Pregnancy Week 24 Update


I’m learning that taking selfies is NOT one of my skills.

How Far Along? This pic was taken at 24 weeks and 2 days.

Baby’s size? 1 1/3 pounds.

What else is going on with the babies? They are almost a foot long and are the size of an ear of corn. Their brains are continuing to grow and their taste buds are starting to develop.

Total weight gain/loss: 15-18ish pounds

Stretch marks? None. Still using my belly cream 2x/day!

Sleep: I’m definitely moving around more at night, but once I fall asleep I’m usually out. Been falling asleep around 10pm and wake up between 6:30 and 7, when the hunger strikes and the dog is up!

Best moment this week: There hasn’t been one particular moment, but overall I’m so thankful that I’m feeling good and able to be relatively active still.

Miss Anything? Wine and being able to lie on my stomach.

Movement: Yep, noticing them at certain times during the day and bright and early in the morning…getting me prepared for the future I guess!

Food cravings: Nothing crazy this week, just food in general every few hours 🙂 Since I’m eating so often I’m really trying to snack on some healthy stuff like: carrots & hummus, apples & peanut butter, and yogurt and granola. That has been tough with the holidays lately, but I’m ready to get back on track!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope

Gender: Boy and Girl! Smile

Symptoms: Besides the growing belly, just needing to use the restroom A LOT.

Workouts: I try to walk Paisley almost daily either 20-30 minutes depending on how I feel and how cold it is outside! Still been taking Pure Barre 2-3x/week….I am noticing more and more modifications I need to make throughout the workout, but I’m happy I’m still able to participate without any issues!

Belly Button in or out? It’s starting to push out more!

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!

Looking forward to: Spending a relaxing weekend with the hubby (most of our moving in projects are finished) and watching football with friends on Sunday. And my next doctor’s visit is next week and I always look forward to those!

Happy Thursday to you all!

Any fun plans this weekend or just relaxing after the last bit of holiday festivities?
