1. How many weeks are you? 24

2. How are you feeling? Just fine, though getting really tired again

3. Any baby purchases recently? A few little tiny things at garage sales but I can't spend any money right now other than that so I'm going to have to depend on my shower

4. Weight gain so far? Close to 20 pounds :/

5. Any big plans before baby arrives? Buying a house, and I barely have the money for the down payment so I'm stressing a little about that. And I regret that I can't enjoy any baby shopping but oh well. It'll be worth it to have a house for the baby.

6. Next appointment? Have one scheduled the 27th but am considering switching care. I just can't deal with the way you get treated under hospital-based care, even with the midwives. It's very impersonal and you don't even know who will attend you when you actually labor and birth. It could be anyone and they will switch if you labor longer than 12 hours. Just not able to be comfortable with that.

7. Anything you would like to share? Starting to get stressed about moving just over 1 week and nowhere near ready. Plus we are in the last two weeks of school/preschool before summer break. So absolutely loads going on, sports day, beach party, three school productions, school trip, school assemblies, dentist appts, work and moving. Should be interesting lol

3. Any baby purchases recently? I kept buying a bunch of clothes on clearance and I got a lovey for her and a blanket, but I made myself stop shopping because my sister in law finds out Friday what she's having so if she's having a boy I don't think I'm going to really need any clothes. I need to reign myself in.

Besides the SPD pretty good!

3. Any baby purchases recently?
We have everything already for the baby since we had one last year. I have bought some new baby outfits though so he has his own things. We bought a king size bed and moved our old bed into Clara's/baby's room so that it will make nights easier with nursing/changing. My DH will be in the middle of harvesting so we are hoping it allows us to have better sleep.

My DH has to get through wheat harvest in July and white beans in September (around the time baby is due!) Other than that nothing exciting!
