Preggy update #8

How far along? 24 weeks

Total weight gain? Loss of 300g

Maternity Clothes? Not really. Only a few items but need to get more with the colder days coming

Stretch Marks?  Still no new ones yet 

Sleep: Sleeping well. Still haven’t really been waking in the middle of the night yet. Have started with some leg cramps but I just flex my foot and the cramp is gone.

Best moment this week: Extra strong kicks being felt now. 

Worst moment this week: Don’t really have any worse moments

Miss Anything? Being able to take flu medication

Movement: Definitely feeling baby move now

Food cravings: I don’t know how this works. I am liking Tempo chocolates and Schweppes Granadilla. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. I can go most days without a touch of nausea

Gender: We found out it’s a boy. And we think we have decided on a name 🙂

Labor Signs: Nope, not yet

Symptoms:  On and off headaches, bleeding gums, back ache now and again, blocked/stuffy nose

Belly Button in or out?  Starting to come out

Wedding rings on or off? Still on 

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy

What I’m looking forward to: My next appointment 12 May. Feels like it’s been so long since I saw this baby last. Oh and date night with hubby on Saturday! 

What I’m nervous about: Starting to worry about labour and birth. I really want to try for a vbac. Just hoping for optimal birthing conditions and that the doctor is in favour.


Baby Name? We’ve decided on Ethan Brent.

Movement? Yip

Thoughts: Wish I was more diligent with posting on this blog. I am still trying to take everything in with this pregnancy and enjoy every single moment.
