Week 24


How Far Along: 24 weeks (actually I'm 25 weeks tomorrow but I like to recap the week before)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Well last week at the doctors office it appeared that I had gained 18 pounds, then I have weighed myself a couple of times after that and I have come up with only 15 pounds. Including weighing myself on the Wii Fit and we all know the Wii fit don't lie. So who really knows? I did have a sweater and boots on the day I weighed myself at the doctor's office so it might have been off a bit. I need a scale at home so I can weigh myself in the nude.

Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants. Shirts are a combination of regular and maternity. But getting to be mainly maternity.

Gender: BOY!! Eli Tree

Movement: I've been feeling him more and more lately. It doesn't feel like swift "kicks" it mainly just feels like he's rolling around all in there.

Sleep: I've been sleeping pretty well.

What I miss: I have started to miss diet coke a lot. I was drinking regular coke but cut that out once I hit 18(ish?) lbs so now I just miss coke in general.

Cravings: Nothing in particular. I honestly feel like my eating habits have been the same minus a few cravings here and there.

Symptoms: I thought my heartburn was bad last week but this week it has been AWFUL. Like so bad my eyes will start watering from the pain. Also, insecruity....does that count as a pregnancy symptom? Comments from other people sure don't help.

Best Moment this week: Purchasing the nursery furniture! It's so exciting to start getting things ready for our sweet little Eli!

And my favorite husband quote of the week:

I don't have an exact quote from Luke this week, but it was fun to talk about what Eli would be doing this time next year at Thanksgiving. How he will be 8 months old and probably moving and scooting all around. So fun!

Gorgeous photo! Your hair looks wonderful here...curl down?

And I know it's easier said than done, but don't listen to rude things people say. Don't let other makes you insecure!!

Samantha said...

Megan you look beautiful in this picture! You definitely have the preggo glow!

Happiness Is... said...

You look great! I think having a diet coke here and there is fine...I eliminated them for the first trimester but have added them back and am just fine. A diet coke only has 40mg of caffeine and most doctors are okay with 200mg, so you could theoretically have 5 (not that I would!) Unless it's the artificial sweetener you're avoiding...but I don't have the discipline!

"The Mrs." said...

So cute!! I love the quote's from your husband! :)

jen mccrady said...

The LaJeunesse Family said...

Lauren said...

Kristen said...

Just "la la la" those comments away that are making you feel bad. You are one beautiful momma to be! Love the hair!

Shannon said...

You look really good! I love your hair.

CBD said...

I love your hair too! You look great and you shouldn't feel insecure about anything. Enjoy this time in you life :)

Courtney said...

you look adorable! (but what does your shirt say? i'm nosy ;) )

Ashley said...

You're the cutest! :) Little Eli must be growing some hair in there with all that heartburn! Don't listen to people and their rude comments. I swear that people lose all sense of appropriatness when it comes to talking to a pregnant woman.

Katy said...

Echoing that your hair looks fabulous! And I totally get the insecurity thing...which for me turns into anxiety...and then the sleep kinda goes. Sigh.

Rebecca Jo said...

OK - I'm curious to what your shirt says too ....

And you totally knew you'd have heartburn with this baby that has a mullet going on already! :)

You look beautiful!!! Got that pregnancy glow!!!

Shannon said...

You look absolutely adorable AND you have great hair! Seriously, between you and your husband, Eli will have awesome hair!

Lauren said...

You look so fabulous! Love all your updates!

Brandi @ Our Journey said...

You look so cute!!! I can't wait to see the nursery all set up. Do you mind sharing what crib you ended up going with?

Perfectly Imperfect said...

You are so cute!! Seriously, I love your little belly! And your hair? Fabulous. I have major hair envy.

Don't listen to peoples' comments. Everyone and their brother thinks they're allowed to have an opinion on a pregnant woman. That was the worst part of pregnancy imo. But try and let it just roll off!

Candice @ ChiaSeedMe said...

You look adorable! Love the outfit and hair. Just ignore people's comments - I can't even possibly imagine what they could be saying to you.

Sweet Simplicity said...

Your hair looks fantastic! I can't wait to see you and *Eli* on Friday!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Rach@In His Hands said...

Awww, I love following along with your pregnancy! You are one adorable prego lady.

thegreenestgrass said...

When I was pregnant with Wyatt - I stood by the belief that my flip flop and summer dress outfits CLEARLY weighed at least 10lbs... so of course the sweater and boots weigh 3!

Megan said...

So I NEVER comment on people's blog...I'm just the weirdo that reads/stalks and never actually shows my self:) BUT, I had to say how cute you look pregnant. You are officially glowing! Also, I'm dieing to see your shirt from the front!

RN Mama said...

You look wonderful! I'm loving your hair like that, and what does your shirt say? "Tis the season to be pregnant?"

Michelle said...
