The Ravenous Baby: 24 Weeks

Hit the big date... viability!  I don't want to see this little nugget for at least 12 more weeks, but it's nice to know he has a fighting chance if he was born this early.  I also had my monthly appointment and everything was right on point.  I'm already looking forward to my 28 week appointment, that's when my c-section will be scheduled.  It will be nice to have a date this time around when I know I can meet my little man.

How far along? 24 Weeks + 2 Days

Food size: Ear of Corn

Total weight gain: 15.6 lbs

Exercise: 4 workouts done!  1 BodyPump, 1 BodyPump/Step class, a 2 mile walk, and weights on my own one day.  I'm starting to incorporate some Yoga this week from YouTube, we will see how that goes!

Sleep/Dreams:  Sleep is pretty good.  Last night was one of the first dreams I've had where I was about to have the baby.  I was in a hospital that looked alot like Hogwarts and my friend was visiting me.  She tried to force me to use this brown deodorant and I got so mad at her, haha.  Then we walked around and saw Hulk Hogan and Snoop Dog there.  It was so random!

Movement: Feeling little kicks and movement, but not as intense as last week.  Maybe the baby switched positions?

Symptoms: Not as tired as last week.  But I got a horrible leg cramp this morning, ouch!  My leg was in mild pain for a couple hours after... hope that doesn't happen again.

Preggo Brain Moments:  Forgetting where I put EVERYTHING.  Not convenient at all.

Food cravings: Cheese, cheese, cheese... and key lime pie

Food aversions:  Not really

Maternity Clothes: Mostly maternity wear now. The top and shorts from the photo are both from Old Navy.  Just got a delivery from the Gap I still need to try on.

Belly Button/ Stretch Marks: Still in, and none yet.

Gender: BOY!

What I miss: Happy hour(s)

Best moment this past week:  Date day with the hubby was amazing.

What I am looking forward to this week: Eating all the key lime pie and ice cream I made, hehe.


  1. I love that meme! I am not much of a beer drinker, but I sure did miss my wine. Enjoy your keylime pie! I need the recipe, it is my husband's favorite.

  2. Hooray for finding out exactly when you will be meeting this little guy! I didn't have leg cramps with my first pregnancy, but they have been so bad this time. I get them almost daily and they are no fun at all! I know what you mean about the after-ache. Hopefully that will be it, and you won't keep getting them for the rest of the pregnancy.


Thanks for stopping by!
