24 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 24 Weeks and 1 Day 
  • How I'm feeling: Still great.  No complaints from this mama :)
  • Total weight gain:  Went to the doctors on Wednesday and I have gained a total of 12 pounds.  I am happy with it, but want to start watching what I eat again because if I gain a pound a week (which is what they recommend) for the remainder of this pregnancy I will be right at 28 pounds.  I would love to stay under 30 pounds gained if at all possible.  Wish me luck :)
  • How big is baby? Baby boy H is the size of a Cantaloupe this week!  I can't believe how much he is growing!  He is most likely between 10-14 inches by now - although I am sure with his tall daddy's genes he is closer to 14 :)  Weighing in at about 18 ounces.
  • This week baby: is continuing to grow his lungs.  His skin is also changing from being translucent to looking more opaque.
  • Maternity clothes: Yes!  And with this temperature spike we are having I am finding that shorts and capris will be my life very shortly.
  • Sleep:  Sleep is still fabulous.  I am getting tired again but that is normal.  I am still sleeping on my stomach and having no problems.  I am starting to wonder if there will be a time in this pregnancy where I no longer can?
  • Best moment this week: We registered for all of Baby H's things and ordered the Baby Shower Invitations.  I can't wait!
  • Movement: I am starting to feel him more but definitely not on the outside of my belly.  He does a lot of twisting and quick jabs at me.  Nothing too major.  At our appointment on Wednesday we could hear him kicking and our nurse practitioner couldn't believe that I couldn't feel them, as they sounded very powerful.  He is a silly boy.  I hope we start feeling him on the outside more, I know that hubs would love it.
  • Food cravings: Always Mexican and pasta.  A huge thing for cheese right now too.  Good thing I love all three of those things already :)
  • Food aversions: Nope.  
  • Belly button in or out:  Belly button is still in.
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful that Baby H is continuing to grow big and strong.  I am thankful that we are going to have his room together shortly and that we will get to meet him in 3 months!
  • What I'm looking forward to: We are going to Lake Tahoe this weekend for my mom's birthday and the hubs and I have never been.  We are also looking forward to decorating his nursery very soon :)

    1. Maxi dresses and t-shirt dresses are amazing too! Once my bump grew into a whole baby belly, I couldn't hardly find shirts to cover it, even in maternity!

    2. That's a beautiful dress; I wish I would have had one like that when I was pregnant of my son.
