24 weeks

How far along? 24 weeks. the baby now ways over a 1lb
Total weight gain:  total weight gain 13.6 lbs. I love Halloween but all of this candy is killing me. My appetite increased this past week. This doesn't bother me but the fact that all I want is candy is an issue. Eric said he would hide it from me if i wanted. I think the evil glare was enough to know to leave the candy where I can find it. I am still right in the middle for weight gain so I can live with a 2lb weight gain two weeks in a row.
Stretch marks? Need to get back to using lotion like I was. Even though I don't really think it will help. Keeping fingers crossed for no stretch marks.
Sleep: Still sleeping really well. I have only needed to use a pillow in between my legs. the past few nights I have not even needed that.
Best moment this week:  Feeling the baby move more regularly is pretty awesome.
Miss Anything? Not really
Movement: every single day.... I have no clue what he was doing in there the other day. It was obvious he had his arms and legs going like crazy. I like to think he was having a dance party in there.
Food cravings: Reese's and snikers. Hence the two pound weight gain.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Gender: All Boy
Labor Signs: none Nope!   
Symptoms:  Itchy boob...yes boob, singular.  It's just one in particular and it drives me INSANE!!  I just want to rip off my bra and start scratching like a crazy person but I know I can't!  It's honestly so annoying though.
I am also getting hives which is annoying because it is hormone related so not much I can do.
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time: happy ! My mood hasn't really changed from pre-pregnancy
Looking forward to: Going home in two weeks. Which makes me realize only 4 more months till Channing is here! This is nuts and the time will fly by because of all the holidays. I really enjoy being pregnant so I would like time to slow way down.

***Dr's apt. update***
Last Friday was my monthly Dr's appointment. I must say I was annoyed! I was suppose to see the OB again ( i have only seen her once). Something came up and I was seen by the nurse practitioner for the umpteenth time. I find going to the appointments to be unnecessary and a waste of money. They ask how I am feeling and listen to the baby. That is it! I am seriously in there for 10 min. They never tell me what to expect or what changes will be taking place. I have had to look up everything online as it has happened. I really want to get to know the Dr and make sure we are on the same page. I am beginning to think a Midwife would be a better fit for me. I am going to do a whole post on this later. Besides the lack of attention at the Dr's it was a good appointment. Channing's heartbeat was very strong. They also started measuring my belly this time. I also will not have to go back for another a/s. The tech that did the ultrasound couldn't get a good picture of Channing's heart chambers. The NP said the radiologist was able to see the chambers so everything looked good. I was kinda bummed. I didn't want anything to be wrong, but wanted to see him again and get some better pictures since we didn't get any of his profile. We have decided to get a 3D ultrasound done sometime in November.
