Pregnancy – Week 24 Update

Hello!

I am six months pregnant today (like, how?) and our baby is the size of a cantaloupe (my other app – Ovia – says an eggplant, which makes a lot more sense to me than a cantaloupe though). 🙂

Progress Photos

Weight Gained

Didn’t weigh myself. I find myself getting too obsessive with this sometimes, and as long as my doctor is happy with it and I am feeling good, that’s all I am trying to care about.

Workouts

My workouts are still the same. Like I have said since the beginning, I feel the best when I am active – even when I am exhausted. I am walking about 30 minutes every morning (and sometimes again at night with Chris) and then doing a yoga class, a barre class, and 2-3 other random strength training sessions every week.

Symptoms/Body Changes

I have been getting some random back pain this week, especially when I am really active or when I sit still for too long. Changing positions usually helps, but sometimes it feels like all I want to do is crack my back really good, but I sadly can’t.

I have also been getting really sore feet. This may have to do with how much I have been walking and how warm it has been here, but who knows. It’s not bad enough to actually affect anything, but I do notice it.

My exhaustion is also coming back big time. I basically check out after 4pm and almost never make plans at night anymore. I have also been feeling sick again in the mornings if I don’t eat right away. At least it’s a good catalyst to get out of bed!

Movement

We certainly have an active baby, but only when I am still haha. When I am moving all around during the day I rarely feel any movement, but the second I sit down and relax our baby is doing flips in there. I also find that he or she moves a lot when I talk to it! That makes me smile like a fool every single time.

Sleep

My sleep is okay. Thank goodness for the Snoogle pillow, but the bigger my belly gets, the harder it gets to move around in the night. I am doing pretty well with not sleeping on my back, but I do like to switch from my right to left side in the night which is starting to be quite the activity. I think I elbow poor Chris in the head like, ten times a night. Getting up to go to the bathroom and then getting back in bed is also proving to be quite difficult. And I know this is only going to get worse over the next 16 weeks….

Appreciating/Missing

I am really appreciating the daily movements I feel from our little bud. I am by nature a big worrier, and it so helps to put my mind at ease whenever I feel that going on in my stomach. I am not terrified to go to prenatal appointments anymore like I was in the beginning, which is also wonderful to get to actually enjoy them.

I miss wine. Big time.

Baby Items/Nursery

Nothing changed since last week. However, we did do a really good deep clean of our entire house which makes me feel amazing. It has been on my to-do list for a while, and it made me feel so much more prepared for our baby to get here. Don’t get me wrong – I still have a big Excel document to-do list to get through, but this was a big thing to check off!

Looking Forward To

Father’s Day this weekend! Even though Chris isn’t technically a father yet, I still think it’s something to celebrate. 🙂

Next On To-Do List

  1. Schedule the classes and hospital tour that I never got around to last week

  2. Order some new maternity clothes – I am starting to get sick of wearing the same things over and over again

  3. Clean out/re-organize all drawers, cabinets, and closets in our house to make room for all the baby stuff we are acquiring
