24 weeks

Friends! I’m now 24 weeks pregnant. Or 6 months, if you are counting literally. This will also be the last month of my second trimester.

I have been so lucky over these last 4 weeks. I have had next to no symptoms, aside from daily heartburn, the nightly swelling of my legs and feet, and periodic Braxton Hicks contractions. Looking back at this time with Remy, I see that I was also feeling great and established a really productive routine during the day. This must be the magical time of pregnancy for me, at least. I cannot say the same for all mamas with great certainty. If only all pregnancies were this easy. ;-)))

Here are a few more facts about growing babe:

– he/she weighs about 1.3 lbs
– now measure him/her head to toe
– his/her skin has a pinky hue
– he/she can taste what I eat

So far, I’ve gained around 18 lbs. It’s more than I would have hoped for, but as long as we get a healthy little one, it is worth it!

16 weeks pregnant

16 weeks pregnantWell guys, I am finally at the long-awaited 16 week mark in my pregnancy! When the morning sickness initially settled in, my sister (who is also pregnant) had told me that everything would get better around this time. She was right! My symptoms are not nearly as bad, and although I feel much more tired than in my first trimester, my returning health has given me a new lease on life. I have even started going to the gym again! 

Here is a little update from Baby K. So much is happening this week! Also, I have finally got a bump! It seems to have come out of thin air, and appeared sometime last week. It will get much bigger in the next three weeks, and I cannot wait.

I hope that the baby is happy and healthy in its temporary home. In the meantime, I should probably stop jumping around. I’m just so happy!
