24 Weeks

Happy viability day to this little one!! This is a big milestone in a pregnancy even though we all want baby to stay put until June.

My OB appointment went great this morning. Baby’s heartbeat was 147. My uterus measured 2 weeks ahead which is still within the normal range. This OB (different from my regular OB) thinks this baby will probably be about the same size as the others I’ve had (around 8-8.5lbs).

Weekly update:

How far along: 24 weeks

How big is baby: size of an eggplant, about 12-13 inches long (this is the point when the apps I use start contradicting each other regarding baby’s length because babies start having bigger growth spurts at different times)

Symptoms: Still tired, but hanging in there. Some aches and pains in my backs a hips. I finally made it to a prenatal yoga class which felt amazing. Keeping my muscles somewhat flexible and stretched out has always been very beneficial in my previous pregnancies. I think it’s at least in part why I’ve been able to work up until my due date each time.

Movement: still as active as can be

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping mostly good. There was a night over the weekend where I was up from 4-7am (I was so wide awake that I didn’t even try to go back to sleep until 6:45am). The weighted blanket has definitely been helping getting me back to sleep when I wake up in the middle of the night. I don’t use it all night, just when I wake up and can’t get back to sleep.

Food cravings? tacos, fruity candy, chicken strips, salads

Anything making you queasy or sick? Mostly good, yesterday was an off morning and I ended up taking a Zofran. I haven’t had to take one for awhile

Next appointment: OB appt on 3/12
