24 Weeks

How far along? 24 Weeks

Total Weight Gain? 12 lbs.

Symptoms? The heartburn is still pretty unpleasant.

Stretch Marks? Just the one new one. I'm not sure why it's freaking me out like it is, but it is.

Sleep? Still not good. I have to wake up every single time I need to change positions, and I've been sleeping entirely on my side, which is not that comfortable.

Best Moment Last Week? I don't have one that sticks out. Every moment that it re-dawns on me I'm pregnant is a great moment.

Movement? Yes. :) It makes me so happy to feel her and actually know it's her. I don't notice the movement unless I'm sitting still and quiet, but it seems like every time I'm still and quiet, I fall asleep. That could be the problem.

Food Cravings? Milk. I am super excited though. My mom offered to stop at the nearest Casa Ole (the one two hours away) on her way back from her trip this weekend and get me some green dip!!

What I miss? I can't seem to put my pants on this week without falling over. I'm guessing that's just going to get worse.

What I am looking forward to? More movement, as usual. And painting the nursery!

Milestones? We hit viability this week. Although it's a terrifying thought, it's good to know she has a fighting chance if something happened.

How is Daddy?I'm not sure, since he's on the other side of the state. I'm going to assume though that he's bummed not to be here rubbing my belly.


  1. Rubbing you belly or propping you up so you don't tip over. I miss both of those things.

  2. ahhhh....

    sounds like things are exactly as they should be Julie

    you should ask the OB about a script for the heartburn, seriously I waited and waited and then when I finally couldn't take it, mentioned it and he gave me a prescription I was like a NEW WOMAN. Seriously.

    I'm so glad things are going so well. :)
