How far along? 24 weeks
Total weight gain: 18lbs at my 24 week appt yesterday
Maternity clothes? Absolutely, I'm enjoying wearing the new maternity clothes my mom and I got last week.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: still pretty good but I can tell it will get harder to sleep soon.
Best moment this week: feeling the baby move and seeing and feeling the kicks from the outside.
Miss Anything? Not really this week!
Movement: Yes! I can definitely tell when the baby moves now, and I love it!
Food cravings: No particular cravings really. Just the usual foods I like to eat.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope not at all. Just getting over a cough and congestion.
Labor Signs: Nope
Symptoms: I honestly don't have many symptoms right now. People were definitely accurate when they said the second trimester is the most enjoyable and easiest part of the pregnancy. (At least in my experience)
Belly Button in or out? In but still looking a little stretched out!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: our last New Year's Eve as a couple and decorating the nursery!
This week Baby Ciak is the size of a...
I guess that explains why my belly has grown so much over the past week or two! Hard to believe my uterus is now the size of a soccer ball! He weighs just over a pound and is gaining weight in his muscles and bones.
I also got this notification today on one of my apps. We've reached another milestone! With lots of medical help, the baby could survive in the outside world at this point. Very exciting!
At my doctors appointment yesterday they did all the routine checks. They started measuring my belly too, and they checked the heartbeat. I just love hearing it everytime I go! At my next appointment in 4 weeks, I have my 1 hour glucose screening to check for gestational diabetes. The doctor said I didn't have any risk factors so it all comes down to genetics. Hopefully I'll pass and won't have to do the 3 hour glucose test. It's hard to believe after next appointment I start seeing the doctor every 2 weeks until the last month. Things sure are moving along now! Only 16 weeks to go!
Happy New Year everyone!!
