24 Week Update

Only about 3.5 more months until we meet our next Little Man!!  In my last pregnancy update I shared how I felt like this pregnancy is going much faster than my first, well, I don’t what it is but now it feels like it’s just creeping along.  I’m sure that will change again once we really get into fall and all of the fun holidays that are coming up, but until then, I’m trying to enjoy every minute.  Really, if I think about it, I’m less than 4 weeks away from my third trimester, and when put that way, it sounds pretty great!

Even though time feels like it has slowed down,  I  think the baby has gone through a growth spurt since my half way point, but I had a Dr.’s appointment today and was assured that everything is measuring right where it should be!

Other than my fatigue returning a little bit over the past few weeks, and the occasional bout of lower back pain, I feel really good!  I’m still exercising about 5 days a week and my energy during the day is great!  It’s just that by 9:00 I’m usually wiped out.  But early bedtimes are sort of a must in this house as Garrett is an early riser, and is typically awake between 5:45 and 6:15.  Luckily he is great at entertaining himself in his crib in the mornings until we are awake and ready to start our day!

Monthly Update

How far along?  24 weeks, 3 days

Total Weight Gain: 15lbs from my first appointment

Symptoms:  Some lower back pain

Maternity Clothes:  Yes, and desperately looking for a new dress to wear to a wedding next weekend

Food Cravings of the week:  Oatmeal, apples and peanut butter and ice cream

Sleep:  Not the best.  I’m having a hard time picking pillows to use, and unfortunately my snoogle pillow that I used during my first pregnancy makes my neck hurt.  However I do notice that I sleep more soundly on Tuesdays and Thursdays after my pre-natal yoga class

Best Moment this week:  Watching Garrett walk around laughing outside while playing with the dogs (this is a big deal because since he’s started walking he’s hated to do it anywhere but inside)

Movement: Rolls, kicks and punches are in full effect and Dan has felt him move too!

Belly Button:  Innie but quickly approaching the surface

What I miss:  Being able to lean forward during a tough sprint sequence on the stationary bike in spinning classes

What I am looking forward to:  Fall, our good friends wedding in St Louis next weekend, my visit to Ohio the following weekend to see some of my best friends and to meet their new daughters!

Milestones: Creeping into the third trimester with only 16 weeks to go!
