Week 24 Bumpdate

How Many Weeks: 24 and officially 6 months pregnant!

Size of Baby: Anywhere from 8.5-11 inches long and 1.5 lbs.

Gender: Boy!

Movement: He definitely gets more active each week. This week he must be facing my back because he's kicking me on the inside. Like I feel the kicks in my butt. SO weird! I think I've felt hiccups a few times too!

Sleep: Can't complain! Aside from getting up to pee a ton I'm usually able to fall back asleep pretty fast. Still using my Snoogle. That thing is a lifesaver because I just know without it I would end up sleeping on my back all night.

Maternity Clothes: Maternity dresses and shorts but can still wear normal dresses and tops too. Definitely must wear maternity bottoms though!

Weight Gain: 10 lbs

Symptoms: The other day this past week I had horrible round ligament pain that lasted off and on all day especially after I peed. It was so bad I was worried something was wrong! But it went away the next day and haven't had any since. Either baby was in a weird position or had a growth spurt! 

Cravings/Aversions: Anything that is carb loaded and bad for you! Aversions are gone, instead I want to eat everything!

Missing Most: Caesar salad. I really wanted one this weekend at Fratello's. I think that may one of the first things I get to eat once this baby comes.

Nursery: Nursery is painted! We also painted this dresser with white chalk paint this weekend. 

Hubby: Painted the whole nursery by himself and pretty much the dresser too. He's the kind of guy who likes things done his way, remember how I said he was Type A?, and I'm all for letting him do it all. He's going to be the best Daddy!

Best Part of the Week: My 24 week appointment went great, baby's heartbeat was 144 bpm and I was measuring right on track. 

Can't Wait For: We have an ultrasound at my next month's appointment so can't wait to see the baby and see how much he's grown!

  3. You look amazing! Yay to no more food aversions and don't worry, you'll be able to have a Caesar salad before you know it! Can't wait to see how your dresser turned out! I'm always nervous painting wood, I don't know why!
