24 weeks

24 weeks

I'm 25 weeks now but here was 24.....Can't keep up!

How far along: 24 weeks
How big is baby: The size of a rutabaga or cauliflower....about 13 1/2 inches long and weighs a pound and a half
Weight gain/loss: well I am officially over this question...But I guess I will document. I went to the doctor this week and she said I have gained 17 pounds! She said it was normal..... :)
Maternity Clothes: YES!
Stretch marks:No thankfully.
Sleep: It's still ok. Ike and I have a king size bed but I have always liked to sleep close, but this may have to change (for a little while) because we are waking each other up a lot lately.
Diet: ANYTHING! I am eating ALL the time..... I need to do better about eating small meals. I think this would help with indigestion.
Gender: Boy! Brantley Cleve
Movement: YES! He is moving a good bit. I LOVE it!!! I really look forward to feeling him move, and I want Ike to feel it too as much as he can. :) My sister came to visit last weekend, and Brant was moving around so I got her to feel it. As soon as she put her hand on my stomach he kicked her hand.
The belly: BIG! I really really feel like it popped out this week!
What I miss: Diet coke.
Symptoms: Heartburn/indigestion.
What I'm looking forward to: Our doctor's visit in January. We have another ultrasound, and we can't wait to see him! AND Ms. Susie has finished his bedding and is bringing it to us this weekend!! I can't wait to have it all together!
Best moment of the week: We had a great doctor's visit and heard Brant's sweet heartbeat!

Baby Andrews has a name..

Baby Andrews has a name.....

Brantley Cleve
We really decided his name pretty early on, but getting Ike to commit was another thing.  Ike is a third, and he had already decided that he wanted to do something different.  He says it can be complicated sharing a name.  Ike's name is actually Ira Cleve.  He is the 4th generation to use Cleve, and we thought it would be really special to at least carry that on.  So we just had to find something we liked to go with it.  Ike actually came up with Brantley and I loved it.  I think we will call him Brant, but we will see.  I am excited that we finally have a name!  

21 weeks

I'm 22 Weeks, Sam says he is 25 weeks after thanksgiving lunch.
 I am currently 23 weeks but I don't have a picture to prove it, but here is a little catch up on our progress...
How far along: 23 weeks
How big is baby: should be just over a pound now and the size of a grapefruit
Weight gain/loss: about 12 pounds
Maternity Clothes: YES!
Stretch marks:no
Sleep: OK.  My hips have starting hurting some at night, but nothing too bad.
Diet:  ANYTHING!  Not craving anything and no aversions either.  Just hungry!
Gender: Boy!
Movement: YES!  Brantley is moving a good bit now. 
The belly: BIG! 
What I miss: Diet coke.
Symptoms: Heartburn/indigestion.  I had indigestion (I'm sure from WAY over eating) so bad over thanksgiving.  I threw up all night.

Best moment of the week: Ike felt Brantley really moving this week.  It is such an amazing thing for us to be able to feel him.
