Bump Update: Week 24



How far along: 24 weeks & 3 days

Size of baby: About 12 inches (she's a foot long from head to toe), weighs about 1.3-1.5 pounds, and is the size of a cantaloupe

Weight gain: 12.5 pounds

Maternity clothes: Maternity pants/shorts and regular & maternity tops

Symptoms: Feel great but need to remind myself to slow down a bit so I'm not exhausted by the end of the day

Gender: Girl!

Exercise: Running & teaching 6-7 days/week

Food cravings: Dr. Pepper

Food aversions: Nothing

Movement: Lots of movement throughout the day and usually right when I wake up in the morning too

Sleep: Sleeping really well and haven't had any issues yet (knock on wood!)

Looking forward to: Todd has been out of town for work and comes home today!  I had lived by myself for 3 years after grad school but now that I'm married, I have a much harder time being alone

Best moment of the week: Finally had a stranger ask if I was pregnant!  I was actually really excited about this because it means I look pregnant even though when he asked how far along I was, he was surprised I was as far along as I am.  He said he had a 7 week old baby at home so since his wife was just pregnant, he thought it looked like I had a baby bump and wasn't just needing to lose a few pounds. We also ordered the glider for the nursery.

Love that little bump! and Dr. Pepper!! The first time someone asked if I was pregnant, I was a bit taken back but actually being pregnant made it easier to hear. It was as if I wasn't prepared for anyone else to notice!

It's so fun when someone first notices your pregnant! Slowing down was so hard for me- it took me awhile to adjust to it. I remember getting out of breath going up and downstairs and asking my doctor and she was like Nope you're find thats normal!
