Bumpdate {24 weeks}

Size of baby: a cantaloupe! I feel like that is SO big!
Weight gain: I was right…I got weighed at the doctor’s Thursday and I have barely gained any weight since my last appointment! .9 pounds to be exact! So we’ll round up and say I've gained 15 total pounds.    
Maternity clothes: Yes! I think I've worn a maternity outfit everyday this week!
Gender: A GIRL
Movement: She’s definitely moving around in there! I can feel her little kicks from the outside, too; but whenever I walk over to Travis so he can feel, baby stops kicking! This is one stubborn chica!  
Cravings:  I really wish I was craving something crazy and different…but it’s the same ol’ stuff: pasta, chocolate, pickles, ice cream, mac & cheese, Chipotle.
Symptoms: This week was much better! I still have some cramping, but the doctor checked me on Thursday and she said it was probably just some growing pains. I've also been getting Charlie horses pretty much every morning and sometimes in the middle of the night. And…I had to take Zofran on Monday. UGH. My doctor said hopefully the morning sickness won’t come back, but I’ll just have some waves of nausea. Let’s hope for neither and that Monday was just a fluke! I also got a flu shot Thursday, so I felt a little feverish on Friday. Last, this may not qualify as a symptom, but my hair will NOT fall out! I have the thickest hair on the planet and usually in the shower, I’ll lose about 50 hairs. Now, I lose like 2. I know some people would die to have thick hair, but trust me, it’s a huge pain! 
Workouts: 16 miles this week! I am officially getting off the treadmill every 6 minutes to pee. It takes me over an hour to run “40 minutes” if that makes any sense at all. 
Sleep: Great other than those Charlie horses! And getting up to pee, but what else is new. 
What I miss: A big glass of wine, running outside, my regular clothes…but honestly, not in a super huge way.  
Best moment this week: Hearing baby’s heartbeat on Thursday! Never gets old! 
Looking forward to: Getting some more things for the nursery! I am {hopefully} going to pick out a paint color this week! 


  1. Found your blog from the 5 on Friday link-up and just wanted to say hello! Way to go on staying active during pregnancy. I ran during mine, too, and it really helped me feel great. Congrats on your little girl!

  2. You look great! Love your bump!
    I didn't lose any hair until after Sophia was born and then it was HUGE handfuls. Can't wait to see what you decide for paint!

  3. You are looking great!! And aren't those night time Charlie Horses the WORST?! It was just the most horrible feeling waking up in the middle of the night with such strong pains!
