least they feel like they're going a lot faster. 

What do I look like now? 

Bump showing, but I can still slightly see my ribs up top. Morning sickness returned :(. Nothing really helped these last few days...One day I was sick ALL day. Kept thinking I was going to pass out too. It's was so bad. My doctor recommended I head to Labor and Delivery at hospital to get checked out.
I got there and the nurse at the desk asked who I was there to see. I told her I was there to check myself in, and she said, "Oh my gosh, let me get a wheel chair! Don't walk! Wait. Wheelch---" She was nervous and frantic, and it was a little comical, well would've been if I hadn't been feeling so terrible... I told her I was fine, not in labor, just needed to be seen.
Long story short,
I was seen in triage, baby was doing fine, kept kicking heart monitor. I was given fluids, and that horrible Phenergan. Is that how you spell it? I felt so sleepy, I could barely carry a convo. Didn't help that I was so drained from all of the vomiting throughout the day. I wasn't too dehydrated, which was a good sign. They just marked it off as horrible morning sickness....
After I appeared to be doing better, I was sent home. 
Let me say this one more time---Phenergan is HORRIBLE. It helped with my nausea a lot, but I was SO drowsy and I got this really nasty feeling in my left arm. It was a light tingle, then a big tickle, then crazy numbness, then itching on the inside. I wanted to cut my arm off! I complained but they said, "Oh, it's probably just a pinched nerve.." No. It was not!
My right arm started to feel that way too. It lasted for a few hours. It was restless arm syndrome times a billion. I just wanted to cry. It had to stop. And then it did. 
I don't want that med ever again.

Ok, and by the way, I think I had a bug. I say this because my son ended up puking most of the next night and was sick. Makes sense to me. It passed after a day for us both and hasn't happened since. So happy about that.

Baby's Progress?
She weighs about 1 1/3 pounds now, and is about one foot long from head to toe. Oh, yeah my tummy is stretching. I can feel it. Achiness. Tons of powerful kicks. I think I'm feeling limbs. It feels kind of like fingers trailing along my lower stomach sometimes now. Tickles, but I love feeling her move.
Uterus is above belly button. I guess it makes sense why my tummy is still looking bigger on top than on bottom right?

Oh, my baby, I can't wait to hold you. This is a rough journey, but still so worth it...

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
