24 Weeks

How far along?: 24 weeks
Baby's size: BK is the size of a cantaloupe
Total weight gain/loss: Around 12
Stretch marks?: None
Sleep?: It's been alright
Maternity clothes?: He's definitely a lot more noticeable when I wear them, so I've been showing him off lately! 
Best moment this week: Mom and Meg came over and had a sleepover right at the end of 24 weeks/the beginning of 25 weeks.  It was spontaneous and fun! :-)
Worst Moment: Got my first "you're so big" comments which were really hurtful.  I guess I should prepare myself for some more of those.
Symptoms: Went to the chiropractor for an initial appointment and got adjusted.  It may be a coincidence, but I really felt better
Cravings?: Nada
Miss Anything?: Pretzel sandwiches (can't have them because of the lunchmeat)
Movement: He's a mover and a shaker!
Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nothing in particular
Gender: B-O-Y!!!
What is baby up to?: From What to Expect When You're Expecting: "Your baby is about eight and a half inches long and weighs one and a half pounds, gaining steadily at a rate of six ounces per week. Much of that weight comes from accumulating baby fat, as well as from growing organs, bones, and muscle. Those little ears of his are getting sharper and can hear very loud sounds, from a yapping dog to a jackhammer. Also by now, that fabulous face is almost fully formed, complete with eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair. Is your baby a brunette, a blonde, or a redhead? Actually, right now his locks are white since there's no pigment yet."


  1. Sorry baby girl. I love that you're "so big"

  2. Love that little cantaloupe and his mama! You look beautiful, no matter what that hurtful lady said!
