Pregnancy Progress Report-24 Weeks-6 Months

How far along: 24 weeks, 112 days to go
Baby's size: About the size of an Ear of Corn (BabyCenter); 12 inches long and weighs approx 1.3 pounds
Symptoms: Still very out of breath, some cramping, pelvic pain-but mainly at night & first thing in morning only now. My feet and hands have been a little swollen.
Sleep: Still the same as last time: Up every 2 hours to pee and uncomfortable because of pelvic pain so not a lot of sleeping going on. (Note the dark circles in the photo below)
Total Weight Gain: OMG, weight gain is out of control! I gained 10 pounds since my last visit a month ago. That means Total Weight Gain=29 pounds!!! So far the increase at each appointment has gone like this...+6 lbs, +4lbs, +9lbs, +10lbs. This trend needs to quit. My goal for next month is to have only gained a few pounds. So, we shall see. 

Maternity clothes: Only maternity clothes. Hated full panel pants and jeans with 1st pregnancy but those are the only kind I can stand to wear this time. The others cut off my belly too much and are really uncomfortable. Love my long tunic shirts.
Best moment this week: Reaching 24 weeks. It feels like a big milestone for some reason. Can't believe I'm already 6 months pregnant.
Movement:All the time, stronger movements and kicks now.Can see some kicks and movement from the outside.
Food cravings: I can't stop eating!!! So bad! Chips, salads, cake and homemade chicken noodle soup have been my favs lately.
Gender: GIRL....GIRL...GIRL....I'm still so excited about this and can't wait! 
Labor signs: None, but I am having Braxton Hicks daily, especially in the evenings.

What I miss: Same as last time: BEER and WINE!!! And also wearing regular shirts and sleeping on my stomach.
What I'm looking forward to: Still waiting on the moment when Jackson can feel the baby move or see it from the outside.
Weekly Wisdom (aka what I learned this week):That I need to quit eating so much, it's getting out of control. I almost weigh the same as I did the day I went into labor with Jackson and I still have many months to go. So that's not a good sign.
Milestones:Reaching the 6 month mark.
Emotions: Up and down. I get stressed thinking about all I need to do still but I work well under pressure and when I have a list it kinda gets me all motivated to check things off one by one. Oh and I cried last night at the end of American Idol which during non-pregnancy would make me want to puke. So there is that.

I know it's hard to leave wine & beer, but it is for your own good, try to keep focused on your diet.

Lookin' good, Carly! Don't mind your weight, darling. You'll have all the diet you can get on your post-pregnancy for sure. Are you wearing maternity bands? You have a good posture for a preggy woman, as I have noticed.

24 weeks pregnant said...

When I was pregnant I just bought a couple of basics and dressed up with accessories. I had two pairs of smart maternity trousers and a few t-shirts and over shirts.I wasn't too fussy about being a trend setter, I just wanted to feel comfortable.Plus I could never justify spending a fortune for clothes that would not fit me for very long.
