Baby Lesh: 24 Weeks




How i'm feeling: Good... a little bit of anxiety & nerves, glad the we have a doc app tomorrow to help ease all of that.

How far along: 24 weeks

Size of the baby: About the size of an ear of corn (12 inches and a little over a pound)

Total Weight Gain/loss: not sure, doc app tomorrow

Maternity Clothes:  rockin' my comfy jeans - just wore a maternity shirt (pictured) for the first time today.  My regular shirts are still fitting pretty well, so I am saving the shirts I have for when I am bigger.

Gender: a GIRL!

Movement: yes... tons of it.  She's very active!  You can actually see her moving from the outside.  It's truly amazing and one of the coolest things I have ever felt.

Sleep: Still hit or miss.  Not getting much of it the last few nights, but still getting plenty overall.

What I miss: Taking hot baths, sushi, red wine and guinness... but all worth it. (this probably won't change)  - I definitely missed sitting in the hot tub while we were in snowy Colorado.

Cravings: just fruit.  It always sounds good.

Symptoms: Been dealing with cramping lately, scares me, but I keep telling myself it's normal.  Still a little emotional too!  Learning to not let the little things upset me.

Best moment this week: getting the curtains hung in the nursery, the crib and dresser delivered, and having more and more people feel her move.  Every week new things are happening and it's very exciting.

Looking forward to: each day and week that comes.  I love this little baby girl so much and with every passing week my worries fade a little about getting through with a healthy pregnancy.  I definitely don't take anything for granted.  We are feeling so blessed - and I enjoy seeing the little outfits our families find & hearing from other new mamas about all of the exciting milestones ahead.

I am only 12 weeks behind you! I've been crampy too, and I was told to drink more water because you might be a little dehydrated. All the stretching and pulling down there is uncomfortable too, which can be crampy feeling too!

You are so cute! Yay for planning and starting the nursery. There is nothing like preparing your first babies precious little space. I still LOVE walking into the nursery, everything in there was placed with LOTS of love and prayer!

You look adorable! I had a lot of cramping too and I would get sick to my stomach before every dr. appointment because I was fearing the worst. I think that's totally normal and there's really nothing that can make go away except for hearing that little heartbeat. :)

Don't worry about cramping! I cramped all the time with both babies! As long as she's moving and you aren't bleeding heavily, everything is FINE! Just a little wisdom from having two kids, 99% of the time, everything is totally ok, haha. Try not to stress yourself out.

I feel like I should also follow up by saying this: even if you don't feel movement, chances are everything is fine. I know in my last comment I said "as long as she's moving", but when I was pregnant with Belle I didn't feel her move for three days (towards the end of my pregnancy), I called the doctor panicked. Turns out everything was fine, sometimes when babies run out of space or get close to their due dates, they sleep a lot more in preparation or run out of room to move. Like I said, 99% of the time, everything is fine :)
