So I hit BiLo on the way home from the gym armed with some coupons and picked up some cookie mix and some break-and-bake cookies (yes, I've gotten THAT lazy).
While dinner was cooking I started on the Peanut Blossoms (peanut butter cookies rolled in sugar and then topped with a Hershey Kiss once they are done baking). After dinner was the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and then I moved on to the easy break and bake ones. All in all I finished four different kinds of cookies and was able to bring some to work to share with people so I don't pack on even more pounds.

Anyway, that was my contribution to the Christmas spirit for the day. Now time for my weekly check-in:
How far along? 24w2d - he's somewhere between 15 and 20 oz I think.
Weight gain/loss: +16 as of this morning. Based on the horrible aching in my back these last few days it seems that the recent weight has settled in my boobs.
Maternity Clothes: I've worn one maternity shirt (because it was cute) and I wear a pair of work pants every so often. I ordered some jeans from Old Navy and they sucked so I had to send them back. Good thing I still have 3 pairs of normal jeans I can wear.
Symptoms: Cement bowel and excruciating rib pain. Either a tear in the connective tissue or a hairline fracture. Awesome.
Gender: It's a boy!!!
Sleep? Sleeping ok. The heating pad it helping a bit.
Best moment this week? All the little kicks and punches this little man is dishing out. I love feeling him in there :)
Movement: Yep - he's an active little bugger in the evenings. Still waiting to be able to get J to feel it. He's never quick enough.
Food cravings/aversions: None.
Belly button in or out? Still nicely in, but the top fold feels weird. I hope that doesn't mean it's making it's way out.
What I miss? Pooping and not being so achy.
What I am looking forward to? Getting started on the nursery - hopefully during our time off for the holidays.
Milestones: Hitting V-Day this past Sunday!
What I'm nervous about: I have my glucose test next Tuesday and I'm afraid that I'll fail it and have to do the 3 hour test. Ugh.
And this week's bump pic. I had a different one, but I look kind of rough in that one. It's not been a great morning...
