Janelle In Real Life: 24 week update!


24 week update!

We've hit 24 weeks, people and here's a bump update if you're interested!

How far along: 24 weeks

Total weight gain: Not sure on the number, but I'm right on track as of the last doctor's appointment!

Maternity clothes: some maternity clothes, along with regular clothes. I definitely can't wear regular pants, so maternity pants, leggings, or a dress are my go-to's now!

Stretch marks: still using bio oil and cocoa butter which I hope will prevent more stretch marks this time around

Miss anything: Not having heartburn!

Movement: All the time! His favorite time for doing aerobics is while I'm trying to fall asleep haha

Food craving: sugar! Right now, skittles especially.

Anything make you queasy or sick: Not if I eat regularly and stay on top of my heartburn (antacids and such)

Have you started to show yet: Definitely. Belly continues to grow!

Gender: Boy!

Labor signs: None of that.

Belly button in or out: still in!

Wedding rings on or off: on for now

Happy or moody most of the time: Mostly happy! Definitely trying to enjoy this stage of pregnancy.

Looking forward to: getting his little nursery set up! It's a slow process Since we're having to do a lot of shifting around, but I'm looking forward to getting everything together.

This sweet little one is now the length of an ear of corn! It's blowing my mind how quickly everything is going by. We're heading into the "viable" stage meaning that if he's born soon, he'll have a chance at surviving outside of the womb and it won't be considered a miscarriage. For some reason, knowing that is really comforting!
I've realized that since we found out we were having a little boy, I've totally relaxed about getting ready for his arrival. We have a good amount of stuff left over from his big brother and there's a lot less to get than the first time around. I still need to take an inventory and find out what we're missing, but preparing for baby #2 seems to be a little less stressful!

Hope you're all having a fab day! Now it's time for me to go find some skittles.
