24 Weeks and an Update on Baby Ray

Update on Ray's baby:

Here, Healthy and Beautiful.

No issues, though small at 5lb 9oz.

Hopefully, I make a post with the same first 4 words about myself in a few months.

Bi-weekly Update:

How far along: 24 Weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of an:  An ear of corn!

Total weight gain: Up 5! That's from my lowest weight, not my starting point. From starting point I'm down only 1 pound.
Maternity clothes: You know it. I have to wear hub's clothes to bed :/
Stretch marks: I think may be one is starting on my hip, but it could be a red mark from leaning against something, or an old one
Sleep: Up 1-2 times a night to pee, but OK otherwise
Best moment since last update: Viability! And adding 2-3% of survival likelihood every day
Miss anything: Sam Adams Oktoberfest. The Winter Sam is my least favorite of all Sam beers.. I am pretty sad I'm coming back into drinking on that one. There is a Harpoon Winterwarmer in my future though.
Movement: Yep, a lot. I can even see it now!
Food cravings: I don't hate food as much as I did, but I don't have much of an appetite
Anything making you queasy or sick: Anything fried or spicy.. so everything
Have you started to show yet: Yes
Sex: None for me, thanks.
Labor signs: Not until at least 37 weeks please.
Belly button in or out: Still weird but in

Wedding rings on or off: On, I really hope they remain so.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, Happy.. and tired
Looking forward to: Getting to the point that we would actually resuscitate if the baby was born. It depends on the baby of course, but this date is more like 28 weeks than the 24 of viability.
