V-Day! (24 Weeks)

Holy moly - I cannot believe that I am already at this point.  24 weeks.  That means that if this little guy made the poor decision to show up now he would at least have a fighting chance.  Not that I feel like his arrival is imminent or anything.  No signs of anything going on down there.  Hopefully it stays that way for quite some time - I am not ready for him to be here yet.

And on to this week.

How far along? 24w0d and the size of a cantaloupe. Around 12 inches long and weighing over one pound.   He possibly has some hair on top of his head at this point.

Weight loss/gain:  +19.5 lbs.  Trying to rein in the weight gain since I would really like to keep under the 35 lb mark.

Maternity clothes: Some.  I'm wearing maternity jeans and a t-shirt today since I didn't feel like looking like a stuffed sausage.  I was able to wear a non-maternity dress the other day and it fit fine.

Symptoms:  My colon still sucks (and coconut water tastes like ass) and I was in pain after running Wednesday night.  I'll be really bummed if I have to cut my mileage down this early this time since I was able to make it to 36 weeks with Andrew.

Sex (of baby):  It's a BOY!!!

Name: Still no progress and we haven't even talked about it in weeks. I should probably be feeling a greater sense of urgency with this, but I really don't.

Sleep: Not too bad, except Wednesday night. I've been sleeping pretty soundly and luckily Andrew is getting back to his normal sleep schedule.

Best moment this week? It was kind of a 'meh' week so nothing really happened.

Movement: Yes.  Apparently my favorite sleep position is about to be a thing of the past because 2.0 doesn't seem to like it.  He was kicking/poking up a storm when I was trying to fall asleep last night.

Food cravings:  Still produce.  Loving strawberries, blueberries and grapefruit right now.

Belly button in or out?  In

What I miss?  A decent long run.

What I'm looking forward to?  Next Tuesday and getting to hear his heartbeat again.

Milestones:  Viability day!!

What I'm nervous about:  How much daycare is going to cost.  C'mon powerball jackpot!!

And me this morning.  Couldn't get a good pic in my normal spot so you'll have to settle for the nice bathroom shot:


  1. You're adorable! And happy (double for you!) mother's day!

    1. Thank you! I hope you had a great Mother's Day as well!
