How far along? 24 Weeks!
How big is baby? She’s about 1.3lbsand measures about 11.8″ long from crown to heel, according to BabyCentre.ca.
Total weight gain/loss: I weighed myself a few days ago and I’ve gained a couple pounds. It’s hard to explain since I lost about 4-5lbs during my first trimester. I’ve since gained that weight back to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, plus another 8lbs. So really, I weigh about 128lbs.
Maternity Clothes? I had to go buy a couple new bras because a) the underwire in one of my bras “went” and b) my nude bra way too uncomfortable. I had a feeling that my boobs got bigger too, so I figured I’d try on a bigger size just in case. Umm, yeah, they did. LAME. Kyle said it’s a good thing, but I say, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall …”
Stretch marks? Still none. I just don’t think they’re going to happen.
Sleep: I’m starting to find that it’s getting really hard to get comfortable at night. The other night I was spooning with Kyle’s pillow after he left for work just for extra belly support. I may have to find another pillow for when he’s home though.
Movement: Lots, especially when I’m trying to relax. At my massage appointment on Friday I was laying on my back and she was kicking like crazy! Even the masseuse noticed and asked me afterwards. They must have been some pretty big kicks considering I was underneath a blanket and a sheet! What a little monster …
Food cravings: Still nothing out of the ordinary, but it feels like I’m ALWAYS hungry.
What I miss: Being comfortable and taking sinus medication. Now that the weather is starting to warm up I’m getting the worst sinus headaches. THE WORST. It’s awful.
What I am looking forward to: Painting the baby’s room. Because of recent current events in my family’s life, my mom and I have postponed painting. It’s not a huge rush, but it will be nice to get it done so we can buy furniture and have somewhere to set it up.
Milestones: I’ve done a little bit of baby-related shopping. Our travel system arrived at Babies R’ Us, so I put that together Saturday afternoon. (It’s soooo pretty!). I also found a really cute bedding set on Costco’s website for a crazy-good price, so I bought that too. Yay shopping!

Congratulations! You are well more farther along than I am… I’m only about 4.5 weeks. I envy your lack of stretch marks! Pre pregnancy, my body is riddled with little squiggly red lines. God can only imagine what I will look like in 35 weeks. When did you feel your first baby movement? This is my first child so I am unsure what to expect. Carpe Diem!
Congratulations to you as well! I think I first felt the baby move around 15-16 weeks. It wasn’t very defined – it was more like little flutters. I think pregnancy is different for every woman. This is my first as well, and I’m just taking things all in stride. The most important thing you can do is just ask if you think something is wrong or are unsure about something. It really helps to ease your mind!
I had to buy new bras 4 times during my pregnancy. I didn’t want to buy the plain, ugly nursing bras so I kept buying bigger sizes of regular bras until I HAD to buckle and get a couple of maternity bras. I was glad I did – they were SO comfortable and I wore them until Topher was almost a year old. So what if they were ugly – being comfy is more important :)
I hope I don’t have to buy more bras!! I’ll be so depressed if I do. I’m going to hold off ’til the bitter end to buy nursing/maternity bras. I am in denial over the size of my boobs, it’s sad.
