Week 24

I didn't have time to take a cute picture this week, I was thinking of stopping writing in this blog all together because of my "security breech" but I know I will want to have these weekly updates on record. 

Symptoms?
I had an eventful day that ended up with me at my OB's office, who sent me to L&D to be checked for early labor.  Thankfully it was a total false alarm, I was a little embarrassed but totally didn't think they would send me to the hospital!  The OB assured me that it happens all the time.  At my 24 week appointment, the OB also told me that I was measuring small so they will do an ultrasound at the next appointment to get a more accurate measurement.  I also am starting to get really bad heartburn!

Stretch marks?
No!  Still oiling up every day though. 

Food cravings?
I mostly crave fruit still.  Everything I want is on the sweet side!  My doctor told me to make sure I'm eating enough because I'd only gained 4 lbs at my 24 week appointment.  I feel like I am eating like crazy though, but I'm grabbing for snacks even more often. 

Movement?
Part of my mishap earlier this week was due to me not feeling any movement for at least 48 hours.  (It was also due to concern over leaking amniotic fluid, which turned out to be nothing.)  I just keep telling myself that the baby probably turned over, and with my anterior placenta, it's normal that I wouldn't feel as much.

Workouts?
I took it a little lighter this week, just walking and a little yoga.

Sleep?
I'm having a hard time sleeping because of the heartburn!  I'm definitely starting to need more and more pillows all around my body too. 

Gender?
GIRL!!! 

Maternity Clothes?
I just want it to be warm enough to wear a dress.  Is that too much to ask?

What I Miss?
I just miss not worrying about every little thing.  Its exhausting!

  1. That is definitely the worst part of pregnancy - the worrying! And I hate to tell you, it doesn't go away after they come out. haha. But you just have to keep in mind that MOST of the time, babies are born 100% healthy, at the right time. I know it's easier said than done, though.

  2. Heartburn was the worst when pregnant. Hopefully you can find some relief! I had to take tums and zantac to keep it minimal.
