Baby Bump: 24 Weeks!

How far along: 24 weeks.  His brain is quickly growing now, and his taste buds are continuing to develop.  His lungs are developing and he is just over a pound. 

How big is baby: An ear of corn! 

Sleep: It has been awesome since we started school yesterday and the alarm rang at 5:15.  I don't even remember going to sleep last night, I was so tired!

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing new!  Still not eating meat but consuming a lot of yogurt and granola!

Exercise: YOGA!  My belly grows during the days- it is so weird.  So by late afternoon/early evening, I feel a lot more pregnant than I did in the morning.  Yesterday I went to yoga and taught yoga.  May have been a little much, especially with working all day.  I recovered by laying on the couch and watching the Kardashians!

Gender: BOY!!

Movement:  Lots of movement and I continue to feel him the most right as I am going to bed.  Sunday we were pretty busy, getting ready for the impending work week, and I finally laid down to read Anna Karenina, and that is when little dude started doing flip after flip.  I don't think this is a good sign.

Worries: I am worried that this baby has to come out of me.  And it hurts.  There is no sugar coating it this time.  I know how painful it is.

What I'm loving: We are back at school which means it is already the end of August and time is flying.  Before I know it, December will be upon us!

Symptoms: Easy annoyance.  Since we are seeing our co-workers for the first time in 3 months, and not many new I was pregnant until they saw me, I have had a A LOT of comments.  One being how much bigger I am this time around then I was with Paul.  I seriously have no idea what possesses people to talk about body shape, weight, etc. with pregnant ladies.  Just say I look good and move on.  I don't need to hear anything else.

What I'm looking forward to: TODAY!  I only work three days a week, so today I have off with my 2 year old dude.  He is still sleeping now, but I have a fun day planned of science experiments and the letter A!

Best moment of the week: Paul wanting to rub my belly to say hi to his brother.  Then he rubbed my boobs and things got weird!


  1. For what it's worth, I think you look great. People really do make dumb comments. When I was pregnant this last time a cashier at Michael's said, "You look really uncomfortable." Seriously!

  2. ha! just wait til breastfeeding starts (if thats what you plan on doing). Scarlett was OBSESSED with my boobs, her boobs, the word boobs...


Thank you so much for stopping by! I'm so appreciative of your comments, questions and stories!
